We are going to the World Series and I am so excited. I hope it's a great World Series and we can pull it off against the Phillies. I wouldn't be surprised if it goes down to 7 games and it's a dog fight the whole way. Can't wait til Wednesday. (image courtesy of Sooz)

My not so exciting first ever 1/1

It's been a long time since I've blogged but I haven't had much to blog about. I significantly curbed my card purchases, well at least in my eyes. So I haven't really come across anything interesting until now.

A few weeks back I bought a few packs of ticket to stardom to see how I'd do. Sometimes packs are like lotto tickets. You buy the $1 scratch offs and you might win a free ticket, $1 or $2 but every so often you'll get that $20, $40 or $100 ticket. That's the one we're always looking for.

Well, needless to say I pulled my first 1/1 card. At least that's what Topps says it is.

While I was excited to pull the card, I'm a skeptic at heart. So we look up 2009 reagan on eBay and see what we have:

This one is available on ebay

And these have already sold

So 1/1? Doesn't seem like it. Not sure what makes my card a 1/1 vs all the others that have sold on eBay. It's a rather disappointing end to something that could've been epic and exciting for me. I don't believe in artificial 1/1's. If a card is someone's jersey # that doesn't make it a 1/1 anymore than any of the other numbers in the sequence.

I'm sure one of these days I'll pull a 1/1 card that's unique and exciting. Either that or win the lottery, whichever.
