Keep me away from Ebay...

...really. I have some awesome stuff coming. I put a bid on this 1948 Bowman Stan Musial RC. I had put the bid on it and saw it get bid to my maximum amount a few days before it went off. Thinking that I would be outbid at any moment, I went ahead and spent my budgeted amount on several other items.

I kept watch on the card, waiting for the moment that I was going to be outbid, and it never came.

Ooops....


Yeah, so I now have a 1948 Bowman Stan Musial 'Rookie' card on the way. I'm in just a little trouble with the ole Wifey Poo. Had to take her out for drinks last night and I'm thinking that I'll be 'paying' for it for a while. Dang.
This isn't the first time I out a bit on a card thinking that I wouldn't get it. Remember this card? My oh-so-wonderful 1955 Phil Rizzuto? The difference between the Musial and Rizzuto is that I had not imbibed any alcohol this time. Probably one of Max's favorite stories? The time I had some beverages, bid on the Rizzuto, talked to him on AIM for a while, then "Oh shit dude, I just won that Rizzuto!!! Oops!" Hahaha. Good times.
Anyone have any other cool stories about mistakenly winning cards? Oh, by the way, don't get me wrong, I'm stoked that I won the Musial, and yes I could afford it hahaha.
