Bought Dunn / Balt. twice, then realized I needed Brk.

Accidentally bid on 1975 minis a few times rather than the full size counterpart. Thought I got a tremendous deal on a PSA 9 Carter only to realize the error moments later.

Default Wahoo Sam

Yes, I have done this.
I have done it more than once in the Topps era quest.
Yes I might do it again.

Funny one of the more extreme cases was involving the same player as yours.
I bought a 1915 CJ Sam Crawford, slabbed by SGC (my preference TPG)
This was after checking my spreadsheet and seeing that I needed it...
It was a nice card, and fairly expensive for my modest budget.

Later I find that my spreadsheet didn't account for the small stack of PSA cards I had , and yep...I already had Wahoo Sam in 1915 PSA.

Getting old has its advantages too, (not just disadvantages) since I found a few other cards that I forgot I had that same day...it was like Christmas in July!

Fast forward a week or so later and I was the proud owner of Joshua Clark's T206, not HOFer Fred Clarke of Pittsburgh. I still have it though as a reminder.

Just imagine the deal you could get on a Wagner!

I set a snipe for a card a couple years ago and a week later received some cheesey gemstone in the mail- I checked- sure enough I entered the wrong item number into the snipe software. I've learned to copy/ paste

Funny, I'm ecstatic when I find a $5 bill in an old coat pocket. I can't imagine the jubilation of finding cards you forgot you had.

And what's with Wahoo Sam? I'm sure he's sick of being forgotten. He'd probably blame Cobb for these mix-ups.

This story takes the cake! Was it gem mint?

I appreciate everyone sharing their stories of collecting blunders.

I remember when JC won a blue E221 of LA. He was super excited until I told him he already had that same card with the same color background. I think he had the market cornered on them for a time. As for me, for buying, I have so many stories it's not even funny. I know I have at least acquired several cards which I already had. That isn't ordinary?
