I have lost out on numerous cards over the last few years, mostly because I was too tentative and figured the card would pop up again for less money. Unfortunately that's not always the case, but this time it actually worked out for me. I had wanted the Topps Supreme Kershaw/Puig dual auto /25 ever since I first saw it on ebay. The card had a super clean look that really caught my eye. The Puig auto on all 25 copies is a sticker, but certain copies of the card had an on-card auto from Kershaw. I had never seen a single copy of this card up for auction on ebay, and the ones that were listed as "Buy it Now," all had ludicrous price tags.
About three months ago I finally saw a redemption for this card listed at auction. I had a strong feeling that some people would stay away from this, because of the never ending nightmare that is Topps Redemptions. Knowing that the card was now live, I figured I had to pull the trigger this time. Sure enough, I won the auction, redeemed my redemption, and waited about a month and a half before Topps finally got around to sending me the card (Typical Topps). Lucky for me, I got an on card auto of Kershaw. Thanks for stopping by. Here it is:
