So here I was just 45 minutes from being released from work surfing on eBay when out of the blue I spotted an Andrew Miller autograph with just two hours left and only one bid for just barely $3.00 dollars. Almost instantly my “STEAL” alert light came on at the idea of winning an Andrew Miller autograph for less than $10.00 (almost impossible these days). The card is from some 2007 Upper Deck product I barely recall and I have missed out on the autograph version about 5 times in the last 2 months.
The card is gorgeous don’t get me wrong but in my excitement I failed to inspect the card properly. By the time I won it for just $3.26 I felt more proud than ever before. I beat the system and won an awesome Andrew Miller autograph to add to my collection. When I finally did win it, I yelled to Tatiana to come look at my victory. Here is the exact conversation.
Mario – TATIANA!!!!
*Tatiana takes a break from feeding our son*
Tatiana – Can you wait five minutes?
Mario – NOOOO, this is important!!!
*Tatiana walks over to room and finds me on eBay*
Mario – I just won the cheapest Andrew Miller autograph ever!
*Mario refreshes eBay auction and scrolls to the photo*
Mario – What the %$^&??????
Tatiana – Wow, you called me over for a base card?
*Mario hangs head in shame*
