134 doubles purchased for 1 "NEW" card

Lock me up and throw away the key.

I have legit lost my mind.

I purchased a lot of 135 Andrew McCutchen cards for $25 just so I could get 1 "new" card.

Why the quotes around new?

Well because even though it's new to the spreadsheet, it's just a restamped card I already own.

I have been looking for any and all buybacks of Cutch that I can get my hands on.  There's been a few 65th anniversary cards, Rediscover Topps, Bowman 70th anniversary released in the past few years.  I wish there were actually more to chase down.

The most plentiful are the 2015 10th Anniversary buybacks of Allen & Ginter.  I showed off a post last year begging people to help me locate any of these.  Since that post I have seen only one become available for sale.  Even though they aren't stamped I feel like the print run on these has to be less than 10 as they infrequently hit the market for any particular card more than once.  Hell, they could all be unnumbered 1/1s.

Anyway this new addition to the spreadsheet brings my A&G buyback total to 8.  This is my 4th mini of the bunch.  I like the framed mini buybacks more because they have the A&G 2015 frame around the card making it seem like a new card.

The other 134 Cutch cards?  Well...I'm going to verify that I'm not missing any of them but I am 99% sure I have them all.

This is what I will be cross checking over the next few days.

Should be fun...


  1. awesome, i've done that before. Also Cutch's walk off the other day was pretty awesome I was actually watching the game at the time.

  2. I've done that before with Tino lots.

  3. You're not crazy..because even though they're dupes to you, they're different cards. If you bought 135 of the same card that would be crazy ;)

    At least you've got a big stack of trade bait now.

  4. Congratulations on picking up the buyback. I've done this a few times with my Tony Gwynn collection. Luckily I know enough Gwynn collectors who can use my doubles.
