A Blogger Had Me Targeted

My Andrew McCutchen collection is pretty familar around the card blogs.  Unfortunately I tend to not be too involved with checking email very often.

Evidently I missed an opportunity to add an Andrew McCutchen card to the collection by not checking email. 

Instead I noticed it when I checked eBay for new McCutchen cards and noticed the Target exclusive 2020 Update red parallel was listed.

It had a very reasonable buy-it-now price and the seller had immaculate feedback.
So I bought it.

A few days later it was in my mail box with a note from Jim of the blogger profile GCRL and current author of Cards As I See Them

Have you ever made a purchase with another blogger, not knowing it was them?


  1. It's not exactly what you asked, but I did buy a couple of cards from a former blogger on Twitter a while back, and didn't go well. Because of the disappointing outcome, it ended up being the first, and last time, that I've ever bought anything on Twitter.

  2. Not that I know of. GCRL has quite the inventory.

  3. Maybe. My memory sucks. I feel like I might have. Last summer I bought two cards off on Sportlots. The seller was Adam over at ARPSmith's Sportscard Obsession. I recognized the dealer name and wanted to support his store, but he refunded the money and sent the cards anyways which was really generous.
