Making Foolish Mistakes
I'll be the first to admit I don't always think logically (or economically) when it comes to cards. Case in point: 2018 Leaf Heroes of the Game Cut Signature.
This box goes against everything I'm into as a card collector: verifiable checklists, plentiful base cards, low-risk boxes, and value.
For the whopping price of $34.99, you get one blaster box filled with one "cut" autograph card. I say the word "cut" very loosely as this hardly meets the standard definition of the cut autograph. They are cut cards in the sense that they were printed onto a giant sheet and cut up into smaller cards to be signed later.
The box advertises Cal Rikpen Jr. and Joe Montana as autographs. It makes no mention who else might be inside.
Time to open. Drum roll please..........
Johnny Manziel? Oh fuck right the fuck off. I hate myself for buying this. It's not even numbered.
I knew it wouldn't be Montana or Ripken. But this joke? Uggggghhhhhhhh.
Unless someone wants to shoot me any sort of offer on this card, I'm throwing it up on eBay on a 99 cent auction. I should be able to recoup $10.
What a dangerous game to play.
