I understand the same card has sold for around the same price now, but the value would continue to go up as less of them exist no matter who the player is
Wow! After reading 8 pages of the bellyaching, someone finally uses some sensible open market logic.
Essentially you have made the last card of this run a 1/1 as you have the other four in your collection. As there are probably other Gresham collectors out there, the value of that last card is not linear to the other cards you have acquired.
If the seller had known that 3/5 cards were already in a singular private collection, I guarantee he would have not sold it for $20 as the scarcity made it more valuable, although still relative to the low demand of the player.
