I have only 2:

1) Bought a Mike Trout Gold Ref Auto BGS 9.5/10 for $400 and sold it for $500.

2) Bought a Mike Trout Blue Ref Auto for $10 and sold it for $250.

Do the math and see the money left on the table now.

In no particular order...


One of my favorite cards I have pulled


Sold for around $150 just before his stuff skyrocketed


Pulled the same week as the one below


Wish I got this graded before I sold it


Sold for a HUGE loss

But on the flip side, I have had some really good sales for example:


Sold the day SPx came out for around $350

I don't really know any specific card I wish I wouldn't have sold, but a collection. Back in the mid 90's, I had the second largest collection of Jerry Rice cards. About 1100 different cards total. I was around 16 at the time and hadn't gotten a job yet. Well having no money to continue my collection, I sold every last card except his rookie. About a month after I sold them, I found a job and could have continued to collect him. I tried to start another Rice collection a few years later, but never had the motivation.

Got a few Trout refs (2009 & 2011 BC) in a trade. I'm NOT a prospector, had only barely heard the name before. Sold a couple 2009s for like 40-50 ea to a hardcore Angels PCer. Had 3 blue and 4 gold 2011 BC. Sold all 7 for about 150.

Traded a 2011 Finest orange refractor Trout auto for about 70 bucks trade value for cards that I can't even remember before the season started. Really wish I could get that one back.

My 3 are as follows:

2007 UD Black Dual Patch Auto Prince Fielder /5 - Got damaged by the post office.
2009 Bowman Draft Gold Refractor Auto Mike Trout /50 - Sold it for $400.00 in 2010. Now is a $2,000 card.
2010 Topps Tribute Josh Hamilton Dual Jersey Auto /50 - Been having a desire to PC him.

And to make things more postive, the card I was really happy to give up:

2010 Panini Crown Royal Royalty Jersey Auto Brett Favre /20 that I traded for a the Josh Hamilton Auto above and a 1958 Topps Mickey Mantle. I still have the mickey mantle and is in a 8 or a 9 condition. Really pleased with the trade I made.

I had the ruth triple with a pinstripe at one point too! Believe mine was /10 tho. Sick card it would be on the list of ones I wish I could have kept onto.

1. Dwade / Iverson Dual Pristind Auto #3/5
Sold when I was just starting to figure out the ol interwebs... got $500... could have worse but still wish I had that one.
