These posts normally start with a question:
How much is the most you've spent on a single purchase or single card?
I've answered this question on occasion myself, once here. At the end of said post, I reported having spent less than $20 on 1 single card, and that one wasn't even for me!
Well, that price has almost doubled in the last few weeks! I managed to sell a few things on eBay, and one of them netted me quite a bit more than I had expected. After paying the associated fees and giving a little love to my bank account, I decided to splurge and buy a card that I've been looking for for a few years. 2011 to be exact. Topps issued several inserts including one of my favorite pitcher, Jamie Moyer, that had coins inserted in the card. I don't normally go for manufactured relics, as extolled here. Yet, for some inexplicable reason, this particular card got it's hooks in me, deep, and I just had to get me one of them!
So, here it is, in all it's 1962 coppery goodness! The 2011 Topps Heritage '62 Mint for Jamie Moyer.
Question: When one calculates the "most spent" on a card, does one include postage? This one set me back just over $27, shipped. plus another $2.60 for the fancy magnetic case to put this uber-thick card in... (almost 4mm thick!!)
and I knocked a white whale out! (the only card I had considered for this moniker at this point)

Have a GReat day!!
