A couple of Days ago, I got a hobby box of 2012 Gypsy Queen from my LCS. I was happy to discover that one of my guaranteed autographed cards was a Cub, Marlon Byrd. Now, he's not one of the biggest players available, but anytime you van get a hit of someone from your favorite team, that's a good thing, right?
Well, sure enough, just DAYS after I pull this card, the Cubs swing a deal with the Red Sox to send Byrd to Boston in exchange for pitcher Michael Bowden. Hey, it sucks, but these things happen.
Except......guess whose auto/jersey rookie card I JUST got rid of on ebay last month.
Yeah, you guessed it.
