I have been working on the 2006 Upper Deck Artifacts Auto-Facts Signatures set for about 9 months now. I discovered this set when one of the ladies at A Cardboard Problem showed off a Nick Swisher auto. I looked into it, and decided to try and build it. The set contains many great current and former players. At 89 cards strong, it has been a challenging chase. I only need 7 cards to complete the set. One of the cards I need is the Pedro Martinez. There has been one listed on eBay for the last two weeks. The guy re-listed it yesterday after it sitting a week with no bids. The problem I am having is; I don't want to pay $50 bucks for the thing. I offered the guy $40 bucks for it. He counter offered $45 plus shipping. The card is serial numbered to only 100 copies, but I don't think it's a $50 dollar card. I was so close to firing the PayPal gun on it. Somehow, I willed myself away from it. I really want to complete the set, but hell, $50 bucks?!
Out of spite, I won two jersey cards from the set. Got both for $5.65 shipped.
Have you ever wanted a card so badly, and not been unable to convince yourself to buy it?
