Grand Cards: Sadness

Sadness


An eBay auction for a Granderson card that I've never seen before has devolved into a bidding war with me and another bidder. I first bid on the card four days ago and bumped it up this morning. I put in my absolute, absolute max on it and was promptly outbid again. Now I'm out and somebody is getting a card that I didn't even know existed. It is a 2001 Card from the Mankato Mashers' team set.

For those of you that are not as disgustingly aware of baseball teams as myself, the Mankato Mashers (now the Mankato Moondogs) are a team in the Northwoods League--a summer collegiate league that takes active college players and plays a full summer schedule using wood bats in preparation for the professional ranks. I've swiped the picture on this one for all to see.

While I didn't know about this card, a certain somebody did, and mentioned it all the way back in 2006. So, while it appears that I have missed the boat on this card, if anybody ever sees one in the future and wants to keep me abreast, I would forever be in your debt.

  1. This is why you should snipe and not get involved in bidding wars.

    Geez Dan, your knowledge of ridiculously obscure baseball teams never ceases to amaze me. I'm going to assume that we've never driven past Mankato on a road trip, as I have yet to hear about this team. Since you didn't win the card anyway, I'll save you the added grief of asking how much you bid :)
