I'm not sure if that is exactly the right word, but my feelings have alternated been that and regret. Maybe not regret per se, something a little less strong. How about a nostalgic pang of some sort. I have officially begun the break-up of my Granderson collection.
I joked about this at the start of the month, but I really was serious, to a degree. Recall "The Plan," if you're so inclined. Late last week, I overcame the barrier that was having never sold a card on eBay and listed this little guy for sale:
It sold last night.
I also decided to play around with some things as "BIN/OBO" listings. I put together a complete set of 2008 Triple Threads Autographed Cards. For the moment, it is still listed up there. I also tossed up an Autographed Printing Plate from 2007 UD Black, that I took a shining to at the time despite the fact that it is, in fact, ugly.
That 1/1 sold between the time I went to bed on Saturday and woke up on Sunday.
And with that, the selective dismantling of everything that I've built over the past three years has begun. There goes that nostalgia again. But I do think that it is a good thing. It is nice to see a paypal account with something greater than $0.00 in it, for one. It's nice to feel like I have the freedom to look around eBay and actually buy *gasp* other cards that I might like or could be used to expand the rest of my collection.
So far, I haven't made the leap to list any cards that I really like or have a major attachment to. Maybe I never will. For now, I've just dipped my toe in the pool, but I've got to say, I'm getting used to the temperature.
