2017 NSCC #9 – I’m Still Dumb

A couple years ago, I outlined how terrible my memory is by showing cards I bought at the NSCC that I already owned (or that accidentally bought twice at the show).  Well, it happened again.  This time, it was on a larger scale since I had a bigger budget.

Still no real excuse for a lot of these as I had my checklists ready and out on my phone constantly, and even tried to update them each night when I got back.

There were more that what I’m about to show below, but I’m focusing on cards that haven’t been posted on the blog, like various refractors and a Leaf Limited card #/749.  I’m hoping to get a little more organized for the next round in 2019, but time will tell.


1998 Fleer Tradition Diamond Standouts

I won this rather unmemorable insert in an ebay lot many years back.  It’s been sitting in my binder ever since.

1999 Topps Chrome Fortune 15

You’d think I would remember a colorful piece like this, but I didn’t recall that I found it at the 2015 NSCC.  I’ll try not to go 3 for 3.

2005 Donruss Classics Team Colors

The same was true of this insert, numbered to 800.  I probably didn’t even check. After all, I’ll remember a lower numbered insert, right?

2015 Topps Museum Collection Copper

Another I assumed I didn’t have but got in 2015.  Since it’s a 2015 card, it was an easy (but wrong) guess that I couldn’t possibly have bought a same year parallel.


1996 Donruss Hit List #/10000

This one came from a COMC binge at some point in 2015.

1997 Pinnacle Totally Certified Platinum Red #45 – #/3999

There are two different cards in this set of Gwynn. I have them both, but have this twice over now. The first was from a COMC purchase in 2014.

2002 Upper Deck Prospect Premieres Heroes of Baseball

This one stings.  There are 10 different Gwynns in the set, but this is the only one I have….twice. The first time was at a 2016 card show I haven’t talked about yet.


1998 Leaf Fractal Foundations #157 Frank Thomas CC – #/3999

From 2016 COMC.  This is a confusing set and ’90 Leaf reprints are everywhere. I really should have been more careful.

2015 Bowman Chrome Rookie Recollections

This was from the 2015 NSCC and another case where I didn’t think I would have bought a 2015 card at the 2015 show.

2005 Origins Materials Jersey

This is the original stupid.  I bought this same card twice at the 2017 show.  I didn’t update the legacy collections all that well, but boy my memory sucks enough to not remember something form earlier in the weekend.


2003 SP Authentic #106 Kerry Wood RA – #/2500

Another 2015 NSCC purchase and honestly it’s one I should have caught pretty easy if I would have looked.

2005 Origins Old Judge Materials Jersey

There’s something about those Origins relics, I guess. I bought this one twice at the show as well.


2010 Topps Chrome Target Exclusive Refractors

I bought this twice at the show as well.  It’s not very memorable and probably was pretty cheap both times.

2013 Topps Allen and Ginter Framed Mini Relics

Lastly was this third relic card that I bought twice at the show.  I really need to not take anything for granted next time around and check my lists.  Of course if I buy things twice in the same day (which is possible), then who knows.
