Proud Parent

After putting my Terrence Murphy SP Authentic rookie card into its final resting place—first into a Pro Mold ultra thick screw down card holder, then into a four-pocket Ultra Pro plastic page, then into a UniKeep hard view case binder—I left the seller some great feedback. After all, it is a sharp card and he did send it fast and well secure.

After posting the feedback, I decided to see how well other Terrence Murphy rookie cards had sold for. In the last month, no one has paid more for a Terrence Murphy SP Authentic rookie card. I paid $9 more than the next highest auction winner and $34 more than the lowest. I’m not sure if I should be depressed about that, or proud.

Oh, hell, what am I talking about? Of course I’m proud. Look at the thing. It’s amazing. The thing is perfect. Three colors, an autograph, and a serial number that ends in 0. What could be better than that? It's moments like these are why I collect football cards.

Would it be weird if I put a picture of it in my wallet?
