Bidding Under the Influence #21

Date: December 30, 2022
Time of Bid: 02:26:14 AM
Card: 1984 Topps #8 Don Mattingly  
Price: $9.01 (+$3.00 Shipping)
What Was I Thinking?:
A bid at almost 2:30 in the morning?  Go to bed, dude.
Eh, there are dozens of poorer decisions I could be making at that hour.  I'm on the last few days of Christmas break, and the worst thing I do is order a Mattingly rookie card (one I've never owned before), things are going pretty well.  Twelve bucks shipped is fair, these look to be going in the $10-15 range.  The centering is laughable, and there's a bit of paper chipping on the back, but who cares?  This thing will eventually go into a binder, which I'm sure will rile up the collecting police on Twitter.
So be it.
