For the past couple of weeks, I have been desperately looking for a misplaced card in my house. I had it on my special card stand and cannot remember for the life of me where it went after I did some cleaning on the stand. Did I throw it away with some junk papers I had on there? Did I put it in a random box? Did it fall behind something?
So far, I have dug through all of the boxes I have used recently, for sorting, checked behind the obvious places it could have fallen, found the envelope it originally came in which was in the trash, so I searched the trash...with gloves on of course and I have also looked in other card stacks that were on that stand as well.
NO SUCH LUCK.
This is worse than the time that I mistakenly added sugar free creamer in my coffee. And that was pretty bad I may add.
*takes a sip feeling lucky that it doesn't have the sugar free taste*
I have lost cards before, who hasn't, and they usually pop up a few days later when I think of a spot they could be. This card is different. I have no idea where else to look as I have looked and re-looked everywhere possible. The even bigger problem is, it's not a card I can just go out and replace. It's a 1/1.
THIS IS THE ONLY VERSION OF IT!!!
It's the same amount of pictures I have of it. ONE.
This 1/1 printing plate features 6 comediens including my favorite, Chevy Chase. I took this picture a day or two after getting the card to send a thank you on Twitter to the person I traded for it from.
The picture is all that I have now. (plays Memories by Maroon 5 in the back of his mind before jumping to Take A Picture by Filter)
I have not and will not give up the search for this card yet, but at some point, I realize I will have to let it go. I cannot let it continue to consume my mind wondering where it went too much longer.
In comments today, let me know if there was ever a card you lost and if you ever found it.
Hope everyone has a Super Saturday.

Dang. That stinks. Have you looked in unconventional spots? On a bookshelf? In the back pocket of a pair of pants? Sometimes that's where an item like that turns up.ReplyDelete
I have. Still can't find itDelete
I'm sure this plate will pop up sooner or later... hopefully sooner. As for missing cards... according to my records I purchased two PSA 10 Kobe Bryant Topps rookie cards, but there's only one sitting in my Kobe PC. Been looking for it since the start of the pandemic when I started selling duplicates of graded cards, but still haven't stumbled across it. Oh well. It'll turn up at some point.ReplyDelete
That's a painful one to lose.Delete
And so far, still no luck in finding it.
Hope it turns up soon!ReplyDelete
Thanks! I hope so as well!Delete
I have a Roberto Alomar Smokey the Bear postcard somewhere. Somewhere! Couldn't find it after a decade and a half of sitting somewhere with my dormant collection.ReplyDelete
Ugh! Hopefully you will be able to find that!Delete
