What was the good investment you made, held too long and is now virtually worthless?

I picked up 800 Tommy Gregg rookies for .10 each. He went on an early season tear and I could have easily gotten $1 each out of them. Now they are virtually worthless. To make matters worse, he snubbed me for an autograph as a minor league coach.

One of the favorite cards I own is a Ryan Leaf 1/1 Flair rookie. I got if for $20. The guy had turned down $1200 for it at one point.

HOF Auto Rookies

Don't think I have too many of those where it's turned out badly. Usually I'm selling at the right moment, sold a Mike Trout 09 Chrome signed rookie for a ton, and paid next to nothing for it last year.

My Mauer collection consists of about 400+ autographed rookie cards, yes mainly from 2001-2002. He has given me a scare more than once with him being on the HOF path, then off, now it seems like he's back on again thank God.

What is the story behind the Darryl Palmer card?

It was a promo card made for the Movie The Slugger's Wife. It pictures Michael O'Keefe ( Danny Noonan in Caddyshack)

Bought half a case of unopened 1990 Upper Deck. The 1989's were so hot it couldn't miss! I'm sure they will go up soon.
