Default What card did you never think you'd own, but now you do?

Growing up, I always remember the allure of the 1952 Topps Mantle, but was more intrigued by the 1951 Bowman one, especially enjoying that it was produced a year earlier, during Mantle's actual rookie season. But I thought the price tag was higher than I would ever be able to afford.

Many many years have passed since I first dreamed of owning one, and I now have acquired a '51 Mantle. It's not perfect, but it makes me quite happy......

Would love to hear about other cards you never thought you'd get to acquire, but have been able to do so!
