Default Duplicates

As for vintage cards, every card is like a snowflake. No two of them are exactly the same condition, centering, color, registry, gloss, etc. If you like a card, why not own more than one of them? Wouldn't you rather have two 1841 PB Greenberg's than one Greenberg and a Camili, Donald, and Arnovich? (No offense to the Camili, Donald, or Arnovich collectors out there)

Both scenario's have similar value, but I would bet that you as a Greenberg collector would get more happiness out of the two Greenbergs.

As one reply mentioned, some people collect players, some collect sets, some collect teams, all of which can be put on a registry.

I think the PSA registry is missing one more important category: the single-card ladder. Why can't someone collect a single card in each grade from 1-10? That would be pretty cool to have as well.

i'm going to wait for the right deal to come along, but i certainly do loosen up if nothing more than making the old card available

Dupes? Trade bait. Or I usually sell to put into other cards I want more.
Don't know how to justify straight dupes unless you are going for a second, third etc.. set. Or if you want to just hoard, that is ok too. You don't have to justify it to us, we are similar.

"How do I justify keeping dupes?"

Simple. I don't tell my wife I have a dupe!

And let's keep it that way!

Cheers,
Patrick

Or people that are just a little OCD with their research.

Pat- That reminds me of the time I did some serious measuring of some 1915 W-Unc cards to try to determine if the wider picture ones were a different series. In the end I thought they were just cropped differently but they were still the same approximate size. Sometimes we just need a lot of cards .

Default A duplicitous response

Here is how my extra cards remain within the fold...I dupe the dupes into believing they are part of my collection, thus in the process duping the dope that is me into believing they belong.
