Every vintage card is slightly different and if it’s a card you love it’s great to have multiple “variations”. If you never look at them, then sell them...

It's super easy to justify. I like cards, some cards I like more than others, if I like a card a lot, I will keep multiple copies.

I get rid of dupes as fast as I can. Dont want any. Never understood the mentality of people who collect tons of the exact same card also.
Its so great to love all the New York teams in all sports, particularly the YANKEES.

I find myself trying to justify selling my dupes not keeping them.

Love both the 68 & 69 Bench Cards.

Just hold on to them for a bit longer, they have been in an extended bear market since about 1991, which suggests they are long overdue for a rebound. Especially with investors seeking a safe haven for their capital in light of today's rapid currency fluctuations, erratic oil prices and uncertainty in the international trade system. 1989 Topps Gregg Jefferies are probably going to be seen as a safe asset, especially among large institutional investors, so hold on to them.

The only exceptions I can think of, where you would need to justify it to yourself or someone else, are if space is at a premium, or if the duplicate is something you can get good money for and your financial situation is such that the money will be a big help.

Otherwise, if you like having duplicates, that's how you enjoy the hobby. Case closed.

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

And let's keep it that way!

I rarely do, but when I do it's simply because I enjoy owning both cards. Usually they're different grades so I have a high grade example as well as a lower grade version that I feel has excellent eye appeal for the grade. That's all the justification I need.

I rarely acquire dupes, but when I do it is a card that I believe to have a significant upside over time, and there is little point in selling it now.

Best wishes,
