Default Great Net54er

In January I made a post that I had finally made the decision to tackle T206s. I know everyone collects this set differently. I am tackling the set my own way. I'm shooting for beat up commons with common backs, 361 of them.

A fellow board member reached out to me. He stated that he had a lot that fit my per card price point. There were 33 cards in the lot with duplicates. While I'm not looking for upgrades or dups, however this seemed like a great opportunity to pick up some future trade bait. Hell, it was my birthday when he reached out so a few days later I pulled the trigger.

Here's where the story gets interesting. The seller emails me to give him a call. I ring him, curiously. I'm told that a grave error was made on his part. He went on to explain. The Mullin Piedmont 350 Factory 25 is really rare and part of the Elite 11/12. He said that he was honoring our deal and to not put him in my binder. I was blown away. We chatted a while. Seems like a really great guy and I feel as if I've made a great new collecting friend.

I can't give John Wondowski, aka wondo, enough props for him being a valuable asset to our wonderful community. I actually made a similar error the following day. I ended up selling a 77/78 Topps basketball set I had laying around. Gave him a price and when I looked at the set, I knew I had quoted incorrectly. Paid my fortune/error forward, and honored my word. Huge respect for John. Thanks buddy, mentor and friend. BTW, I sure hope you make it to Iowa someday so I can take you to an ICubs game. You're all welcome anytime to join me at a game. Only difference, John get free beers.

Cheers Craig

Always great to hear stories like this about the forum. Really feel like Net54 is one of the last bastions of the good side of the hobby. Well at least on the internet that is.

Nothing but good experiences with Wondo. Even if every time I call him that I think of him like a magician "Wondo the Magnificent"
