Like many of you reading this I placed an order at comc.com and took advantage of their Black Friday free shipping. Free shipping is great, but I had to wait 22 days to get my shipment. It arrived this past Monday.
After a 22 day delay, I'd almost forgotten what I purchased. It was fun to go through my order. I picked up 25 Paul Goldschmidt cards, 24 of which were different. I made a mistake and picked up two of the same card.
I bought two of these 2016 Bowman Platinum cards. When I was going through the order and saw the two cards I assumed one was a parallel, but looking at them I couldn't tell any difference. I next went to the invoice and that's when I confirmed that I had indeed bought two of the same card.
That's okay though. It's not like I don't have any other Paul Goldschmidt doubles. In fact, this extra 2016 Bowman Platinum card is my 283rd Goldschmidt double and I've given away a lot of Goldschmidt cards to my boys, their friends, and their baseball teams.
