Paul Goldschmidt has 232 doubles and I have 283.

Like many of you reading this I placed an order at 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.


  1. I have so many Cutch doubles because of doing that same thing. It's ok, it happens to the best of us. If you ever want to do a blind trade, I will happily take some Goldys from you.

  2. I have a ton of doubles of him too lol. That is one card of him I don’t yet have though
