Thanks PSA For Your Bad Labeling

1998 Finest Refractor #135
Cal Ripken, Jr. PSA 10
Mechanical Error
I recently purchased what I thought to be a 1997 Finest Refractor #135 Cal Ripken, Jr. PSA 10 only to realize that it was actually a 1998 Finest Refractor #135 PSA 10 mechanical error.  PSA allows you send back the mechanical errors to have the flips reprinted with the correct information and they pay the shipping.  I'll just send it in with some others I already have.  The great thing though is my auction ended for $20.50 on a $40.00 Beckett book value card.  I thought that was pretty good.  For some reason, I thought it would be interesting to see if another properly labeled 1998 Finest Refractor #135 PSA 10 had sold recently.  As it turned out, one had closed recently for a Best Offer of $79.99!  So I guess I got a pretty good deal.  So I kept looking.  I noticed a 1994 Finest Refractor #235 PSA 10 recently sold for a Best Offer of $350.00.  I looked back in my database and realized I purchased mine for $70.26 in an auction!  Another great deal!  I guess I may be selling with Buy-It-Nows and Best Offers from now on!
