This should have been my first hint, that I would never pull a good card out of a pack myself. Unfortunately, it took a very long time and a great deal of wasted money to realize it. Now I just buy what I want outright. However, its certainly not as fun winning an auction in which 20 bidders all bid in the last minute.
A lot of us have come to that same realization. Nice story.
