Need some opinions, card show haul....
So I had a rough week at work logging almost 70 hours and since i'm salaried I don't get any kind of compensation for the extra hours, I ended up sleeping almost all day yesterday. I woke up really early this morning and was looking on some local websites and saw a little ad for a card show real close to home so I figured I would go out grab a cup of coffee and head over right when it opens to see if there was anything good.

After walking through about half of the show and bumping into a couple of acquaintances I came across a table that had a ton of 2012 Topps Chrome on it, kinda scattered without any method of the maddness so I started picking up piles and looking through trying to find refractors that I needed for a couple of rainbows I am attempting. The guy that owned the table came over as I was sorting through a pile of xfractors and asked me if I was putting the set together, I told him no, just the base set and a couple rainbows. He said he would cut me a hell of a deal on all of the xfractors if I would buy them all. I said I would think about it. Just then I noticed a card that looked a little different than the rest of the xfractors, I turned it over and this is what I saw-

I couldn't believe that was sitting in a pile of penny sleeved "commons"! So I put it on top of the pile and asked the guy how much. He picked them up, made a quick sort through them counting them up(41 total) and says "How does 14 bucks sound? And if you make it an even 22 I'll throw in these 11 blues and 3 blacks."

I gave him a minute to see if he would notice the Atomic Goldschmidt and then excepted his offer, paid up and excitedly went on my way!

Does this make me a little bit of an A-hole not telling the guy that he was overlooking something? I couldn't help but feel a little bad but at the same time I feel you should know what you are selling beforehand.

I kinda wish I hadnt just traded away the red Goldschmidt earlier this week because I would have a great start at a nice rainbow right now lol.

I also was able to pick up 3 more Archives autos, a couple GQ black minis and a couple red refractors. Here are all of this years reds that I have acquired through trade, ebay, and the show.

Nice haul and I wouldn't feel a bit bad about the deal. He's the dealer and should know the values. Wish I could be that lucky!

It does no good to get on the right track if you are headed in the wrong direction.

Card shows are the best for surprise deals like that. It's happened to me many times. Don't feel guilty. Feel really lucky.

I collect Hall of Fame baseball player cards and cards of current and retired superstars.

You dont have to feel bad about it,things like that happens all the time.A few months ago i bought 4 boxes of 2012 Heritage on Ebay and the guy sent me 8 boxes...i didnt know what to do but my girlfriend said i should keep it because i spent a lot of money in baseball cards and its time to see a little return on it.
