Default The Most You've Spent on One Card?

Just picked up this beauty for my PC. Ended up having to pay the most I've ever paid for a single card but I think it was worth it.

What's the most money you've spent on a single card? Show scans if you've got 'em!

This one was $715. The most I've ever spent yet still cheaper than what I've seen other cards like it go for.

Paid $1500. I don't regret it one bit. It is the one card in my collection that I will never sell.

Nice stuff!

Sometimes I regret a purchase though. For example, the 1/1 dual auto Robin Yount/Ryan Braun card I bought a couple months back. With the recent news I may be looking to off-load that one.

The most expensive for me was $2000 on a Mel Ott Legendary Cuts Auto. They have came down in price since then but I sold it for $2500 so its all good.

$125 for the Delgado Superfractor in my avatar. The only other card I've paid more than $100 for was $120 for a 2009 Bowman Chrome X-Fractor auto of Freddie Freeman graded BGS 9.5/10, which I bought recently. And I overpaid for it looks like, haha.
