A rare find, sorta

I got one card in the mail and it was for a collection that I don't cards for very often. I don't even see them listed very often. That may be because I only search for cards under a quarter so maybe his cards are just so expensive that nobody starts them off that low. I'm pretty sure that's not it but it's what I choose to believe. I can get a ton of Cal Ripken Jr cards because he didn't really do anything in baseball but this guy, I can't find cheap because everybody loves him. Want to know who it is? Let's take a look.

2015 Topps Mini
So I might of lied a little bit. What I said was true, I get all kinds of Ripken cards and I rarely add AJ cards but I'm pretty sure what I told you on why isn't true. Well, it is now because it's on the internet and everything on the internet is the truth. In case you didn't read the caption on the picture, that isn't a 2015 Topps but a 2015 Topps Mini. According to baseballcardpedia.com, less than 1,000 of these sets were produced so there's that as well. I managed to pick it up for $.16/shipped.

Chris Sale when he was with the right Sox

2 days in a row with cards, Woo Hoo! I didn't think I had gotten any cards because the mail box was empty this afternoon but later this evening, there was a knock at the door. I sent my son to the door because I was eating and there was a small envelope on the step. Apparently I got cards, but the seller sent them UPS. If it's not expensive enough to ship me card via USPS, this guy sent them UPS. Wait until you see exactly how much I paid for the shipping.

Both of these cards go to the Chris Sale Collection as well as the White Sox Collection.

2014 Panini Prizm

2015 Topps Gypsy Queen
I got both of these from the same seller for the whopping price of $.30/shipped. That's right, 15 cents each, cheaper than one stamp but did he use that one stamp, nope, he shipped them UPS which I'm sure is fairly cheap in a small bubble mailer and all but is it cheaper than $.30? Um, no. I really don't understand how these people continue to do it but oh well, it makes it easier on me.

2 Collections in one

I finally got some mail, I've got plenty of cards coming, they just haven't been coming. I got one envelope with a few cards in it. All going to the Vintage Collection and the White Sox Collection.

1970 Topps
I picked up this for $.23/shipped.

1970 Topps
I picked up this one for $.16/shipped.

1970 Topps
I got this one for $.23/shipped.

All in all, not bad when you can get 3 cards from 1970 for under a quarter a piece. They also go to two different collection so technically, it's 6 cards towards the collection.

Random PC Cards

It's been another very slow week in the mail department. I only got one card all week. I did get a lot done again on getting everything listed on Google docs. I'm up to September of 2012 (7,002 cards) off of this blog as far as listing cards. It's a slow (very slow) process but I can't wait until it's done and I look at all that organization.

Jim Abbott collection

I got my first card in the mail for the week. On a Wednesday, which is odd because we rarely get mail on Wednesday. It's usually just the local fliers, it's rare to have any envelopes, even bills on a Wednesday.

1989 Bowman
It's always good to add another card to any collection but when I get to add one for $.06/shipped, it's even better. This is my 84th card of Jim Abbott Collection.
