I've randomed and todays selection are going to the Steve Carlton Collection and Tom Seaver Collection.

2001 Upper Deck Legends of NY ($.30)
1990 Pacific Baseball Legends ($.30)
2012 Panini Golden Age ($.30)
6 Steve Carlton and 3 Tom Seaver's. Guess you can tell the difference on the cost of their cards when I can get 6 cards of Carlton for 4 cents less than 3 Seavers.



2012 Panini Cooperstown High Praise ($.27)
2004 Upper Deck Famous Quotes ($.44)
I made up for only getting 3 Seaver's on Just Commons by grabbing a couple on Ebay as well.

This concludes the February additions but I still haven't scanned anything for March yet which means I'm going to start the month off way behind already.

I missed posting yesterday because I headed up to Ann Arbor for the Spring Game and being a night game this year, I didn't get home until after midnight. I also met up with Dennis and hung out during the game and swapped some cards.

I'm hoping to get all my March stuff scanned today, especially since it was snowing this morning and I have no more plans of going out. I only have one more post of February pick-ups which is all the more reason to get my other stuff scanned for March.

I've randomed and todays selection are going to the Chris Sale Collection
Dennis usually send me some White Sox cards with his packages and he even managed to hit a player collection with this one.


2015 Donruss ($.20)
2015 Topps ($.14)
2015 Topps Update ($.20)
2012 Panini Prizm ($.25)
2014 Topps Allen & Ginter's ($.25)
Added these 5 cards for just over a buck to the Chris Sale Collection.


2013 Topps Allen & Ginter's ($.30)
2013 Bowman Platinum Cutting Edge Stars ($.30)
2014 Panini Classics ($.40)
3 more cards for an even buck.


2013 Topps All-Star Stitches ($3)
 I also grabbed a relic of Sale from a LCS I've found.

I usually manage to grab some Sale cards as he is one of the more favorite Sox players but I still think he is underrated as far as the fans go. The MLB has taken note as well as the card manufactures of the type of player he is but I still don't think the fans give him enough love. Which is fine by me, because it keeps his card priced lower.

More great cards from Jimmy to go with what he sent yesterday.


1996 Leaf Signature Series Silver Autograph ($4.25)
One more White Sox auto to go with the other 2 from yesterday. I paid a little more than normal but I didn't have a Karkovice auto yet so I went for it anyways.


1990 Bowman
I didn't actually order this but it was in my box, and I needed it so there you go.


1978 Topps ($.50)
1979 Topps ($.50)
I also managed to grab these for my late 70's White Sox team sets.

Even though it's the last day of the month and I have 2 more posts left for Feburary, I haven't scanned March's cards yet so I'll do that this weekend and finish off my posts before then, hopefully.

Jimmy claimed some cards on one of my pack posts and I sent a PWE of the cards that he asked for and he was generous enough to send me some cards off my needs lists. He knocked the 2009 team set down to 3 cards and the 2014 Topps team set down to 1 card.

Ray also claimed some cards from my pack posts and sent me some cards in return. I don't ask for cards in return but some people are just generous anyways and I appreciate it.


2014 Topps Stadium Club Autographs ($1.52)
2007 Bowman Sterling Autographs ($1.25)
These 2 autos were too cheap to pass up. Adam Eaton is our leadoff hitter and it's a Stadium Club so it's a great shot and John Danks is currently the longest tenured White Sox player on the roster.



2013 Topps Update ($.21) 
2014 Panini Prizm Refractor ($.25)

Picked up these 2 on Ebay as well. I picked up the Davidson not really knowing who he was but I have watched a number of spring training games and he's doing very well. He'll probably start in the minors because there are 2 spots left and 5 players fighting for it, including a couple of quite a bit of MLB experience already.


2016 Topps

I managed to get 4 White Sox cards in my packs. Although I bought the packs knowing that I already had a series 1 team set coming so basically, I bought the packs just to open packs. We've all been there.
