Welcome

Vintage collection 1967-1968

I won 4 cards at a penny each from this seller but he had $.50 shipping, which was why I only bid a penny.   After I won them, I noticed he had a max shipping cost of $2 which I was already at, for auctions won for up to a week.  I went and bid on some more with a little higher bids since there was no shipping attached.  Let’s see what I ended up with.

Those are the 4 that I won for $.01 each with $.50 shipping on each card.  All are 1967 Topps.

Larry Brown [Poor to Fair]

$.29                                                 $.25

Gary Sutherland

$.25

So I grabbed 9 cards from the 1960’s for a total of $3.37 which equals out to $.37/each.  Not too shabby

Cal Ripken jr Collection

I nabbed this card for $.50 shipped.  I remember getting some of these Pacific Paramount cards, I remember opening packs of them, I think the local gas station had them because they only sold cheaper stuff.

COMC has this card for sell for $2.  I believe is a parallel version, probably bronze.  I think the base set is silver colored.

Chris Sale collection

I was really surprised to win this card and that was before I went to COMC to get a picture of it and read that the cheapest they have it is $3.85.  The Ebay auction says it’s a short print and I assume that is correct.

Chris Sale – 2014 Topps yellow #148

What was the cost of the “rare” card?  I paid $.26/shipped.  Basically a quarter box find.  I certainly can’t complain about that.

Gary Carter lot

I guess I’ll post a shipment a day until I get caught up, then I’ll post as they come in.  I’ve caught up on most of my cards so I won’t be posting anything from when I stopped blogging but I do have a small stack that I haven’t done anything yet so I’ll start with those.  I’ve also decided to take images from COMC instead of the Ebay images as sometimes they are pretty crappy.

I picked up this 6 card lot of Gary Carter for $1.26 shipped which equals out to $.21 each.  All but the 1978 Topps go to the Gary Carter Collection and the 1978 will go to the Vintage Collection.
