Jeff sent me this one earlier this year, he has always been generous toward me with his White Sox dupes.

1973 Topps
#1136
Collection - Vintage
Card - 1973 Topps
Player - Bill Singer
Team - California Angels

I got a bunch of cards for my 1973 Topps and my 1981 Topps sets from Josh back when I was only collecting those 2 sets, pre-vintage collection.

2013 Bowman

Player - Denard Robinson
Team - Michigan Wolverines, Jacksonville Jaguars
Acquired - Purchased
Price - $.35
From - COMC

Another card from this year, which I guess shouldn't surprise me because my list of cards I add all the new cards when I receive them and I'm still trying to log all the older cards so there isn't as many. This is one of the better Robinson cards and yet it's not, just because he's in his Maize and Blue, except they photoshop the wings off the helmet.

2015 Topps Archives
#970
Collection - White Sox
Card - 2015 Topps Archives
Player - Jeff Samardzija
Team - Chicago White Sox
Acquired - Trade
From - 2x3 Heroes
When - October, 2015

I can't believe I have to follow a Michigan man, with a Notre Dame guy. I'd say it was a joke from Random,org but all it gets are the numbers. Another card from Jeff, I told you he likes to hook me up.

Bonus My Baseball Card Obsession random card. I random that blog until a card that isn't part of my collection comes up, check it out.

1953 Bowman

Wow! It took a few randoms before I got to a non-collection card but man I wish this was part of it. What an awesome card. A 1953 Bowman card of Pee Wee Reese.

A busy Saturday

It was an unusual Saturday as in I actually had to work, and go in an hour earlier than normal at that. I made the mistake of napping to long after work yesterday and couldn't go to sleep last night so not going to bed till 1:00 am and having to get up at 4:30 am did not help me any. After I got off work, I picked up my daughter at a friends house and then came home, showered up and headed out to my cousin's kids graduation party. I finally got home for the day and found an envelope sitting on the kitchen counter. I opened it up to 1 card but it's a nice card.

2014 Topps Allen & Ginter's Framed Mini Autograph
My first auto of Matt Davidson although I believe I have another one coming in the mail. He is currently in the minors which is probably why I picked it up for $2.75/shipped.

2 days of Mail

I did get some more cards in the mail yesterday but I had some car trouble after work and then had a softball game so by the time I got home and showered, I just didn't feel like getting online to post so we'll do 2 days of cards today.

1981 Donruss ($.38/shipped)
1981 Donruss ($.54/shipped) 
1981 Fleer ($.54/shipped)
3 cards, 2 Player Collections, a Fisk and 2 Schmidt's. All 1981. I believe I've bid on the Donruss Schmidt before and could never win it so it was nice to finally get it.

1981 Topps ($.12/shipped)
1981 Topps ($.24/shipped) 
1983 Fleer ($.16/shipped) 
1984 Topps ($.26/shipped)
4 more vintage as you can tell. I only put a quarter plus a few pennies (like I usually do) on the 1980's vintage which if you saw the last post, you know I still manage a bunch.

1987 Topps All-Star Set
I did get one for the White Sox collection as well, got it for $.54/shipped. I remember trying to get all these cards as a kid. I believe they were wrapper mail ins or something. I think I got most of mine from card shows and trading with other kids.

The next 3 cards I received today from 2 sellers.

1985 Fleer
1985 Fleer
Both of these 1985 Fleer came from the same seller. The Ozzie Smith goes to the Vintage Collection, I picked it up for $.26/shipped and the Ripken's card goes to the Ripken Collection, I grabbed it for only $.28/shipped.

2014 Topps Stadium Club Autograph
I picked up this auto of the former White Sox pitcher, I say former because he was traded in early June for James Shields, who hasn't exactly panned out, yet. I grabbed this auto for $2.99/shipped.

Playing catch-up

I didn't disappear this time, I swear. I didn't get any cards on Thursday and if you have followed this blog for awhile then you know that the family goes camping on Father's Day weekend so Friday after work we took off and didn't come back until Monday. So I have lots of days and lots of cards to make up so this will be a picture heavy post. I'll keep the pics smaller as to not suck up all your time waiting on them to load.

I don't know what days everything came in so I'm just going to post everything I got from Friday thru Monday. If you remember last week, I had said something about all the vintage cards I had bidded on, well they started showing up this week.












Like I said, I got lots for the vintage collection. I did manage a few player collections pick-ups as well.


I got a couple of more Jordan's and I actually ran across another Chris Getz.

That was everything I received while I was gone, but I hadn't posted a couple of days since then, so here's what I got on Tuesday and today.









Again, lots of Vintage and yep, a few more for the player collections.


Both 2005 UD Classics from the same seller, both Hall of Famers, but wait, there's 1 more.

I can't believe I got an Aparicio game used bat for only $3.82/shipped. That's a great way to finish a catch-up post from the weekend.

Everything should all be back to normal tomorrow now that these 63 cards are out of the way, now I just have to get caught up on the other blogs.
