3 card Friday

I got 3 cards today which is a lot lately. They all came from the same seller and they are all player collection cards.


2 Montreal Expos cards, that always means a good day. These are the 109th and 110th cards of Gary Carter. I always love the Expos cards and even the Mets cards of his aren't bad. The other couple of team are just weird. These were both $.25/shipped each.


I would have guessed that I had this one but apparently not. I have 2 others of his from this set but not this one. It's a great action shot as long as you can ignore the glove coming out of his ass. This was also $.25/shipped. It is my 143rd different Larkin.

Cheap 60's

I got my first of hopefully more envelopes today for this week. Although right now, I only have 3 more purchases that I'm waiting on. Let's get to today's though.


This is only my 27th card from the 1966 set. I'm always happy to get a card from the 60's on the cheap. I picked this one up for $.23/shipped.

A day later

I actually got this card on Friday but we had a birthday party that night and I never got my laptop out and then I spent most of this morning in the ER and then slept all day so I'm finally getting around to posting it. Now that I think about it, I didn't get the mail today so maybe tomorrow I'll have another card to show.


I picked up this base of Quintana who now pitches on the north side. I'm still 11 cards away from that team set so I'm not really close. I picked it up for $.23/shipped.

Finally!

It's been over a week since I've posted. It's all because I haven't won any cards. I think my cheap pick-ups might be drying up. I should have posted a random card post in that time but I didn't. I did get an envelope today though so let's at least check those out.


I could have sworn that I had this card but it wasn't listed on my sheets. I even remember bidding on it a bunch of times so I probably do and my lazy record keeping failed me. I picked this up for a quarter/shipped. This is my 339th card of Cal Jr.

3 envelopes, 2 sellers

I don't have a ton of stuff coming, I just haven't been winning much. I don't know if it's less listings or I'm just not coming away with much. Either way, not much coming. I think as I type this, I only have 1 more card coming but there are a few ending later tonight.

I used coming a lot in that last paragraph, oh well.

I got 3 envelopes, although 2 came from the same seller.


I picked up 1 more card for the vintage collection. This 1979 Topps came to me for a quarter/shipped. This is the 332nd card for that set.




These 5 cards are the ones that came in 2 envelopes. They all were a quarter/shipped and all 5 add to the Barry Larkin collection. These 5 cards put that collection at 141 cards. I've been picking up Larkin cards pretty steadily this year. My guess for that is his recent addition to the Hall of Fame has more cards of his being sold.

In case you don't follow me on Twitter, I've been posting a random card from my collection every day. I'm sure you all are excited to see White Sox cards but I do have a lot of vintage too! Check it out here.
