Just a quick post of some ebay purchases that were actually a few weeks ago but I never got around to posting.
Tom Seaver – 1981 Topps
John Danks – 2011 Topps Diamond Anniversary
Tom Seaver – 1983 Topps (Super Veteran)
Total amount paid for all 3 cards was $2.00/shipped.
Every time I see a 1981 Topps, I seriously consider becoming a set collector and trying for that set. It was the first year that I collected as a kid and I had a crap load of them. I had some Fleer and Donruss as well but for reasons I don’t remember, I had about 3 times as many Topps as the other 2. Hell, I probably had a couple of sets back then and didn’t even realize it. I was only 8, give me a break, geez! But the major thing that stops me from starting to collect that set is the same reason I don’t push for many trades. I just don’t have many cards left to trade and I can’t afford to purchase more so I don’t see that changing any time soon. I haven’t even bought anything on ebay for myself in a few weeks. Although I will have another ebay post if I ever get around to scanning the rest that came in.
