If you follow me over at “Too Many Manninghams” then you know I made a couple of big purchases from ebay. Here is where you get to see the non-Michigan cards I won. First off, some free cards.
Picked up both of these for my player collections of each for free using what little of ebay bucks I had. I don’t remember the total amount I had but it was under $2.
All the following cards were purchased from the same seller.
Since I was already taking advantage of shipping from the seller, these were just throw in’s that he had listed in his ebay store. I paid $1.50 each for these which is higher than I would normally pay for X-fractor’s but the more cards I got from the seller, the more I could justify spending the money because of the cheap shipping.
Not sure exactly what this is but it’s stamped “Special Olympics, Nevada, 1 of 1”. It’s a copy of the 1995 Classic 5 sport card except the gold foil stamp in the middle. If this is truly a 1 of 1, then it’s my first. And I only got it for $1.25.
Another 2007 Topps Allen & Ginter bat card (I already have one of Konerko) but I won it for only $3.04 so I went ahead and got another one. You can never have too many relic cards. Also got this Grant Hansen auto from Donruss Elite Extra Edition Aspriations #’d /50 for $1.93. Don’t know anything about him but he’s a Sox and it’s an auto and it’s numbered to 50. Pretty good price in my book.
Last but not least is this Brandon McCarthy dual jersey and auto card #’d /225. I got this Triple Threads card for $3.33. I liked McCarthy when he played for us and if I remember correctly, I was pissed when they traded him but I haven’t heard too much since he left. I believe he missed a bunch of last season with injury.
Along with the cards above, I also got a couple of cards to send to Dennis to complete a trade. One, I know he’ll really enjoy. And also a Steve Breaston auto in a Michigan uniform that I posted over on “Too Many Manninghams” for myself. The beauty of all 9 cards that I received from that seller is that I only paid $3 to have them all shipped to me. Which equals to just over $.33/each to ship.
I have some more stuff coming that you’ll get to see whenever I get them in so look for that, hopefully in a day or 2.
