COMC purchase #2–Luis Aparicio

I had some money burning a hole through my COMC account and decided to spend it. The negative – I forgot to leave $3 to to pay for the shipping, so I had to add another $10 so I could ship them. The positive – that gave me another $7 to spend. I basically went through each player collection and picked up some cheap cards that I didn’t have.  The following is previous entry’s on this purchase.

Dave Dravecky Collection – Luis Aparicio Collection – Paul Konerko Collection – Tom Seaver Collection – 1981 Topps – 1973 Topps – Michigan Collection

You can see above what is to come, if there is no link, it is to come soon.


  • 2008 Topps Heritage Baseball Flashbacks ($.44)
  • 2010 Topps Heritage Baseball Flashbacks ($.45)
  • 2005 Topps Heritage Flashbacks ($.49)

Start us off with 3 Topps heritage flashbacks cards.  Obviously, your not going to see any great vintage cards of Luis Aparicio here since I’m only picking up cheap cards.


  • 2008 Topps Heritage Then and Now ($.43)
  • 1972 Topps (In Action) ($.49)

I lied, there is one great vintage card.  And under 50 cents, awesome.


  • 2011 Topps Kimball Champions ($.50)
  • 2005 Diamond Kings HOF Heroes ($.48)

I paid $3 to ship all 46 cards which comes out to just under $.07 a card.
