This is a series where I show off cards I need for my PC’s that I pick up on Ebay for cheaper than a stamp. My maximum I spend on these cards is actually $.30 so I get them quite a bit cheaper than a stamp.
I’ve shown you the current player collection cards, now let’s see what I’ve picked up for the vintage collection. Starting with 1987 and working our way down.
1987 Topps - Tim Raines #30, Bill Madlock #734, Dave Concepcion #11
I know, 1987 Topps isn’t exciting, but it’s still part of my vintage collection. I got the Raines for $.15, the Madlock for $.06 and the Concepcion for $.11
1987 Topps – Don Mattingly #500, Dale Mohorcic #497, Todd Worrell #605
I got the Mattingly for $.10, the Mohorcic for $.16 and the Worrell for $.11. I paid more for the other 2 than I did Mattingly, that’s kind of pathetic.
1987 Topps – Steve Ontiveros #161 and Mark McGwire #366
I picked up the Ontiveros for $.17 and the McGwire for $.10. I just learned that Steve Ontiveros played for the Michigan Wolverines (thanks Dennis!) and I remember when that McGwire was a big ticket item. Shocking that any 1987 Topps was a big ticket item but it was very popular at one time because most people couldn’t afford the 1985 Topps USA card.
1987 Topps – Andy McGaffigan #742
I picked this one up for $.10. Not sure why anyone even listed this, especially with free shipping. I’m guessing the only reason I paid a dime was because that was the minimum bid.
I scan the cards as they come in and post them when I get around to it. As you can tell since all these have a single price paid per card instead of a lot price.
1987 Fleer – ML Prospects #650, #653, #647, #649, #645
I picked up this lot for $.30 with $.50 shipping. Which equals out to $.16 a card. All prospects, including a Ron Karkovice rookie which isn’t exciting for you, but for us White Sox fans it is.
