Cheaper Than Stamps #41

zzz-cheaperthanstamps

Yesterday, we saw a couple of Cal Ripken jr’s and in our last player collection of this round, we only get 1 card, but it is a Hall of Famer and it was really cheap.

Mike Schmidt – 1982 Topps Kmart 20th anniversary #39

I’ve probably said it before but I loved these Kmart series because as a kid, I got to look at older cards and owned copies of them.  It wasn’t like today, where you can pull vintage players in almost every set.  I picked up this Hall of Famer for a penny, shipped.  That’s good enough to knock $.05 off my price per card for Schmidt.

 

Here’s the rundown on how much I’ve paid and to which collection so far in the Cheaper Than Stamps series.

Player Collections

Barry Larkin (7) $.82 – $.12/card
Bill Melton (4) $1.60 – $.40/card

  1. All those KMart cards remind me of when the store was a place you wanted to shop. Not so much anymore, though you can find some great old blasters in KMart.
