Cheaper Than Stamps #52

zzz-cheaperthanstamps

Yesterday, I mentioned upping my minimum bid to the price of a stamp.  Today, I changed all my previous bids to $.48 (stamps are $.49) so I could keep the title CHEAPER than stamps.  Tonight, I won 8 cards, which is what I was afraid of.  I know it doesn’t sounds like much, but that’s just under $4.  At $4/day, it ends up being $112/month, which is way over budget.  I might have to rethink this.

Yesterday we got to see the Chris Getz collection, today, we are sticking with current active players, although it may be his last year.

Paul Konerko – 2013 Bowman Platinum Blue

According to the listing, this is a short print so I was really shocked when I grabbed it for $.29.  The seller must have been annoyed to let a short print go at that price, but oh well, not my problem.  It was a very nice addition to the Paul Konerko collection.

 

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