Cheaper Than Stamps #54

zzz-cheaperthanstamps

From one Hall of Famer (this summer) to another Hall of Fame, here’s my Cal Ripken jr pick-ups

1991 Upper Deck, 1990 Fleer Players of the Decade and 1997 Upper Deck (defensive gems)

None of these pick-ups really surprise me, nothing too fancy.  I grabbed the 91 Upper Deck for $.21, the Fleer for $.18 and the 97 UD for $.28.  All were needed for the Cal Ripken jr collection so I certainly won’t complain.

 

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

  1. I don't care how cheap they are, I just love shots of Cal fielding like that '97 UD, which featured some fantastic subsets like the Defensive Gems.
