Cheaper Than Stamps #55

zzz-cheaperthanstamps

From 2 Hall of Famers (Barry Larkin & Cal Ripken jr) to a future Hall of Famer (I know it’s early, but it’s possible) in Chris Sale.

2014 Topps and 2011 Topps

What you’ll see in an upcoming post is that I purchased the series 1 team set and since I fill the player collections first, the Sale goes here.  I got the series 1 team set for $2.28/shipped which equals just under $.23.  I was surprised I didn’t have the 2011 but I didn’t start the Chris Sale collection until after I already completed the team sets so I didn’t keep a 2nd one.  I actually won a lot of 2 of those cards for $.29.

As I was filling the bottom half, I realized that these were the first 2 cards I picked up for the Chris Sale collection in the Cheaper Than Stamps posts.

 

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