Yep, I’m back at buying again, or maybe not. I got a little excited on buying cards again after the couple of weeks off work that I searched for my vintage collection first. I bid on everything that fit it my collection with a $.50 max bid up to 1981 then I put a max bid of $.25 on those and up. When all was said and done, I ended up bidding on over 300 cards. Most of those 1986 and 1987 so I figured, I only put a quarter on them, I should get outbid on a bunch. That was not the case. Now that the week is done, I ended up winning 224 of them, yikes. So even though there wasn’t a very high bid, it added up quick. So needless to say, I’m probably going to have to wait a week or 2 again before I start buying. I did get some cards in the mail this week though, all for the vintage collection.
1979 Topps Dale Murphy
- This card gave me 57 cards in the 1979 Topps set.
I was surprised to win this one, I normally wouldn’t have bid because the seller didn’t list a card number and I don’t usually bid on those since it’s a pain to look and see if I have them, plus it was a generic stock photo of a bunch of cards but it was Dale Murphy, and I knew I didn’t have it so I went ahead and bid on this one card of his.
1979 Topps Jose Cruz
- This card gave me 58 for the set.
I bought this from a different seller then the Dale Murphy card. It was the same seller as the following 3 cards.
1980 Topps – Bruce Sutter, Joe Torre and Tom Lasorda
- These 3 cards give me 88 cards for the 1980 Topps set.
