Non player collection pick-ups

I have lots of cards to post since I haven’t been posting them regularly, so let’s get started. I’m going to start today off with a bunch of non player collections.

I picked these up at a pawn type place that specializes in movies and games but they usually have some cards lying around. Their singles are ridiculously high but once in awhile I’ll come across a box of cards, usually vintage at a decent price. These were in one of those plastic cases that holds about 100 cards. I skimmed through it just to see what years were represented and went ahead and grabbed it. It was only $5 so I took a shot at filling some vintage holes.

These 3 1982 Donruss cards didn’t add much to the set but it now sits at 48 cards.

vintage1984topps

This stack of 1984 Topps brought that set to 126 cards which is just a touch under 16% completed.

vintage1974topps

The top 7 cards were in that lot, the Chicago White Sox team card I picked up on ebay on the cheap. These 8 1974’s bring that set to 72 cards which is a touch under 11% completed.

vintage1973topps

The last of the lot (and the oldest) were some 1973 Topps. There was about 10 or 12 from this year so I was hoping I could up that set a little but it ended up that I only needed the above 2. It’s better than nothing and my cousin (Sluggo) is trying to collect this set now so I have something to send to him. These 2 cards put that set at 423 cards, or 64% completed.

I think those cards were worth the $5. I also picked up a bunch of the higher years for my vintage collection on Ebay. Since there was so many cards listed (mainly one seller), I only put a quarter on each card and hoped I didn’t win too many. That didn’t work, I won a lot more than I was expecting, check them out.

vintage1987fleer

A huge stack of 1987 Fleer, which was good because I didn’t have many, but I didn’t need to drop that much cash. Oops. This stack brings that set to 99 cards which puts me dead on at 15% completed.

vintage1987donruss

Another huge stack of 1987, only Donruss this time. This stack puts me at 120 cards and is a little over 18% completed.

vintage1986topps

Another huge stack, this is getting ridiculous. Although it did bring me up to 188 cards in that set. It puts me a little over 23% which is almost a quarter of the way completed.

vintage1984donruss

Another stack, ugh. I’m in so much trouble. This stack of 1984 Donruss bumped me up to 90 cards and 14% completed.

All those cards from Ebay also bumped me to the doghouse. I kept saying “I wasn’t supposed to win that many”. So needless to say, I haven’t bid on too many vintage since. At least that’s what I told her.

I did also pick up 2 cards for the White Sox Collection.

2011 Topps Heritage – Chicago White Sox team card.

I wish more sets would incorporate the team cards. I enjoy them.

2015 Topps Gold – Alexei Ramirez

My first 2015. I have a bunch of 2015 base and inserts coming from my fellow White Sox fan, Jeff from 2 by 3 Heroes because he’s cool like that but I have been bidding on my non White Sox player collections and the gold parallels, I picked this one up surprisingly on the cheap.

That’s all for my non player collections, I’ll start posting the others when I get the chance, hopefully this weekend and into next week.

  1. Do you have an '84 want list or haves list? I can add to your stack.
    I can probably get you a nice stack of '74 as well, and I'm sure you can probably knock out some of my Astros junk wax needs.
