New Additions - Carlton, Fisk and McGary

*For those new to the blog, all purchases were made on Ebay (unless otherwise noted) and all were under $.50/shipped.

I'm listing Ebay stuff but also I got an awesome package from Dennis over at "Too Many Verlanders" and my favorite "Too Many Manninghams", although you'll see a lot of that great stuff on the TMM blog whenever I get that post together. I also received 2 huge packages of mainly White Sox cards from Jeff over at "2 x 3 Heroes" as well and both guys also sent a bunch of vintage. I'm also randomizing the posts so let's see what's next.

Sorry, I disappeared for a few days. It's been a busy couple of days.



Jeff actually sent me 2 Carlton Fisk cards I needed, you'll see the other one down below in the Ebay section. I had picked one up on Ebay before I got his package so I used the one he gave me for the White Sox Collection. It was a 2015 Topps insert. I like this vintage look with the shininess of this card. It's 2 favorite things in one card. Only thing that would have made it better would have been to a White Sox card.











It was a good month for the 2 Carlton's (Steve and Fisk), adding 5 to the Steve Carlton collection (love the Kmart card) and 3 for the Carlton Fisk collection. I even managed to pick up my 1st Mitch McGary card.

In case you're interested, the reason I pretty much always post pics of single cards is because of these 2 blogs that I use to store my cards. My Personal Collections and My Baseball Card Obsession.

New Additions - Vintage Collection, 1985

Jeff added these 11 cards to the vintage collection. The 1985 Topps in my collection are a little more plentiful as I'm now at 129 cards where as the Fleer and Donruss I'm only at 23 and 24 cards.












I even managed to pick up 10 1985 Topps cards on Ebay. I don't remember how they came about but I would hazard a guess that it was a lot or possibly 2.

I only have 4 more of these posts to go, 2 players, 2 vintage, before I can do my grand finale on Too Many Manninghams with all the Michigan cards that Dennis sent over.

Jeff added 14 more to the Vintage collection, representing all 3 major brands in 1983.






I even managed to pick up 2 more for the Fleer and Topps set from Ebay.
