Welcome

This blog is about sports and sports cards. Which both I love to talk about. My teams are as follows - MLB - Chicago White Sox, NCAA - Michigan Wolverines & NFL - Indianapolis Colts. Although I post my Michigan stuff to another site now - check it out at http://toomanymarios.blogspot.com/

New Additions - AJ Pierzynski collection

*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 a package from Bru over at Remember the Astrodome so you'll see assorted stuff from him as well. He was originally going to hook me up with some 1984 Topps (which he did) but he ended up sending a bunch more vintage as well as some White Sox needs. I'll be randomizing the posts like I did the last bunch.




Always great to pick up a refractor cheap.

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 (now with over 2300 cards) and My Baseball Card Obsession (now with over 2500 cards and almost 900 card labels).

3 nice Zimmerman's, 2 of those are numbered to /150, certainly can't complain about that.

I told you Bru sent me 1984 Topps, well this one fit into the Mike Schmidt collection before the vintage collection.






I also managed to pick up 3 Mike Schmidt's from Ebay. I think I already had the 1981 Topps but it was already in with my set when I decided to start collecting Schmidt so I left it there.

New Additions - Paul Konerko collection

*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.


























24 Konerko's from Jeff. 24! Base, inserts and a mini. Lots of White Sox, a Dodger and even a High School card. Like I said, lots and lots of Paulie.  All of these (and the following one) put my Paul Konerko collection at 367 cards.

A big thanks to Jeff from 2 x 3 Heroes, be sure to check his blog out if you haven't already. I'm partial to his blog, mainly because he shows lots of White Sox cards for me to be jealous of and I also like his Throwback Thursday posts.



I even managed to grab 1 Paulie from Ebay which I don't get to do very often. The ones that do get listed, I have or they are oddball stuff and they get bidded over my max bid.

I had said before that I only had 2 posts left and here we are, 2 posts from when I said that but I lied. I have 1 more post coming and it's a biggy, but you'll have to see it over at Too Many Manninghams when I get posted. I'll try to get that done in the next 2 days so I can take the weekend to take pics and get ready to post the stuff I've received since I started these posts, next week.

Today's post is the last of the Vintage collection. All from the 1960's and all from Ebay. I'm always happy to pick up cards from the 1950's (it happens, occasionally) and 1960's cheap.
