More great cards from Jimmy to go with what he sent yesterday.


1996 Leaf Signature Series Silver Autograph ($4.25)
One more White Sox auto to go with the other 2 from yesterday. I paid a little more than normal but I didn't have a Karkovice auto yet so I went for it anyways.


1990 Bowman
I didn't actually order this but it was in my box, and I needed it so there you go.


1978 Topps ($.50)
1979 Topps ($.50)
I also managed to grab these for my late 70's White Sox team sets.

Even though it's the last day of the month and I have 2 more posts left for Feburary, I haven't scanned March's cards yet so I'll do that this weekend and finish off my posts before then, hopefully.

Jimmy claimed some cards on one of my pack posts and I sent a PWE of the cards that he asked for and he was generous enough to send me some cards off my needs lists. He knocked the 2009 team set down to 3 cards and the 2014 Topps team set down to 1 card.

Ray also claimed some cards from my pack posts and sent me some cards in return. I don't ask for cards in return but some people are just generous anyways and I appreciate it.


2014 Topps Stadium Club Autographs ($1.52)
2007 Bowman Sterling Autographs ($1.25)
These 2 autos were too cheap to pass up. Adam Eaton is our leadoff hitter and it's a Stadium Club so it's a great shot and John Danks is currently the longest tenured White Sox player on the roster.



2013 Topps Update ($.21) 
2014 Panini Prizm Refractor ($.25)

Picked up these 2 on Ebay as well. I picked up the Davidson not really knowing who he was but I have watched a number of spring training games and he's doing very well. He'll probably start in the minors because there are 2 spots left and 5 players fighting for it, including a couple of quite a bit of MLB experience already.


2016 Topps 
2016 Topps
2016 Topps
2016 Topps
I managed to get 4 White Sox cards in my packs. Although I bought the packs knowing that I already had a series 1 team set coming so basically, I bought the packs just to open packs. We've all been there.

1989 Fleer ($.15)
1993 Score Select ($.15)
1987 Sportflics ($.15)
1992 Topps Stadium Club ($.12)
1990 Topps ($.15)
2011 Upper Deck Goodwin Champions ($.16)
Another ugly Goodwin Champions but they are all needed for the collection. I wish it listed a team (or a city since they have no license) just so I know what to log it in under on my sheets. I'm going with Boston because he's wearing a flannel shirt with red in it.


2013 Topps Archives 1983 All-Stars ($.54)
1993 Score ($.38)
2013 Topps Gypsy Queen Collisions at the Plate ($.54)
2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces ($.31)
2007 Upper Deck Masterpieces Glossy ($.41)
I got the 2 Masterpieces from the same seller but it wasn't a lot. I didn't think I'd win either but I managed to grab both of them. All 5 of these last have decent action shots, can't complain about that.
