3 generations, 2 sports

I got 3 cards from 3 different envelopes today, It's been a pretty good week for getting cards in the mail. Brings me back to the days when I used to bid $.50 on each card. It's been slimmer pickings since I lowered it to a quarter. It was so low that I started searching for Vintage collection every day instead of once a week which is why you've seen some more vintage as of late.


I'm always surprised to win cards from the 70's, let alone, the early 70's. I picked up the 1972 Topps of Earl Williams for $.25/shipped. This is only my 29th cards from that set.


Now 80's cards, I'm never very surprised to win. I picked up the 1983 Topps of Shane Rawley for $.15/shipped. This is my 96th card from that set which puts it at just over 12% completed.


I did manage to come away with one player collection. He's been making somewhat of a name for himself in the NFL so he's getting more and more cards. This Devin Funchess Collection pick up came to me for $.23/shipped and it's my 18th card of his and my first that wasn't 2015. It's a 2016 Panini Contenders, my first non-rookie year card.

    1. Thanks. I bid on all kinds of cards from the 60's and 70's but rarely win them for under a quarter. I'm still surprised when it happens.
