6 card Tuesday

I got 3 envelopes today with 6 cards. Although 4 of those were in one envelope. I grabbed 2 of the envelopes from the mail box and another came delivered to the door via UPS. I don't understand how people make money sending me cards that cost more then a stamp, let alone shipping UPS but whatever. I'm just glad someone is home when they come because who knows how long that small envelope will sit there unnoticed. Let's start with the 4 cards.



This seller had a ton of 1980 cards for sell and I didn't want to win a bunch of them because that would be expensive so I just bid on the White Sox cards that I needed. All these go towards the Vintage Collection and the White Sox Collection. The Sox team set is down to 6 cards. I paid a quarter/shipped for all of them.


I picked up this serial numbered (I know it's only a gold card) of Mark Buehrle. It came to me for $.20/shipped. It is the 191st card of his for that collection. I like the look of the gold cards in 2015.


Last but not least, I got this great deal. A Nik Stauskas autograph, #'d to /25, and I only paid $1.42/shipped. This is my first auto of his and I'm pumped to get it. I don't get very many player collection auto's or relics for under $3. This is only my 5th card of Stauskas.

This week's additions

I slacked again and didn't get around to posting on the days I received something. I did only have 2 days where I got envelopes in the mail but 1 envelope had 27 cards in it. He had a bunch of vintage listed and I managed to pull away with some.



I won these 4 from the 1980 set for $.25/shipped, $.25/shipped, $.22/shipped and $.18/shipped. These 4 cards put that set at 164 cards.










I picked up these 13 cards from the 1979 set. They were all a quarter or less shipped. A few of those were a dime cheaper than that. All of these put that set at 329 cards.


Only 1 card picked up for the 1978 set and it came for $.23/shipped. This is my 151st card for that set.






These 9 cards from the 1977 set all came for a quarter or less shipped (as you already know). These cards put that set at 112 cards.

These 27 cards going to the Vintage Collection makes 282 cards picked up so far this year. The 2 White Sox cards up there make 202 picked up for the White Sox Collection so far this year.


This pick up for the Mike Schmidt collection comes to me at $.25/shipped. It is my 109th card of Schmidt and my 13th pick up so far this year.


I picked up this Todd Collins for the Michigan Collection for $.17/shipped. I'm always happy to pick Michigan cards up because they are hard to come across at the prices I pay. This is only the 9th card I've picked up in the almost 7 months so far this year.


Following up the Michigan collection card is another Wolverine that I have player collections of. I grabbed this for $.25/shipped. This is the 136th card of the Larkin Collection and my 27th card picked up so far this year.

This weeks additions

I've been lazy this week and haven't been posting what I got in the mail. It's been a lazy week and I really don't have an excuse but I'll sum up my cards all in this post.


I picked up these 2 cards from the same seller for $.25/shipped and $.23/shipped. These both go to the Vintage Collection and they put the 1979 set at 316 cards.



All 4 of these came from the same seller. I also picked these up for the same price as the 1979's. 2 of them for $.25/shipped and 2 of them for $.23/shipped. These 4 cards put the 1978 set at 150 cards and all of the 6 cards make it 254 cards picked up for that collection.


No, it's not a 1992 Topps. It's a 2010 reprint of the 1992 topps, it's from the insert set Cards Your Mom Threw Out but it's a Ripken I didn't have. This makes 335 cards for that collection and it also makes 25 cards picked up this year.


I picked up this autograph of Jacob May in a lot of 2 cards. The other was an autograph of Jose Ramirez of the Yankees from the same set. I only paid $2.76/shipped for the lot which all goes towards this card because I have no need for the other. This is my 200th pick up for the White Sox Collection this year.

Lottsa Cards

When I got the mail today, I thought maybe the post office was holding my mail and decided to deliver it all at once. I had 7 envelopes waiting for me. Once I started to open them though, I realized that a seller that I had won 11 cards from, all at the same time, divided those cards into 4 envelopes. So technically, I received from 4 sellers, in 7 envelopes. We'll start with the single card envelopes.


I picked up this Todd Frazier card from the 2017 Finest set. It was my first from the team set, I had to go get the checklist because I hadn't updated it yet. I grabbed it for $.15/shipped.


I was surprised to win this for $.22/shipped. It is a 2016 Bowman Chrome Purple Refractor numbered to /250. Like I said before, I think I've been picking up his good Sox cards cheap since he has gotten traded to the bad Sox. The 2 White Sox cards above are my 198th and 199th cards picked up for that collection. The Sale card is my 128th of his collection and my 16th card pick up of his this year.



These must have come from the ESPN seller since I managed to win the Red Sox and Yankees cards. I picked both of these up for the Vintage collection for $.23/each/shipped. They are my 160th cards from that set and my 247th and 248th card picked up this year so far.










These 11 cards of Barry Larkin all came from the same seller, and all for the minimum bid of $.25/each/shipped. These put that collection at 135 cards and I've picked up 26 of his cards so far this year.
