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.

Steve Carlton additions

Following our holiday weekend, I got an envelope delivered to my porch, because it would be the seller who sends me my winning via UPS (yeah, I don't get it either.)

I received 3 cards from the seller, all from the same player collection.

I picked up this 2009 Upper Deck for $.24/shipped.

I picked up this 2016 Topps Allen & Ginter for $.15/shipped.

Last but not least, I picked up this 2016 Donruss for $.23/shipped.

These 3 Steve Carlton cards put that collection at 90 cards and makes 10 pick-ups so far this year.

3 card Saturday

Just a quick post today. I got a couple of envelopes in the mail with 3 cards.

We'll start with the 1 vintage pick-up for today. Another 1978, I've seemed to pick up quite a few of that set in the last week or so. I picked this card up for $.23/shipped. This one is my 146th card for that set and is my 246th pick-up for the vintage collection.

I picked up a couple of more cards for the White Sox collection as well. The 1989 Fleer is an update and I may have the Baines already but I didn't have it listed so I grabbed it anyways. I only paid a quarter/shipped for each of them. They are my 197th different White Sox card picked-up so far this year.
