I got 3 envelopes today, although one of them contained a card I had already won a week ago. Since I didn't have it in hand yet, it wasn't on my spreadsheets yet. The seller I bought it from turned around and relisted it again and I didn't catch it until I bid on it. Oh well. At least I didn't pay a fortune for it.
I'm going to start with the vintage package. I bid on a bunch of cards from the 1967 Topps set from a seller. Now, when I search for my collection, my parameters are under a quarter and free shipping. This guys listings came up and I bid on a bunch of them. I ended up winning 7 of them and he sent me an invoice that said $2/shipping on it. I went back and looked at his listings and while he did mark free shipping, he had it in his description that it was $.50 shipping and $.25 per card after that. I sent him an email and told him to either cancel the order or send me an invoice minus the shipping charges. Unlike the guy I had a couple of weeks ago, I don't think this one was intentional. I went back and looked at other listings of his and he does offer free shipping on some of his cards, mainly the higher dollar ones. So I just don't think he changed the shipping when he listed these cards. He responded by sending me a new invoice but he made a comment about losing money. I paid for them and then told him I would have been okay if he would have cancelled them, I understand mistakes happen and like I said, I don't think he was trying to pull a fast one. Anyways, I got his cards today.
These 7 cards from the 1967 Topps set are definitely a nice add to a set I don't get to add to much to often. I picked them all up for $.25/shipped/each and they only put that set at 34 cards completed. These 7 cards also put me at 300 cards picked up for the Vintage Collection so far this year.
I also picked up this 2017 Opening Day card for the team sets. I grabbed it for $.23/shipped. It brings the opening day set to needing 8 cards but I'm guessing it's not overly large to begin with because I don't think I've picked up to many of them.
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/
