This blog is about sports cards. I tend to only purchase cheap items so don't come hear expecting to see big money cards. My teams collections are Chicago White Sox and Michigan Wolverines. I also have a bunch of player collections.

3 Hall of Famers for the price of 1

I won a card that I've tried to get multiple times and received it today, along with a little bonus.

These 2 cards were just bonus throw in's to the following purchase. Really not too shabby of cards or players considering usually I get a couple of the overproduced cards from the mid 80's which I guess these are from that era but you know what I mean.

This is the card I actually paid for, $.40/shipped at that. It's a nice pick-up as it goes in 3 collections, Fisk, White Sox and the Vintage collection. It is my 162nd card of Fisk and the 47th card for the 1983 Donruss set.

White Sox Auto

Technically, I got 31 cards in the mail today but I'm only going to show you one. I decided to try one of those COMPLETE YOUR SETS buy it nows on Ebay. I took the set that I was closest to completing, actually, I chose between 1987 and 1985 Topps because I had the same amount of cards (709). I chose the 1985 set because it would be the cooler set to complete. I mean, 1987 set, everybody has those. So I picked up 30 cards from that set to put it at 739 cards, or 93.3% completed. I paid $4.99/shipped for the cards which equals out to just under $.17/card.

Before all you awesome people start offering to help me complete the set with a trade. I don't really trade anymore. I don't really have anything to trade with. I probably have a few dupes that I could get rid of but not enough to make the effort. So while I appreciate all the offers, thanks but no thanks.

Now, on to the 1 card I was going to show you which is probably a duplicate on this blog because I do already have it. It's a White Sox auto though and if I get them cheap enough, I'll keep dupes of autos and relics.

I only paid $1.32/shipped for this past prospect, as he's no longer even in the big leagues. Nor was he no longer with the White Sox in 2016 (his last in the league).

Canadian Fisk

Just a brief post for a quick pick-up.

I picked up this 1992 O-Pee-Chee for $.16/shipped. It is my 6th card from the O-Pee-Chee White Sox team set. I wasn't aware that I had that many until I looked it up. If you would have asked me before I looked, I would have said it was my 1st from the set. It is also my 8th card from the 1992 set and my 164th card of Carlton Fisk.

The Young and the Old

I got a few cards in the mail today. One player and a couple of White Sox collecton cards. The Sox cards are from a 2019 product that I didn't have yet.

I won both of the Gypsy Queen Green Parallel cards from the same seller. I paid $.50/shipped for the Rodon and $.49/shipped for the Lopez. Two of our young pitchers who are supposed to have great upside. It is my 21st card of Carlos Rodon and only my 6th card of Reynaldo Lopez.

I also grabbed another Seaver, my 3rd of this year already. I had only picked up 2 all of last year. What's even better is this HOF'r card came to me for only $.29/shipped. It is my 353rd card of the Seaver Collection.

All 3 Tiers

I got a few envelopes in the mail today but the USPS site said I was only getting 2 so I'm thinking I probably forgot to get the mail on Saturday. I tend to do that because the kids bring the mail in after school during the week and than I tend to forget Saturday's.

I picked up this 2005 Bowman Heritage for the White Sox Collection. Great pick up just because it was $.15/shipped.

My Tier 3 pick-up was this Johnny Bench from 2018 Topps A & G. I paid $.28/shipped for it and it is my 81st card of Bench.

My Tier 2 pick-up was this Mark Buehrle 2011 Bowman Gold that I snagged for $.30/shipped. It is my 187th card of Buehrle which is my 4th highest player collection.

Last but not least, my Tier 1 pick-up is my first pick-up of Konerko this year and is my 433rd Paulie card which is my highest player collection. I only paid $.25/shipped for this red, white and blue Prizm.
