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.

4 cards and a week ago

I've been a slacker this week. I've gotten 3 envelopes with 4 cards in the mail this week but I haven't been getting them posted because, as I said, I'm a slacker. I actually got a Saturday off so you'll get to see them today.

I picked these 2 up from the same seller, they go towards the Vintage collection as well as the Steve Carlton collection.  I picked them both up for $.15/shipped/each. So both for less than a stamp. They make the Steve Carlton collection hit the 3 digits with 101 cards.

I picked up this for the White Sox collection for $.23/shipped. It's a nice and shiny card for my first one of Zack Burdi.

Speaking of shiny, I picked up this relic of Amara Darboh for $2.25/shipped. It's only my 2nd card of him but my first relic.

Lots of Shiny Autos

I finally got some cards after some issues. 4 cards in 2 envelopes. We'll start with the single card first as it was the envelope without issues.

This Topps Finest of Mike Hart was kind of a shock to win. I won it at $.25/shipped which considering it is a black refractor serial numbered to /99, is a great price. This is my 43rd card of the former Wolverine.

I picked up all 3 of these from the same seller. He shipped them via UPS with tracking and they were supposed to be here on January 18th and they never showed up. Late last week, I sent an email to the seller, I wasn't asking for a refund of any kind, I told him that I saw that they shipped but they seemed to be stuck in Illinois so he may want to look into it. No response but after a few days, I received a refund, but only for the Morel as that was the card I selected to send him a message. So I sent another message with the other 2 cards to let him know that if he's going to refund my money, then he needs to refund these as well. No response but when I came home today, they had finally shown up. So I sent him another email telling him they showed up and not to issue the refund on the other 2 cards. I checked the tracking and at that point, it still said they were in Illinois. A few hours later, I checked Ebay again and the cards were listed with a case closed because they were delivered. I ended up going on Paypal and sending the payment that he refunded me, back to him. Long story short, I finally got them. I paid $3/shipped for the Santos, $1.25/shipped for the Walker and $2.47/shipped for the Morel.

I got a card today, it was one I thought I already had but I don't have it listed so maybe I don't. It's an auto so I bid regardless if I have it or not. If it's a dupe Michigan auto then I check with Dennis if he has it or not, if it's a dupe White Sox auto then I check with Jeff.

I should start a player collection of him, according to my Michigan list, this is my 7th autograph of Adrian Arrington. I picked this up for $1.42/shipped so how could I really pass it up anyways.

2 teams, 3 cards

I got a few cards today. A couple I've been trying to win and a relic I've never seen.

We'll start with the relic.

I've seen the 2001 relics so that wasn't new, I just don't think I had come across a Royce Clayton one. Between being a 2001 and it being Clayton, I'm sure I would have won it sooner had I seen it. I picked it up for $1.51/shipped.

I picked up these 2 from the same seller. I only won them because I decided to up my high bids for Michigan cards from a quarter to $.50. I got tired of losing them for $.30 all the time. Although I picked these 2 for $.50/each/shipped. It's only my 2nd card of Chesson but my 4th of Butt.

Green Q

I got one card today, well, technically, yesterday but I went to the gun range so I didn't get time to post it then.

It's one of the ton of parallels to the Topps sets now-a-day. I like the looks of the different colors. I hate having to collect all of them. I picked this one up for $.23/shipped. I liked Quintana and was sad to see him go but I understand the rebuild. It's a feeling us Sox fans have gotten used to. It was a lucky trade for him though, he doesn't even need to move.
