Welcome

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.

PK Wednesday

I got a card today and it's a great card as in it's something I don't get to add to often. If you're a Sox fan (and maybe if you're not) you know who it is just by the PK in the title.


I don't think his cards get listed very often on ebay. In my eyes, he's one of the greatest lesser known players of the game. That showed all the time on the field when they would choose to pitch to him in occasions when they should have walked him. He usually made them pay for that. This card is my 448th of Paulie, it's a nice dual colored jersey swatch and it's numbered to /25 so it was a pleasant surprise to win this for $3/shipped.

A day late and a couple dollars short

I got a few cards yesterday but I was busy moving my grandmother and watching a waste of a football game that took away 3 hours of my life. Then I was just pissed and didn't do anything the rest of the night. So here's the cards from yesterday.



Picked up all 3 of these for the Baseball Collection, which is essentially cards that don't fit in my other collections. I picked all 3 up at a dime/shipped each.


I also picked up another Carson Fulmer for the White Sox collection. I still have a ways to go to catch up on my 2018 team sets. I picked this up for $.15/shipped.


I also picked up my 4th card of Channing Stribling, all 4 are autographs. I grabbed this one at $2.25/shipped.

Fun(chess) Tuesday

Hey, look who's back. I finally got another card in the mail. I won it about a week ago and it finally arrived today. Today is also the first day since I won that last card, that I paid for another card, so it might be another week before you see something else.


I picked up my 32nd card of Devin Funchess for only a quarter/shipped. I've picked his cards up pretty steadily since he hit the pros.  Steadily enough at 9 cards in 2016, 7 cards in 2017 and this is the 8th one this year.

Random PC Cards

Figured I'd pump out a random post since I haven't gotten anything in the mail recently. I have started bidding again but no more relics or autos until the end of the year due to the fact that I am taking the family down to Florida right after Christmas and it's slow at work so they are giving us a week off at Thanksgiving and as of now, 2 weeks at Christmas but that may be longer. So I'm cutting back to just quarter and cheaper cards for a couple of months. Let's get to the random post though.

Last 2, for now

This will be my last post for a bit. As I said before, last weekend was really busy and I never took the time to get on Ebay and this week has been catching up. I do plan on bidding on stuff again, probably this weekend, but I don't have anything coming after these 2 cards. At least for a week or 2.


We'll start with a virtual dime box pick up for the Baseball collection. I think that's pretty good for $.10/shipped. The corner was bent a little when I got it because it was only in a penny sleeve but those are the chances you take when you bid on free shipping. Very few sellers actually send them with just that though so it's usually an easy risk.


I also picked up this 1989 Topps sticker, this is just the back and that was how it was advertised so I was surprised that it still had the stickers on the front. Not that I needed those but I'll take a sticker back of Cal for $.25/shipped.
