I received my ebay bucks at the beginning of July and I decided to head on over and spend my big money. I picked up 4 cards for my PC. 3 White Sox cards and a Tom Seaver card. Here they are.
As you can guess, I don’t purchase much on ebay by the 4 cards I purchased with all my earnings. I was going to make this a contest and have you guess what I spent but you could have gone to ebay and checked the completed listings and figured it out. So I guess I’ll just tell you.
$1.07/shipped. It took me awhile to finish this as the Seaver, Thomas and Lemon/Lamp card took $1.06. So it took me awhile to purchase something for a $.01. That’s where the Fisk playing card came in. I got it for $.01 shipped. I haven’t had any problems with the “free shipping” PWE shipping yet. Some protect it with a top loader, some don’t. I figure for the price I’m paying, I’ll take the chance. I’ve been bidding on anything vintage Sox that I don’t have up to $.50. So I’ve been making big purchases to work up to my next periods ebay bucks purchase. Not really, I get outbid quite a bit.
I’ve been scanning today, I have decided to scan all my PC cards and store them here on blogger. Why not, it’s cheap and easy. Just all the scanning sucks. I figure I label each card then you have a way to search. Maybe some of you do this already, but I thought it was pretty smart. I’ve scanned the Sox cards that I have gotten in the last few weeks in trades and such, plus scans I found I still had on my computer, so there are already cards on the site. THE SITE IS LIVE!!!! Sounds more exciting that way. I have a lot of cards to go through yet and it will be a constant work in progress I think. But if you want to check it out, here’s the link - http://mysoxcards.blogspot.com/. I’m certainly not expecting anyone to follow it or even check it out, but it’s there if you get bored.
Also I sent out some trade packages yesterday, or rather, my wife went to the post office for me and sent them. So if your expecting a package from me, you should receive it probably on Monday. And if your not expecting anything from me, you might get a package anyways. I traded with my cousin and got a few cards for trade purposes. So a couple of you will be surprised. I sent out 5 packages, 3 of you are expecting them. I was hoping to surprise the another person but I had to ask for her address because I apparently didn’t copy it down.
Also, a big shout out to AJ over at “The Lost Collector” who surprised me with this card for my PC. It’s pretty sweet. I hadn’t seen the green refractors yet, or at least live. And to have it be a Konerko just makes it even better. Thanks again AJ, much appreciated.
