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.

  1. That's a mighty good looking card right there

  2. It's alright, it's no White Sox card or anything but it's ok.

  3. This is the first team card I have seen from 1973 Topps. I am not a fan of them. Most of the time team cards look bad anyway (but not always), but this one looks bad compared to team cards. I am a big fan of the 73 set too, I almost decided to build it this year but chose 74 instead.

  4. Well I feel bad now because I must have missed your Astros card you just posted.
