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.

1973 Topps–Rookie Outfielders #611, Ted Sizemore #128

I’m collecting the 1973 set, slowly but surely. This post is the latest in my quest for the completion.


  • Card Facts – Rich Coggins, Jim Wohlford, Richie Zisk – Baltimore Orioles, Kansas City Royals, Pittsburgh Pirates – Card #611
  • Purchase Price – $.56 (Ebay lot 4/$2.24)

Seems like a lot to pay for a single card or even lot compared to what I usually spend, but the lot of 4 had a couple Hall of Famers with this card so I pulled the trigger anyways.  I don’t know Coggins, and I know Wohlford from the 1981 Topps set.  But Richie Zisk I know from my collecting days.  Of course, it’s mainly because of the last name starting with a Z.


  • Card Facts – Ted Sizemore – St. Louis Cardinals – Card #128
  • Purchase Price – free (Trade with “Crinkly Wrappers”)

Another poised shot.  But at least Ted is looking at the camera, that’s more than I can say than a lot of the other cards in this set.  And look at those side burns, and the color of the hair matches his uniform.  Ted’s got swag.

  • Cards posted in this set – 39
  • Total price paid – $5.15
  • Average price per card – $0.13
  • Cards left to post – 645 (including NNO Checklists)
  • Percentage posted – 39/684 (6% posted)
  • Percentage completed – 76/684 (11% completed)

Price per card went up with the big purchase of $.56 up there but another trade card from Ted helps keep it from going up too much.  Also got bumped up to 6% posting.  The percentage completed should go up as soon as I get some trade cards from Josh at “Royals and Random”.  I’m going to try to get those logged in later today so by Tuesday’s post they should be completed.
