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.

COMC Purchase #4–Tom Seaver

I had some money burning a hole through my COMC account and decided to spend it. The negative – I forgot to leave $3 to to pay for the shipping, so I had to add another $10 so I could ship them. The positive – that gave me another $7 to spend. I basically went through each player collection and picked up some cheap cards that I didn’t have. The following is previous entry’s on this purchase.

You can see above what is to come, if there is no link, it is to come soon.


  • 1976 Topps (NL Victory Leaders) ($.41)
  • 1984 Topps (NL Active Career Victory Leaders) ($.42)
  • 2012 Topps Golden Moments ($.44)

Always happy to get a vintage Tom Seaver card for under $.50, even if it is a leaders card.  All my 2012 Topps cards of Seaver have come from trades because I didn’t purchase any 2012 cards.


  • 2011 Topps Kimball Champions ($.46)
  • 2012 Topps Mound Dominance ($.44)
  • 2011 Topps 60 ($.43)
  • 1982 Topps (All-Star) (.44)

I was surprised I didn’t have the Kimball Champions.  I really liked the looks of the mound dominance cards and had been looking to pick one of those up.  The 1982 Topps all-star card has a lot of memories for me, I painted that in art class when I was in Jr. High.  If I still had it today, I would scan it and post it but I don’t know whatever happened to it.  It would give you all a good laugh because I sucked at art class.

I paid $3 to ship all 46 cards which comes out to just under $.07 a card.
