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.

Vacation Pick-Ups #1

I’m going to start off with some of the newer pick-ups and work to the better stuff.


Picked up the top 3 for $.20/each and the bottom 2 came from Sluggo.  Always love the Xfractors and check out the black border Omar Vizquel.  Those are numbered to /99 but you have to love black border White Sox cards.


Most (if not all) came for $.20 each.  Nothing extremely exciting but I needed all of these for the White Sox Collection.


Here are a few oddball cards that I picked up at the same price.  You gotta love the Michael Jordan at the top and the minor league Frank Thomas at the bottom left.


I also picked up these 3 80’s cards but all great White Sox players.  I know, I promised you great cards in these Vacation pick-up posts but come back tomorrow for some 70’s pick-ups.  Ok, ok.  I’ll show you some vintage.


Look at those!  Ok, I can’t do that to you.  These are reprints that were put out in the early 90’s (I think) by Red Heart Dog Food.  But I still think they are cool.  These are glossy though, not that I have a problem with that, but it doesn’t go well with vintage look-a-likes.

Come back tomorrow for the start of the true vintage.  I promise.
