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.

Cheaper Than Stamps #7

This is a series where I show off cards I need for my PC’s that I pick up on Ebay for cheaper than a stamp.  My maximum I spend on these cards is actually $.30 so I get them quite a bit cheaper than a stamp.

See, I can get newer cards for cheap too.  A lot of my Cheaper Than Stamps have been junk wax era or reprints.  I picked this one up for the Mike Schmidt Collection for only $.27.  The Schmidt collection was one of my smaller ones so it works for me.

Ok, so most of them are junk wax but I still only paid $.29 for this one as well.


  1. I like to call what you are doing "virtual dime boxing". Basically, I see a card I like with free shipping. I bid a dime. If I win it, cool. If not, then oh well.

    1. That's kind of what I do but it's a quarter box. When I bid on ebay, I always add $.04 to my bids so if someone else bids a quarter I still win. That's why you see a lot of $.29 wins.
