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 #17

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.

We left off on 1985, mainly because I’ve picked up a crap load from 1984 so it will get it’s own post.


1984 Topps – Bill Doran, Marvell Wynne and Pat Sheridan

I’ve scanned all these in sets of 3, some came in singles, some came as lots.  So you’ll just have to trust me that I paid less than a quarter for all the cards in this post.


1984 Topps – Allan Ramirez, Jack Fimple and Andy Van Slyke

I remember the Van Slyke being one of the must have rookie cards.


1984 Topps – Dan Morogiello, Charlie Hudson and Dave Anderson

I don’t know if I’ve ever heard of the first guy and I can’t say that about too many players in the 1980’s.


1984 Fleer – Tom Brennan, Mark Clear and Andy Van Slyke

That’s right, I got 2 of the must have Van Slyke rookies, woo hoo!


1984 Fleer – Mike Boddicker, Steve Sax, Dickie Thon, Tim Raines and Al Oliver

I know I picked up these 5 in a lot and I could probably check and see how much I paid, but I need to get some post done and we know we all just come for pics of the cards.


1984 Donruss – Dave Anderson, Scott Garrelts and Gary Pettis

Woo hoo, I got 2 of the 1984 Dave Anderson’s.  I know, not as exciting as Andy Van Slyke but hey, you go with what you got.  If you would have asked me what Gary Pettis’ rookie card was I would have said 1985, so I’m guessing maybe the Topps was just a FTC or in other words, we sucked and didn’t get him in last years set.


1984 Donruss – Bill Doran, Mike Young and John Stefero

I picked up a bunch of 1984 Donruss lots as you can tell.  Well, maybe not yet but you’ll notice by the time you get to the end of this post.


1984 Donruss – Danny Cox, Gerry Willard and Brook Jacoby

While I remember having 1984 Donruss as a kid, I don’t remember having a lot of them.  The local drug store must not have carried them often so I don’t recognize a lot of these cards like I do Fleer or Topps.


1984 Donruss – Kevin Gross, Dennis Rasmussen and Charlie Hudson

You got to love the San Diego Padres colors although those are the colors I associate with them even to this day.  I do, without sarcasm, love the Phillies powder blues though.


1984 Donruss – Allan Ramirez, Ray Fontenot and Jack Fimple

Now that I’m typing out the names for all these cards, I’m realizing I picked up multiple cards for some of the players.  I have the Topps versions of Ramirez and Fimple.


1984 Donruss – Tom Henke, Gerald Perry and Butch Davis

I picture Henke with the Toronto Blue Jays.  Powder blue uniforms with the Kansas City Royals though, must have been a color of the time.


1984 Donruss – Mike Stenhouse, Andy Van Slyke and Curt Wilkerson

Well looky there, I have all 3 Van Slykes.  I truly didn’t realize I had all 3 until just now.  The Stenhouse is the error version with no number on the back.


1984 Donruss – Mike Jeffcoat, Brian Dayett and Chris Smith

As you can tell, I picked up a lot of the Rated Rookies.  Technically I have 2 lots of 5 cards of them.


1984 Donruss – Greg Gagne, Mike Fuentes and Mike Brown

I’m not sure what denotes who gets a red flag and who gets a blue flag.  So far the Montreal Expos are the only team that is red.  I remember Gagne being with the Minnesota Twins for a long time and was a pretty good player.


1984 Donruss – Tom Dunbar, Angel Salazar and Doug Frobel

OK, maybe it’s not just the Expos with the red flags.  I suppose I should go and Google and find out.

This is the last of the 1984’s.  Check back for some older cards soon.


  1. Ah, 1984, a very good year for those of us who are Tigers fans. By the way, you might recall Andy Van Slyke's kid played football at Michigan: http://www.mgoblue.com/sports/m-footbl/mtt/vanslyke_jared00.html

  2. Those 1984 Fleer cards that match up are awesome!
