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 #58


Yesterday, we finished with the player collections.  Today we start (and finish) with the White Sox team set pick-ups.  From newest to oldest.


2014 Topps – Alexei Ramirez, Dayan Viciedo, Matt Lindstrom, Hector Santiago, Josh Phegley, Jeff Keppinger, Jose Quintana, Erik Johnson and Andre Rienzo

This is the whole series I team set, minus the Chris Sale because it goes to the Chris Sale collection and now I need to pick one up for the team collection.  I grabbed this whole lot for $2.28 for 10 cards which equals out to $.23 a card so it was still under budget.


Dayan Viciedo – 2013 Topps

Um, I have no record of purchasing this card.  I went all the way back to November of last year and couldn’t find it.  I promise that I got it for under $.29.

Somehow, I didn’t win and other newer cards so let’s get to the vintage portion of todays post.


1972 Topps – Wilbur Wood

I already had one of these in the Wilbur Wood collection so I grabbed this copy to go in the White Sox collection.  I actually picked up a 3 card lot of 1972 cards so the other 2 go to the Vintage collection.  I paid $.79 for the lot, which equals to $.26 each.


John Buzhardt – 1966 Topps

I grabbed this card for $.30.  It helps with that team set but I still need a bunch of cards, so it didn’t help much.  I’m not going to turn down a 60’s card for under the cost of a stamp though.


Eddie Fisher – 1964 Topps

Ditto with this card, I still need a bunch for this years team but again, a 60’s card for $.29.  You can’t really beat that, it’s essentially a quarter box find.

That completes all the cards I got for the White Sox collection.  Come back tomorrow as we start with the Vintage collection pick-ups.
