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.

Vintage Collection

I picked up a bunch of vintage collection cards about a month ago.  What you won’t see here is I grabbed about 33 cards from 1980 Topps.  A seller posted a bunch of cards from the Texas Rangers and the Oakland A's, he started them at a penny and I figured I wouldn’t win but maybe 5 or 6.  Wrong!  Like I said, I won 33 of them and the majority of those were between $.40 and $.54 so it cost me quite a bit at one shot, which I don’t like to do.  Either way, I didn’t feel like posting every card of those, so I’m not.  I will post the other winnings though.

They are listed in the order that I received them.

Marty Keough

1964 Topps Marty Keough

A nice quarter box find, only grabbed it for $.25

Bobby LockeTony Cloninger

1968 Topps Bobby Locke and Tony Cloninger

I grabbed these 2 1968’s in a lot of 2 for $.55 total, so essentially, 2 more quarter box finds.

Darrel Chaney [Good to VG‑EX]

1977 Topps Darrel Chaney

I remember the lower case a’s they use on their hats.  I grabbed this one for $.46

Reggie Jackson

1985 Topps Reggie Jackson

I know, it’s only a 1985 Topps, but it’s Mr. October.  I think it’s still a nice pick up, even at $.49.

Dick SchofieldKen Suarez [Good to VG‑EX]

1969 Topps Dick Schofield and Ken Suarez

I grabbed these 2 in a lot and I grabbed them both for $.90, which is equal to $.45/each.

Bucky Dent

1982 Topps Bucky Dent (in Action)

I always liked the 1982 Topps set for sentimental reason but I thought these in action cards were the coolest when I was a kid.  I picked this one up for $.47.  I probably overpaid because it’s a New York Yankees card.

Allan Anderson

1987 Donruss Allan Anderson

I know, nothing too exciting, but I nabbed it for $.17

Otto Velez [Good to VG‑EX]

1979 Topps Otto Velez

I got this one at the awesome price of $.15.  The cheapest COMC has it for is $.99 so I’d say it was a good deal.


  1. Huge fan of vintage... but today I have to admit out of all of the cards you purchased... I'm lovin' the 82T Bucky! What an awesome action shot.

    1. It's probably my favorite as well but that's because 1982 was when my collecting really took off so I have ties to that set.

  2. There's just something pleasantly awful about those early-to-mid-80s Twins unis.

    1. It's the powder blue, I don't know why I like the powder blue on uniforms, but I do.
