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.

New Additions - Chris Sale Collection

*For those new to the blog, all purchases were made on Ebay (unless otherwise noted) and all were under $.50/shipped.

I'm listing Ebay stuff but also I got an awesome package from Dennis over at "Too Many Verlanders" and my favorite "Too Many Manninghams", although you'll see a lot of that great stuff on the TMM blog whenever I get that post together. I also received 2 huge packages of mainly White Sox cards from Jeff over at "2 x 3 Heroes" as well and both guys also sent a bunch of vintage. I'm also randomizing the posts so let's see what's next.

Jeff added 4 cards to my Chris Sale Collection. How I didn't have the 2011 Opening Day is beyond me considering it's a "cheaper" set but I do now. I liked the Dealing Aces Gypsy Queen insert and the last 2 cards (I assume) came from his team box break of 2015 Topps. If you recall, I said in an earlier post that he sent me the team set from that set.

Some great cards (and a chip) from Ebay. These weren't actually part of my normal Ebay purchases. I paid more than my usual max for these. Why? Well, even though you don't see Dennis' banners up there, he had a part in these 5 cards. I picked up some card for his collections and since I was already paying shipping, I grabbed these cards from the various sellers I was already buying from.

In case you're interested, the reason I pretty much always post pics of single cards is because of these 2 blogs that I use to store my cards. My Personal Collections and My Baseball Card Obsession.


  1. Damn - nice purple refractors. There is something about those I like.

    I was shocked too when one of the cards missing on your sheet was Opening Day. I had to double and triple check the numbering and all.

    1. I couldn't resist the purple ones. They are awesome.
