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 - Tom Seaver

*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.

1974 Topps

1974 Kelloggs

1976 Kelloggs

2013 Topps Chasing History

Those are some awesome Seaver cards from Dennis, some great vintage. I thought I had the Chasing History one but apparently he has more than one.

2005 Donruss Throwback Threads

2012 Topps Gold Standard

2013 Topps Archives

2014 Topps Gypsy Queen N174

2015 Topps Inspired Play

5 cards added by Jeff. Even though I was a Mets fan growing up, I always remember Seaver as a Red so I really liked the first card. The Gold Standard card was the same as the Chasing History card from Dennis, I thought I already had it. I knew they had multiple cards for some players but I already had 2 and didn't realize there was 3. I like the archives too, mainly because I like the 1982 look, you know, because it was during my original collecting years.

Only 1 card from Ebay, but an O-pee-chee. Even though it's a 1987 card, I didn't think I'd win it because of that.

Just before I posted this, I went to tag all the teams shown and realized out of all 10 cards that I got of Seaver, none of them were for the White Sox, and I got cards from a White Sox fan. Just found that interesting because usually that's what I get from people are White Sox cards. Just shows how well Dennis and Jeff know my collections.

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.
