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 - Vintage Collection (1986-1987)

*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 a package from Bru over at Remember the Astrodome so you'll see assorted stuff from him as well. He was originally going to hook me up with some 1984 Topps (which he did) but he ended up sending a bunch more vintage as well as some White Sox needs. I'll be randomizing the posts like I did the last bunch.

More Astros from Bru and a whole slew of 1987 Topps as well. All the ones picture were added to the vintage collection and that fat stack of 1987's put me at 76.64% completed which is by far the closest I am to finishing any of the sets in the vintage collections.

I'm just now watching the All-Star game that I recorded last week and I was watching the Franchise 4 ceremony and I was thinking that would make an awesome Topps set. I say Topps only because you would have to have logo's on that set. Wouldn't a set with the fan voted top 4 players of every team be awesome? If that happened, I may actually become a set collector just for that set. When using every player, there could be all kinds of subsets with in the set (inserts are a pain in the ass). I would so collect that.

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 (now with over 2300 cards) and My Baseball Card Obsession (now with over 2500 cards and almost 900 different card labels).
