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.

January Pick-Ups - Cal Ripken Jr Collection

This months pick-ups come from
  1. Dennis at "Too Many Verlanders" and "Too Many Manninghams"
  2. Sluggo (my cousin)
  3. Ebay
  4. Packs (I actually bought some packs)

I've randomed and todays selection are going to the Cal Ripken Jr Collection

1987 Fleer Baseballs Best Sluggers
1994 Topps Black Gold
Got these 2 of Cal from Dennis who is also a Ripken collector. I always enjoy the 80's fleer best sets, I used to pick up every one I could because they had so many superstars. Also the rare black gold from 1994. I really don't know how rare they are but I know when I bought stuff in 1994, I didn't get very many of them

1994 Topps Gold
Another 1994 Topps gold, just without the black. Picked this up for $.46.

1991 Field of Vision Silver Star Holograms
I don't really know what this is but that was the label on the Ebay listing. I picked up this semi-oddball card for $.34.
2012 Topps Archives
Vintage look is always good, especially when you only pay $.34.
2012 Topps Archives Reprints
We finish it off with another card that looks older than it is. This one was also $.34.

Technically the last 3 cards were in a lot which is why they all listed at $.34. It was actually a 5 card lot, it came with 2 duplicates of the 2012 Topps Archives up there. So since we are being technical, I only paid a little over $.20 a piece.

  1. Cal looks like some alien in that Silver Star scan.
