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.

Down goes the streak, and my internet

I didn't disappear this time, I swear. I was having internet issues and I got the Comcast guy to come out yesterday and thought he had fixed it, but apparently not. I do have internet, but it comes and goes so this post may take awhile to actually get typed out and posted. They are supposed to come out on Sunday afternoon to fix it (again). I'm going to take the router in to the local office tomorrow morning and replace it and see if that doesn't do the trick so I don't have to wait until Sunday. Wish me luck.

As far as the cards go, my streak ended at 8 days. Remember last week when I said we usually only get ads and fliers on Wednesdays so I wasn't expecting cards? Well, that's what happened this Wednesday instead. I did get cards on Thursday and Friday though so let's check those out.

1984 Donruss
1984 Donruss
I got both of these 1984 Donruss from the same seller on Thursday. The Gary Carter goes to the player collection where as the Harold Baines goes to the White Sox collection. The Baines came at $.38/shipped and the Carter came at $.55/shipped. I'm still a ways on the 1984 Donruss team set for the Sox but the Carter is my 80th card for his collection.

2015 Topps Chrome

2015 Panini Rookies & Stars
Thursday also netted me these 2 Devin Funchess cards. I got the chrome for $.54/shipped and the Panini for $.23/shipped. As I mentioned last time I posted his cards, his collection has been moving right along after his Super Bowl appearance. These 2 cards put that collection at 17 cards.

2013 Topps Cut to the Chase
This is a pretty slick card that I've been trying to grab for awhile, except cheap. I finally managed to pick it up for my max bid of $.54. I love the shininess and the die cut and you know, it's one of the best pitchers in the league right now and he's a Sox player. So much going for it, how could I not. The Chris Sale collection is now up to 105 cards.

    Don't use Comcast's rentals. They are total crap. Invest in your own router. There are plenty that will work fine and pay for themselves in 6 months.
