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.

5 Random PC Cards Plus 1

I guess I just started on a hot week that first week going 8 straight mail days with cards. This week I only got cards on 3 days and one of those was a package from 2x3 Heroes. I'm sure my wife appreciates it since I give her all the bills and pretty much everything else in the mail and I get to open cards. I hear about it all the time. Let's get on with today's random cards. I added a couple of hundred more cards to my Google doc this week that I'm trying to get every card I own listed. I'm still trying to list everything that's already on My Personal Collections, which is pretty much all the single card posts on this blog before I even pull out my boxes and boxes of common White Sox and Vintage cards and add those. It's a long and tedious process but it will pay off in the end, I hope.

Collection - Paul Konerko, White Sox
Card - 1999 Fleer Tradition Update
Player - Paul Konerko
Team - Chicago White Sox
Acquired - Just Commons
Price - $.12
From - Just Commons
When - February, 2016

I just picked this up earlier this year with my annual (that's what it seems) purchase from Just Commons.

Collection - Mark Buehrle, White Sox
Card - 2001 Fleer Ultra Gold Medallion
Players - Mark Buehrle, Lorenzo Barcelo
Team - Chicago White Sox
Acquired - Purchased
Price - $.10
From - Card Show
When - October, 2015

This was a dime box find at one of the very few card shows we have in this area. They hit the nail on the head with labeling Buehrle as a prospect, not so much with Barcelo.


Collection - Vintage
Card - 1982 Topps
Player - Jim Sundberg
Team - Texas Rangers
Acquired - Purchased
Price - Unknown
From - Ebay
When - December, 2012

When making the Google doc that has all my cards listed, I go through this blog to see what was paid for each card, but I didn't always list it, which is why this is listed as unknown. I do like this set though, and the vintage (now) jerseys.


Collection - Vintage
Card - 1981 Topps
Players - Manny Castillo, Tim Ireland, Mike Jones
Team - Kansas City Royals
Acquired - Purchased
Price - $.15
From - Ebay
When - January, 2012

This card was just added to the list yesterday. The $.15 on Ebay was out of a lot of cards. I picked up a lot of 4-10 card lots of this set back when I was collecting just this set and hadn't started the whole vintage collection yet. More powder blue jerseys from the 80's.


Collection - Vintage
Card - 1973 Topps
Player - Fran Healy
Team - San Francisco Giants
Acquired - Purchased
Price - $.31
When - January, 2012

I purchased a huge lot of 1973 Topps from Crinkly Wrappers back when I was specifically going for this set. I don't have the numbers in front of me but I think it was just under 200 cards that I needed and it equaled out to $.31 each.

I decided that I will add a random card from My Baseball Card Obsession as well, these aren't necessarily cards that I own so it really could be anything. Even though I'll random, I'll random until I come across a card that I don't have.

Card - 2016 CBC
Player - Yasmany Tomas
Team - Arizona Diamondbacks

For those that don't know, My Baseball Card Obsession also has custom cards from custom card bloggers. This one comes from Jason's Custom Trading Cards...and Other Random Stuff. I don't ask permission from these bloggers but I always link to their pages so I'm definitely not taking credit for them. I figured if they minded, they would let me know and I would take them down. Here's the link to his direct post for this card.


  1. I envy your organization - seriously, that's some pretty detailed record keeping!

    1. I just wished I would have started when I started collecting then it would be an easy day to day thing. It's taking forever to get caught up.
