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.

Lots of cards

I got 3 envelopes today, 2 had a single card in them. The last, however, had 15 cards. The big one was from the guy in Canada so he saved up about a month's worth of purchased and sent them all at once.

It's a big post, so let's get to it.

I picked up this 1988 Topps All-Star Glossy of Mike Schmidt for $.25/shipped. It is my 101st card of Schmidt. I remember these coming in the cello rack packs back then. I probably had most of them for a few years.

I also picked up this 1993 Fleer Ultra of Jim Abbott for $.25/shipped. He's in the worst uniform that I like to see him in (the first being a Michigan uni). I'm surprised this card didn't go for $3.00 just because it was a Yankee card.

These 4 cards all go to the White Sox collection. I picked up 4 of the 1991 O-Pee-Chee Premier (3 above, 1 below) and what I didn't realize was that put me only 1 card away from completing that team set (Tim Raines). I picked up the above 3 for $.10/shipped each and the Ryan Meaux for $.15/shipped.

I picked up these Panini Cooperstown's for $.18/shipped and $.20/shipped. They are both Panini Cooperstown but one is from 2012, the other 2013. These 2 cards put the Steve Carlton Collection at 81 cards.

I grabbed this 1986 Sportflics of Gary Carter for $.20/shipped. This card puts the Gary Carter collection at the century mark with 100 cards.

Here's the other 1991 O-Pee-Chee Premier card I mentioned above. This card goes to the Carlton Fisk Collection as well as the White Sox Collection. I got this card for $.23/shipped. It is my 147th card of Fisk.

I actually already had this card, when I bid on it, it looked familiar but my page said I didn't have it so I went ahead and threw the quarter on it. Then remember I got the whole rainbow of refractors of this card in one trade. Oops. I did end up only paying $.15/shipped so there is that.

I don't have to many post White Sox card of Buehrle, I have some with the Jays but his was my first with Miami so this was a nice grab. Especially for only $.23/shipped. This card is my 185th card of Mark Buehrle.

I also picked up this Jim Abbot for $.10/shipped. This Abbott, along with the one above, make 88 card for the Abbott Collection.

I got this other playing card (different set) only this time of Barry Larkin for $.10/shipped and the 1993 Leaf for $.11/shipped. These 2 cards put the Barry Larkin Collection at 114 cards.

I even managed to get an Aparicio this time around and for only $.20 but apparently I didn't check my lists because I already have it. So if you want it, let me know. JediJeff has first dibs if he wants it but if he doesn't, it's up for grabs.

I also managed a Konerko which is rare as well. This one came to me for $.16/shipped. Maybe it was cheap because it's an unlicensed card. Either way, this is my 409th card of Paulie.


  1. Let me see if I have that OPC Raines. Long shot, but worth a look.

  2. Oh man. I don't have that Abbott playing card in my collection, first time I've seen one. Nice pickup.
