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.

I received 2 cards in 2 envelopes today. One I've been trying to win for under a quarter for awhile and one I stumbled upon for the first time.

This particular seller has been selling the same 2 cards, over and over again. I've been bidding on them over and over again. I finally won one of them back in February but the 2nd one still eluded me, until now.

Like I said above, I won the Jalen Rose just like this one back in February and I've been bidding on this one since before that and I finally won it. I picked it up for $.19/shipped.

I wonder how many of these cards that seller has had because he has sold a ton of them. Probably most at $.30 since I only bid a quarter.

I stumbled upon this one because it was listed under a buck. Which is what I won it for, $.96/shipped. Not only it is an autograph of one of the many next great things to be a bust White Sox player, but it's also seriel numbered to 500.


  1. I'm always somewhat amazed that an autograph can be had for under a $1, even if it is of someone that didn't have much success.

  2. I'm with Jon. In fact... I'm not sure what I find more amazing:

    A. Autographs sell for under a buck.
    B. eBay vendors are willing to lose money selling cards for 19¢ with free shipping (cheap way to build feedback rating???)

    Either way... congratulations on the purchases!
