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 Vintage and more

This is actually a 2 day post since I was to lazy to post what came in the mail yesterday. I got 1 envelope chocked full of cards yesterday and 4 cards in 4 envelopes today. We'll start with the chocked full envelope first.

I won a lot of 1978 Topps cards, I didn't bother looking to see how many I needed. I only had 118 to begin with so I took a shot. I even put a max bid at a quarter a card. This is what I ended up needing.

I ended up with 15 additions to the set. It was a 18 card lot so I say I did pretty good. After adding them to the list and recalculating, I ended up with 134 cards for the 1978 Topps set which puts this set at 18.5% completed. My winning bid was $1.62 so it equals out to 14 cards at $.11 and one for a dime.

Since we're on the vintage theme, I picked up this 1980 Topps for $.23/shipped. It puts that set at 137 cards and almost 19% completed.

I just picked up one of these Rite-Aid cards of Mike Schmidt, now I got this one for $.16/shipped. This 1988 Topps Rite-Aid goes to the White Sox Collection.

Now on to something a little newer. I picked up this 2015 Donruss Preferred for $.18/shipped. It would be nice if I could finish logging all my cards in so I knew how many Jose Abreu cards I had. I know it's not a ton but it would just be nice to know.

I also picked up another White Sox relic on the cheap. I got this Carlos Lee jersey card for $1.34/shipped. It looks familiar so I think I have one of these Timber & Threads jersey cards already, I just don't know if it's this one or not. I'll figure it out whenever I get around to putting the cards away.

  1. I just don't get how those guys make any money selling stuff for ten cents and so on. Is bulk shipping that low?
