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.

10 cards, 3 hits and 3 free

I got a few envelopes with cards I purchased and some I didn't purchase in those same envelopes. I got 5 envelopes with 10 cards total. Even the 1st card of another player collection that I've been waiting to start.

We'll start off with some White Sox pick-ups.

I picked up this card for a whopping $.06/shipped. This card makes that team set down to 2 cards.

I also picked up this relic of Adam Dunn for the White Sox Collection. It came to me for $1.25/shipped. I think I only put a max bid of $1.50, if your a Sox fan then your well aware of the failure of the signing of Adam Dunn.

These 2 White Sox cards make 183 picked up for that collection so far this year.

2 cards for the Ripken Collection. The 2016 Topps Archives on the left I picked up for $.20/shipped and the card on the right, well to be honest, I have no idea where it came from. I put it with this card because I'm just going to assume the seller sent it as a bonus card. These 2 cards put the Ripken Collection at 330 cards and are the 18th and 19th cards of his picked up this year.

This was a 2 card lot of Barry Larkin and luckily I needed both of them. I won the lot for $.50/shipped which puts them at a quarter each. These 2 cards put that collection at 123 cards and they are the 12th and 13th cards picked up this year.

These 2 cards actually came free as bonus cards with the following 2. This seller read my purchase to almost perfection. I say almost because with the 2 cards above, he also sent a Rich Hill card. Now if the Rich Hill was in a Michigan uniform, it would have been perfect. The Jake Butt is my 3rd card of his and the Jourdan Lewis is the 1st. So what did I get (that's obviously Michigan related)?

These 2 cards came in a lot as well. Since I don't have many Mitch McGary cards, I went ahead and put $6 on the lot ($3 each which is my max bid on relic/autograph cards). What was a nice surprise is that I won the lot for $3 which equals out to $1.50/each/shipped. These 2 cards put the collection in double digits at 10 cards. Oddly enough, 5 of those 10 cards are relics and/or autographs. These were the first 2 cards that I've picked up for the McGary Collection this year.


  1. I laughed when I saw the McGarys because I almost bid on them from you since I was buying a bunch of other stuff from that seller (and I got a few extras from him as well because he's awesome). Great minds think alike!

  2. Even being Dunn, I would have picked up that relic for that price.
