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 got a card

I got 1 card in the mail today. While it might be considered junk wax, it's still a Hall of Famer and one of those unusual cards when you see him in a certain uniform and it just doesn't look right.

Gary Carter with the Giants? While it's odd to see him in a Giants uniform, it is my 6th card with him in those colors. Being a 1991 Donruss, I was surprised I didn't already win it. Either way, here it is. I grabbed it for $.20/shipped. It's my 108th card for that collection and my 9th pick up of his this year.


  1. Odd is right. I alternately recognize him as Expos and Mets in the way I see players like Pete Rose as Phillies/Reds, Tug McGraw Mets/Phillies. But Gary "The Kid" Carter as a GIANT?

    1. I've seen his cards that way a bunch of times and I still can't get use to seeing him in that jersey.
