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.

Today you get to see a player collection that you don't get to see much. I'm not sure why, but I just don't get very many of his.

I picked up this Upper Deck for $.23/shipped. This is my 88th card of Zimmerman. I don't know if he just doesn't have a lot of cards or if they go higher than I expect.

Alexei Sunday

Another Sunday post, well aren't you all lucky. As you can tell, the picking up of cards has picked up. Not to mention, Dennis at "Too Many Verlanders" and the better "Too Many Manninghams" sent me a package that I have to post. I've gotten the cards logged, just not scanned. Before all that though, I have a couple more posts, including todays.

I picked up this relic of Alexei Ramirez for only $1.25/shipped. I like that they use the Sox colors for the background but what I really like is that its a patch from a throwback jersey, and with a stripe.

Mike in action

One more single card post, which I guess is what the majority of mine are when I post by the envelope. This is another Vintage collection card but it's one of my player collection cards as well.

I picked up this for the Mike Schmidt collection for $.16/shipped. To be honest, I've probably seen it before because in 1985 I was collecting but I don't really remember it. Either way, it's a part of my collection now.

A Vintage Post?

I finally picked up some vintage. I hadn't bid on very many because I was winning a small fortune and had to cut back a bit. That's not the issue now, I just haven't taken the time to look. I've used up all my saved searches on my player collections so I have to manually go through each year so I usually do so on the weekends, when I remember.

I picked these 3 up for $.15/shipped, $.17/shipped and $.25/shipped. I bid on a ton of 1975's and only ended up with these 3 and these 3 put that set at 46 cards. I thought I had more than that considering I have the Sox team set.

First Heritage

Another single card envelope today.

I picked up this 2018 Heritage for the White Sox Collection for $.24/shipped. Last I heard Abreu is on a hit streak around 7 or 8 games so he's apparently the only offense we have at the moment. This is only the 5th card I have from any of the 2018 sets, the first from Heritage. Which is about right, since I only pay a quarter, I'm usually a year behind picking up cards.

1984 All-Stars

I know it's Sunday and there is no mail, but I'm still playing catch-up so you get a post anyways. Be sure to check out my post on Too Many Manninghams from last night to see a bunch (7 cards) of autos and relic cards that I picked up of former Wolverines.

This card goes to both, the Gary Carter collection as well as the Vintage collection. I was a huge Strawberry fan growing up as well so I really like this card. I picked it up for $.16/shipped. It is my 114th card for the Carter collection and my 247th card in the 1985 fleer set.

Shiny Sox

I got another envelope with a single card. This one goes to the White Sox collection though.

I picked up this Gold Label, which are really nice cards, for $.15/shipped. I'll definitely take shiny Sox cards for $.15. I liked the signing of Frazier and he seems like a good guy but he didn't produce like I thought he would. I was still sad to see him go but I get that way with most of the players unless I just really don't like him.

A Knickerbocker

Another 1 card envelope today and instead of a baseball card, you get a basketball card. That should narrow down which collection it's going to.

I picked up this Hardaway jr for $.23/shipped. It's my 11th card of Tim and my first from the current year.

Logoless cards

I'm getting behind on posting my envelopes. Especially since I received 5 different ones today. Back to this post, I received these 2 cards last week from the same seller.

This is my 1st card from the 2018 Donruss set, base card at least, I picked up a variation last week but this was the first from the actual team set. I picked it up for $.20/shipped.

I also picked up another non White Sox Chris Sale for $.20/shipped as well. It's my 132nd card of Sale but only my 4th in the wrong Sox gear.

Relic for Sale

I know I've missed a few days but I've got good reasons, if you follow me on other social media, you'll know the reasons but I'm here today so here you go.

I know what you're thinking, relic card of Chris Sale, numbered to 25, there's no way he got that for $3. Well, you're right. I only paid $2.52/shipped. I know it's an unlicensed product but still, under $3.

Top prospects

I grabbed both of these from the same seller for the White Sox collection.

I'm always happy to pick up his cards, he was a high prospect who's already playing in the majors. He has a ton of upside so his cards go for more than I usually pay. This is only my 2nd one of Yoan. I grabbed this one for a quarter/shipped.

This is another prospect that is starting for us now so I only have 2 of his, the other shown last week. I also got this one for a quarter/shipped. I do like the blue on this card, black would be better, White Sox cards always look better in black, but the blue is slick.

Green White Sox

Another day, another relic, or 2. I grabbed both of these from the same seller.

I know I have some of these but I don't think I had the Jake Peavy. If I do, I'm pretty sure I don't have the one with the green stripe like this one. I assume that's from their half-way to St. Patricks day game. I picked this up for $1.99/shipped.

Now this one I may have, although I don't think I have a solid black piece but I might. Or I might not have it at all. I'll figure it out when I put it away in it's binder. I picked this one up for $1.99/shipped as well.

To cold here for a Sanburn

I know it's Sunday, and I didn't receive any mail but I'm behind so you'll get another card today. I'm also sorry about the title, but it came to me and wouldn't let go.

Nolan is no longer with the Sox, we released him last year and he's with the Nationals now but I still need this for the White Sox collection. I only got it for $1.77/shipped.

Ray Ray Gamer

Another 1 card post for today, but it's a relic. I'm not sure why but I've been winning relics and autos quite a bit recently. I haven't changed the way I bid, but all of the sudden I'm winning. Not that I'm complaining but you'll get to see some in the next week or so.

I picked up this relic of Ray Durham for $2.25/shipped. It's nothing fancy but some of those early 2000's weren't and I can usually pick these up fairly easily for under $3.

New player collection

3 days in a row, I know your shocked. It's also my 3rd Wolverine in a row. Don't worry, I'll get back to my other collections. This is just the way the cards came in.

This would have been better if he was in his Maize and Blue but it'll do this way to. I bid on this thinking I had a player collection of him but apparently I don't. I checked Ebay and I don't have a search for him, I'm not sure how that happened. I have one now though and I found 2 other cards of his in my Michigan collection so it's up to 3 cards now. I thought maybe he went pro before I started my player collections of Michigan players but Denard was drafted in 2013 and Jake was in 2015 so I just missed him somehow. This is the first autographed card of him and I got it for $2.60/shipped.

Barry! Barry! Barry!

One card for today. I'm posting how they came in so it's just coincidence that it's a former Wolverine, as was yesterdays card, as is tomorrows card as well.

I'm guessing you've heard of Barry even if you're not a Wolverine fan. I always have to be careful bidding on these Topps Bunt cards because sometimes they are a digital card. I picked this one up for $.17/shipped. It is my 155th different card of Barry Larkin.

I posted, finally

I've been a slacker again, which is really pathetic since it's not like I type out a whole lot because, again, I'm a slacker. I'll get caught up, eventually. Starting with today.

I picked up this Stauskas for $.23/shipped. This is my 6th card of Stauskas, half of those being pro cards but this is the first with the Nets.
