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.

White Sox Auto

Technically, I got 31 cards in the mail today but I'm only going to show you one. I decided to try one of those COMPLETE YOUR SETS buy it nows on Ebay. I took the set that I was closest to completing, actually, I chose between 1987 and 1985 Topps because I had the same amount of cards (709). I chose the 1985 set because it would be the cooler set to complete. I mean, 1987 set, everybody has those. So I picked up 30 cards from that set to put it at 739 cards, or 93.3% completed. I paid $4.99/shipped for the cards which equals out to just under $.17/card.

Before all you awesome people start offering to help me complete the set with a trade. I don't really trade anymore. I don't really have anything to trade with. I probably have a few dupes that I could get rid of but not enough to make the effort. So while I appreciate all the offers, thanks but no thanks.

Now, on to the 1 card I was going to show you which is probably a duplicate on this blog because I do already have it. It's a White Sox auto though and if I get them cheap enough, I'll keep dupes of autos and relics.

I only paid $1.32/shipped for this past prospect, as he's no longer even in the big leagues. Nor was he no longer with the White Sox in 2016 (his last in the league).

  1. It's a good thing that you put that disclaimer out there, otherwise you'd have people coming out of the woodwork trying to unload their extra 87's on to you.
