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.

Weekend Catch-Up

I'm back from camping, got back today with a mailbox full of envelopes. So let's get to it.

I picked up this White Sox Collection card for a whopping $.01/shipped. You read that right, a penny. I didn't have it so I put my usual $.50 bid on it hoping that it didn't come to that because I didn't really want to pay that much so I elated to get it at a penny. It is my 10th card of Hillegas.

This is my 10th of Frazier, 9 of them are a part of the White Sox collection. This came to me for $.35/shipped.

I probably already have this but I didn't have it logged on TCDB so I bought it anyways. I still have a few boxes of cards that I have to log in but I'm still trying to get caught up on the ones I've blogged about. I picked up this card of Fox for $.36/shipped. It is my 8th card of Nellie.

I picked up these 2 auto's from the same seller. I thought I already have the Meaux (I have a bunch of his auto's) but this was numbered to /93 so I didn't. I got the Meaux for $1.99/shipped, it is my 5th auto out of 14 cards. That doesn't include the dupe autos that I have. This is only my 2nd Russell and it came to me for $1.49/shipped. This card is a 2008 and the other Russell card is from 2004 which doesn't bode well considering it's over 10 years later and I wasn't sure I had heard of him before.

This is my 98th different card of Zimmy so I'm closing in on the century mark. I picked up this relic for $2.55/shipped. It is also my 8th relic of Ryan Zimmerman

We got back from camping this afternoon so this was a quick post to get the incoming cards caught up that came in over the weekend. Hopefully I'll have the cards Dennis sent me all ready to go by the time I get a day that I get no envelopes in the mail.


  1. A penny? I will never understand why people list stuff at prices that they end up losing money on, seems kind of counterproductive.

    1. Me neither. Every time I win one, I keep waiting for them to ask for shipping money or ask me to buy more of their stuff. It has happened before.
