Speaking of Sportlots, I'm gonna start to show off my first purchases from the site. I was new to the site (still am) so I'd search by player, find a seller that offers free shipping to Sportlots and then I would search the seller for each of my player collections. I would find the 3 oldest, cheapest cards and then go to the next player. I'm sure the way I search will change, especially since the search on that site really is a pain in the ass, you can't even search by teams.
Anyways, I'll show off a couple of my tier 3 pick-ups today.
Not only did I get 3 Gary Carter's but all 3 go to the Vintage collection as well. Not to mention, I love the 1982 Fleer set, it was the first Fleer set I remember buying in packs. These 3 give me 124 cards of the Kid, 71 cards for the 1982 set and 634 cards in the 1985 set.
These 3 Ripken's add to my highest count player collection. They put it at 469 cards, slowly getting to 500.
