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.

Mets win!

Hey, I finally had a Saturday off so I'm getting to post. I would have done it sooner but I had to take my 16 year old out for a drive. He has to get his time in so he can get his license. I'm posting out of a celebration that I survived. I kid, he wasn't that bad. He's actually over-cautious where as the 2 daughters I taught were the opposite and actually scared the crap out of me more than once. Either way, I survived to post another day.

I can't believe that both LCS's are down to game 7 considering the way they both started. I haven't watched any, I generally don't unless my Sox are playing but I may watch the WS when it starts.

The following cards come from a year back when I was a kid and specifically remember watching the World Series. It was the Mets and Red Sox and back then, I was a Mets fan so I remember the game 6 error by Bill Buckner. I remember watching the games on my small TV in my bedroom.

Jeff sent me these 5 cards from 1986 Donruss which is one of the sets I'm closing in on finishing. As a matter of fact, these 5 pushed it over 75% complete with 498 cards.

He also sent these 16 of the Fleer set. I'm a lot less further along on that set as these only give me 123 cards which is just under 19% completed. You'll notice the Bill Buckner up there, if he only knew what was coming at the end of the year. I felt bad for him, if I remember, he wasn't treated well by Boston fans for many years after that.

In the Topps section, you get the World Series winner with that Hernandez. Although he didn't do well until Game 7. Also a Rod Carew who is a Hall of Famer. 

All the above cards came from Jeff and as I said before, 2x3 Heroes sent me a huge package so you'll continue to see his name in these posts for a little while.

I also picked up this nice stack from baseballcardstore.ca at a dime a piece. I think it averaged $.14/each when I added the shipping.

These 37 cards put that set at 739 cards which is good for just over 93% completed.

I guess I need to get working on that Fleer set.

  1. I was watching the Buckner game, and my dad, who didn't care about sports at all, made me go to bed about 5 minutes before the Buckner play. Ouch.


Sorry about the word verification, but blogger sucks at filtering out the comments as of late. As bad as their last update is.
