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.

Fred comes through with Maize and Blue

I'm not doing a very good job at my Birthday posts. I've already missed 2. I don't look at my calendar on the weekend because I usually have nothing going on so I've missed 2 on Saturdays. I notice them coming up and tell myself, oh yeah, I need to do that this weekend. Then I forget.

Even though baseball is back, this post is not about baseball and it's a team collection post so you should be able to figure it out.

Football is a little shaky right now. After last season it can't get worse can it. This Derrick Alexander is my 13th card and he's before I started collecting Michigan players so all 13 are in the Maize and Blue.

This is my 7th card of the former fab fiver. I loved watching this team play, they are the reason I became a Michigan fan. Back then, I watched basketball more than anything.

I liked receiving these as Tractor Traylor was supposed to be the next big thing, literally. I only had 1 card of him before these 2 and it was an autograph. The card on the left is a die cut, all the white between the rim and the bottom of the card is all cut out. It's a pretty cool card.

All of these came from the guy at work who's been bringing me cards as he goes through his. He gave me a couple more White Sox cards today that you'll see at a later date.


  1. The stars must be lined up... because I just happened to show that exact Webber card on my blog post too. Actually... maybe not exact. Mine is some jumbo version that doesn't have a printed back.

    1. I saw that after I posted this and when I looked at your post, I didn't realize it was the same one until after I commented on yours.


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