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.

Number 2 & 11

Down to 2 more days before I head to the National and my first Sox game in a couple of years. Eloy is back and Robert moved up to AAA today so I have my fingers crossed that he'll be back on Friday for my game with the Guardians, (who?)

Today's random came up with a player we had not too long ago but I just got more in my last Sportlots package so it'll be a one scan post but it's a guy that we've seen a ton of cards on here in the last few months.

All inserts or parallels. 2 great shortstops on that last card and almost 2 Michigan men. Jeter was supposed to go to Michigan (he's still a fan) but the Yankees do what they do best and threw enough money at him to change his mind.

These 4 cards put the Barry Collection at 683 cards which is good for 2nd place in my collections. Just for kicks, I looked up to see where I'd be at on TCDB, I figured maybe top 5. I knew Chris (Nachos Grande) and Dennis (Too Many Verlanders) already had me but I was way down the list. #11 to be exact.

Did anyone catch the post title? Number 2 (Jeter) and number 11 (Larkin) but also Larkin is number 2 in my collection and my Larkin collection is number 11 on TCDB.


  1. Very nice pickups, congrats.

  2. I'm a numbers guy... so I can appreciate your title and how it paired well with that insert, their jersey numbers, and your current ranking on TCDB.


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