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.

Some sparkly parallels.

I have 6 autographs of Getz.

Getz gets the triple whammy of playing for the Sox, being a former Wolverine and he currently works for the Sox as the Director of Player Development.

Happy Birthday Chris!

Silver Thunder

The family decided to get a fantasy football league so I'm playing it again after probably close to 10 years of not playing. I went to the draft and barely new any of the names. It could be interesting.

It's fitting that today's post is basketball because I spent most of the day listing NBA cards on Sportlots for Sluggo. 

This is the Prizm and the Silver Prizm parallel. I also have the green parallel. These 2 cards came from Sportlots and give me 27 cards of McGary.

Leaf Count

 Another quick post as I'm sleepy.

It's also a quick post because I only have one card. According to TCDB, he only has 1 card so I have 100% completion. Does this make me a supercollector? Since it's only 1 card than you also know this is my first card of him. So many firsts in one post.

Small Hill to climb

I guess it's good that I'm hitting some of these Michigan guys for football since the season is coming up. I do need to get on Sportlots and finish up the football players. I've been trying to taper my spending because I went to that Sox game when I went to the national and I already have tickets for another game as well as a Michigan football game and I'm going to my first Notre Dame football game so between all those tickets, I've tapped a lot of my extra cash. Luckily I still have plenty of posts until I can start buying cards again.

Of course, I say all that, and my cousin and I are going card shopping this weekend so we'll see what happens there.

I picked up the Phoenix base and the Color Burst parallel of Hill. These only give me 3 cards of the former Michigan safety but he only has 27 listed on the TCDB so I'm at 11% completion. I looked and he actually only has 2 cards and a bunch of parallels. There is a 3rd but they are all 1/1's.

MLB Debut - August 10th, 1981 (Orioles)

I don't have a rookie card to show you.

I just realized I had 3 different pop-ups. I didn't know they did them that many years.

Where they came from -

Not surprised that Dennis is #1, I am surprised it was 200 cards. Lots of bloggers listed up there as well. F&G Sportscards was an 80 card lot.

Some modern day Stadium Club (and an insert because it looks like a SC).

Happy Birthday Cal!

Triple PC

 Today's random triples the collection of this player.

I picked up the base (paper, if that's what you want to call it) on Sportlots and the Chrome I grabbed from my cousin. This is only my 2nd and 3rd cards of Jack who played in the 2019 College World Series with Michigan. These are the first 2 cards in pro uniforms as well.
