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.

Wednesday DJ

I get a break today from birthday posts so I'm gonna throw up a new collection. I got this card in early September so for once, I'm not really late on getting it posted.

Here's another guy that I though wasn't ready for the NBA but he's still there after a few seasons. This is my 1st and only card I have of him, hopefully I can find some more. I'm getting ready to go through some of Sluggo's NBA cards, but most of them looked older so I'm not sure I'll find more or not.

Happy Birthday - Ryan Zimmerman

Ryan was born on this day in 1984, making him 37 today.

MLB Debut - September 1st, 2005 (Nationals)

Years Active - 

  • 2005-current (Nationals)
2006 rookie

Cards on TCDB - 6,055 cards

Cards I have - 130 cards

I figured I'd show off some horizontals.

Where they came from -

  • Ebay (60 cards)
  • Unknown (23 cards)
  • Sluggo (14 cards)
  • Just Commons/Card Barrel (10 cards)
  • 2x3 Heroes (9 cards)

That adds up to more than 130 but that's because I have some duplicate relic cards.

I do have 10 relic cards though, his are normally cheap.

Happy Birthday Ryan!

I posted these 2 because I loved this set back in the day. It was an introduction to older cards (obviously not these 2 cards, I've seen 1980 & 1981 before.)

I figured I'd show off some of his modern cards since I don't have any autos or relics of him.

Happy Birthday Mike!

Taco Sunday

 Sluggo and I headed to a card show, an actual show that was local for us. Most of them we go to are an hour or so away. It was the first one this guy was setting up and it wasn't great but we've been making some local connections which may be good for our eventual shop. I didn't buy anything and Sluggo only spent $3. Most of the dealers didn't have prices on the cards which is a big nope from us. I hate asking about every card, I'm not going to do it. I'll just keep walking. When we got back to his place though, he had a package in the mail that he bought from a guy back in NC. We had more fun going through that to be honest. You can see the some of the contents here.

For today, I'm hitting up a collection that hasn't been posted about since Christmas Eve, 2019. I didn't realize I had so many PC's that I haven't added to in awhile. I guess that's partly because I have so many of them.

I picked up these 3 on Sportlots, the Certified is #'d to /999. It's always nice to add a serial number when I paid less than $.50 for the card. All 3 of these are from 2017, he was with the Chiefs recently but I believe he just signed with the Steelers to play with a couple other Michigan guys there.

These 3 give me 11 cards of Taco.

Early bird gets the Wormley

I was supposed to go to a card show tomorrow morning. Sluggo and I usually go first thing in the morning, before the crowd but of course, I got scheduled to work so we're going to shoot over after I get off for a couple of hours and if it's worth it, we may go back on Sunday. I also had an offer to go to the Michigan/Rutgers game with Dennis and I would have gone to that over the card show but again, I have to work. I could probably get out of work if I tried really hard but I have a Sox game next weekend to pay for, as well as a Notre Dame/North Carolina and a Michigan/IU game tickets to pay for so I could also use the money.

As for today's post, I went to the list and I haven't posted any cards for this Michigan man since October 4th, 2019 so it's probably about time.

I picked up these 5 from Sportlots. The 2 on the right are the base cards (Phoenix and Unparalleled) while the other 3 are all color parallels. These 5 give me 15 cards of Chris.

I realize now there is a flaw in my system because according to TCDB, I added a Wormley card in May of 2020 so either I didn't post anything about it or I didn't tag the post. Oops. Might have to revamp my lists again.

Captain America?

Do you remember when I said that Sluggo and I went to a card show in Shipshewana a couple of weeks ago? Well, we made another video. Not made ourselves but were filmed in the background. Then again, we're hard to miss.

We're at the 4:54 mark. 

I'm in the bright safety yellow shirt. I have to say, I look huge and it's not flattering, it doesn't help that I'm slouched forward looking down. My cousin slips out from behind me just as it flashes away. I might have to start wearing that shirt to shows in case I make other videos, it's easy to spot. 

Nobody cares about that though, you're just here for the cards. Today is another new collection.

This was the first card I got of him way back in June. It came from Fred. I was pretty happy to receive it since it was my first card of Chris, but I've gotten more since then.

Remember the show I mentioned up at the top, I picked up these 3 at that show. All for a dime each. I found a great dime box and bought a bunch of Michigan cards there.

These 2 Leaf Draft cards came in my Sportlots box last week to top off the 6 cards to start my Chris Evans collection. He is currently with the Bengals, I don't think he's playing much but he is getting a little action.
