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.

  1. That Through the Years relic card is pretty cool. I was always amazed by his accomplishments. Happy birthday Mr. Abbott!

  2. I have a few Abbotts, but nowhere near 257.

    My favorite here is the Olympics one.


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