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. As great as he was, no one should have almost 8,400 different cards. How is anyone supposed to collect all of those!


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