No Vintage Here

I got one package with 3 cards in it for UPS today, which was nice because they brought it to the door and I don't think we got the mail today. We're bad at remembering to grab it when the kids don't have school because when they do, they grab it on their way in.


I picked up this 2016 Topps Heritage for $.24/shipped. I'm still 6 cards away from the set so while it helps. it only helps a little.


Also going to the White Sox Collection is this Carson Fulmer. This is my first of that team set so it's been added to my need list. I picked this up for $.23/shipped.


My non White Sox card of the day is this Gary Carer from 2016 Stadium Club. It's been continuously their best set every year. The photography alone makes it better. This is my 111th card of the Kid. I picked this one up for $.22/shipped.

Mostly Sox Sunday

It's been almost a week. It's not that I haven't received cards, it's been that I've been lazy. Sorry. So this is a catch up post. All but one of the cards go to the White Sox Collection.





I picked up all these from a seller that had a bunch of 1990 Score. I, of course, bid on the White Sox cards that I didn't have and this is what I came up with. I only paid $.05/shipped for all but the Thigpen ($.20/shipped) and the Guillen ($.25/shipped.)


I picked up these 2 in a lot of 2. I paid $.26/shipped for the lot so only $.13 for each card. I thought I had some other Update from 2017 but apparently not as these were the first 2.


I also picked up this card of Barry Larkin, it's from 1997 Pinnacle Mint. I'm not positive on why there is a hole in it. I would guess they have cards with coins and some without. I don't know, just an uneducated guess. This is the 146th card for that collection.

A basketball card?

I got one card today but it's one I've been looking forward to just because it's a fairly new player collection.


This is only the 4th card of Caris LeVert that I've picked up since he went pro last year. I picked it up for $.23/shipped.

Contest Promotion


I'm going to waste my 1200th post on a contest pimpage because the contest is that good. That and I wasn't planning on celebrating it anyways, I didn't realize it was 1200 until I came to blogger to post this.

Regardless, check out the contest at A Penny Sleeve For Your Thoughts. He's giving away $15 of whatever you want on COMC. You'd think he'd give away some of those cards in his title but hey, it's his contest. I shouldn't promote it because that means more people that I'll lose against but the 2nd entry will help me.

1974 to Ripken

I got 2 envelopes with 5 cards total. 4 in one and 1 in the second although the 1 goes right along with the 4. Of the 5 cards received, only 2 collections are represented and the vintage collection ones are all from the same set.


Obviously they both go to the Ripken collection but the card on the left I picked up for $.22/shipped and is the card that I won by itself. The card on the right came with the rest of the cards on the post. I picked it up for $.22/shipped as well.  These 2 cards put that collection at 346th different cards of Ripken.



I also picked up these 3 1974 cards for the Vintage collection. All 3 were $.25/shipped each. I bid on a bunch of '74s but these were the only 3 I managed to win. They make 169 cards for that set.
