Bargains on the 'Bay

My latest eBay purchase was for four cards. The grand total including shipping was $0.04. Pretty good, huh? The first card is a 2008 Upper Deck of former Yankee and mustache aficionado Jason Giambi. Giambi has kind of fizzled out this year with the Rockies. He has been relegated to pinch hit duties. It seems like his career is circling the drain. The second card is a 2008 Upper Deck Timelines of Mark Teixiera in an Angels uniform. Fortunately, Tex is having a monster season for the Yankees this season. I don’t have too many Timelines cards, but I like the design. My third card is a 2007 Upper Deck of Jose Molina. Molina has been a serviceable backup for the Yankees this season. I will admit that I am a bigger fan of Francisco Cervelli when it comes to backup catchers. He’s younger. He has more potential. The last card is a 2007 Topps Updates & Highlights of Eric Gagne. Reasons to hate this card:
It’s a Red Sox card
The 2007 Topps design is terrible
It features Eric Gagne
Isn’t Gagne playing for some independent team in Quebec these days? How the mighty have fallen.
Overall, not a bad haul for 4 measly cents.
