eBay Mailbag: 2009 Topps T-206

My latest eBay purchase was for three 2009 Topps T-206 cards of Luke Hochevar, Tim Hudson, and Kosuke Fukudome. I paid a grand total of 8 cents shipped. I really like the retro cards because there is no gloss on the surface of the card. The backgrounds leave a little to be desired, but the images of the players look really sharp. The set has all sorts of variation and parallels which is an added bonus. I have never actually purchased a box, pack, or even a single of this product. Maybe I will do so next year if the product still exists.

Derek Jeter Rookie Cards and More

I bought an interesting lot on eBay recently. I paid $13 shipped for the entire lot. I received a 1993 Topps Jeter RC and a 1993 Upper Deck Jeter RC. I bought the lot to get those two cards. I love the 1993 Upper Deck card. I have about 8 of them. I also got a Manny Ramirez Upper Deck RC, a Michael Jordan baseball card, and a Huston Street base card. But wait, there’s more. I received three game-used jersey cards of Kerry Wood, J.D. Drew, and Pee Wee Reese. I think I got a good deal when you consider the other cards that I received. I will probably keep the Jeters and trade/sell the others.
