eBay Mailbag: 2002 Leaf

I recently picked up a lot of 2002 Leaf cards on eBay for about 3 bucks.  I actually had no 2002 Leaf cards in my collection.  All were brand name players.  At least they were at some point in their careers.  The Derek Jeter card was a nice addition.  Anyway, here is the loot.

The Repack Blues

I purchased a repack pack of 20 cards for $1.  Believe it or not, I think I overpaid.  I scanned the highlights below.  The Dave Winfield Tribute card is probably the best card.  It is from 1992 Upper Deck.  Keep in mind these are the best cards in the pack.  The rest of the cards were pretty much junk wax.

2012 Allen & Ginter Blaster Box

I picked up a 2012 A&G Blaster from Wal-Mart as an impulse buy.  I didn’t get any hits.  The best card in the box was probably the Brett Lawrie A&G back mini.  But the box was full of Yankees as you can see.  Out of the 7 Yankees cards, only 3 were present day Yankees.  Go figure.

Andy Pettitte Lot

My latest eBay purchase was a lot of 17 Andy Pettitte cards.  I paid 99 cents shipped for the entire lot.  For some reason, I had very few Pettitte cards in my collection.  I never seem to pull his cards.  I have had the same problem with Craig Biggio.  Go figure.  Anyway, I wound up with some pretty cool looking cards.  Unfortunately, some of them are dinged on the upper left corner.  I guess I can’t complain for the price.  The card with the gold background is a 1995 Fleer Ultra Gold Medallion card.  I think it’s my favorite of the lot.  It’s a very early card of Pettitte, although not a true rookie card as the card claims.  I no longer have an Andy Pettitte hole in my collection.

Trade With Chipp 'n' Dale

I recently acquired some new cards in a trade with Chipp ‘n’ Dale.  Actually, it really wasn’t that recent.  I’m just falling behind in posting.  I sent over a bunch of Braves cards.  In return, I received a bunch of Yankees cards.  I can always give a good home to cards of ARod and Derek Jeter.  There are even some Dave Winfield cards in there.  My favorite has to be the 1992 Classic Best Jeter card.  He looks really young in that photo.  It’s another successful trade.  Thanks for the cards.
