There is a nifty new contest at It's Like Having My Own Card Shop. The prize includes some neat cards from Upper Deck and Gypsy Queen. How does one enter you ask? Click here. Post a comment. It's that simple.
OK, so here is ARod lot number
two.This lot also cost me $1.04 shipped
from the same eBay seller as the previous lot.I received a total 16 cards in this lot.I think my favorite card out of this lot is the Allen & Ginter.It is one of the few cards showing ARod in a
Yankee uniform.And I just like Allen
My latest eBay purchase was a lot
of 15 Alex Rodriguez cards.Settle down
all of you ARod and Yankee haters.I
paid $1.04 with shipping for the lot.This
is actually the first of two ARod lots that I bought.I will show off the second lot in a later
post.These are mostly Mariner and
Ranger cards but that’s OK.I have been
accumulating ARod cards over the past year or two for some reason.Maybe I’ll sell them once he retires and buy
a yacht with the proceeds.Or maybe not.But I paid less than 10 cents a card which is
pretty good.But the way, if you haters
are looking to trade your ARod/Yankee cards away, let me know.
My latest eBay auction win was a
lot of 8 Grady Sizemore cards. I paid a
total of 49 cents shipped for the entire lot.
For the record, it cost $1.95 to ship the package. I think my favorite card of the lot is the
Allen & Ginter. Perhaps this lot was
cheap because Sizemore does not play much.
The oft-injured Sizemore has not played a full season since 2008. He has been on the DL with back problems
since the beginning of the 2012 season.
He is a talent but is so prone to injuries.
My latest eBay purchase as a 2012 Gypsy Queen
card of John Axford.I paid 6 cents
shipped for the card.This is my first
card of Axford and my first Gypsy Queen card.I like the overall card design and the fact that the card lacks a glossy
finish.Gypsy Queen seems to have plenty
of parallels which is a plus.However,
I’m not sure that I would shell out the $100-$110 that hobby boxes go for on
eBay.The cards are nice but they are
not that nice.I would prefer to just
buy and trade individual cards.Axford
has a bloated ERA so far, but he has saved 6 games.In fact, he just blew his first save in 50
tries.I have a warm spot in my heart
for closers.I have won at least one
fantasy league because of my closers.
I recently purchased a lot of 5
2011 Topps Lineage cards on eBay for 32 cents shipped.All of the cards featured Detroit
Tigers.I received 2 Victor Martinez
cards, 2 Austin Jackson cards, and 1 Al Kaline cardI don’t have too many Lineage cards, so I
picked up a few at a decent price.By
the way, Dave & Adam’s Card World sells a pack of 8 cards for $3.25.
I have been a New York Yankees fan for my entire life. I have collected baseball cards for over 20 years. I did take a brief hiatus from 1996 to 2004. Nine years is brief, right? I prefer cards made after 2004. I also prefer cards that measure 2.5 in. by 3.5 in. I also have a thing against baseball cards that don't feature a baseball player. I collect all teams and players, even the Red Sox.
