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 & Ginter.

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 card I 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.
