Welcome

This blog is about sports and sports cards. Which both I love to talk about. My teams are as follows - MLB - Chicago White Sox, NCAA - Michigan Wolverines & NFL - Indianapolis Colts. Although I post my Michigan stuff to another site now - check it out at http://toomanymarios.blogspot.com/

New Additions - Vintage Collection, 1983

*For those new to the blog, all purchases were made on Ebay (unless otherwise noted) and all were under $.50/shipped.

I'm listing Ebay stuff but also I got an awesome package from Dennis over at "Too Many Verlanders" and my favorite "Too Many Manninghams", although you'll see a lot of that great stuff on the TMM blog whenever I get that post together. I also received 2 huge packages of mainly White Sox cards from Jeff over at "2 x 3 Heroes" as well and both guys also sent a bunch of vintage. I'm also randomizing the posts so let's see what's next.





2 more John Mayberry's and 2 more to the vintage collection from Dennis.
















Jeff added 14 more to the Vintage collection, representing all 3 major brands in 1983.






I even managed to pick up 2 more for the Fleer and Topps set from Ebay.

In case you're interested, the reason I pretty much always post pics of single cards is because of these 2 blogs that I use to store my cards. My Personal Collections and My Baseball Card Obsession.

Of course Dennis is going to hook me up with these 2 guys, they're both former Wolverines, so they are both cards that he collects. I had actually received the Emerald sparkly Getz in the mail from Ebay a few days after I got the package from Dennis.





Plus I managed to grab 2 for the Chris Getz Collection and 1 more for the Barry Larkin collection. You gotta love the picture in the Getz cards. It looks like Chris is going to take a foot to the groin from the player trying to break up the DP.

Jeff hooked me up with 10 Ripken's for that collection. Some new and some old, some oddball and some shiny.








I also picked up 6 more Ripken's on Ebay. This collection is moving right along at 167 cards now. All those are from trades and cheap pick-ups on Ebay or JustCommons.
