Paul Konerko collection

I got a couple of packages in the mail that I’m going to have to get around to scanning.  Luckily, we have a 3 day weekend so I may actually get around to it.  Maybe.  One is from Judson over at “My Cardboard Habit”.  It’s 12 cards but they look better grouped together than in single pics so I’ll have to scan.  I also got another package from my cousin “Sluggo”.  He does card shows and such and he has people bring him cards and will buy out whole collections.  He goes through them, sets aside any Chicago White Sox cards he doesn’t need and then sends them to me.  He also sends me a couple of player collection cards when he runs across them.  The last package had a small stack of PC cards so those I will scan since I’ll have the scanner out.

But to today’s post, I grabbed this Paul Konerko for only $.21.  I thought I might win it because PK isn’t exactly a popular player but it’s also one of his minor league cards so I was extremely happy to win it.

Gary Carter Collection

I picked up a Gary Carter from his Montreal Expos days, gotta love the powder blues.  I picked up this oddball card for $.49.  Once again, I had to use the ebay photo as COMC didn’t have it for sell.  That means it’s rare, right?

Johnny Bench collection

I picked up a couple of Bench’s, which I have actually been doing fairly regularly since they keep putting out new cards of his.

The first card isn’t one of his newer cards but it was published almost 20 years after he retired.  I only paid $.21 for it which is always a great deal for one of the greatest catchers ever.  I had to use an ebay picture again since COMC didn’t have it listed.

The next card is one of the afore mentioned newer cards.  I picked it up for $.54 which is my max bid on cards.
