Blowout Purchase #8

Leave a comment

I have no self control….


At least when it comes to cards. For $12 I got 4 SPs. Monte Irvin Roger Maris Frank Thomas and Andre Dawson
The other 2 SPs I got for free. Roy Campanella and Hank Greenberg. These were bought from forum member st0lenbase. I now have 68 Base SPs to finish my set!!  And on top of that I still need the 5 factory set exclusive cards for a total of 73 really hard to get cards. I still havent finished my trade list. Got to work on that.

Check back for another post soon!…

Blowout Purchase #7

Im Tired. This post will be short

I bought a ty cobb SP from member clarkzac for $5.

As a nice gesture he also included some base cards I need to finish the topps update portion of my 2011 topps set. That purchase was my 4th SP from 2011. I have 72 to go!!!

Thats all…see how short that was?


Blowout Cards purchase #6

Leave a comment

Time for another installment of the blowout cards forums. As a member of the forums ive had my share of comments, trades, and purchases there. Its mostly been purchases. Ive only traded twice and i have a total of about 500 posts although im not actually at that number yet. Anyway this purchase was from member JoeD617

For $7 I bought 4 SPs and there are pictures below. (I think)


and lastly…

Its the Update Series version (US#309)



Once again $7 got me these 4 cards and that was $7 shipped for an average price of $1.75 per SP! Now I know not to buy the rest of the SPs until the price goes way down. When these first came out they would have sold for maybe $10-30 right? Now youre lucky if you can get at least $5 for it. So heres my 2011 SP count with this purchase

Base: 3

Platinum Diamond: 1

Cognac: 3

for a total of: 7!!!

Am I looking to get the SPs from all the parallels? No. Just the base ones. The Cognac and platinum diamond SPs are up for trade. That reminds me that I need to get that trade list done. That will probably take me a year. lol….

Blowout cards purchase #5

Okay. Let me start out by saying that the picture may or may not show up on this post. If it does good if not then ill describe it. Another thing I wanted to point out was that these purchases are not in any particular order. 1-4 are just in whatever order I remembered to post them and 5- onwards are in whatever order I recieve them or whatever order I choose to post them in

Onto the subject. This purchase comes from member marcjack. For $3 I bought a 2007 topps chrome ryan sweeney auto. This is #335 in the set. This is my 2nd chrome auto and my 4th overall. I had originally planned to buy some SPs from him but when I found out it was $23 for both I decided this was cheaper for me at the moment. Also not to be rude but I could get more SPs for $23 if I could find sellers willing to sell that low. But I understand you want to make money so its all good.

Anyway thanks for the deal on the auto marcjack and to my readers keep reading.

Stupid camera. It has these moments when it just takes pictures and they come out upside down so I have to flip it over so it looks right.

Enough about the camera. I bought my first 2012 SP a few weeks ago from blowout cards forum member benshobbies for $7. Not too bad considering its new and its eric hosmer. I bought a few more cards on there but ill post them in a different post

For those of you who havent joined the blowout cards forums its a great place for cards (then again arent all forums good?). Im out of things to say now. Next is a good post on another purchase I made. So be back tomorrow…
