First, I scored a decent lot of 27 '70 Topps cards...nothing earth shattering, but hey it's 27 closer to the set..
All 3 checklists have markings on them, no worries here though. For the price I paid for this lot ($5 shipped), their condition is fine. I can always upgrade later if I really need/want to.
Next, I put a bit of a dent into a long neglected set, 2008 UD Masterpieces.
Tom Terrific. It is even more terrific now that I have him.
This Yogi-ism is perfect for me. "you better cut that pizza into 4 slices, because I'm not hungry enough to eat 6." I love pizza....
Roberto Clemente. As close to God as you're going to get in the eyes of Pittsburgh sports fans.
Let's not forget about my favorite set, '77 Topps. I picked up only one card from the set, but it's a good one.
Finally, time to show off a couple of beauties from the '75 Topps set.
To be honest, I would have been happy getting just one of these cards with the funds from eBay. I am very lucky to have obtained both of these.
First, the Robin Yount RC
Yes, off center, and a ding on the lower left. Again, if I really need to I can upgrade later on. Still, I'm very happy to have it.
Last but not least, George Brett comes a calling...
Great card, corners are sharp and the centering is pretty good. I don't think I'll have to worry about upgrading this one.
I believe after all these purchases I still had about 5 or 6 dollars left to spend. I managed to sell the numbered Phil Pfister red A&G back for $15, so when that arrives to its destination I'll have a little bit more money to play with.
I could get used to turning cards I don't want into cash which in turn feeds the habit. It sure has helped me spend a whole lot less this month so far.
Have to get the disaster area cleaned up first. That....is a project in itself.
thanks for reading, Robert
