Mailday – July 21, 2009

With all the different ways to obtain cards now because of this pipeline called the information superhighway, no longer do we as collectors have to head down to the hobby shops to grab a few packs of wax. I go through swings were I look more to do business on eBay as well as some other trading forums to get cards instead of busting the wax myself.

Today was a pretty fun mail day for me, here is what it brought…

15-1990upperdeckmattingly

I picked up this lot of 15 1990 Upper Deck – Don Mattingly cards off eBay for about $0.27 each, but after a shipping mishap on the sellers part he refunded me my purchase price as well as a few extra bucks for troubles – great eBayer! So I guess in the end I threw these into my growing Mattingly collection under the freebie column.

Next I was recently checking out a few threads on an autographing forum I am a member of and came across some 2009 Bowman baseball cards that the seller was looking to deal. It was one of those more you buy, more you save things, so I picked up the following for $15 shipped…

Sure, the Bowman is just some base, but I got a few players I like *cough*Yankees*cough* and a few other guys that are good players even those they don’t get to put on the pinstripes. I got multiples for TTM attempts (yes, I know good luck with the stars), or if anyone reading needs some of these cards to complete a set, or just for their own collections drop me a comment and we will get in touch and I will send them out to you on my dime for reading.
