I'm sorry for lack of updates. My plan when I got back in the swing of things was a post at least every other day. To be honest, I'm not back in the swing of things. I am getting back in the routine of checking out sites, but not as often as I have in the past. Part of it I think is because its the holiday season, and part of it is because I got hooked on playing card games on the computer while I wasn't online, and still have been playing a lot. I'm sure it will be out of my system soon. I still haven't touched my scanner, but I thought I would post a lot I won on Listia a couple months ago that I scanned last month. Oddly enough, I haven't been into Listia as much as of late, but I figure I'll start winning stuff again soon. In the meantime I do have a few random lots to show off, here is one of them.
I spent 499 points on this lot. Looking back, I'm not sure what my mindset was in bidding on these. None seem to be cards I needed to complete a set. That's to say I didn't need one more card to complete a set, I believe I needed all these cards. The last few days I've passed up a few similar auctions such as this so maybe I was just in a buying mood.
Mike Sweeney as a catcher on a card is appealing to me. I don't think I have (m)any. The other two that possibly got me interested was the Topps 2000 of Carlos Febles, which I think the 2000 set was pretty nice and underrated (much better than the 2001 set). The other card is the Jose Offerman card. I remember having this card at one point, and its another set I liked too.
Looking back I guess 499 points isn't too bad. I now need to catalog these and keep working on my collections. I hope to have an update soon on that front.
Thanks for reading and have a great day.
