Odds and Ends

Not a lot to post today, but I need to get back into posting, so its better than nothing.  Here is some stuff I recently found or won on Listia.  As I've said in previous posts, I haven't won much on Listia lately partly due to just not feeling like it, and partly because the points have skyrocketed.  In over the year I've been on there, the points to cash ratio has rose from around 1000 points for $1 to now 6500 points for a $1.  I've been working on building up credits as opposed to spending them in case I find something really worth getting.  I still bid on stuff, but not as much as I did.

Anyways, here are some scans.






I'm not planning on getting every Otto Porter card, but this was a cheap sticker on Listia and I bid.  He is from Missouri and I believe I mentioned his high school team stomped our team one year at the state championships.  I think I was the only bidder so very much higher and I likely would have lost.

Not much to show, so here is the back of the sticker.


At least they put stuff on the back.  I always hated the stickers that had nothing on the back.  Sure if they are peeled, they are useless, but still have something on the back.


Since I still haven't finished all my sorting (I know its been a year now) of Royals cards, I am getting a little more cautious on what I bid on.  This one I was positive I didn't have so I bid.  I won it pretty cheap and it turns out I didn't have it.  I really don't have many Jermaine Dye cards as a Royal so I figured that was the case.


I really like the back of this card.  It reminds me of a newspaper and it includes stats, so I enjoy it.  I'm surprised with it being a S/N card it was so cheap.  I'll take it!

Last scan is multiple cards.


The Beltran card I also won cheap on Listia.  Sure he's not in a Royals uniform, but I have a semi-decent collection of Beltran cards, so one day I might go after more of his non-Royals stuff.  I don't have many Lineage cards (in fact this is only my second I think), so adding this was pretty easy.

The two Ryan Howard cards are ones I already had.  I was going through some cards and found them and kept them aside.  I flip a lot on if I want to make a full fledged collection of Ryan Howard cards, but these two are nice cards and since he went to Missouri State, he fits into my Bears collection.  The Bowman cards is a double sided card with another player on the back (I think Dominic Brown) and its a S/N card, so that made the decision easier.

That shall be all for this late night post.  I figured I would post since I already scanned them.  I hope to have another post or two before the year is up, if not, Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and Happy New Year.  Thanks for reading.

The yellow ASG jersey mixed with Ryan's Phillies gear makes him look like he works at McDonalds. Nice lot!

Pacific! I've been on a mission lately adding some harder to get stuff from Pacific. That Dye is a great card.

I hadn't noticed that but he does look like he could work the drive up window. I don't remember that color combination for the All Star Game, so I must have missed that year. I skipped a few in the 2000's.

I liked getting Pacific cards when I was younger. Nothing against Topps, but I always preferred the other brands more. I don't remember having any Private Stock though.
