This is what $10 will buy you these days! Two 47 yr old baseball cards of Hall Of Famers. As a young collector these are the kind of cards I could only dream of owning, now 20 years later I can pick them up for a little more than a super sized meal at McDonalds. Beckett puts a value of $60 for the Snider and $40 for the Spahn. I think I got the Snider for $2.75 and the Spahn for $4.75 and $2.50 for shipping. These are obviously not in the mintiest of conditions but I am not overly concerned with that. When I’m buying 47 year old pieces of cardboard I kinda want them to look like 47 year old pieces of cardboard. It adds a bit of personality to the cards.
In other news, due to a nightmare of a cold/flu/I don’t know what the hell hit me, I have a lot of catching up to do. I have received a couple of trade packages, including one while I was typing this. They both deserve their own posts. I also plan on doing some site maintenance and some updated want and need lists soon. Hopefully I can get this all done before Spring Training is in full swing otherwise it will all be delayed once more. Stay tuned……..
