This has been a strange year for me. I've been doing a lot of re-evaluating, in my life and in my card collection. I'm continuing to sell higher-value cards on eBay while chipping away at lower-end set builds.
This Rhys Hoskins Players Weekend Variation cost $1.86 on eBay. It's
about twice as much as I'd hoped to pay, but none of the online
retailers I frequent had this card and I gave up on trying to trade for
it. ~$2 is a small price to pay to complete the master set of 2018 Topps
Big League (except for the ten "error" SSPs.)
Sirius Sportscards has some very nice vintage singles at affordable prices. These two NM singles complete the Dodgers and Padres All-Time Teams, respectively. With free shipping the total was just $6 + tax, or roughly the amount of eBay bucks I earned in the 1st quarter of 2021.
I picked up a half dozen football set fillers on Sportlots, using direct shipping. This lot cost just $2.93 after applying my store credit and a tiny amount of loot.
In total these nine cards cost just over $5 out of pocket - or just over $11 total. Some other purchases have arrived, and more are on the way. I'm not sure if I'll discuss them all. I've been in a wistful mood lately and the hobby hasn't inspired me to write nearly as much as it used to. My mind is ..somewhere else.
Thanks for reading and have a great weekend!
