Sportlots and ebay

I took the plunge and signed up for a account and promptly completed the '88 Score set... at least when the cards get here.  I'm still gonna work on the '87 Topps set through trades until I run out of all options.  Right around $5 shipped finished off Score for me.

Then I decided to take a look at ebay, and picked up '88 Score Young Superstars I and II.  I've never actually seen these cards before, so they should be a nice addition to the set.  They were included in rack packs, and I don't recall ever buying a rack pack.  So when those get here, we're gonna take a look at each card.  Price was $7.95 shipped, more than I'd like to have spent but hey, gotta treat yourself every now and then.

I was surprised that before these cards, the last time I purchased something on ebay was 2005.

Hey, I am getting back into blogging and I was going to start with 88 Score Traded & Rookies--but I don't want to step on your toes. Is that OK with you?

woohoo! Go for it. I'll be looking forward to it :). Send me a link when you get it going.

I can't seem to get my hands on a traded set... well, at least not cheaply. Like I said in the post, when those Young Superstars come, I'll go through them card by card. Should be fun.

Good luck with your new project.
