Can't beat the price

I picked up some free baseball cards from a guy on Craigslist yesterday. The guy had bought a bunch of junk-wax era and 2018 packs on a nostalgia kick, kept some Orioles he wanted and was giving away the rest.

There were about 200 2018 base cards which is great because I need most of the set. Topps collation being what it is, there are lots of duplicate and triplicate copies, so anyone else building this set, I'll have plenty to trade.
 Some inserts, too. The top three are all shiny. There are two Topps Salute card, both of JP Crawford. One is numbered S-62 and one is numbered TS-76. Way to keep things confusing, Topps.

The junk wax cards were packs he ripped from: 1990 Bowman; 1988 Donruss; 1990 Donruss; 1991 Donruss; 1992 Donruss; 1989 Fleer; 1990 Fleer; 1991 Fleer; 1993 Leaf; 1991 OPC Premier; 1992 OPC Premier; 1990 Score; 1991 Score; 1992 Score; 1992 Stadium Club; 1993 Stadium Club; 1992 Studio; 1988 Topps; 1989 Topps; 1991 Topps; 1991 Ultra; 1990 UD; 1992 UD; 1993 UD. If anyone is working on any of those sets I've now got several hundred in pack-fresh condition to trade. There are some star cards; the best are probably Barry Bonds and Nolan Ryan in '92 Stadium Club.

 I had already completed all of those sets except the '92 OPC set, and didn't get any new ones in the one pack's worth he had. I did get four new cards I needed though, from Bowman and Donruss inserts:
 I haven't checked yet, but hopefully I'll need some or all of these as well.


  1. I really love the 1992 Donruss Diamond Kings insert set.

  2. Can't beat free! I'm looking for some variations from 1990 UD. Email at QAPLAGCA at yahoo

  3. Can't beat that. Great looking Baines card but all those packs had to be fun.

  4. Oooh. I may need some Dodgers if you have 'em. I'll take a look to see what I need and reach out.
