I recently went through Sportlots and got a few needs crossed off the old wantlist for a cheap price. I figured I’d scan a few of these to show them off. With Sportlots, the goal is to find a seller who has a grouping of cards you need at a cheap price – just 2, 3 or even 5 cards at a good price isn’t worth it shipping-wise.
From the first seller I got quite a few older inserts – but the key was a bunch of 1991 Topps Glossy All-Star cards for 18 cents apiece. 27-game winner Bob Welch and the third baseman from the team that swept his were included. Here’s a few of the cards from that “sport lot”.
The next seller I got a few more old Topps insert cards from my wantlist.
I also got a good deal on a few cards from “future wantlists” of mine.
From the third seller, I got one more ’91 Topps Glossy, and a bunch of more recent inserts. I actually finished the last three cards of the set “When They Were Young” from 2010. I really like the Tigers Diamond Duos card given the 2012 season – it’s now the two Tigers Triple Crown Winners!
From the last seller, I got a few needs from retro sets. These were the last two Heritage Minor League cards I needed – so that will be a completed set post sometime in the future.
