Being a player collector is hard work. Being a player collector of players that are no longer active may be ever harder.
Luckily, I enjoy the challenge!!!
When it comes to obtaining cards for my player collections, I have been able to secure cards in a vast number of ways. Trades, baseball card shows, baseball card stores, and through Ebay auctions have been tools I have used to build my collections.
But the #1 way I have been able to build these up is through www.sportlots.com. This website has offered me a very affordable, organized, and easy way to find the cards I crave. While Ebay may be fancier with its hi-res images and powerful buying tools, I find most of the singles on Ebay to be over-priced. Sportlots.com offers a different and somewhat tougher shopping experience but the result is saving quite a bit of money while also finding cards in a more organized manner.
Here is my latest purchase from 3 different sellers on the site.
In this stack of 51 cards, I have been able to take some big bites into my current player collections. We have Eddies, Darryls, Palmers, Madduxs, and of course Dawsons!!
As a result of this purchase, I’ve got a bit of organizing to do as well as some player checklists to update.
If you haven’t checked out their site, I suggest logging onto www.sportlots.com to see the shopping experience that they offer. It’s not for everyone, but it certainly works for this player collector!!!
**Hat-tip tp Brad from Rickey Henderson Collectibles for advising me to check out this site as I was building my now completed Rickey Henderson collection. Thanks Brad!!!
