Why Didn’t I Think Of That Sooner???
You would be amazed at some of the searches terms that I have saved in ‘My Ebay’.
But, what this does for me is allow me to keep tabs on a plethora of newly-listed items across Ebay while not making me seek them out myself. The saved search is a fantastic tool – one this collector could not collect without!!
And the other day, I caught something in one of my searches that struck me.
And it gave me some instant hope that I can quickly, and easily, add a few more cards to my Andre Dawson player collection as I get closer to 1,000 unique cards.
The ad was for ‘1981 Topps Montreal Expos Team Set w/Dawson Carter Raines’. But, it was the image that captured me and immediately got my mind racing…
The image was for the team card of the Expos from that 1981 Topps set.
THE TEAM CARD!!!!
Why didn’t I think of that sooner???
I have no team cards in my Dawson collection, but he is sure to be featured on them – so they do qualify.
A quick search lands me with 5 more opportunities to bring home some new Andre Dawson stuff – 1977 Topps, 1978 Topps, 1979 Topps, 1980 Topps, and 1981 Topps.
Time to start hunting!!!
Amazingly, I have added Chicago Cubs team cards to bulk up my Billy Williams collection, but for Dawson, it never crossed my mind. I was so consumed with keeping up with the modern issues, that I took a break from looking back at vintage stuff!!
Let the games begin!!!
Thanks for reading.
