13 Barry Larkin Rookie Cards For Just $0.99???  Oh, Yeah!!!

You better believe that I hooked myself up with this bargain…

I cannot believe that for just $0.99 nobody else wanted to drop a small bid on this one.

At the same time, I am thrilled that nobody else tried to get in the ring with me….

Baseball Card Show Purchase #3 – 2 New Rickey Henderson Cards

 These are the only cards I was able to find for my player collections.  The 1986 Donruss Rickey Henderson base card and the 1987 Donruss Opening Day card.  Both cards look great and I was able to pick them up for a combined price of $0.25!!! 

Gotta love those ‘Bargain Bins’!!!

1987 Donruss Highlights Andre Dawson

1987 Donruss Highlights Andre Dawson

 I scooped up this 2-card set for just $0.25.  I couldn’t resist.  Although it is not part of a base set of cards, these cards are important for the Andre Dawson collector as they highlight his amazing accomplishments from the 1987 baseball season

Highlight #1 – Andre Dawson is named Player of the Month in August of 2007

Highlight #2 – Andre Dawson sets the Chicago Cubs 1st year Home Run mark with 49 round-trippers

Dave Winfield 1987 Donruss Diamond King

There are certain players that look great in paintings.  The artists are able to carry over enough of the player’s facial features to make it appear that the painting is actually a photo.

In the case of Dave Winfield, the artist has not been able to do this, and the result is a terrible looking baseball card of one of the game’s great players…

1987 Andre Dawson – Topps, Fleer, and Donruss

1987 Andre Dawson – Topps, Fleer, and Donruss

What a sweet trio of cards!!!  I have just added all of these to my Andre Dawson collection.  These are Dawson’s last base cards from his days with the Montreal Expos. 

Of the 3 cards, the 1987 Fleer card really stands out.  I love the camera angle and the 3-D effect!!!

1987 Donruss Dave Winfield

(13) 1987 Donruss Dave Winfield

By my estimation, Winfield’s head takes up 57% of the square inches of this card.  Still, he is one of my all-time favorite players and this is another card I needed for my Winfield collection.
