Back when showcasing my Buster Posey rookie cards, I mentioned that two of those cards (the National Chicle and Bowman Chrome Draft) cards came as part of a much larger lot of cards. I ran across a seller on Sports Card Forum that had tons of card listed for sale. He had them grouped in buckets like 4 for $1, 2 for $1, etc. At first I noticed quite a few Barry Bonds cards at very reasonable prices then noticed the two Posey rookies I needed. I decided to go through the entire list and see what I needed.
In the end I needed 55 of the cards which based on the sellers prices came to about $60 plus some shipping. I dropped him a quick note asking his best price (it never hurts to ask even if the prices are good) and he came back at $50 delivered. I jumped at the deal.
I was going to show the highlights in addition to the Buster cards but decide to scan almost all of them. I will add a little commentary but primarily let the cards do the talking. I think that even if you aren't a Giants fan, you will have to appreicate the diversity of the cards and the deal I got. I think the "book value" of the top 4 or 5 cards get to the $50 mark with several cards at $10 or more.
Without futher ado, here a bunch of Barry Bonds cards:
Next up are quite a few serial numbered cards:
Six more serial numbered cards, actually it is 5 serial numbered and one vintage card stamped with a 50th Anniversary stamp. The lowest serial number here is Aurilia Stat line at 235/283 and the highes is the Kurt Ainsworth 1033/1500.
Here are some misc cards:
I saved my favorite two cards for the end. First is this Barry Bonds insert, I will show the front and back:
Finally, my only "hit" that I picked up. It too is a Bonds card but this time Bobby Bonds.
Hope you enjoyed the cards, I am very happy with the deal I scored!
