That being said, there is a certain logic to what I buy. Or at least I hope there is
Brooks is strictly PC. I now have something like 8 of his regular playing days base cards, which is starting to look like something. That 68 card is in pretty bad shape, but then again it cost me $2 (and $3 for the other).
I love that 1960 set, so whenever I can add some cards for cheap, I jump on the opportunity. This time, I was mainly after that Aparicio card, and I'm glad I landed it (not that Aparicio cards are tough to get, he isn't exactly wildly collected). I got the Curt Flood more for his place in baseball history and labor disputes than for his 7 Gold Gloves, ironically.
I got the other two because of the one at the center, the Scott Rolen auto. Still a great looking set though, despite those horrible Angels colors.
I just like Fan Favorites autos. And had no idea who Lenny Harris was.
Another favorite set of mine, that I only read about recently (probably on Gavin's blog). I saw that Dave Stieb was on the checklist, so I hurried and acquired the one that was up for auction. I paid $10 shipped for the two cards.
Now those are even more logical. Delgado is on plenty of this year's checklists, so that makes me happy. Five Star is a pretty cool set too.
Another Vernon Wells auto (woohoo), this time on a sweet-spot like card.
So there you go ! Just me showing off random logical cards. And now thanks to me you all have that Supertramp song in your heads. You're welcome
