Jeff here, as you already know Dennis got us some tickets to last weeks game and we had a blast. A little close for comfort but definitely makes it a great game. Some great defensive stops at the end to prevent us from having heart attacks. Between being up in Ann Arbor and hanging with all the maize and blue faithful and getting a glimpse of Dennis’ huge collection has gotten me off my ass and finally gotten around to posting my cheap Ebay pick-ups from last month.
This was a 13 card lot that I picked up for $3.50/shipped. I already had 1 card so it ended up being a 12 card lot which puts it at $.29 per card. Mostly newer cards with a Desmond Howard card thrown in there. A great lot for me, 12 cards, all Wolverine jersey’s featured and $.29 a card. How could I turn that down?
Marlin Jackson – 2005 Sage Hit Autograph ($2.29)
Marlin Jackson – 2005 Topps Draft Picks & Prospects Senior Standouts jersey ($2.29)
I got these 2 and the following 2 all from the same seller and took advantage of his shipping costs. I also picked up a few cards for Dennis which I took to him last weekend. Marlin Jackson has always been a favorite Wolverine and one who has also played for the Colts. I was really getting into Michigan football again when he was playing so he was one of those guys I’ve followed for awhile.
Marquise Walker – 2002 Topps Debut Senior Bowl Jersey ($2.29)
Victor Hobson – 2003 Topps All American Fabric of America Jersey ($2.29)
A couple of Senior Bowl pictures but they still have the famous winged helmet’s on so I went for it. Plus all of them qualify for the $3 and under rule that I use when do my cheap pick-ups. Like I said above, I got all 4 of those from the same seller at $2.49 for shipping. I picked up 7 cards from him (3 went to Dennis) with that shipping cost.
Alan Branch – 2007 Press Pass Gridiron Graphs autograph ($2.37)
Bennie Joppru – 2003 Topps All American Fabric of America jersey ($2.49)
The Alan Branch auto I picked up for $1.62 with $.75/shipping. The Bennie Joppru I picked up with free shipping (along with another card for Dennis). You can’t talk about Alan Branch without showing the following photo. I know it’s a favorite of both Dennis and I.
These are the Michigan cards I’ve added to the Michigan Collection, if I kept better count, I could tell you how many cards I have but Dennis is way more organized than I am. Maybe I should do that sometime. Don’t wait for me on that though. It’s taken me a month just to get these posted.
