Baseball Card Yard Sale Find Part 11: 1996 Upper Deck

Well, here is another post to what will be many posts of me breaking down what I got at a Yard Sale that I posted about recently. Today's post is on a small box of 1996 Upper Deck.

Ruben Rivera was the best Star Rookie of the group. I at one point owned the Cal Ripken Jr 2131 subset card celebrating his game streak, but traded it. Glad to have it back again!


A Jeter for the PC!

Another Jr!!!! #419


And to finish it off I had to show this card. Not just because he is a Yankee, but because of the unique photography. Its a slow motion pic showing his complete swing and follow through.
Overall, not many finds, but some good ones .I will definitely have a few cards for the PC in the big picture not just from the ones I showed. I try to limit the pictures to the best cards from each lot I show. These were the best of the group, but there was roughly another 75 1996 Upper Deck cards with a mix of players and teams including Yankees and rookies.

There is still more yard sale finds to come! Keep coming back for more!

Winner Of September Contest Week 2

Entries for this week were down again. So, I have decided because of this, that for the month of September, I will be giving away random insert cards to our 2nd and 3rd place winners. It will be a lot of 5 cards or so.

Now onto the winner. For an unbelievable 4th time in this contest and third month in a row, I  also think he needs to buy a lotto ticket, Scott N. takes home the win! He was the only one to choose Baltimore and 5 runs. Scott, please email me at sportcardcollectors@hotmail.com with your address. Also come back after this final weeks contest to pick your prize when the winner is announced.

There is good news out of this winner announcement, since Scott is already in the Winner's Circle, that once again leaves a spot open for a random person to make it in. So make sure you enter every time to earn a shot in if you don't have one!

One more week to go in this months contest. It has already been posted and ready for entries. This is your LAST CHANCE to earn a spot in October's Grand Finale and bigger prize from BCW that I know nothing about. It's SUPER SECRET so please make sure to enter to earn your chance!

Thanks to everyone who entered and good luck in this final week!

September Contest...FINAL WEEK, FINAL CHANCE FOR OCT!

With the lack of entries for the August Contest, I am not sure on what I am giving away yet for this month due to those lack of entries. If we can average 30 a week, prizes will be much better. We drop below that, they will be average. Good Luck to those who enter! The best way to build entries is to spread the word through RT's, Shares and just be word of social media. Thanks!

WELCOME! This is the first week of our September Contest. Now, compared to monthly contests in the past, this one is different. Instead of picking different winners daily, earning points, having the top three in points win prizes you only need to do this one entry where there will be one winner at the end of this week. This contest will run for three weeks and there will be a total of three winners. Once you have won for this month, you cannot win again as we want to spread the prize love around. Also, once you have won for the month, you will go into the WINNERS CIRCLE where you will not only be randomed to pick a prize for the month (all three names will be randomed and the person at the top of the list from the random picks their prize then so on), but will get a guaranteed spot in October's Monthly Contest. That is the ONLY way to be able to enter October's Contest. which has three prizes including a GRAND PRIZE from BCW Supplies.

This months prizes in the Prize Pot are:

Prizes from Sport Card Collectors:2nd and 3rd place prizes will be a lot of 5 random inserts from random sports.


Prize from BCW Supplies:

Baseball Card Yard Sale Find Part 10: Some Rookies, Some Inserts

Well, here is another post to what will be many posts of me breaking down what I got at a Yard Sale that I posted about recently. Today's post consisted of a mixed box of rookies and a few inserts.

I thought this was a pretty cool find. Great photograph and nice design.

More random rookies/prospect cards. Nothing too big:



I wonder which ones of the 45,000 I got if I have two of each.....
Cool Burnett!

Some good players found in this group including Jimmy Rollins. I hadn't heard of Fleer Futures before. The gray part has like a glitter/counter-top feel and look to it.

A few inserts mixed in with the rookies..

Topps has always liked GOOOOOLLLLDDDDD

These were pretty cool!!
 

Overall, some good finds. The inserts were better than the rookie finds I think. I didn't showcase all of the rookies either. This was a 800ct box full of rookie cards,other than the inserts I showed, but I only posted the ones I knew of. The rest were no-namers. 

Another Baseball Card Yard Sale Find post coming up soon!
