Yard Sale Find: # 14

We recently posted about a Yard Sale we went to and picked up a bunch of sports cards at (mostly baseball). We thought it would be fun to take you on the journey with us to discover what is inside of every box, every single we got picking out the best ones along the way to show. We hope you enjoy the trip and comments are always welcomed.

 
Looks like Raghib Ismail had some fun back in the day along with Brien Taylor (I know you guys who loaded up on his rookies are shuttering with that name) and Russell Maryland.

 

 
A ton of these were found. Most average a value of $1. Jeff Bagwell comes in as most valuable at $3.

 

 

These were interesting....

 

A card set I didn't know about or have any of..now I do. I was at one point a HUGE Clemens fan..then came the steroid accusations....

 

 

Since I found these in the middle of the box, thought I would post them about in the middle. Not much in terms of big names here, but I like old school football. Years range in the 70's.

 
A lot of Baseball Heroes and Classic Baseball finds.

 
My man! KGJR! 

 
I thought this card was pretty cool. I know Pro Cards aren't usually worth diddly,  But I like finding cards of players at the beginning of their careers.

 
I don't know who this person was trying to sell this card to but wow. Big price difference now.

 
I like older Marvel card finds.

 
Complete set!

 
You just gotta love what Upper Deck brought to baseball cards. Especially the photography. One thing I have found out from this Yard Sale find is how popular Upper Deck baseball cards were for this person. And I can't argue with that. I used to collect mainly them as well. If only we can go back in time and change the licensing agreements.


 
These are not at all worth $4.50 each. Prices for these must have been worth more back then. You are lucky to get $4.50 for all of them. However, I must note, I have always been a fan of Gwynns. He never got much spotlight for being the incredible hitter he was. Playing in San Diego probably didn't help.

I really like this card. And the full set is here as well. Frank Thomas was one of the greats.


I wish companies, especially Upper Deck, would dig back into holograms.They are just fun.

Complete sets of each. From what I read about these, cause I hadn't heard of them, they were produced in the 80's and 90's and had action shots, full bleed color photos but no true licensing by a real company. I guess they somewhat flooded the market back then. They also have blank backs.

 
Interesting to see this guy in a Soccer set.


 
Anyone want a Canseco base for $10? Or how about a Deion Sanders for $10? Both have a BV of $1



 

Overall, not bad finds here. Some interesting ones buried within. Such as the football cards and Marvel ones. I like the small insert sets and the Frank Thomas set is probably my favorite of the group. And of course the Griffey Jr's and 90's inserts are nice additions as well.

It did crack me up to see the prices this person must have tried to sell or maybe they bought them for the at one point. Cause now-a-days, you probably can't even get a 10th of that value.

Let us know what you think on this find.

Player Of The Day Canadian Contest Winners Announced!

The turnout for this contest was very disappointing as only 3 participated. So all this means is that finding two winners wasn't that hard. Thanks goes out to the three who participated in this part of the promotion and we appreciate your hard work.

The final day of this contest was crazy as we had the most entries we had the entire contest! A HUGE comeback for Dpan who started yesterday with 2 points and ends up coming back for the win!

1st Place goes out to:Dpan
2nd Place goes out to:  mrblu1976

Here were the final standings:
Dpan                  30 points
mrblu1976          24 points
blair burnside      22  points 

Dpan, we need you to pick out which two redemption cards you would like the codes off from. You can email us at sportcardcollectors@hotmail.com or contact us via Twitter with them once your selection is made and we will get those codes to you. Here are your choices again:

**  Ed Davis is a young up and coming player who currently plays for the Memphis Grizzlies an up and coming team. This card is also signed on White Canvas from the high end basketball product Elite Series**

** Terry Porter was drafted 24th by the Portland Trail Blazers in the 1985 NBA Draft where he went on to play ten seasons making two All-Star Game appearances. Porter spent 17 years in league as a player. Not much after retiring in 2002, he jumped into coaching and has been head coach twice, first with Milwaukee Bucks and then with the Phoenix Sun. He is now an assistant with the Minnesota Timberwolves. Due to him being in the Elusive Ink set, you won't find too many of his autographs out on the market. Here is your chance to own it!**

**And a redemption card for a Jordan Reed Momentum Football Rookie Signature 2013. Reed has looked great so far with the Washington Redskins as a TE. He was selected in the third round of this years draft. Some of his cards, especially autographs, are starting to see up arrows on the market**

After your selection is made Dpan, the remaining card goes to Mrblu1976. Mrblu1976 you can email us and we will give you the remaining redemption code.

Congrats to our two winners and thanks to those who participated!

Dual Prime Jersey Card Mail Day From Jammin JDcards

The one thing about working with great people here at Sport Card Collectors, is being able to search their sites for items you are looking for. Such goes for BCW Supplies, Panini America, The Pack Gambler and what this post is about Jammin JDcards. They may also give you a heads up about something beforehand you may be looking for or something they know you like.

So searching Jammin JDcards I knew I wanted some Giants cards. I particularly wanted something David Wilson. Despite a down year when it was expected to be huge, I still have faith that next year will be a turning point for him when healthy.

That's when this card popped up and I knew I had to have it:

This card not only features some pretty sweet swatches and David Wilson, but also Doug Martin who is a star in Tampa. So its a big double bonus!

 
Speaking of double bonus, to my surprise was these cards that Jammin JDcards threw in for free. And my first Brandon Myers Giants card. Thanks for that!

Overall, this was a pretty sweet mail day addition to the collection. If there is something you are searching for or feel is missing from your collection, I recommend you turn to Jammin JDcards first. You can locate their site HERE.Or in many places on our blog.

As always thoughts are welcomed on our mail day!

Sport Card Collectors Panini Player Of The Day Scavenger Hunt Contest

The following gallery is of the 2013 Player Of The Day base card set, autographs and memorabilia cards from the promo.

However, we wanted to play the great Tracy Hackler game "Scavenger Hunt". The difference is with our contest is that we didn't hide an image, though we did mess with three of them. Your challenge, if you choose to accept, is to tell us which THREE images we messed with and what we changed about them. You can find the real galleries over at Panini's blog the Knights Lance HERE and HERE that might be able to help you figure out the differences.Cause to make this even more challenging, you CANNOT click onto each image to enlarge them :) However, with our not so great Photoshopping it should be easy for most of you to enter :) Make sure you look REAL closely at all of the pictures!
