$25 A Week Challenge Week 15:Mix Of Things

This is the first $25 A Week Challenge in some time as I had to put a delay on this segment. With my wife's gifts bought and myself finally focused on finishing up some projects, I didn't really have time or patience to dilly dally into other stuff instead.

I am not sure how often posts from this series will appear anymore due to the fact I am focused on accomplishing some things, but they will appear whenever I have them ready to.

So for today, this is an undercut version of the segment as I didn't come close to spending $25 but at least there is some cool stuff to see.
Like this Daniel Jones Rookie Wave. I really loved the design on this so I had to make sure I locked up a Jones. Especially since it was only $1.26 and .99

Okay, so I loved these Holiday Match Up cards. I landed the Kerry Collins one awhile back and since then always on the lookout for more. When I saw these three up for auction for $1, I jumped and was the ONLY BIDDER. I won all three for $1 plus .75 shipping. That's crazy.

While I was bidding away on RJ Barrett cards and lots, I found this lot that had Barrett in it along with some other Knicks. Price, well, $3.99 plus $3.49 shipping. I couldn't say no.
Ewing, one of my favorite Knicks all time green Prizm

Dennis Smith Jr Optic rookie

Ewing Jersey card!! Love it!

And this guy lol.

Pretty solid lot overall. I already showed the Barretts in my RJ posts.

Up next and final, 2 1998 UD3 packs. I will be busting one of these two packs to show off the contents on here at some point.
Grabbed these two packs with a shot at getting a Peyton Manning for $3 plus $3.99 shipping.

This weeks grand total, $18.47. So under the $25 mark but some great pickups.

So now I pass this onto you, what would have you spent $25 on this week.

Also check this out....


  1. The Ewing cards are sweet.

    The Jones card looks he's standing in a desert with a weirdly oblong rock floating in the air behind him. I like more liquidity in my waves.

  2. The Holiday Matchup cards are great, I got the Favre/King at a card show right before Christmas. Hope there's something nice in your UD3 packs!

    I do have a $25 or less purchase in mind, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. When I do (and when it's in hand) I'll be sure to link to your series.

  3. Can't wait to see if you pull a Manning. I'd look for some Hoops Legends of the Ball inserts. Also some PC guys I need to work on. Good cards and post.

  4. Looking forward to seeing if you pull a Manning.

    P.S. Added your new blog. I totally remember having my students use those webs when I taught 5th and 6th grade.

    1. Thanks! I was hoping someone could relate!

  5. This week's purchase was a signed Sammy Baugh check and picture matted total was $18.02 with Virus all I did last week! Hey when you rip the pack can I get the UD3 wrapper I spy Danny Marino on it....... Stay Safe have a great week.

    1. I believe I held onto it so absolutely if I did!

  6. I don't care about Peyton, but I sure am looking forward to seeing what else might be in that pack!

    1. Should be posting soon as I am running out of things to post lol
