It was kind of a varied mail day today but I like it. A couple more Tatis RCs showed up. I like the Factory set image variation as a sleeper RC of sorts. I managed to grab the Guerreros before he spiked but they took forever to get here. O'Neill is about the only Cardinal I don't have a stash of so I've been grabbing stuff here and there. I really like that Action Variation image.

As always I had to have something old school too. These are only 133 years old but I guess they'll have to do.

Those Allen and Ginter state cards are pretty cool...I looked for my state but the set slightly pre-dates Washington's statehood, ha.

A couple of cards for Thursday:

My first A's 2021 Postseason jersey pickup, still missing Matt Olson and Marcus Semien from the set. I fear that I cheaped out too much and missed the initial rush of listings, and these will not show up often going forward due to Topps running the presses on Series 1, making a /99 card a tough pull. Eh I'll eventually find them.

PC only day today. Gotta love finding a PC card you didn't even know existed until it popped up on eBay. I knew Helsley had a 2019 Memphis Redbirds but the 2018 wasn't on any checklist. The Heritage Black border is my 10th which gives me 20% of the print run if I remember the numbers correctly. Both Reyes RC autos are just because I like them and they were cheap. I'm a sucker for any of the Acetate cards and the Five Star design is one of my favorites. The auto on the Five Star looks terrible in the scan but it is actually pretty bold in hand.

Sweet, I'll have to put that one on my search list. The oldest baseball cards I own are T206's, so these seem very affordable by comparison especially being 20+ years older.

Some of the American West themed sets (American Indian Chiefs in particular) and the Pirates of the Spanish Main set have individual cards that break $100 regularly but for the most part it's an inexpensive vintage collection, especially for the age of them, if you don't mind the bumps and bruises that come with being 130+ years old. I'm happy with them as long as the color is solid and they're not egregiously miscut so I end up with most of my Ginter from that era for less than $10 a card. The lot of 9 above was $56 shipped.

The second I saw the Stewart '86 autograph out of 2021 Topps I knew I needed one. So now I have one. There are 6 A's in the set and ideally I'd like to get all of them, but this was the one that really stood out to me. The Zito is 16/50 and the Collins is out of the 1963 Bazooka set...not top condition but it'll do.
