Recent Sportlots Pick Ups

Since there hasn't been much new product that really wows us around here, we haven't been buying many packs. Instead, we'll occasionally go online to pick some singles, that way we aren't wasn't any hard earned money on stuff we don't want anyway. I really like Sportlots. They've got a great selection and usually are pretty cheap. If you can manage to get a bunch of cards from one seller at a time, the shipping is usually very fair as well. It's a little bit of a pain searching the site, but once you get used to it, it's not so bad. It used to bother me that you can't see the cards ahead of time, but now I actually like the surprise once they come in the mail. It's kinda like opening packs after all. Here's what we got this time.

A couple Kung Fu Panda Bowmans.

Some unauthorized UD Signature Stars.

A few Unique Unis from Topps Unique. I don't think this set went over too well last year. I didn't mind the base cards though they weren't all that unique. I like these for the throwback unis, but the design sucks. I would have rather they just shown the whole photo instead of cropping the player.

A couple more Unique inserts. We needed these for our player collections, though the design is somewhat ho-hum.

Triple Threads is a product I would never purchase except for singles. Way to pricey and I can't stand the cut out relic cards that spell everything under the sun whether it makes any sense or not. I don't even really like this card all that much, but it's a Kinsler I didn't have so what the heck!

Finally, we've got a couple of Tributes. Another set I could begin to afford but I had to pick up a few anyway. Most teams only have 1 or 2 current players on the checklist in this set, so I had to pick up the Hamilton to represent the home team at least. These are pretty nice cards in person, but way too pricey if you buy them by the pack. This is a much better way to get them in my opinion. So there you go for now. Wow, two posts in two days! I'm back on a roll. Later.


  1. I loves me some Sportlots. You have to do a little research to get the most out of your money there, but once you find that seller that has all the stuff you're looking for, it's totally worth it.

  2. I couldn't agree more about Sportlots. I'm waiting for about 8 orders to show up now.
    Only thing that burns is reaching a shipping plateau with one vendor & then finding another card you need that only that vendor has or trying to juggle with other vendors in your cart! Love those vendors that have free shipping at the 50 or 100 card level.
