A Robin Yount collector from Oregon has been selling off parts of his Yount collection on eBay recently. It takes everything I have in me not to bid on everything and try to win everything. I won a pretty good number of items, though I did not get any of the "White Whale" relics. Those relics rocketed past $150 each, so I didn't go there. But, here are some of my wins from those Yount auctions:
|1979 Hostess L-shaped Panel|
|1975 Hostess Panel|
|1976 Holiday Inn MSA Disc|
|1991 Cadaco Disc|
|1994 Ameritech Calling Card given out at the game at which Yount's jersey was retired in 1994, |
Serial numbered 40614 of 63000 (see, it's rare!!)
|2004 Topps Relic|
|2004 Leaf Certified Materials Fabric of the Game FG-100, numbered 20/29|
|2001 Topps Hit Parade Relic|
|2003 Leaf /Donruss Trademark Threads, numbered 11/19|
|1992 ACE Novelty Pin (hey, it was $1!)|
Two more items -- and yes, I told you, I spent too much money on eBay lately!
First, this is one I hinted at yesterday. It's a set issued by McDonald's in 1970, though it does not have a McDonald's logo on it. I was able to buy four of the six uncut sheets in the set, so now I'm on the lookout for the other two sheets.
Here's one of the sheets. It's a little bigger than my scanner can handle, so please excuse the cutoff photos.
Finally, I purchased the complete set of 1976 photos of the Brewers team that the A&P grocery store issued. Here are the two major stars in the set: Robin Yount and Hank Aaron.
I also bought several boxes of unopened cards -- one off eBay of the Series 2 1991 Stadium Club and the remainder from DA Card World. Oh, and then there were the mass of unopened packs and the repacks that my wife insisted I buy when we went to Target this past week -- she insisted I buy them because she wanted me to have plenty of work in sorting and opening so that I wouldn't buy any more!
It worked -- I've only "bought" one thing since then, and I got it using credit from selling on eBay.
