I got home today from our trip and checked the mailboxes per usual. Unfortunately there were no new TTM returns, but another one of my “buy a bunch of cheap cards from the same seller on eBay” packages arrived.
Most of what I bought this time were 70’s and 80’s O-Pee-Chee Astros cards, which were brought to my attention when this lovely ’82 OPC J. R. Richard popped up in one of my saved searches.
Unfortunately I missed out on several of the cards I was eyeing – a few due to poor timing as I was out at a bar with friends when the auction alerts began to hit my phone – and a few due to prior bids. I think I may have paid about fifty cents for this Richard, and nothing else was any more than a quarter.
I won’t bore you with a dozen vintage OPC Astros, but I’ll share the other cards I came across while splurging.
This Catfish Hunter popped out pretty quickly, and though I think I already picked up this ’81 Trammell in my big vintage box, I grabbed it for less than two dimes in hopes of mailing it off for an autograph.
