The $5 Challenge: Cards 4 & 5

We've got a pair of old O-Pee-Chees to add to the pile today. Still not hitting the price point that I'd like, but I'm hangin' in there.

Card #4: '75 O-Pee-Chee Bill Buckner. I collect Bill's cards these days, and I have almost no OPC from the '70s, so this was a nice pickup.
Total cost including shipping: $.47
Remaining funds: $2.23

Card #5: '81 O-Pee-Chee Andre Dawson. Not only is this *the* Andre Dawson card (I had him sign my Topps version of this), but it's an OPC Expos card from before the time when you got flooded out by them if you bought OPC. It's either a bad scan or not the best cut, but screw it.
 Total cost including shipping: $.30
Remaining funds: $1.93

Remaining time: 19 days

Getting a little tight over here, but I should be able to pick up a few solid cards at around 38-39 cents per card (which is what these averaged out to, and what I've got budgeted for the rest of the "month", moving forward. If I luck into a few cheapies, my budget gets even better.


  1. So you are the one that sniped me on that Buckner. I love it!!!

    Nothing I really had to have or anything just a random bargain bid actually.
