Sportlots Mail - #1 of 11

If you follow me on Twitter, you might have seen that I finally had time to restart and finish cataloging my Russ Davis player collection.  As soon as finished that and posting my need list, I started looking to fill holes in the collection.  I started with Sportlots and places a significant order.  There are cards coming from 11 different sellers.  I spent a lot of time on the order, weighing cards costs against shipping so that I could get the most for my money.

I placed the order Sunday evening and by Wednesday this one had made it from Puerto Rico.  I paid $0.58 for the cards and $1 shipping.

1998 Topps Inaugural Devil Rays #202 Russ Davis

There weren't any copies of this on COMC.  There was another seller on Sportlots that also had it, but there were no other copies of the card below on Sportlots, so I elected to pick them both up from one seller.

1998 Topps Inaugural Diamondbacks #202 Russ Davis
This was the only copy available on Sportlots and the only copy on COMC has a $1.74 asking price.  No complaints from me on spending $0.79 each on these two cards.

Adding these two has me currently sitting at 196 of 309 (63.4%).  There are more on the way!  

If you shop online and haven't signed up and used ebates yet, you're missing out.  I also use it on eBay to get money back from purchases there.  Between referrals and cash back, I've gotten over $100 in about seven months.  FREE CARDS!  If you're on Twitter, please give me a follow.  Happy collecting!


  1. I think I must have missed the story on why you collect Russ Davis. That is awesome that you have more than half of his releases.

  2. You just gave me a great idea for a series of posts..."Why I collect _____."

    You are awesome!
