Rangers from ARPSmith's Sportscard Obsession

Less than a week ago, Adam of ARPSmith's Sportscard Obsession posted that he needed some sorting space and would send team lots to collectors that claimed a particular team.  There are no strings attached, but of course I will send him some cards back.  The only problem is that he sent WAY more than I ever expected and I'm going to need to pick up some cards for him! 

I got back to my desk yesterday after a couple of meetings and there was a HEAVY priority mail box on my desk.  I had no idea what it was, even after looking at the address.  As soon as I pulled the first team bag out, I realized what all was in the box.  WOW!

That pic doesn't do the cards justice.  Here's another pic that shows how tall the stacks are. 

The cards range from the late 1970s through last season.  Just about every notable Ranger of the last 30 years was in there.  Some of the names were Nolan Ryan, Alex Rodriguez, Ivan Rodriguez, Mark Texiera, Will Clark, Cole Hamels and Yu Darvish.  Not all the cards were mainstream, there were plenty of oddballs in there.  I had no idea what to expect, but I definitely didn't expect this! 

I will have a first package out for you soon, Adam.  Then, I will have to find some more things and get out a second one.  I might not be at a card show for a few months, though.  Thank you! 

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 $150 in a year (including $15 back on one Black Friday purchase last week).  FREE CARDS!

If you're on Twitter, please give me a follow.  You can also find me on Trading Card Database.  I love trading cards, when it makes sense.  Happy collecting!


  1. ARPSmith's donation to my Cubs collection was on point. Like you, I'll be sending something back for sure. So much good stuff!

    1. I kinda makes me want to claim the Indians lot he still has. That was my team when I followed baseball and I guess if I have a team anymore, it's them as much as the Rangers.

  2. Glad you liked them! Someone else put in a claim for the Indians but we haven't sealed the deal yet. If it falls through I will let you know.

    1. Absolutely! I would get a kick out of memory lane on that one.
