ebay buys

Recently I was looking at baseball cards on ebay.  I came across a 1985 Topps Circle K Home Run Kings card of Lee May.  The bid on the card was at a penny, shipping included.
I liked the card so I figured I make a offer.  I upped the bid to six cents and then ended up winning the auction.  I have added the card to my Lee May collection.
So I figured I'd look on ebay and bid 25 cents for any card, with shipping included, if I felt that I would buy that card if I found it in a quarter box. 
So here are some of the cards I won.
1991 Sportflics 3D Kellogg's Corn Flakes Baseball Greats Ralph Kiner (Card #15, 24 cents).
I have a few of these Kellogg's Corn Flakes Baseball Greats and add this Kiner card to my collection.
2015 Topps Gold Brandon Crawford  (Numbered 1250 of 2015, Card #159, 22 cents)
I liked this 2015 Topps Brandon Crawford numbered gold card.  Crawford was an all-star, Gold Glove, and Silver Slugger shortstop with the Giants last year.
2016 Panini Donruss Optic Diamond Kings Billy Burns (Card #20, 21 cents)
Billy Burns had a good rookie season for the A's last year, when he finished the season with 26 stolen bases, a total which tied him for third in the American League .  However, he struggled with the team early this season and was optioned to the minors in July and then was sent to the Royals in a trading deadline deal.  As Panini is unable to show team insignias, this card reminded me of the Topps 1968 set, the season the A's moved from Kansas City to Oakland, as some cards in that set blacked the KC lettering on player's caps.
Topps 1968 Jack Aker Card #224 
(This card always made me think that Aker was pitching in the yard of my childhood home)
Topps 1968 John Donaldson Card #244

Topps 1968 Dave Duncan Card #261   
1999 Upper Deck Challengers for 70 Mark in History Mark McGwire (Card #M9, 22 cents)
I added this Mark McGwire Mark In History card with eight other cards from the set that I had picked out of dime box at a card show earlier this spring.

2007 Topps 52 Chrome Joba Chamberlain (Card #TCRC95, 25 cents)
Although Chamberlain never lived up to the hype he garnered when he first came to the majors with the Yankees, I still nabbed this card for a quarter.
2005 Upper Deck Bound For Glory Albert Pujols (Card #451, 15 cents)
This card is from 2005, when Pujols won the first of his three Most Valuable Player awards while he played with the Cardinals.  Pujols' next home run will be his 583, which will tie him with Mark McGwire for tenth on the all-time career home run list.  
2016 Stadium Club Greg Maddux (Card #122, 23 cents)
This 2016 Stadium Club Greg Maddux joins another former Braves' Hall of Famer hurler, Phil Niekro, as part of my collection of Stadium Cards from this year. 

1999 Upper Deck Decade Dominators Roberto Alomar (Card #X3, 10 cents)
2006 Bowman Chrome Howie Kendrick (Card #BDP40, 15 cents)
2009 Topps Ticket To Stardom Dustin Pedroia (Card #118, 10 cents) 
These cards are of second basemen including Hall of Famer Roberto Alomar, Howie Kendrick, who is currently playing for the Dodgers, and Red Sox 2008 Most Valuable Player, Dustin Pedroia.
I was able to snag these 11 cards for less than two bucks.
