I started my search by trying to find autos of Cardinals players I needed that cost less than $3.
I have many base cards on my team wantlist dating back to 1970 that are not too hard to find. There are a lot of common cards on that list along with some short print cards and some oddballs. I decided to try to find cards that I do not see on trade lists very often, or when they do pop up on auction sites are over priced. I set my spending limit at 50 cents per card. My search led me to Sportflics.
I did not have any Cardinals from the 1988 Sportflics set. I know these do not scan the greatest, but you may notice the Doug Decinces card in the lower right looks like an Angels card. Doug finished his career in 1987 by playing 4 games with St. Louis. The back of the card has a Cardinals emblem, so I guess it is considered part of the set. All nine of these cards were also 38 cents each.
19 down, 1 more to go. I will save the last card I bought for another post. It is the one that I bought back in August. I spent a total $15.10 for the 20 cards. Not bad, but even better when I received $5 site credit from my scratch off card.
