Finishing up the Facebook Marketplace Purchase and Prizes for an Upcoming Contest

Alright, I'm going to try to finish up my Facebook Marketplace purchase in one last post here. I don't think I'll have any pictures because this is mostly for me anyways.

I was at $44 dollars worth previously.

1991 Studio Set, missing just 7 cards. 51, 53, 112, 154, 171, and 234 with Rod Carew puzzle  - $5
Boardwalk Baseball All-Time Records Holders 44 card set - $5
Circle K All-Time Home Run Kings 33 card set - $5

So that puts me at $59.

I went through and pulled out 9 cards from every set represented so I could put them in a binder. Probably got about 25 different pages; everything from 1986 O-Pee-Chee to 1994 Leaf. I'm going to give each page a $1 value. So that puts me at $84.

Next I tried giving away all the other cards via Twitter. The guy that I found locally offered me D-Backs bobbleheads in exchange. i told him it wasn't needed, but if he wanted I did need one bobblehead from last year, so he gave me the 2018 Ketel Marte Luchador bobblehead and he even through in a Zach Grenike mini bobblehead that wasn't a stadium giveaway, but was part of a package if you made a donation to the Phoenix Children's Hospital a couple years ago.So I value those two bobbleheads conservatively at $30. My total now is at $114.

So for $100 I got $114 worth of value in my opinion between various cards and the two bobbleheads, plus I got 19 factory sealed Topps sets. Not bad.

Now, I'll be working on the contest that I mentioned a few weeks ago. I've got the prizes, but I haven't got the contest figured out just yet.

I did pick up another prize for the contest recently though. Not sure if anyone would be interested in a Ron Tompkins rookie card. In addition to the Tompkins rookie card, I have the 1956 Hank Aaron and the 1978 Eddie Murray RC.

With prizes this big, I might need a while to come up with the contest, so be patient.


  1. Whoa! Those are some monster prizes.

  2. Somebody's gonna be winning some pretty cool stuff.

  3. WOW! That Tompkins RC is awesome!

  4. Congrats on all the great pickups!

  5. Wow nice. I recently picked up the Tompkins RC for relatively cheap. Too many sellers want a minimum of 3 figures.
