The Final Cards From The Bottom Drawer

Quite some time ago, I had made a few posts about the bottom drawer of my bureau. There was stashed a bunch of cards from card shows that I hadn't posted yet. I've since gotten rid of the bureau and needed to put the cards elsewhere. So here's a post showing the rest of them off. Most were pulled out of dimeboxes (back when they were much more plentiful).

I posted them chronologically, so here is the vintage first. I'm pretty sure I paid more than a dime for the Eckersley rookie.

I already have the 2 Dale Murphy rookies but these are in better condition.

The only Kellogg's card in the group but a good one.

More 1979 Topps. I will finish this set someday.

Some 1981 Fleer, a 1982 Donruss Tom Seaver and a 1982 Topps Danny Ainge.


A 1984 Fleer Tony Gwynn and a few 1984 O-Pee-Chee and Topps.

Mostly 1985 Donruss here. I think this is the 80's set that I have the least amount of cards from.

A bunch of 1985 Fleer. I'm not sure why I needed 2 George Bells.

Some stars from 1986 Donruss and a few 1992 Bowman.

More 1992 Bowman and I believe that auto on the 1996 Leaf Signature Series Dwayne Hosey card is real.

A bunch of cards from 2016 Bowman Chrome Prospects. The others are from the 2016 Topps Archives 65th Anniversary Edition which were sold only at Walmart. A box of 15 cards plus 1 autograph cost $24.98.

I bought 5 boxes. With 15 cards in a box and only a 65 card set you would think I would have gotten pretty close to a full set but that was not the case. 

Every box I bought had almost the same base cards. I even got duplicates of the autographs...2 Kent Tekulves and 2 of Dontrelle Willis plus 1 of Vern Law.

The 1981 Topps Rick Reuschel was a buyback from that set and the Tony Fernandez was numbered 20/50.

It feels good to finally get all of those posted.

Thanks for reading!
