Musing about my five collecting interests: all things Orioles, 50's Baseball, team publications, Japanese cards and even some football and hockey.
You might find some beautiful women, soccer stuff, presidential pins and life advice from time to time. I don't charge extra for any of those.

COMC Throw Ins
Im sure nearly everyone does this sometimes... find a card you need or want from an online site and then pick up a bunch of other cards just to make the delivery cost worthwhile.
I had picked out some football singles on COMC and the cost wasn't much more than the $3 shipping they charge so I figured I'd grad a few others just so that I wasn't paying more for shipping than the cards cost.
In that situation I have a game plan: search for newer Oriole cards since I hardly ever buy these things by the pack.
I grabbed these from (I guess) the Topps Heritage card set. I might not have grabbed to Frank Robinson card at the top but I'm a sucker for those Cincy duds he's wearing. The name under the uni number is so unique and cool.
Another thing I always love is a card design that reflects team colors. Add to that the fact it's a Manny Machado card and I'm grabbing it.
And finally I'll take a cheap Palmer card anytime.
