Peoria, IL

This is the kind of random stuff that I really get a kick out of with this blog.  The cards above were sent from "Tom" in Peoria, IL.  The handful of you who read this regularly may notice the last cards were also sent by a "Tom" in Peoria.  Two different Toms.  What are the odds of that?

From Tom's yellow sticky note above, I assume what he means is that before checking out on Sportlots.com, he used the search "shopping cart" sellers function on the site to see if any of the dealers he was buying from also had Tim Wallach cards to sell.  Smart thinking Tom.  I appreciate it.

It's a function I use a lot as well.  Generally on Sportlots, once you commit to buying cards, your on the hook for a couple of bucks in shipping.  So it's a lot more practical to pay a little more for a card or two if it means paying for fewer sellers to ship.  I'm sure I'm not telling anyone anything they don't already know, but I am certainly suggesting that you start searching for "Wallach" before checking out.  Thanks for the cards Tom.

  1. Yep, that's exactly what I mean. FYI, one of the dealers I bought from DIDN'T HAVE ANY Tim Wallach cards when I searched. I think you're winning!

    1. I've wipped out a few of the lager wholesalers on sportlots. So it probably looks weird when some huge dealer doesn't have any.

      It's the guys who only have a handful and want $6 for shipping that are going to linger for a while.
