Ebay lot

For about decade ebay was my primary source for Wallach cards.  But over the last five or six years, I've been gradually using it less and less, to the point where I rarely buy actual Wallach cards on it.  It's still a great source for odd-ball stuff, but as far as cards go, there are just a lot of other cheaper options available.  That's not say I don't use it at all however.  The 100 card lot pictured above is a recent example of an ebay purchase.  100 cards at six cents a card is a good deal anywhere.  So I pulled the trigger. 

When it arrived, I quickly discovered it to be one of the stranger lots of Wallach cards that I had ever bought.  It consisted of only 11 different cards, with very little in common.  They ran from the very ordinary such as Topps base set cards to the much less ordinary, such as a large amount of Fleer Glossy.  This lot more than doubled my '87 Fleer Glossy total, and doubled my '88 Fleer Glossy total.  It may not seem like that strange a grouping for normal people who haven't spent decades studying the patterns that emerge from hoarding Wallach cards, but from the perspective of someone who has, it's just an odd grouping for a 100 card lot.
