Glad you're enjoying the thread! It's been a lot of fun. If I don't turn a profit, it'll still be worth the cost of the lot in entertainment value.

That being said, with less than half the sets even listed, and only a few sales, I've already got 12.9% of the initial investment back. It'll take some time. but I expect we'll get there, and hopefully have a few PSA subs to boot.

Like others, I find this very interesting and entertaining. Primarily because I collected minor league cards starting in around 1991 and stopped around 2001.

But the main reason I'm posting is to say that there is a "notable" card in the Huntington Cubs set - Amaury Telemaco. That name rang a bell and I looked him up on Baseball Reference. He pitched for around 9 years in the majors getting into over 200 games. He was a real stud with a -0.9 career WAR. I also looked into the Madison Muskies set and there is no one who stands out to me, not even Gubanich. I had to look him up, never heard of him before.

Good luck and keep posting!

I'm glad you're enjoying the thread. It's fun to share these little "projects" with fellow collectors...motivates me to keep going, and makes the little victories bigger since I get to share.

I've always loved minor league sets...I have bought a LOT over the years...for autographs, for rare/interesting cards of stars, and just for fun.

Ha ha....I guess "recognizable names" is very subjective. I consider myself a pretty informed baseball fan, and I don't recognize Telemaco. Gubanich played in the Red Sox system for a bit, so I remember him from that. He had a 0.2 career WAR in only 18 games.

Another sale:

1994 ProCards Louisville Redbirds

Sold for $3.99 plus $3.99 shipping. Shipping cost $3.35, so minus shipping, eBay fees, and the original 60 cent cost of the set, that's $2.68 profit. That $2.68 pays for roughly 4 1/2 set purchases.

Someone bought THREE sets!

1993 ProCards Waterloo Diamonds
1993 ProCards Columbus Clippers
1993 ProCards Appleton Foxes

$3.99 each plus $5.99 combined shipping ($3.99 plus $1 per set) for a total sale of $17.96. Shipping cost me $3.57. Figure in $2.51 in eBay fees, and the original price of the sets and I've got a $10.08 profit here!

So, with six sets sold (and a couple lots from other sets) we've resold about 6% of the lot and have made back 34.5% of our investment. Not a bad start!

Just had someone buy FIVE sets!

1993 ProCards Spokane Indians
1992 ProCards Gulf Coast Dodgers
1994 ProCards Columbus RedStixx
1994 ProCards Burlington Indians
1994 ProCards Rockford Royals

$3.99 each times 5 = $19.95. I combined shipping at $7.99 for a total of $27.94. I upgraded the seller to priority shipping as a thank you for the order, which cost me $7.67.

After shipping, ebay fees, and original cost of the 5 sets is figured in, that's a profit of $13.53 ($2.70 per set)!

That puts us over 59% of our initial investment recouped, with only 11 sets sold, 3 lots sold, and 41 more sets to list!

Another sale...from the 1994 Albany-Colonie Yankees set, this time a 2-card lot of Jim Wiley. I made a $1.79 offer when someone watched the item and they purchased.

At $1.79 minus 0.53 shipping and eBay fees gives us a profit of 74 cents.

That pushes us past 65% of initial cost reclaimed....not a bad start!

Mike, if this helps your math at all...

...unless I'm having a brain fart...and it's entirely possible ...

...you've already adjusted for the cost of the sets in each transaction by listing the $58.74 original purchase price.

If you're keeping track based on what has been "reclaimed", you don't need to deduct the original purchase price of each transaction because you've already done that. All your other deductions/additions (fees, shipping, etc..) are relevant...but that one should not be, IMO.

You've technically, not actually made a profit, until you exceed the $58.74 purchase price...but I think you're closer to that goal then you think you are.

Just my "2 cents" , and somebody please correct me if I'm wrong, or have explained that horribly.

Thanks Dave...I see what you're saying. I'm either doing my math wrong, or comparing apples to oranges...maybe both.

It's probably the latter...where I'm calling it "total reclaimed", I should be calling it "total profit".

Found another set with a card that stuck my interest.

The 1993 Procards Birmingham Barons set has a few recognizable names on it, with the biggest player probably being Ray Durham. I was actually after the manager of that minor league squad, Terry Francona. I think Francona is a HOF manager, and figured this would be a fun card to sub.

I am likely in the majority on that opinion (PSA pop zero), but the card looks good enough to go into my "future sub" pile.

This isn't the first pop zero Francona card I've subbed to PSA...but that's a story for another day!

The rest of the set gets listed on eBay, at $1.69 each since they're only one card and not two card lots.

Another sale:

993 ProCards Birmingham Barons MIKE ROJAS #1210

I had this listed at $1.69 and when someone "watched" it, I offered 10% off. So, a whopping $1.52 sale! After shipping and fees, that still gives me a 50 cent profit...which I'll take for a 28 year old card of a minor league coach!
