Mail Day: Mike Schmidt PC Additions & Schmidt PC Virtual Binder
May 15, 2019
These are the first cards I’ve added to my Mike Schmidt collection since 1990. I won a very cheap eBay auction for 52 different cards, some are doubles, but there were a ton of mid/late 80 Fleer cards, some Kaybee and Score cards that I didn’t have. And for the price, it was worth the addition.
The new cards gave me an opportunity to resort my Schmitty cards for the first time since junior high school. I didn’t put a lot of thought into how to organize them, I was a Topps acolyte in my youth, so I always gave the Big Brand priority seating. So I stuck with what I knew and sorted by brand then year then subset. So the binder goes Topps > Fleer > Donruss > Score > Upper Deck > Oddballs.
I’ve got my eye on a couple other Schmidt lots on eBay, which may give me a reason to resort them by year then brand. Until then, I did scan all the Schmidt pages in my Phillies’ PC binder. If you want to flip through my “Virtual Schmidt Binder“, you can click here.
