If you’re out there exploring the world of collecting online, then there’s one non-traditional — but not unusual — type of video out there you’ll discover.

The “mailday video” where a collector just wants to show off a new find.

With that said, join Beckett Baseball‘s Chris Olds for just that where he shows some of the stuff he’s bought in the last few months of buying on one sports card site.

Why? Just for fun … and, besides, we noticed many of you watched them before.

    nice collection chris. oakland a’s were the best back in the 80s with mcgwire, canseco, henderson, weiss (a very underated shorstop in my opinion). nick swisher. a very good player but i have to dislike him because he plays for the yankess. sorry.

    i didnt count how many swisher cards you had but id guess the count was almost close with the canseco’s as well.

    i collect anything mets/jets and of course future hall of famer frank thomas. if a mets/jets player got traded or signed with another team, my belief is, they will always be mets/jets player. they started their career there and i should follow them where they go. unless of course the go to the yankees. dwight gooden. i dont have not on card with him in a yankee uniform. when he went to cleveland and houston i started collecting his cards again. same with darryl when he went to the yankees.

    my frank thomas collection gets bigger every week. some of the autos are a lil out of my price range but i try to get a few here and there around tax time. and like you, i have to have every parallel thats made. i currently have 8 binders of thomas cards. all labled by brand and jerseys/bats etc. ive been lucky enough to buy a bat and ball both signed by thomas. i have every issue of beckett that had thomas on the cover back in the day. as well as other mags with him on cover.

    anyway, i enjoyed the video. it showed us what the man behind box busters actually enjoys collecting.

    I would love to see the entire Chris Olds collection, that would be pretty inspiring I do believe. I was loving the vintage wrestling cards in the video. As much as I have a passion for collecting and wrestling. My collection of wrestling cards is very weak. Great video , keep em comin.

    i agree with michael. maybe a home edition box busters. i think that’d be pretty cool.

    I can’t believe I just watched that whole video counting the Swishers since I didn’t see any comments on here giving a guess for the total, and then at the end you say the contest is via Twitter. Of course when I check Twitter someone else already got the total. At least there were some cool cards to look at. The funny thing is I think you got substantially more Jose Canseco cards that you got of Swisher cards. Though the 75 Topps Mini of Swisher’s dad was a nice touch.
