My Black Friday

Sorry folks ( folk?), its been awhile since I last posted. I have recently been having a lot of technical difficulties. However, my mom was able to figure it out this morning and I am finally able to divulge the great details of my COMC Black Friday. I spent a little over $35 and qualified for free shipping 
I got the Bob Friend for $1.50. The Monte Irvin wasn't on sale but I decided it was a good deal for $2.95.

This mutilated Luke Easter came my way for a paltry $1.21!

I had to get about a dozen filler cards to qualify for free shipping.

All but one were under 40 cents including this beautiful Dimaggio!

Cards of guys in military uniform and Tris Speaker refractors are hard for me to resist.
 And finally, the only filler card I spent over 40 cents for:

It's Eddie!!!! I've wanting a card of Eddie Gaedel for a while, so this card for 45 cents was a steal in my mind. But that's not all. I am still to divulge the 2 centerpiece cards!
Holy moely!
I got the Jack Quinn for a paltry $12.25, down from $30.25 without the sale! I think for  a 247 game-winner  that was a serious bargain. Old Jack Quinn survived in the majors until his very late 40s as  a relief pitcher!  Also a  1933 Goudey card of a 22-year survivor for $6.38 was a awesome deal. I actually got these cards in the mail on Saturday, but I wasn't able to post them until today. I also got my dad 8 cards closer to completing the 1970 Topps set, which he started in 1970, for a late birthday present. Overall, a Black Friday well spent.
