Last year, I managed to find only one figure to add to my collection: an Albert Pujols bobblehead I found at a small shop in Osaka. I still have a dozen-plus more figurines on my want list for my player collections, but I've been avoiding eBay due to high shipping fees. Sunday, I picked up four Starting Lineup figures to go along with the two Topps ... things ... that I got on New Year's Day.
Barry Bonds heads into my player collection.
My final figure is this 2000 Scott Williamson from the Extended Series. You can see the difference in quality and size here. The packaging is all the same size.
These three figures are entered into my type collection.
The Comaneci figure was bought at that thrift shop where I got the two jerseys I posted about yesterday. They had a couple baseball bobbleheads and figures too, but those were overpriced and out of my budget anyway.
The four baseball figures were part of a Yahoo Auctions group of purchases from one seller. Combined with shipping, I think I spent under 1000 yen (less than $10)! And these figures are in really good shape.
Who knows? Maybe this will be a lucky year and I'll be able to add several figures to my collection!
