100% of my income is derived from the sabermetric baseball encyclopedia and my ebay store. So, all purchases from there contribute to letting me keep the ATM reports coming, and free. Make the store the source of your Father’s Day baseball shopping. In addition to me highlighting potential gifts in their own category at the store, anything you find can, by definition, be a gift. There are over 100 items currently in the store, with approximately 20 new ones added each day. Almost all of my items are now available to be purchased immediately, without the risks of losing a bidding war.

Today, the bidding ends one of those exceptions–the Ken Burns Baseball DVD set + baseball cards + sabermetric baseball encyclopedia. Among the other highlights of the store are 50+ year old books, an autographed Reggie Jackson baseball (not up yet, but it will be this afternoon) and lots of Sports Illustrated issues, baseball books and cards. There are more than 150 items currently available, with about 20 being added each day.

100% of my income is derived from the sabermetric baseball encyclopedia and my ebay store. So, all purchases from there contribute to letting me keep the ATM reports coming, and free. Make the store the source of your Father’s Day baseball shopping. In addition to me highlighting potential gifts in their own category at the store, anything you find can, by definition, be a gift. There are over 100 items currently in the store, with approximately 20 new ones added each day. Almost all of my items are now available to be purchased immediately, without the risks of losing a bidding war.

Today, the bidding ends one of those exceptions–the Ken Burns Baseball DVD set + baseball cards + sabermetric baseball encyclopedia. Among the other highlights of the store are 50+ year old books, an autographed Reggie Jackson baseball (not up yet, but it will be this afternoon) and lots of Sports Illustrated issues, baseball books and cards. There are more than 150 items currently available, with about 20 being added each day.

The store is located at http://stores.ebay.com/baseball-cards-books-dvds
