Santa’s Helper Has A Name: goyboy

Back in October I made a big purchase from goyboy at his Blujay Online Market website, and on a whim I recently went back and took a look at what he had there.  Besides several more Twins cards I added to my cart, he fished through some others boxes and when all was said and done, the 200+ cards I bought from him (for a little over $60) topped the 149 cards from the previous purchase.

There is such a variety of great cards, I had to show a sampling from each brand.


clockwise, from top left: 2001 Topps Stadium Club Super Teams Twins; 2004 Topps Fall Classic #FC1987 Twins vs. Cardinals; 2008 Topps Opening Day Tattoo TC Bear; 1993 Topps Rockies Inaugural Year #200 Kirby Puckett; 2003 Topps Total Total Topps #TT17 Torii Hunter; 2003 Topps Traded Gold #T274 Trent Oeltjen [0890/2003]

So, the order included:

  • 4 GU cards (3 purchased to be used in trades)
  • 35 s#’d cards
  • 5 Artist Proof / Press Proof cards
  • 6 short print cards
  • 1 uncirculated card

  • 1 MLB Showdown card
  • 22 Pacific cards
  • 7 Score cards
  • 24 Topps cards
  • 62 Upper Deck cards

Seems like I always have to get a new box of Ultra-Pro pages every time I order from goyboy…


clockwise, from top left: 1999 Fleer Mystique #116 Corey Koskie [1068/2999]; 2003 Fleer Focus Jersey Edition Century #132 Torii Hunter [018/148]; 2003 Fleer Patchworks #102 Lew Ford [0207/1500]; 2000 Fleer Showcase First #17 Matt LeCroy [382/500]; 2003 Fleer Box Score Press Clippings #TH-PC Torii Hunter (jersey); 2003 Fleer Mystique #85 Mike Ryan [456/699]

…and it takes a week to sort through the stack and update my wantlists.

Randy, you continue to out do yourself. Hopefully more of the blogging community here checks out your “store” and finds out for themselves what great stuff you’ve got for sale there. Thanks again and happy holidays!

  1. I just received my first order of 171 Red Sox cards from Goyboy the other day.

    He is now looking for some more Red Sox off my want list that he doesn’t have listed onto BluJay yet. He is already up to 50+ more that I need.

    Thanks for the new source of cards.

  2. Would you be interested in the Hunter plaque? I can send a pic if you are interested.

  3. I never heard of that site before but after reading your post and a visit to goyboy there is now a package of Red Sox bound for AZ…

  4. I just have to tell you how envious I am of that Twins Super team card. I am trying to put that set together and that is one of the cards I am missing. If you ever want to sell or trade it let me know. I have a 2003 absolute memorabilia autographed plaque of Tori Hunter I believe is numbered out of 50. If you would be interested I would trade straight up. Either way congrats on the great card.

    • Well, sorry, now that I’ve filled that gap, I wouldn’t want to open it back up again! Actually, I didn’t even know about it until I found it at goyboy’s site. You might want to ask him if he had any other of those.
