Good Sunday morning to you all...it's Super Bowl Sunday. Although I will be rooting for the Giants to win, I have a feeling that Patriots are going to pull this one out (I've been known to be wrong before).
Yesterday was an interesting day for me to say the least. $700 to fix my truck (with more to come) left me in a bit of a mood, and also with a lot less time than I normally have to peruse the monthly card show.
I did hit some of my usual tables however, and picked up some stuff quickly and cheaply. I snagged 3 more cards towards the insanity set. At another table the dealer was selling '12 Topps at 3/$5, so I bought $20 worth, and did OK. A couple of doubles, nothing too serious, 4 of the '87 minis and handfuls of the other inserts of which I will not bore you with the scans. I will show you the best card I pulled...
Anytime I hit this show I always go to my vintage guy. He has a table full of vintage from the 50's through the 70's. I decided that I was going to spend no more than 10 bucks at his table, so I started leafing through the 50 cent row of cards he had. The '64 Topps set is becoming a curiosity for me, largely because that's another design that I can't help but like (kind of like the '86, yeah I know it's weird, but I'm like that...). I found a half dozen of the '64s that I now have in my possession.
The backs of these cards were also in pretty good shape as well.
The same dealer always has 100 count lots of sets from the 70's for a bargain price as well, so I took a look at the '75 Topps he had. He had it listed for $7, on the top of the case was this card:
Two parts of the big Red Machine
I didn't have any of my want lists with me unfortunately because of my time constraints, but still it was a pretty good haul considering.
Thanks for reading, Robert
