How could I not?
I was absolutely shocked when I came across a stack of 1975 Topps cards in there, and the digging began in earnest.
I just couldn't pass them up, you know what I'm saying? My original plan was to put a dent into my '77 Topps set, but for some reason every table that I came across that had '77s had them at ridiculous prices (at least in my opinion), so I wound up picking up more '75s than I had originally bargained for.
I picked up 69 cards for this set at this table, and found a couple of '73s to bring the total amount of cards to $5!
I even found one of the worst airbrush jobs on a card imaginable in this box. If I were a Cardinals fan, I'd be disappointed to say the least.
|Was the attempt really even worth it?|
The dealer at that table even threw in a couple of '60s cards I found in her "bargain bin" as well...
I spent a total of $5 at that table, and probably had the most fun there over all the other tables that I visited over the 2 days.
Like I mentioned earlier in this post, one of the main objectives was to put a dent into my '77 set. If I could call anything at the National a disappointment, it would be the fact that I only managed to score these 8 cards.
|Some names I remember in here|
This post rounds out my Friday experience at the National. I spent $88 on the first day, and this sums up what kind of damage I did:
- 8 cards towards the '77 set
- 69 cards towards the '75 set
- 40 cards for the insanity set
- 4 jersey/relic cards (including 2 Jays)
- 5 '62s
- 39 cards towards the '64 set
- 8 cards towards the'73 set
- Also picked up vintage cards from '63/'65/'66/'68 sets
Saturday's fun is still to come....
