A couple of hockey HOFers from early 1970s Topps sets are always a good pickup...the Ullman is the first Leaf card from the 71-72 sets that I own. 50 cents was well worth it.
I figured I'd throw together a scan of some of the other cards I also purchased from the same table for 50 cents apiece. The Aaron is very well loved, but at 50 cents I just couldn't say no. I grabbed quite a few 71's, 73's and a few 75's from this table, the only "oddball" was the '72 Killebrew IA card you see below.
|Yes...all were 50 cents apiece|
A '69 Steve Carlton in damn good condition....and no, it wasn't 50 cents...
|At $12, this was the priciest card for me at the show...well worth it|
Some more '64 cards that feature McCovey and Yaz...as I mentioned the other day, I was able to snag a few of the league leader cards from the '64 set at good prices, I believe that these 3 cards cost me a total of $12.
Another nice find for me...this Piniella RC set me back $8.
|You can't tell me that it doesn't look like Sweet Lou spent too much time in a tanning booth|
All totaled, I spent a little over 6 weeks of my budget at the National, but the cards that I added to my collection included a lot of great finds at some pretty sweet deals, so I really can't complain.
Besides, what else was I going to do with my bonus check from work anyhow??
