Being able to spend a little more money allows me to make purchases like the following:
|Love the sleeveless jerseys. I wouldn't mind seeing more of those around baseball|
|Ron Willis looks kind of spaced out|
|I wonder how Dave Ricketts was able to wear those glasses under his catchers mask.|
The majority of these cards were either 50 or 75 cents. The Don Sutton at the bottom was $1 because of the crease that you can plainly see dividing his face in half.
My favorite card of the bunch? 3rd scan, top left corner, Ted Savage. Love the old school bear cub logo on the sleeve. A close 2nd is the Bob Rodgers in the last scan.
These 28 cards brought me to a total of 98 cards owned for the '68 set. Exactly 500 to go! I only need another 22 more cards to hit the goal of having 20% of the set owned by years end. The '68 is a little more wallet friendly than the '62, so I am likely going to be pursuing this set a little more vigorously. The burlap design is also growing on me quickly as I obtain more cards.
Total amount spent this week: $90
I only spent $60 of that at the show, the other $30 was spent in a moment of weakness at Wal Mart last weekend on a bunch of cards encased in metal. Another bad habit I'll describe in tomorrow's post.
