Card show spoils
Didn't spend a whole lot on cards at the monthly show this time around. Just 55 dollars, 20 of which went on the 3 1964 Topps high number cards you see above. These 3 cards bring the total remaining down to 48, which now that I think about it means that I could realistically buy 1 card a week and be finished by the end of November.
I was able to put a small dent into my '59 Topps set as well, finding 15 more cards at the show that were affordable. 10 of these 15 were only $1 apiece, a reasonable price for '59 commons. This set is quickly approaching the halfway mark; with any luck I'll be at that point after a couple of more shows.
Keeping up with the finding hockey in the least likeliest place theme, I have a couple of more Leafs cards to show off. Well, the first one is actually pictured as a Leafs player...Tim Horton
This 69-70 OPC #182 card was found for a paltry $2.50. I wondered why I got it so cheap until I realized that there was some pen markings on the back, but it doesn't matter to me because this card is a great addition to my Leafs collection.
I also picked up a trio of cards to start some envelopes for some other bloggers. Hopefully this will be the start of getting more envelopes to the blogosphere during 2016.
