I haven't written one of these posts for a few weeks, and the rules say that there's no time frame for these, so I figured this was a perfect opportunity to move forward in the list.
Day 7: A card you bought in person and the story behind it.
I've bought a lot of cards in person over the past few years, but for some reason, this card came to mind right away.
My '64 Pete Rose. I remembered right away what I paid for it. $38. I remember buying it at the monthly card show back in October '13 when I lived up north.
It's always great when you go to a show expecting to do one thing, and come home with something that was totally unexpected. Finding this card was not something I expected to do that day.
This was one of the cards that taught me that you can put vintage sets together at a reasonable price, no matter what the price guides say. Patience is definitely a virtue when it comes to building older sets, and finding something that you like with higher priced cards can be a challenge.
That's my story, and I'm sticking to it.
Thanks for reading, Robert
