Spent almost $50 at the monthly card show yesterday, probably the most I've spent there in several months. In addition to the star cards that I plucked out of the 3 for a $1 bin for trade bait, I found a few cards to add to my McCutchen and T.Y. Hilton collections.
Hilton is really easy to buy for right now, as I only have about 20-25 cards in that PC. I hadn't seen the die cut Playmakers insert anywhere before, so that was snapped up really quickly. The McCutchen PC is a little harder, as that's nearing 200 cards, but I was pretty sure that I didn't have the Legends blue parallel, as well the Fire parallel was something I was OK with buying even though I may have had it.
My thoughts over the past couple of years have also turned from being a Blue Jays collector (which has gotten way out of hand with all the baseball that is released now a days) to my other hometown team, the Maple Leafs. There's nowhere near as much hockey product out there, and down here in the south, I can usually find it for cheaper than up north.
When I saw this Morgan Rielly "brick" for $6, I snapped it up...
It's hard to see but the card is #'d 31/49 from the SP Game Used Edition set from 2015-16, so adding that to the pile was also easy.
But this next card was the biggest addition of the day, and almost half of what I spent.
This Eddie Murray RC was in the display case of the first table I sat down at, and was an easy buy at $22. Now I just have to find a Molitor/Trammell RC to my liking, and then the other 134 cards needed to finish the '78 Topps set should fall into place. Probably will not finish this in 2019; 1st half of 2020 is more realistic if I get some of the other sets I'm close to completing done.
Now it's time to get back to trading, and see if I can hit the 100 trade mark for the year by the end of September.
Thanks for reading!
