A couple weeks back I mentioned the West Palm Beach card show and that was another show closer to my house the next weekend (which was last week).
I asked my good friend Chris if he'd like to make the trek to Pompano Beach (30 minutes) and have a look around. Off we went.
It was almost the same M.O. as the previous week. I hit one table, stayed there for about an hour and a half, and spent $20.
This time, the table was nothing but football, and the boxes I hit were 25c boxes. Still did quite well though!
Sometimes, you just got to dig for stuff....
Amazing I found 3 Larry Fitzgerald cards in the quarter box, all of them jersey cards. The Classics and the Prestige cards are both numbered as well, so this was quite the score.
I also found a dozen other base and parallel cards of Fitz that I needed.
This next pair of scans is what really got me though. I found 16 cards, in a quarter box, all serial #'d to 99!
These aren't your rookie flops or guys that you have never heard of, I found quite a few decent names in here, past and present. This find takes me well over the 100 card mark for the serial #'d/99 collection and I'm still blown away about how many of these kinds of cards I've found for cheap.
I started finding trade bait, along with cards that I put in the pile just because I liked the look of them.
I thought that these would scan better, because I really like the look of these Panini Unparalleled cards. The Tyler Lockett card on the left is #'d out of 49 and these just look great in general.
|The Chronicles are either green or purple parallels|
All kinds of parallels and #'d cards were in these boxes. I did grab a few from a dollar and 2 dollar box, but when I went to pay thinking I had about $30 worth of cards in the pile, I was told just $20.
Honestly, I don't remember the last time I did card shows in 2 straight weekends.
Getting out 2 weekends in a row felt really good though after being away and cooped up for 15-16 months. I'm going to take a couple of weekends off and wait for the next show on the 18th in West Palm Beach. Maybe make it 3 straight shows where I only spend 20 bucks.
Enjoy the hobby!!
2nd straight week of winning at a card show
