Where: Capitol Flea Market
What: Non Sports Collection
How Much?: $4
I discovered these in a brown bag next to some X-Men trading card boxes. As I examined the boxes to see if there were any unopened packs, the guy told me there was more stuff in the bag. Sitting right on top was the complete set of X-Men holograms. I immediately asked the guy how much he wanted and he told me $15 for everything. I countered with $4... but explained that I only wanted the bag and he accepted.
When: Saturday, August 4th
Where: Berryessa Flea Market
What: Sports Card Collection
How Much?: $12
Most of the stuff was football, but there was some baseball and basketball sprinkled in. I'm a little strapped for time, so I'll highlight some of the stuff in future posts.
When: Sunday, August 5th
Where: Santa Cruz Flea Market
What: Boxing & Baseball Card Sets
How Much?: $5
In fact, this is one of my worst flea market finds. Everything is based on the big black box you see above, since the other two sets are cool... but not worth much. When I made the purchase, I thought the black Stadium Club box was one of those Member's Only sets from the early 90's. It turned out to be the 1992 Stadium Club Dome Set... without the dome. However that's not the worst of it. Turns out... the Manny and all of the other valuable cards were pulled a long time ago... which means I purchased a box of 1992 Stadium Club commons.
That's what I get for not opening the box up to see if everything was in it. At least the 1987 Fleer Miniatures and 1991 Ringlords sets are still factory sealed. One of these days, I'll pop them open and do a write up on them.
Today's question of the day...
Have you ever purchased a set only to find out that the key cards were missing?
Sorry... the contest is over. So points will not be awarded. But that's good for me... I'm excited to get back in the "posting" groove without the stress of tallying up points.
Okay... I apologize for the drawn out post, but I had a lot to cover and didn't want to do three mini posts. Happy Hump Day and sayonara!
