Where: Branham High School Flea Market
What: A Pennant, Some 45's, And A SLU
How Much?: $9
I've been meaning to head out to this flea market for a few months now, but I've just been too lazy. Years ago, my old roommate and I went a few times. It was pretty small and didn't leave a positive impression, so we eventually stopped going. That's probably why I wasn't motivated to try it out again.
Anyways... it's a three day weekend for me, so I decided to give it a shot and I'm pretty glad I did. I ended up making four purchases. However I'm going to split it up into two posts to keep things at a reasonable length.
Purchase #1: San Diego Padres Pennant $5
Purchase #2: Eight 45's $1
I pretty much wasted a dollar on this purchase, but at the time I just couldn't pass these 45's up. They totally took me back to my childhood. As you'll soon see... I listen to a wide range of music:
America - Sister Golden Hair
Jermaine Stewart - We Don't Have To Take Our Clothes Off
Elton John - Tiny Dancer
Men Without Hats - Safety Dance
Derek And The Dominos - Layla
Kenny Rogers - The Gambler
The Monkees - I'm A Believer
Kool And The Gang - Celebration
Purchase #3: 1989 Kenner Baseball Greats SLU Bench/Rose $3
My third and fourth purchases came from the same vendor who sold me the Burger Chef trays two months ago. I started things off by grabbing this Pete Rose/Johnny Bench two pack. The packaging was pretty heavily damaged, so I popped them open and added two new cards to my Kenner SLU card collection and two new SLU's to my shelf.
Here's a closer look:
I also picked up a handful of vintage Bowman baseball cards from this guy. But I'll save that for tomorrow's post.
Happy Monday and sayonara!
