When: Saturday, April 5th
Where: De Anza Flea Market
What: More Vintage League Leaders
How Much?: $5
The flea market has really helped my Vintage Topps League Leaders Project in recent weeks. On Saturday, I picked up three more cards. The first two are new additions...
While the third card was a nice upgrade:
I picked all three of these cards up from one of my friends who sets up there every month. I know I overpaid, but he's given me some decent deals in the past.
When: Sunday, April 6th
Where: Capitol Flea Market
What: Comics, Team USA Bobble, and UFC DVD's
How Much?: $22
Purchase #1: 2001 US Foundation Landon Donovan Bobblehead $10
Landon Donovan is one of the greatest male soccer players in U.S. history and is their all-time leader in scoring and assists. Once upon a time, he played in San Jose for the Earthquakes. He currently plays for their rival... the Los Angeles Galaxy... but that's okay. He's still a nice addition to my San Jose shelf.
Purchase #2: Bronze Age Comic Books $3
I guess I've been watching too many episodes of Comic Book Men... because I've recently been drawn towards vintage comic books. I just really like the colors and the old school look and feel. I've been seeing a lot of old comics at the flea market the past few months, but typically I won't bother looking unless they're cheap.
As soon as the vendor said a dollar an issue, I dove right in. My favorite is the Werewolf By Night which happened to be released the same month I was born.
My latest obsession is finding cool DVD's at the flea market. My friend really wants a copy of Aladdin for her kids and I promised to try and track one down for her. Unfortunately, I have never seen a copy for less than $10. But that's okay... it keeps things interesting and every now and then, I end up finding some DVD's for myself.
I was pretty stoked when I saw these, because one of my friends sold a bunch of these on eBay and made a decent profit. Anyways... I figured it would be a good way to make up some of the money I lost on that Koufax.
But I think I'm going to end up keeping them. I wouldn't exactly call myself an MMA fan, however I enjoy watching some of the bigger names fight. And there are a bunch of big names on these DVD's.
Well... that's all for now.
Happy Monday and sayonara!
