More Card Show Camaraderie

Yesterday I attended my first card show of the year and had the opportunity to hang out with two familiar names in the cardboard blogosphere:  Brady (Yadier Molina Baseball Cards) & Mr. Haverkamp (cardboard blog supporter).

This is the second time I've had the opportunity to talk shop with Brady and there's a chance we'll both be going to the De Anza Flea Market in a couple of weeks.  

At the show we exchanged boxes to help each other's collections.  Unfortunately, I had no idea he'd fill up a 400ct. box.  I had a blast digging through it and checking out the variety of cardboard contents.

The box included cards from four of my PC's:  Oakland A's, San Diego Padres, Montreal Expos, and Japanese Athletes.  Here are just a few of my favorites:

There was a little bit of everything in this box:  inserts, rookie cards, parallels, vintage, and even a few memorabilia cards:

Thanks Brady for this awesome box of cards.  Hopefully you were able to use a few of the Cardinals I brought.  If we meet up at De Anza, I'll have some more for you.  I picked up some stuff with your collection in mind later on in the day at the show.

After I saw Brady, I ran into Mr. Haverkamp.  We've hung out a few times at the Serramonte Show.  One time he sold me some cool A's memorabilia.  Another time, he traded me a 1975 Topps Mini of Thurman Munson.

This time around, he brought five unmarked checklists for my 1975 Topps Mini set:

I mentioned awhile back that I purchased a complete 1975 Topps Mini set, but discovered that a bunch of the checklists had pencil markings.  Earlier in the week, he graciously offered to help me out.

Thanks Mr. Haverkamp.  Let me know which sets you're working on and I'll try to return the favor.

Happy Sunday and sayonara!
