That's kinda how I felt when I drove out to the Branham Flea Market this past Saturday and only found one vendor (Box Bottom Guy) with sports cards. Normally there are at least three or four. Even my buddy Tony was nowhere to be found.
Oh well... at least I didn't walk away completely empty-handed. Box Bottom Guy had a few things I was interested in...
Purchase #1: Discounted Relics and a Wannabe Rookie Card $12
All of the cards marked $2 or $3 (and the $5 Mulder) were a buck each, while the $5 Mazeroski and Kershaw were two bucks a piece.
2006 Bowman Heritage Prospects #BHP85
The main card I wanted was the Kershaw. After reading one of Night Owl's posts about his 2008 Topps Update official rookie card and the insane prices they're currently selling for, I figured this card was cool find and the closest I'd get to actually owning a rookie card of The Claw. The card looks clean in the scan, but the bottom left corner isn't "gem mint", which is probably why the guy was selling it so cheap.
Purchase #2: 1991 U.S. Playing Cards $1
The same vendor had this deck of cards sitting on his table for a dollar. I'm not sure about you, but I just can't pass up 2¢ oddballs.
Outside of Box Bottom Guy, there really weren't any of vendors of interest (at least to me). I was in and out of this flea market within 30 minutes.
Normally this wouldn't bother me too much, but I had high expectations for this flea market now that the Capitol Flea Market has been put on hiatus. I'll try to mentally not get my hopes up for my upcoming trip to the De Anza Flea Market.
What about you...
What was something you had high expectations for, but was left feeling disappointed?
Happy Thursday and sayonara!
