Luckily the same rule does not apply to sports cards. Today's post wraps up my recent card show purchases (aka the leftovers).
Round 5: The Quarter Boxes $3
As hard as I try to avoid dime boxes and quarter bins, I just can't walk away from 80's rookie cards:
The dealer actually had about ten more 5,000 count boxes, but my back was really starting to hurt so I quit after two. I've met this guy before and he runs a show at the Crown Plaza Hotel in Concord. Maybe one of these days I'll give it a shot.
Round 6: The Dollar Bin $10
Last week I mentioned that I killed time looking at the guy's dime boxes, while four other guys were going through his dollar boxes. Eventually I had my chance to go through it and I grabbed these ten cards.
I was pretty happy to see this George Kell autographed card:
1992 Action Packed All-Star Gallery 24kt. Gold #11G
I'm not sure if the autograph is legit or not... but regardless... I'm still a big fan of the Action Packed 24kt. gold parallels from the early 90's.
The two other cards that really stood out to me were these memorabilia cards:
2001 SP Legendary Cuts Debut Bats #B-WP
2005 Donruss Greats Yankee Clippings Materials #YC-16
Graig Nettles was one of the few New York Yankees that I actually liked as a kid. On the other hand, Wes Parker played his final game when I was only a month old, so I don't remember watching him play. However... I do remember him from his guest appearance on the Brady Bunch.
Well that wraps up my card show haul. I apologize for stretching it out through four posts, but a blogger has to do... what a blogger has to do.
This weekend I'm going to borrow Daniel's (It's like having my own Card Shop) idea and write a post in five minutes. I'm predicting an epic fail since most of my posts take thirty to ninety minutes to write.
Fellow bloggers... what about you?
How much time do you invest on your blog posts?
Happy Thursday and sayonara!
