Where: De Anza Flea Market
What: 1972 World Series Program (Oakland A's version)
How Much: $25
I've slowly been building a small PC based on the 1972 Oakland A's. So far... I'm purchased a 1972 World Series pennant from the flea market last September for $10.
I'm also trying to build a complete 1972 Topps team set... I'm down to the last 7 cards, but they're all from the last series... so they're kind of pricey. Here are a few of the key cards from that set:
In December, I added my first World Series ticket stub to the collection. It's one of the Cincinnati Reds tickets, which go for a lot less on Ebay... compared to the Oakland ones... but at least it's a start. This one cost me $9.99 (+ $3.50 shipping):
And finally... after months of searching... I've finally picked up a 1972 Oakland A's World Series program. The lady who sold me the Harlem Globetrotters cards a few months back had this laying on her table. It's in amazing condition and the scorecard is unmarked. She offered it to me for $25, so I did a quick Ebay search from my phone... which revealed the prices ranging from $45.90 to $95. Sounded like a good deal to me, so I grabbed it. Another guy was interested in it... but the lady kindly told him that I had first dibs.
I'm slowly adding more and more memorabilia to this collection. Hopefully I can get my hands on one of the World Series tickets when they played in Oakland.
What about all of you...
Do any of you collect World Series memorabilia?
Specific year? Teams? Programs? Ticket Stubs?
Well... I hope all of you enjoy your Sunday afternoon... and have a great week. Sayonara!
