It's because there are so many things to talk about: the vendors, the people walking around, and of course... the merchandise.
But today I'm switching gears. Life has been pretty hectic as of late, so I'm going to summarize my recent card show experience in as few words as possible.
Are you ready? Get set. Let's go!
Purchase #1: 50¢ Bin (Twenty Cards) $10
Inserts and Parallels
Football Memorabilia Cards
Baseball Memorabilia Cards
Pulled a huge stack of cards in hopes of a discount. It didn't happen, so I narrowed it down to these 20 cards.
Purchase #2: 3 For A $1 Box (Twelve Cards) $4
Nothing too spectacular, but I can always use Darvish rookie cards and mid 90's refractors.
Purchase #3: Kurt Suzuki Backpack $5
Remember the guy I sold the binder to? He set aside this cool, Kurt Suzuki chest protector backpack given away in 2010 to season ticket holders:
Purchase #4: 2003 Flair Greats Sweet Swatch Classic Bat $5
This box topper is enormous! The only downside is the lack of pine tar.
So... what do you think? Not bad... right? I spent three hours at a card show and only dropped $24. In addition to these purchases, I also received a few freebies. You can read about it... here.
Oh and I even found this beauty as I was walking out:
I didn't even bother asking... since I only had $26 left in my pocket. But if I ever win the lottery... this might be my very first purchase.
Happy Tuesday and sayonara!
