When: Saturday, February 21st
Where: Branham High School Flea Market
What: Baseball Cards and Mad Magazine Cards
How much?: $38
Purchase #1: 2015 Topps Baseball $25
What you're staring at are two jumbo boxes worth of 2015 Topps Baseball minus the autographs, relics, and a handful of singles. I'll break the purchase down into three categories: base cards, inserts (for my binders), and extras.
After about an hour worth of sorting, I was able to build one complete base set (left stack), one partial set (middle stack), and there were a bunch of singles left over. Baseball Dad over at All Tribe Baseball offered to help me out and has already cut the number of cards I need in half.
If anyone else is building this set, maybe we can help each other out. I have plenty of doubles available for trade.
Next up are the thirty-nine cards I added to my inserts and parallels binders:
This purchase allowed me to add a decent stack of inserts to my binders for a relatively fair price. Plus I had plenty of inserts leftover for future care packages:
I grew up reading Mad Magazine and have wanted to purchase this set for years. I'm looking forward to busting a few packs and building the set. And if it's in the cards... maybe I'll be lucky enough to pull the Alfred E. Neuman hologram that was randomly inserted into packs.
Purchase #3: 1992 UD Comic Ball 3 Box $3
Are Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck, and Yosemite Sam still on TV? Can't remember the last time I watched Looney Tunes. But if you haven't figured it out yet... I really like holograms and this product was filled with them.
Well... as Porky Pig says... th-th-tha-tha-that's all folks!
Happy Wednesday and sayonara!
