When I look back at all of the Oakland A's games I attended during my childhood, the two things that stand out the most are Kool and the Gang's Celebration and Krazy George. In fact, I get goosebumps every time I hear that song play after an A's win... or see that him banging on his drum.
Unfortunately... on Saturday they lost to the Mariners, so I didn't get to hear that song. But that's okay... because earlier in the day, I found this sweet bobblehead at the De Anza Flea Market:
I found it on a guy's table among a bunch of other sports figurines and was excited to hear his $10 asking price. After doing a little research, watching a video on YouTube, and talking to a buddy of mine... I discovered that these often sell for over $100. But it makes sense... right? I mean... how often do you get to see an old, bald guy who's wearing Daisy Dukes featured as a bobble.
If you're a Star Wars fan, then you probably heard about Force Friday. Unfortunately, by the time I made it out to Target, Walmart, and Toys 'R Us... there was hardly anything left. This figure was the number one thing on my want list. And considering that these sold for $19.99 + tax in stores, I was pretty excited to find it for $25 at the flea market.
The next day I walked around the Capitol Flea Market and immediately stumbled upon this 2002 hobby box of Fleer WWE Absolute Divas:
I figured for $8... this would be an entertaining box break. I also found another shoe box that contained someone's collection of 90's inserts and parallels:
Well that's a wrap. This particular weekend, "quality" reigned over "quantity" and I'm completely content with that.
Happy Tuesday and sayonara!
