Ahh, Britney Spears. She has nothing to do with this post. I just wanted to use that song lyric to show off some pickups from one of my local card shops.
First, a couple '11 Topps hits:
I also picked up three Astros relics to use as trade bait. If Sam doesn't bite, maybe someone else will?
They had one box, but not packs, of Gypsy Queen - $185. Unbelievable! I didn't pick up any packs of anything today, but seeing dayf take a break from posting every single GQ card he has to show this year's Topps HTA cards invited me to ask the shop if they had any cards. Why, yes, they did! And would you like an entire set now? Sure! So while I probably wouldn't have put the set together, and instead just picked up a sample card, I now have the whole thing. I'll post a gallery of the cards sometime in the next week or so.
