Finally, the end! Over the past week you've seen card after card from mostly-forgotten insert sets that I overlooked for my collection until now.
Today, I bring out the big guns.
No, I didn't buy a Jeter autograph, or even a Rickey Henderson autograph, or even a Bob Feller autograph.
But I did awesome.
All these cards came from the same dealer, the first one I hit when I reached the show. I almost wrote off his boxes while looking through them - there were two boxes labeled at $1 each, 10 for $7. I saw several junk cards and was about to write off the rest of them, and then I started finding cards I wanted.
First, the "regular" cards - inserts and such.
Now I know what you're saying. So, for a dollar each (or, a little less), you picked up some inserts and base cards. Sure, for about 70 cents each I picked those up. But I also got this:
Next, an autograph, for less than a buck:
Okay, an autograph for under a buck. What could be better than that?
Are you expletive deleteding me?
A Yankee starter, 13-year veteran, two-time all-star, ERA leader, and World Series champion?
On a printing plate 1/1?
For under a buck?
Expletive deleteding awesome.
It's from 2007 Topps Series 1.
Total cost (9 cards, 2 jerseys, autograph, and printing plate): $10.
Thank you and goodnight.
wow, great deal on a 1/1 of Sweaty Freddy!ReplyDelete
Which dealer was this?ReplyDelete
That Inge card has Don Kelly's face.ReplyDelete
SMG: I wouldn't have even noticed. I don't think I can recognize most baseball players by their face, even on the Giants. Except of course Mr. 420, Panda, and the crazy bearded mountain man. Maybe Buster Posey. I don't know why, maybe because I spend so much of that area of my brain's efforts on learning student names and faces.ReplyDelete
CCC: It was the one who was next to the Old Navy entrance, with all the signed Raiders helmets and photos. He had a box with $1 each, 10 for $7, and they all came out of that box.
