After going to a local card show this past weekend, I’m going to have a special week with more than my usual three posts. This is my first show post, and it describes the sizable bag of booty I took from the show.
My goal for the show was to pick up some unopened packs. I didn’t care what I got as long as it was a nice mix, preferably from the 90s. I only saw boxes of packs at tables for two dealers. I was worried that the selection would be weak, but I was pleasantly surprised.
The first dealer’s box was strictly late 80s/early 90s junk – stuff like 1990 Score Football. This wasn’t exacly what I wanted, but it was at least a big variety. I picked up 20 packs for $5. The second dealer’s box had just about everything – rack packs, non-sports, and stuff from the late 80s to around 2005 or so. I passed on the Pocahontas packs but went crazy on everything else. I got around 25 packs for $5. With admission, I dropped a total of $15.
The three pictures below show what I got. There is some duplication, but I have plenty of material for my Monday pack rips until next spring.
This batch is mostly from dealer #1.
This batch is mostly from dealer #2.
This is a mix of non-baseball stuff from both dealers.
