Another month, another card show! Though I hadn't planned on it at the start of the year, I've now I attended five shows this year, with pretty good results.
With Gibraltar Trade Center's imminent demise in Taylor, I went to a different location in the same city to a show promoted by some of the same regulars from Gibraltar (and I'm glad to see they landed on their feet). The new place is called the Taylor Town Trade Center, a bit north of the old place. It's more like a smaller indoor flea market in a strip mall, but it's less rednecky and lacks the cigarette stench of Gibraltar, so despite being much smaller, it has its pluses.
I arrived late-ish last Sunday so I didn't have a lot to choose from, and I actually only bought stuff from one seller, a former Gibraltar regular. I hit his quarter and $0.50 boxes hard then added a couple singles for a grand total of just $20. The vast majority of that went to low-end stuff for trade packages (I hope y'all like Refractors!) while the next biggest bunch can be seen on TMM tonight. Meanwhile, here's a quick look at two cards I grabbed for PCs I feature here at last week's show:
Mark Hoyle sent it to me in his second package back in August. Oh well, it was just a quarter, and I'm happy to have two, or if anyone needs a copy I'll be happy to PWE it their way!
Watch for some new trade packages featuring stuff from this show in the future!
