I'm back with a show recap post despite having two blogger trade packages to cover. I usually try to prioritize those but I had this post ready first and it should be easier to just finish it up and then get to the trades.
Anyway, I had another great time, almost two hours worth this time, I believe, digging through boxes at the monthly show a couple Saturdays ago. For whatever reason despite it being early afternoon on a Saturday the place was relatively dead so I had plenty of breathing space and time to look stuff over. I even chatted a bit with a couple other folks going through the quarter boxes, and that was nice.
The final damage this time was 100 quarter cards, 40 dollars, and three that were $2 each. That comes out to $71 and the dealer knocked that down to $60 because he's a dude and seems to like charging me that amount. You know I'll be back next month!
I made a few nice finds in the dollar box but really enjoyed the quarters this time. As usual I didn't get through all of those boxes because there's a ton and my patience runs out before long.
First, here's a quick look at the non-specific trade bait I grabbed:
The Walker, Davis, and Jones have already headed out into TCDB deals, but would you believe these were all quarter cards? There were lots more numbered football inserts I would have picked up if they were dimes. Anyway, I thought those three were amazing for the price--'97 Circa's fun felted Fast Track and a couple versions of Leaf R&S Slideshows. Of the rest the McNown is notable for being #d /5000. Those are available here or on TCDB.Chris doesn't. And I love me some numbered cards of my big PC guys like Maddux, with that Topps Stars above #d /9799.
