More from the card show

This group of cards are all PC guys, just not the vintage kind.

All of tonight's cards came from 2 vendors.

I'm pretty sure I overpaid for all of them.

They either cost .50 or a buck each. Now that Roy Face card was a good deal. It is a certified autograph, just the autograph is faded big time. It shows better here scanned than in hand. I love those National trading card day cards too (for some reason).

All a buck each. You can tell 7 of the 9 are Samples.

Love it when they are stamped samples on the back too.

I hope everyone had a fantastic Thanksgiving!

The last from this show is tomorrow....... And it ain't baseball cards...........mmmmh what?

No sense hiding them.

One of the BEST deals if not the best deal of the entire card show happened a good 3 hours into the show.

And happened by chance because I was way done hitting up my go to vendors and I didn't really feel like driving back to Valdosta yet.

So I was putzing along from table to table thumbing around.


I seen one of the regular dealers with some binders on the table with a handwritten sign .25 each.

Not the binders of course, but the cards inside. After perusing the first 4 and ehh, I realized the bottom one was opened up and was Kellogg's....All Kellogg's.

Yep, I grabbed the whole darn book and handed it to the dealer (whom I have purchased from in the past). He was shaking his head at me (with a grin). After all, they do know me pretty well, he said that's been my best seller all day long.

I asked how much for the whole binder. he quickly thumbed through counting the pages not looking at players and said $Give me $25.  DONE!

I wished I had been at that table first, so NONE would be missing.

Apparently it started with every complete set.

In case you haven't figured it out yet I am going backwards.

Notice how crisp these are.

I did remove the 81 set out before scanning as I recently posted about opening a sealed factory set.

These are almost as good of condition too.

Almost as good. LOL.

Yeah, still some big names and a lot of them too.

Lots of them.

Just look at these babies.

Without a doubt, my best deal of the day.

So yeah the early 70's were gone by the time I made my way to that table (3 hours late).

But can you believe UNcracked 70's Kellogg's for what turned out to be .085 cents a piece. I did throw a couple in my Braves team builds too and you've already seen them.

Card Show Stuff

In was so wiped out last night, I didn't do much other than read a couple of blogs and called it a night. As for the card show goodies..... not really stuff, cards.

I loaded up big time on 66 & 67's. For now these 9 will suffice.

Other vintage goodies. I'm still a bit tired, so I will leave off here tonight, but tomorrow whoa Nellie, and not Fox either. You'll just have to come back and see... hehehehehe.

Don't use this service for video giveaways! Use Multi-Round Giveaways instead 
You have randomized this list 3 times.

See, I'm nuts.   Bo you're the winner! I'm not surprised though. I figured it would be you (30 entries), Fuji (30), Gavin (29), or Mark (26). Congrats, thanks for playing, and for your patience.

Cardboard time:

How about the vintage Braves for the team sets,

and the modern day Braves mixed in just a little bit.

Get, rather see the "little" PUN.  One of the Newcomb variations.

Believe it or not, this group was part of a bad deal, paid too much.

These too.

So that's the new to me Braves.  We'll be looking at some 60's cards Monday.

November News

Okay, I've been "out of town" all week. Seems funny saying that as I went home. It was great being home, but another "mess" so to speak that I will not burden y'all with. I will randomize all those entries for the one contest and declare a winner in tomorrows' post. And the Winner for the closest without going over was...........Jon with 957.00 And yes even that was way low ( there were several Mantles in there). Remember this was a very bad trip.  Jon, send me a penny sleeve with your address in it, just kidding, and email will work.

Now I made a couple of great deals at the November Card Show in Jax, and I made a couple of bad ones.

Yeah, that's a lot of Judge and Bellinger including a variation of each... Those other 2 are also variations that are available.  I picked up 2/3 of Update set including those above and handful of inserts too for $25.00.  Obviously 1 of the good deals. I have since finished the update set. Finuto!

More card show goodies tomorrow.

Phase 2 trip cards canceled sort of...... read on.

Looking at the scans for the "extras" same number of scans, looks like the same pics from the previous run. I am confused as to how this happened.

Or maybe it could be that I've scanned these cards at least 3x, and they all look the same, but either way, I think the scans are the same so I am just going to show this one scan and call it a day. I have about 75 cards sitting in the stack of "extras" so I know it can't be right. I plan on sending the winner some cards from those 75. So get your comment in, this is the last post from that horrendous trip. Now for extra fun (separate contest):  Whoever guesses the correct amount of what I spent on the "trip cards" rather the closest without going over wins some cards too. Keep in mind The non super star doubles I never posted and there were a lot. I will leave that contest open til "post-time" Wednesday night.

Good morning all!

Phase I part 2 PC trip cards

Let' the look at the other half of the dupes heading to the PC binders, err boxes.

That first Aaron looks like it was someones wallet card.

One might ask......There are 2 of those stroke out leaders, why? Because Carlton and Ryan are PC guys, 1 each. LOL.

A Winfield RC! You know what's sad about all of these wonderful pieces of cardboard? I may not even need them. I'm sure I need most of them, but that still leaves a lot that will be just sitting in a box for a long while not doing anybody any good.

But as a guy whose glass is always half full, never empty they will one day make great trade bait.

The 75's scan and upload so fast, must be all that color.

I really dig the Burger King Reggie, he looks a little spaced out.

Next time you see most of these cards it will be the EXTRAS that I know I don't need. Some of them will be heading to the winner of this long drawn out contest. I considered not showing those, but it will also give me a chance to show some trade bait, so guess what's next? Right the extras and the last chances to get an entry to the contest.
