(Chinese letter or word) ????
This same dealer had a $1.00 monster box of each sport out and he told me every card in there was at least $4.00 book. I kind of doubt that, but anyways I dug in. He told me if I get at least 10 cards I could have them for .50 each. I grabbed 32. Will post them another time, meanwhile Bob came over seen me digging and told me hey your spending money you need to get those 2 sets (85 Fleer & 85 Donruss) that you set back last month. Crap! Anyway another dealer had a couple of nice Eddie Mathews relic cards I wanted.. a quad bat card and another bat card shaped like "59" that was really cool. I asked him how much, he said $12.00 for the one and $8.00 for the other, but I will let you have them both for $20.00. I looked at him like huh? I said yeah that is what 12 + 8 equals and I walked away. Went over to the next dealer who also know and have bought large amounts of cards from in the past. He had his $1.00 boxes out ten in all. Said they're on sale 4 for buck. Once again, I dig in knowing there are ten 3,000 count boxes to get through. This particular dealer throws pretty much everything into these boxes and doesn't sort them: all sports every box pretty much. Makes it harder on me, but I was up for the challenge. As the day wore on and several breaks later I got through 8 of them pulling 922 cards. Some for some of you, a lot for me. I was tired, hungry, and my back was killing me. David the dealer worked up the total for the 922 cards plus the Clemens 1985 Topps rookie I wanted, threw me 2 autographed team photocards of PC (HOFer and BDay) guy Davey Johnson, marked it down quite a bit adn then knocked off a lot more for 3 vintage posters I had traded him. Done, or so I thought he then threw in the last 2 boxes that I didn't go through. Full of Hockey ( I don't collect them..... so if you live STATESIDE" and have a favorite team let me know. I know Jedi likes the Black Hawks, and Jeff Jones likes the Lightning), there's a lot of football in there too, and a little basketball. I plan on showing a lot of them over the next few months. On my way out, I grabbed five 1957 topps cards from the next dealer table, and nothing from the last one. I felt bad, I just wanted to go home.
I will probably be scanning all day tomorrow, and next weekend too! I do have lots of great stuff to show.
I think I showed these last time. Oops. too late now. (the middle finger with a double jointed pinky hanging out)
