Okay go ahead and make your guess below for the contest.
What was the total cost of the “Dealer Buy Out”? First to guess it wins a prize. If no one does (which I am expecting) then the closest first. It’s only numbers throw some in.
FINALLY, I get to win the big prize. And I'll be first to say Happy birthday, unless someone is typing up their comment right now and beats me to the publish button.ReplyDelete
And you cgot a couple fine additions for your binder. I am sure Jennifer Tilly has cards in Americana and that poker set that was released a few years back.
Hmm.. I'll take a guess and say 3500.ReplyDelete
