Card Show stuff and my 1,000th post

Here are the most of the goodies I picked up a couple weeks back at the Jax. card show. Except for the "new to me" Braves and a few other things. Those will be another post.

These teams sets, yes team sets. The extras outside of my PC's will go into the trade box.

FOUR.... consecutive years of Drakes! All in all there were 1 or 2 missing  from 3 of the 4 sets.

This one was complete.  Kind of reminds me of those Squirt cards.

Just showing 1st and last of each grouping. Again almost complete missing like 4 cards. This comes in handy for the PC guys that don't have a card yet, lol. Yes, breaking all of these up into the PC's.
Everything seen above came for FREE, so to speak as part of that Kellogg's deal.

One of my favorite vendors had a slew of these from all sports. I grabbed up all of the baseball even though some are mere trade fodder. The Cimoli didn't come from show. When I got to Valdosta, one of my Uncle's caregivers found it in a box she was going through and put it on my desk.  I used it here to show the size of the BIG cards.

The years ranged from 77-80.

HMM, do I put it with Morgan or with Garvey? Wait, is that Fisk too, I can't tell.  Decisions decisions.

There is a "play at the plate" for you, sort of.

Non PC guy, but it will work for the "Signing" mini collection.

I scanned these so you could see the cool "lingo" on the back, get it lingo. I didn't even realize this was going to be my 1000th post, until I published it (I had to sneak back in and edit).

Have a great night!
