Dime Braves

When I was a kid pay phones cost a dime. I remember when they went to a quarter, and then to a quarter plus a dime. Well, those days are long gone. Fortunately, we can still find dime boxes, and fortunately for me with Braves in them.

That Smoltz Leaf top right corner is a black parallel.

I definitely found some gold in them thar boxes.

I did get some other "stuff" from the show, but saving those for other posts.

One of those Smoltz' are the gold version. It's hard to tell in the scan.

All in all I pulled 136 Braves needs from the box. I also grabbed another 23 Braves I needed for the set builds.  I enjoyed the card show, but enjoyed dinner with my daughter Hunter more. It was her birthday dinner as today she turned  the big 20.


  1. Sounds like a great time all around - and a nice bunch of Braves. Good variety.

  2. Pay phones? What are those? Lol. I remember the 10¢ days as well.
