I bought cards from six different vendors. My two favorites and four new guys two of which I bought because I felt bad for them. I'll explain that when I post their cards. I am going to have a few weeks worth of posts from this show. I contemplated having a theme for all 6 vendors "DEAL OR NO DEAL". I believe it is fitting title for all six purchases.
Tonight I will begin with my favorite dealer, Fred. I spent $80.00 on items with him.
This is a "short" Carvel comic book from 1976. Short in actual size and in pages.
Mickey Mantle. Yee Haw! Right off the bat Fred told me those are $10.00 each. I usually just go through his stuff regardless of value, get what I want and let him tell me a price which is always very agreeable at the end.
The back covers are different.
This scan is just to show the size compared to standard size card. $20.00 down.
The remaining $60.00 I spent with Fred was done how we usually do things. Fred normally has a bunch of cheap boxes and 1 glass case for the higher value cards. I grabbed up a stack of 60 or so cards from the glass case. And then hit up the only other box he had. It was mainly relic/auto/serial numbered cards box.
I pulled about 25 cards from here. There is that Sanchez card that Fuji needs. Those are the only relics I grabbed. The rest were PC guys so I won't bore you with all of them just some highlights.
yes, that a Sheffield auto and a pair of the Christmas cards!
I will show one of the guys I grabbed because he doesn't show up here on my blog often.
Yes, I'm a Tebow fan, always have been. I have no idea why some of his baseball cards carry such a high premium. Maybe it is just in Florida I don't know. Some of his cards go for some major cabbage. The 2017 Topps Pro Debut, just 1 on ComC it's on sale for a cool $175.50.
Typically a lot of the baseball cards from the glass case (player stacks) are $3.00 and up cards. Fred generally charges me a buck a piece. All in all I got the 2 comics, and 85 cards all for $80.00....
Deal or NO deal?
