I headed over to Jacksonville on Saturday. Walked around to see what was there, and wound up at my buddy Fred's table where I spent the remainder of the day. No, I didn't bring home a ton of cards. Right off the bat, Fred handed be a half filled 600 count box of Series 2 Topps. I won't bore anyone with those. I had already p[ut together the series 2 set. Just lacking 1 card Hayes #644. Nope, wasn't in the box. Still I appreciated the box, because I could get my PC guys out of it and put the rest in the trade boxes. Fred charged me $5.00 for them (easily 200 cards). That's just two cents apiece including the super stars. That makes the day a win all by itself, but I picked up something else from Fred.
A blog about the cards I get awesome deals on, cards that I have available to trade, trades and our hobby in general. I collect Braves cards (all of them) and T206 White Borders.

Yep, I went to a card show this weekend
When the day was done, Fred told me to look through another box real quick. I pulled these out, he said they are free. FREE, Game used, Jeter, Brooks, purple, Nolan and Ichiro for free. Yep win. Now onto to the other buy. I looked where Fred usually has odd ball things like the programs I picked up the last two months. None this month.
Obviously the cards above would not have taken 3.5 hours. Fred had the dollar boxes there, this time they were all vintage. So I loaded up with my sheets with me, I pulled cards I needed for set builds. I will post about those by the year. Meanwhile......
