Last night's winner was : Bo
Getting back to the purchases I made a couple of weekends ago now.
Okay all of these came from 1 seller on the back row (I skipped a couple of purchases because they will have their own story to tell.....Big story at least to me. This dealer had about 4 tables 3 of which had glass cases, with a sign on each stating half off prices marked. The Police set above is an example of what the marked prices were and yes that is what I believe a complete set. There are a couple of guys that I could pull out for my PC's which I usually do, but I haven't done so as of now. I may already have them. If there is a Dodger collector reading this that doesn't have this set already let me know.
I scooped up the Babe Ruth special cards (subset if you will) that would make for one of the Owl's newest themes. Although I completed the 82' Topps set, and I think that I have that Ripken RC in the PC too (remember I also grabbed another Ripken RC at this show too) just not positive and I figure you can't have too many of those rookies especially as I paid a whopping $40.00 for everything above. Was that a good deal, I don't know. I felt good about it when I did it, and still do so I guess it's okay.
I also grabbed up a stack of about 100 1984-88 World Wide Sports (basically the beginning of the Conlon Collection sets). I paid $5.00 for those.
They were all series 4 or 5 and I only needed 19 of them (only scanned 18 for obvious reasons). I thought this was complete of ser. 4 and 5, but the big stars had been pulled.
I do have a want list for these listed to the left under the set builds tab and then Conlon. What I really really really need is the last complete set of the actual Conlon sets. That would be nice. 1995 set cards 1321-1430.
Anyway, there are two posts left that each have a story behind them. I will keep the posts short, but to the point so you all get what I went through.
Cool LaSorda. I am just that "Twilight Years" and one other from the whole Ruth subset. In horrible condition. I'll get there someday.ReplyDelete
Gotta love a good Lasorda card!ReplyDelete
Love the Ripken rookie! That one is probably worth the money you paid by itself.ReplyDelete
Yup I have the full '83 Police set. Look me up if you come across one from '88 or '90 (also missing a handful from '86 and '87).ReplyDelete
That's a good deal, especially since if you have that Ripken already, shouldn't be hard to flip it to a blogger or someone on TCDB.
I'm so far behind updating my PC's I won't know for a long time.Delete
The Conlon cards are so cool, as are the Ruth cards. Great deal when you can ass a Ripken RC.ReplyDelete
Good Job! 👍
Someday I want that Ripken rookie...ReplyDelete
Nice haul! The Ripken RC is great stuff.ReplyDelete
As always, a good bunch of cards. Those World Wide Sports are especially nice.ReplyDelete
I've really come to appreciate Conlon Collection in recent years. Lots of players/managers in that World Wide set didn't appear on cards for any other company. Can't say I've seen any of the 1995 set/extension. Hope you're able to find them.ReplyDelete
Nice pickups, as long as you feel good about the purchase it's still a good buy.ReplyDelete
That Dodgers police set is really cool. Just looked it up on COMC and it contains some cards with really nice action shots.ReplyDelete
The WWS card were a pretty neat find. I've never seen a single one at a show. $5 for 100 seems like a really good deal too. You could never find them online that cheap.ReplyDelete
Police sets are fun but those Conlons are fantasticReplyDelete
