Had an amazing day today! This was the first card show that I've been to in close to a decade & even though it was just a small show it reminded me how much fun I used to have going to them. I miss the days when the little town I live in used to have monthly shows. What made this one even better than any other was getting the opportunity to meet a fellow member of SCF. That member was BSEBALLCOMMISH75. We've done a few trades already on the site & have already made plans to attend the National this coming July in Chicago.
This visit just gave us a chance to trade face to face, which is how this hobby all started for me some 35 years ago.
He got the added bonus of making his table cost back from the show plus some. He brought me some well needed pieces for my PC as well. Including the following:
1993 Ted Williams Card Company #7
1995 Jimmy Dean All Time Greats #6
2008 Upper Deck Heroes Charcoal #187
2008 Upper Deck Heroes Emerald #177
Plus an added bonus Carl Yastrzemski Highlight Reel DVD
I also walked the tables & picked up the following:
1964 Topps Sox Sockers #182
1975 Topps Mini #205
1993 Spectrum Diamon Club #1
2005 Donruss Diamond King #HH34
2010 Topps Cards Your Mother Threw Out #CMT9
Thanks for inviting me Stuart! I had a great time!
It did put me one more percentage point higher towards reaching my goal as a SuperCollector of Yaz, now sitting at 12.4%
Thanks for the read!
