The card show today was a bit of a bust. The main discount bins I frequent weren't really discounted.. they were standard dollar bins. Later, I did ok in the dimeboxes. But today's post features the $20 worth of cards from the dollar bins.
I love cheap vintage. Here we have some 1954 Bowman and a Fleer. I like to bring home a Hoyt from each card show, but today I had to bend the rules a little bit and go with Waite instead of Wilhelm.
Love the trivia question here. Wow, back then one decade between .400 averages was a big deal. It's now been over 7 decades.
Some vintage Willie Mays oddballs.
Bob Gibson and Al Kaline.
A couple #'d cards of Giancarlo Stanton.
Here are some more numbered, shiny cards. Darvish, Kaline, C. Davis, Kershaw.
Here are the backs of those previous cards. I'm bummed Yu is out for the year.
Some neat, yet unnumbered, modern cards. Trout, Gallo, purple Gyorko, Puig diamond king.
Here are the final two cards. I had bought that same Clemente "prospect" card from the same dealer a few months back, but realized it was creased when I got home. So now I've upgraded to a better copy. (Anybody want the creased copy?) And that Lance Berkman bat relic was picked up as trade bait, as I thinned out much of my tradable Astros on a recent package to Bru, so figured I'd pick up something.
That's it for the dollar cards. If these were 50 cents each, I'd be more stoked on this purchase (and would have bought more cards), but still, not bad. Again, I did better in the dimeboxes, which I'll show off another day this week.
Thanks for reading.
