card show claustrophobia
The monthly Portland card show at Mall 205 was bumping yesterday. Bill's bins were packed (see the right side of the photo-- yikes), so I split my time between Lyle the vintage guy (and his 25¢ and 50¢ boxes) and a 50¢ box from a dealer I hadn't bought from before. In all, I got 173 cards, that with final-total discounts, round out to about 32¢ each.
Juan Soto is pretty hot right now. Very surprised to find a serial numbered Soto for cheap with that gold parallel.
Acuña is another young stud on the rise.. figured I should round up a few of his cards.
Still chugging along at my parallel frankenset of 2011 Topps/Chrome. These 4 refractors were needs.
Here are some more cards I bought. The Sanchez features Judge on the other side.
Last year's Stadium Club. Bryce is a Chrome parallel.
2011 Lineage makes an appearance.
Fire, Gallery, and a Griffey Ginter mini.
The bottom row here are all #/99.
Topps HD is sort of a forgotten product these days, but the cards are kinda cool. Sturdy.
And let's close out the post with some 90s stuff. Finding a serial-numbered Caminiti I need makes me especially happy.
I'll do a continuation post on my haul later with the vintage and more.
Thanks for stopping by!
