One thing I really like about Bill, my go-to dealer at the monthly card show, is that while he's friendly and will joke around with everybody, he's never up in a customer's face trying to make a sale. There are other dealers that are immediately in your shit like, "Can I help you find something? Who do you like? You like the Seahawks? Howbout Michael Jordan? I've got a Joe Montana rookie that's real sharp." It's like, back off, bro! Just greet me with a little smile and nod and let me check out what you've got. If I have questions, I'll ask. Granted I'm definitely an introvert, but I tend to keep my distance from in-your-face dealers.. trying to catch a quick glimpse at what they've got without them latching their talons into me.
Let's bust out the rest of my pickups from Bill's quarterboxes that I plan to hang onto. (Still a trade bait post to come.) This will be quick.
Gold Miggy, throwback McCutchen, purple Giancarlo, A-Rod /1989, and Greinke 1st Edition.
Jenkins and Killebrew numbered out of /1000, with Bob Gibson being a hair more scarce at /999.
Fisk /400. I bet the facsimile auto on the Tom Seaver has caused many a double-take. It's /750. Glavine. Schmidt.
Finally, a couple cards numbered to 100. Roberto Alomar 54/100. Andre Dawson 61/100.
That's it! Nothing too amazing, but for 25 cents each, sure.
Thanks for reading.
