I brought 60 bucks to the card show. Then I spent 90. Gotta feed the monkey....
I'm building quite the Don Mossi collection.
That Derrek Lee RC is a Super Refractor #/100. Mr. Lee's career is long and distinguished, so for a quarter, this was a bargain. That's a Javy Lopez rookie, and I recently pulled that Babe Ruth card in the form of a reprint, so getting the original for a dollar was a no-brainer.
I just can't pass up a Dave Justice pun nor that Will Clark mini for a quarter. I learned from Curb Your Enthusiasm that Joe Pepitone is Larry David's favorite player. Anna K belongs in my "Hot Chicks" collection....and my heart.
These are all cards I've spotted on other blogs that caught my eye. I only had seven, so to fill that eighth spot, that's a drawing of a fish birthday party (it is up for trade, lucky reader).
Now, it's Griffey time!
Oh, man. That was good, huh? Here's my favorite scores of the day:
1995 Leaf Slideshow #8B. I already have 8A, so this was a welcome find. And that Pinnacle Zenith card is an "Injured All-Star" Tribute card. It looks better IRL.
This vendor would not negotiate. He wanted hi Beckett for everything. After explaining to him what COMC and eBay are, I finally got him to sell me this one and a handful of other not-terribly-valuable Griffeys for still more than I wanted to pay. Worth it, though. Love this card.
And here's the piece de resistance. One guy had dozens of Griffey memorabilia cards, and I went through every one. This was the best. A batting glove with a little wear on it. How sweet is that?
I think I came home with as many cards for other bloggers as I did for me. I'll have to start assembling another round of trade packages soon.
Good luck with your respective Mondays!
