This past Monday I took advantage of a day off from work and a couple of hours of free time and managed to hit a card show at the Holiday Inn in Mansfield, MA. I had attended just once before, in fact it was the very first card show I hit up when I returned to collecting back in 2007. I made out pretty well that first time, but I'll save that post for another day. This past week's show I would say was a relative success. I still find that the best deals to be had on big name cards always seem to be online. When it comes to bargains though, the show was great. I purchased close to 100 cards for a grand total of $17 plus my $2 admission fee. About 50 of those cards were plucked from a dime box. I'm not going to bombard you with 50 scans in a single post, so I'll break it up into 5 posts of 10 cards a piece. Here are the first 10, in no particular order:
Not bad for a buck, huh?
