A few weeks ago now I had the good fortune to attend a local card show. I posted the first portion of my spoils earlier this month, time to wrap it up with the rest today. Today's round of pick-ups is brought to you by the woman I've begun to affectionately refer to (at least in my head) as the "Dollar Box Grandma".
I've purchased cards from her at least once before, so I probably should know her name at this point, but I don't. All I know is she's easily 70 years old, and she's got some discount boxes.
Of course, I hit the dollar boxes as well. There are only a couple 2,000ct monster boxes of cards priced at a buck per, but there are some real deals to be had. Again, the majority of what I picked up are cards destined for others but I did okay for myself too.
I'm very pleased with the cards I came home with from this last show, and even more pleased that I ended up with a ton of good stuff to share with other collectors. Some of that has already made its way out, others will be shipped in the near future. Hopefully I'll have a chance to dig through these boxes again soon!
One of those collectors - I owned my first baseball card 44 years ago. I've been collecting off and on ever since, and for about 35 of those years, I'd consider myself a baseball ...
