Last April, I started on a vintage basketball card project. The basic idea was that an old-school basketball set would be more interesting to me than whatever Topps and Upper Deck were (and are) churning out in the baseball and hockey realms. I decided to tackle the 1971-72 Topps basketball set, but only got as far as posting my first two cards before I lost focus.
Well, I did actually make some progress on this project at the Columbus Day card show I attended last year. This will probably end up being the last show I attend in quite some time, as I only made it up there every couple of years even before the word pandemic was added to our daily vocabulary.
Anyway, that day I found a seller with seven cards from the release in really great shape, and I took them all home for a combined price of $8. Let's see the new additions that I hauled in for just a hair over a dollar per...
So, that wraps up the haul from my last card show, and gets me up to 9 cards total in my lone vintage basketball quest. It'll be some time before I make much more headway here given the circumstances, but I'm patient and this was going to be a long-term project anyway.
Thanks for stopping by, and I'll be back with something more in my standard wheelhouse for my next post!
