Every once in a blue moon the "old" mall in town has a baseball card show. It is advertised as a thirty table show with free admission, which isn't in itself a bad deal. The downside is there are usually three or four dealers that occupy about twelve tables. No matter. I try to make it out and see what kind of deals I can uncover when I can.
Lately, I've been on a vintage kick. Exhibit A:
This one I picked up with one of my favorite Giants blogger in mind. A 1968 Topps Playing Card of Mr. Willie Mays. Again, another card in "well-loved" condition, but what's not to like?
The 1972 Mays card, below, I'm keeping for my own collection. $3? I'm pretty happy with that deal.
Karl Olson! This 1954 beauty, in pretty darn good condition, was found in a dollar bin. Of course I had to rescue him!
Karl, Greg, and Gregg Olson at card shows when I was younger. He liked collecting cards of players that shared our surname.
TribeCards from Outer Space Giveaway Thingy.
A bought a few other items at the show, but most everything else is already in trade packages and will hopefully add a few smiles to the faces of the recipients.
Thanks for stopping in today to check out my card show finds.
