|Laura in a mud flat|
My wife and I went out hiking yesterday morning in the Emiquon National Wildlife Refuge. A little windy, a little cool, but it was certainly time well spent with the love of my life.
On the way back to P-town we stopped at a garage sale which advertised sports cards and collectibles. From what I could tell the guy was a former brick and mortar store owner. He possessed a couple of nice display cases and he had plenty of vintage from the 60's and 70's for sale. Unfortunately, everything was listed at Beckett prices, which doesn't really fit my budget.
I did find his quarter box though and I picked up one active Cub and some 1989 Starting Lineup Baseball Greats cards.
First, the Baseball Greats:
Below he have Eddie, Hammerin' Hank, Charlie Hustle, J.B., The Sultan of Swat, The Ironman, Yaz and the Yankee Clipper.
Saved the best for last! Here's Sweet Swingin' and Mr. Cub.
And now the Cub:
It's been a while since I've found any cards at a garage sale, let alone something I'd want to purchase. Between the hiking and the cardboard it was a nice day!
