|Zimmer's backside. Hehe.|
Some people eat when they're depressed, I buy cardboard. Whatever.
I planned to just pick up a couple packs of Opening Day, which came out earlier this week, but the owner had some new vintage to show off. What caught my eye first was a complete set of 1952 Bowman, including the Mantle. Wow.
I moved down the row of glass cases and found something in my price range. 1961 and 1962 cards from Post cereal boxes! I picked up some to throw into trade packages, but maybe there's someone out there looking to complete a set? Most of the cards are in the one to three dollar range and are in decent condition. There are some pricier stars as well: including but not limited to Banks, Mantle, and Mays. I'd be happy to check for players or certain numbers from the two sets if you have interest. Just let me know!
While I was there I also picked up a card of Manny Ramirez in a Cubs' uniform, albeit the Iowa Cubs. I've always been a fanny of Manny, even when he was being Manny.
Lastly, please allow me to cram in an Ebay purchase into this post. I love shiny and I LOVE Cubs prospects.
