I saved the best for last. My player collections and the vintage. I didn’t get much for the player collections, I thought I’d be able to pick up some Paul Konerko’s cheap but I assume since I’m fairly close to Chicago, they jack the prices up so people pay for them. I’ve heard other bloggers complain about this in their LCS.
I was surprised to find some of the vintage in the cheap boxes so I scooped up anything I didn’t have. Which was a pretty good haul. I didn’t take anything that was completely destroyed but none of these are mint either.
I added 2 more Tom Seaver’s (1 was pictured in the oddball pics) and 3 more Konerko’s. I already have the National Baseball Card day card but I picked this one up to add to the other collection. White Sox & Konerko collections both have one now.
These weren’t all the cards I picked up, actually there were 15 more cards but these were the ones I really wanted. As far as the show, I was disappointed by the volume of tables but all I wanted to look for was cheap boxes and I got those. I also just enjoyed talking to the dealers and just talking with people in general about cards. Much like I do with the blogs, but face to face is always nice to. I definitely wasn’t disappointed in the volume of cards I got for $18 either. Next show is in August.
