LCS trip

This past weekend, I got around to finally buying some binders and pages and got all my PC cards all booked and on a shelf.  I was pretty pumped about that.  I’ve been wanting to do it for awhile now so it’s nice that it’s finally done.  My White Sox collection is split between 2 binders and all my Player collections and my Michigan collection are in another.

Stopped by my LCS, he had a bunch of quarter boxes out so I went through those before checking out the higher priced cards.  I came across some trade bait that I couldn’t pass up at $.25, that will be the next post.  While I didn’t manage to come across a whole lot of White Sox cards until the very end, the ones I did find were pretty sweet.  Check them out.

1975 TCMA 1919 Chicago White Sox, all these were the boxes so I grabbed all of them.  I think I had one before this purchase, I didn’t bother checking my have list since it was only 1 and a quarter.  I still haven’t looked, I will when I put them away in the binders.

I went over to his showcase which is relatively small considering cards are just a side business for him, didn’t see much but I did get this pretty cheap.

It’s got some issues, but they are issues I can deal with for the price.  A 1959 Topps Early Wynn.  I was about to head over to check out and saw some some small count boxes that were labeled and some other boxes I didn’t recognize so I checked those out.  Wasn’t much there but I came across this set for $1.99.

I know most card collector’s love this set so how could I pass this up.  I bought one and took out all my Sox cards.

Those will go in my Sox binder.  Why would I break the set up you ask?  Well for one, I figured I could use the rest of the cards as trade bait, so if you want some or if your trying for the set, let me know.  If you want a certain team, let me know.  Just note that this is only the first 330 cards, not the entire set.  And reason number two.  Because I purchased 2 sets.  The set doesn’t fit into my collection, but really, how could I pass it up at only $1.99.  But, like I said, it doesn’t fit into my collection so I will probably trade it away or use it for a contest prize.  I haven’t decided which yet.  So if your interested in this set, let me know as well.

So I walked away with 12 vintage cards for my Sox collection and 2 full sets (15 of 1 set goes into my Sox collection) all for $13 and some change.  Also some oddball cards for some of you.  I’ll have a trade post tomorrow and feature some of those so be sure to check those out.

I’m thinking that was a good day for me.
