This blog is about sports cards. I tend to only purchase cheap items so don't come hear expecting to see big money cards. My teams collections are Chicago White Sox and Michigan Wolverines. I also have a bunch of player collections.

Card show #3

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.


  1. I just now realized that these were different posts about the same show. At first I was thinking that you went to 3 different shows. And I was jealous.

  2. LOL. I wish, they only have about 3 a year here.
