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.

South Bend Pick Ups

Just a quick post as I've been under the weather for a few days. Head cold kind of symptons but I think I'm on the other side of it. I worked through it and if you know me I don't get much sleep so last night I crashed around 11 pm. I woke up at 7 this morning and chilled in my recliner for an hour before falling asleep again and sleeping until almost noon. I'm sure that helped me heal a little faster since I generally get less than 5 hours sleep on work nights.

I have 2 posts to get to in the next few days, todays and I received a Christmas package. I got it logged in and all today (once I finally got up) so I just have to do the post. I have a show tomorrow so you'll probably get that one on Sunday.

Today's post are just a couple of cards I picked up at the last show we did in South Bend. I got bored towards the end of the show and walked around. I hit a couple of dollar boxes and started pulling a bunch out but then I decided I didn't want to spend that much so I put back everything but a couple cards that I decided were the better cards for me.

I grabbed this Caris LeVert from the guy set up next to us. He's been by us a couple of times in South Bend. He graduated from Purdue so we've talked about that since my son turned down Purdue to go to Purdue/Ft. Wayne. He had a couple of cards I looked at but this was the only I decided that I had to have because as much as I hate having to buy all these color parallels, I really like the looks of them. I paid a buck for it.

I always have to pick up Paul Konerko cards that I don't have so this was a nice find. I wasn't keen on paying $2 but I don't generally ask for a discount when I'm only buying 1 card and this was a fairly new dealer, we've talked before but nothing for very long so I don't know him that well. It was PK that I didn't have so I didn't care about paying $1 more than it's probably worth. When I logged it in, I realized I didn't even the base so there's probably 50 color parallels as well so more to chase I guess. This card is my 760th card of PK.

We're doing a show in Fort Wayne tomorrow so I may get to see my son, he usually tries to stop by since he's living there now.

Sorry about the word verification, but blogger sucks at filtering out the comments as of late. As bad as their last update is.
