Pre-Nat Show Loot

I've neglected posting my haul from the mid-year Chantilly show.  This show was just a couple weeks before Chicago happened.  You may be sick of me showing my purchases of mass quantities after the National and Michigan Tour 2.0. Just confirms that I have no life otherwise, especially this year. :)

My usual show attire includes dark blue cargo pants with big pockets so I can carry around all this and still look for more.


Still doesn't look like a whole lot until you sort it and spread it out.

Unfortunately, I don't have closer pictures or scans of the '50 Bowman, '63 Fleer, or some of the other good stuff.  Since it's been so long since I got these (mid-July), and that's the stuff that's most fun to put away, they're already integrated into their sets.  I could do a "state of the set" post if you want to see what I have so far on those....

I did upgrade a few team checklists, and remembered that Minnie was in bad shape too.  Turns out I had already swapped my set checklists, so these are available.  Didn't find the second one (132-295), but if you need any of the others, let me know.

More '74 upgrades and some additions to my '70 set.  Some great markdowns from a dealer named Dave Estright.  Didn't have as much success the second time around at his 90% boxes at the Nat.  But if you haven't been through them the first time, it's worth checking out.

Always love the space program, and this was a great find from Mulk's Sports Cards from just west of here.  This is a combination of the 1969 and 1970 Man In The Moon sets.  It was half off at $25, just missing three cards.  I've since found a couple of them and upgraded a few more.

And finally, a few from the "guilty pleasure" section, namely wrestling Divas.  There are several base cards of the gorgeous love Paige, and a bonus autograph of scarlet-coiffed hottie Eva Marie.

I promise I'm going to try to put together more posts on the philosophical or whimsical side rather than "look what else I got!" for a while, I swear....


  1. Nice Minnie you have there. :)

  2. Love that Minnie! It's crazy to think that he stepped up to the plate at 54 years of age. I'm about 10 years younger than him and there are days I barely roll out of bed.
