Second Stop On The Six State Tour

I'll be getting to the National haul posts soon, I promise, but for now, I'm going in chronological order.  In the last two weeks, my trading buddy Stuart and I traveled through eight states like I said.  We bought cards in six of them.  The same day we stopped by the Red Cedar Antiques store in Lansing, Michigan, we also went by Extra Innings to see the owner Rick.  He's right off route 127 in Mason.

Rick had some nice football single stock, so I raided the 1995 Topps...

Also found some of the last '76 and '91 Topps, plus a 1995 SP need.

Then I moved on to hockey.  Some decent names in 75-76 and a couple off the '81-82's.

And finally, he had pulled me some 2007 Heritage short prints too.  Zim is a yellow name variation.

I got to pick from some exclusive stuff too, but you'll see those on another blog.


  1. How many cards are you away from completing the '76 football set?

  2. Nice to see that Extra Innings is still there. I used to stop in there occasionally about 10 years ago when my wife (gf at the time) was living nearby. I got some nice stuff for my hockey collection there.

  3. Dang. I thought my SoCal road trip was special. You went to eight different states and bought cards in six of them? That's awesome!

    1. Fuji maybe if you have the time you can join us for the next time the National Convention is in Chicago I'm sure we wouldn't object to having some new adventures

    2. Man... I'd love that. I've thought about hitting up a National for the past 5 or 6 years, but it's not really financially feasible. By the time I get airfare, hotel, transportation, and food... well that's probably 50% of my hobby budget for the year.

      But if any of you end up coming out to the Bay Area... shoot me an email. I'd love to take you out to the flea markets, an A's or Giants game, or maybe even a mall card show.
