so, i went to the big card show last night. no mr. mint, but there were a lot of people who were there to have things authenticated. i found that strange. i was there before the doors opened so it wasn't crowded at all. there were dealers from all over the midwest, including a guy i have bought from before who hails from indiana. he fulfilled my goal of picking up a 1959 topps sandy koufax
which completed my 1964 topps dodger team set. i was on a roll. i also completed my 1961 topps dodger team set by picking up this 1961 topps nl strikeout leaders card featuring both koufax and don drysdale
will go to jacobmrley towards his rookie cup quest, and this one goes to captain canuck.
i should have scanned the front - clyde king has some serious charles nelson reilly glasses. i picked up a couple of things for some other folks too, so watch your mail.
i also picked up a card that wasn't on my want list, but had to be had thanks to the price and the double play on the front
yes, it's beat up, but i wouldn't have a 1956 yankee card be any other way.
i also completed my 1973 topps set (assuming that i get the cards i ordered last week in the mail) and picked up some other cards as well. all in all it was a good run through without having to deal with the autograph crowds that i'm sure are there today and will be there tomorrow.
