it's been a while since i've been to a card show. the last time might actually have been when i met up with carl crawford cards at what was a pretty weak show. now that i think about it, it was the show that i grabbed the 1955 topps sandy koufax card. either way, just because i haven't been to a show for while doesn't mean i don't have cards to show from previous visits to one of the monthly gatherings of like minded dealers and collectors.
i've posted a few times about the two vendors with the vintage bargain bins. they both are at the point where they recognize me and will sometimes hand me a vintage dodger card from behind the counter when i approach. case in point, my 1956 topps gil hodges card
one of the dealers knows that condition is not always my biggest concern, and he greeted me at a show last year by telling me he had something that he was sure i would be interested in
why yes, i was very interested in a cheap version of a 1956 topps dodger team card. sharp corners aren't going to make me appreciate the card any more than i do already. world champs!
there are some less heralded cards that i have picked up over the last couple of years that i also appreciate, as they helped me finish off my 1960's dodger team sets. here's a 1961 topps john roseboro
joe moeller's 1964 topps card is also a high number
that's also where i found ron fairly's 1964 topps card
here's one more card i picked up on the cheap - a 1962 topps don drysdale all-star card
