August Card Show Haul
I wouldn't say the card show was a total bust, but I definitely don't have much to show. Indeed, I actually spent more time pawing through discount box for other folks than I did on myself. Roger Neufeldt wasn't there, and I wasn't able to find any 1973 Topps or 1960/61 Fleers that I needed with any of the other sellers.
For myself, I found a card game called Authors, the rules of which seem to be the same as Go Fish.
My one sports card pick up for myself was a lot of 12 cards from the 1961 Golden Press issue, a 33 card mini set.
Here is what the back looks like:
The set consists, as mentioned above, of 33 cards, all Hall of Famers. My cursory research indicates that these cards came in a booklet, which explains the perforations you can see on the edge of some of these cards. I have to admit to having a weakness for these types of small vintage sets. As a set builder, it takes me a while to complete a Topps set, what with them having anywhere from 660 to 792 cards. I am generally finishing one set a year. These small issues allow me to get the satisfaction of completing a set more frequently.
So, that is it. I walked out with most of my cash still in my pocket. I'll just have to tuck it away in a drawer until the October two day show, just in case Roger Neufeldt is there.
