Like a Moth to a Porch Light

So, I went back to the show to look through Roger Neufeldt's 1977 boxes and went a little wild. I ended up getting 43 cards for my 1977 set, but after seeing how cheaply I can get vintage cards if I don't obsess about quality, I started pawing through the discount boxes again. My Sunday haul included:

  1. 12 more 1956 crds

  2. 3 1952 cards

  3. Another 1973 Roberto Clemente

  4. A 1975 Kellogg's 3-D Super Star Reggie Jackson

I had saved up some and had $220 with me and I walked out with $25 in my pocket. Now, if you will excuse me, I have some honey-dos to take care of in order to stay out of the dog house.


  1. I'm very familiar with that doghouse. Good luck, and I hope you post pics of your cards!

  2. I've always wanted to do the "go back to the second day of the card show" thing. The only problem is I never have any more money after the first day of the card show.

  3. You woulda crapped, Night Owl. There was a guy wheeling and dealing. He offered me a binder of around 400 1971 cards, including Munson, Nolan Ryan, and about 20 high number cards for $300. But, it was not in my budget without consulting with my wife and the show was about over, so I had to walk.
