But today, let's celebrate the newer cards. As always, some of these finished off team sets while others go directly into the player collections.
The first table I stopped at was manned by a guy from South Carolina. I have talked to this gentleman at two past shows -- both the one in Roswell/North Fulton and the one in McDonough -- and each time I was able to pull some great cards from his dime boxes. This time was no different, so let's go to the cheap seats first!
How about a dime for a Topps Chrome Refractor, to start?
And a couple of Opening Day PC Parallel types too:
I finished off my Topps Chrome Brewers team set too. I didn't scan them, but they were all dimeboxers as well.
He also had a great $0.25 box that turned into 6 for $1. From that box, I snagged a couple of Brewers from Bowman Chrome:
|Regular chrome...I think this was a dime card|
|SN8/150 -- an eBay 1/1 for being|
his uniform number!
|Purple Paper Parallel|
The Garza is also an eBay 1/1 for being serial numbered 72/75 -- the same as his ERA!
My next stop were the quarter-boxes of another seller whose table I stop at frequently. The box yielded a few Brewers I needed and some that I'm not sure if I needed or not...I guessed that for a quarter I wouldn't mind having a double:
Yes, Molitor is a Blue Jay looking skyward to a Twin on that Pinnacle Card, but I needed it for his player collection.
My last stop at which I purchased Brewers was Frank Moiger's table. Frank is the guy who organizes and promotes the two shows on the north side of Atlanta near where I live -- the North Fulton Sports Collectibles Show and the East Cobb Sports Collectibles Show. I have been meaning to get to the other show in Marietta, but this month that was not going to happen.
Despite the fact that Frank is a big-time Tennessee Volunteer fan, I like him anyway. He always has vintage boxes with commons and some stars set up for set builders, and this time he had a binder with some random relics in them. In addition to a bunch of older Braves cards, this time I got a few Brewers cards from him:
|The most expensive of the Brewers I got|
And, for $3 (or, rather, as part of the transaction with a represented cost of $3) I picked up this fashionable swatch.
This is just the appetizer, though.
Thanks for reading!
