We actually had a really nice card show here this weekend, much larger in scope than the typical 3 dealer monthly shows in this area. I only went because the show was in a location that was different than the usual haunts, and didn't go in with much in the way of expectations.
Turned out to be a good show for me, and I walked away with a nice variety of high-end-ish cards, and a budget friendly purchases.
Today I'll show the cheap cards. I found a dealer from Tulsa that I'd never bought from before, and had a blast going through his 5,000 count boxes. At 8 for $1 they weren't technically dime box cards, but close enough:
These were all purchased for my ever growing sampler album. I started the sampler album this year when I realized I'd never complete every set Topps made. However, I thought it would be cool to have an album with one page dedicated to each year. Once a page is full, I'll swap out blah cards for mediocre cards, then mediocre cards for good cards, then good cards for great cards until I have a page of 9 awesome cards from each flagship set from 1952 to the present.
These cards, plus some others that I didn't bother to scan only set me back $5. Tomorrow I'll show the more expensive cards, at least, compared to these.
