Card Show Results

Found my way down to the card show at the South Tacoma Antique Mall. I guess my only experiences of card shows were from when I was about 9 or 10 years old, Beckett used to print the card show schedule listed by states in the back of the baseball price guide, so my father would take my brother and me to those every once in a while. We would go to the one at the "Hudson House Inn" in Hudson, WI. A big banquet hall sort of room with probably 50 or so tables.
Well, this one had 12 tables, and although the prices of these cards has gone up a bit, it was still fun, and I only exceeded my budget by $4.00, so I was happy with that. Here's what I found...

2002 Flair Greats Bat Rack Classics Mathews/Molitor/Yount #'d (186/300)
2008 Upper Deck #99-JH J.J. Hardy jersey

2004 Leaf Century Collection #119 Robin Yount (#'d 246/250)
2005 UD Legendary Cuts #LE-PM Paul Molitor

2005 UD Classic Materials #MA-RY Robin Yount

And the pride and joy of this trip, the one that made the 1 hour drive, $4 Tacoma Narrows Bridge toll, and dangerous yet exciting excursion to the "South Side" of Tacoma well worth it...

2001 Donruss Elite Back 2 Back Jacks #BB-36 Yount/Molitor dual-bat (#'d 25/50)

I really like the blog! Great job with it! I was wondering if you would be interested in making some trades, but I cannot find a contact line for you. My email is steelertim12276@hotmail.com. Keep up the good job!

Pretty sweet pick ups.
There has not been a show in UT in the three years I have lived here. I envy you.

I like that back to back card. I haven't seen those before. I wish Donruss had a lisence.

I can't believe you went to a card show and didn't find any good Indians. That's a tough break.

NO kiddng, Donruss needs a license. The Triple Threads last year were horrible thanks to them and their lack of license - not to mention, I still haven't seen a single Milwaukee card from that set.

I had a Garko auto/jersey card in my hand, I kid you not. But it was either that, or the triple bat rack card...I had to stick with my boys.

An actual card show where you found cards relevant to your actual interest. Nice. That bat rack card is kooky.
