Random Prince Sighting

After hours of shopping and walking through antique mall after antique mall (only 1 having any baseball cards whatsoever, all high-end 1950's cards) with the wife on a beautiful saturday afternoon, we stopped by a small card shop that put an ad on craigslist trying to get some foot traffic. I went through their top loader bin, and came up with these two beauties. I offered him $8.00 for the pair, and took them home (with 2 free packs of '07 Topps Series 2 cards just for stopping by). 

2002 Upper Deck Draft Day Gems #237  Prince Fielder

2002 Upper Deck Minor League Baseball #41 Prince Fielder

Here, the card shows the Beloit Snappers (former class-A affiliate of the Brewers) logo, but the wording and picture show him with the Ogden Raptors (rookie ball). That's how quickly he progressed through the system. 

Nice cards here, bought them for $8.00 together, and on ebay right now I can buy them for $30.00 together. Graded, I can get $90.00 for the pair. Nice! Glad I came across them, and proud of the random find today.

Very nice find, anything Prince is worth while!

That's the one problem with Canada, it's much harder to find baseball card singles, especially any team no Toronto!
