I went to the monthly card show this morning. I had two objectives: hit the dime boxes hard and pick up some 1971's.
I did IMMENSELY well on both. Nick, you'd be proud.
First up the dime box finds:
The sorted piles:
Here is my top ten finds of the dime boxes:
That's only nine you say? Well thats because this was the best dime box find:
The crazy part about this haul is I had to stop myself! There was still another box to go through. I only went through two 3200 count boxes! There was so much awesome stuff that I'm still in awe with what I've found.
As for '71's, I hit three dealers but did the most damage to my wantlist from my vintage guy, Larry. We're on a first name basis now, I see him so often. Well, I ended up with 73 towards my set today (plus I picked up 67 from my local shop, cleaning him out of what I need) putting me at 513/752. I'd say it's coming along really well!
This was the best of what I got today:
I gotta say, going for this set is way more satisfying than busting wax right now.
All in all, easily the best show haul I've ever had. So much great stuff that I'll be sorting for quite some time.
