I've been on a spending spree lately with a focus on more vintage and set building. This past weekend's show didn't disappoint. Surprisingly when I got there attendance was sparse, so that for once I could go through boxes and bins at a relaxed pace. The lack of attendance also made it easier to converse with dealers and swing better deals. I had a $100 budget this time (give or take a few bucks) but only spent around $80. I almost blew that budget (and then some) on a '69 Reggie rookie, that was located near the door and was one of the first tables I checked. But after making the rounds and picking up these vintage cards, I totally forgot about it! Oh well, I'm pretty sure I'll see more of them.
This trio of '75 mini's headline a group of 26 I bought. Unfortunately the Brock has a wax stain on the back but I try to pick these up when I see them. While my set build is now 18% complete I don't consider it a priority when I'm at shows.
These three '62 Post cards helped fill in some needs and now my set is 39% complete.
I picked up 14 more needs for my '60 set build including a few hi #'s. It's always fun to see a completion rate climb, and now this set is 62% done.
I added 7 more needs to my '56 build. The checklist is fully marked, but was still the most expensive card I purchased at $20. These darn vintage checklists are tough. The set is now 40% complete (not counting the checklist).
In the 'just for fun' category, I plucked a Garvey game-used memorabilia card for $5.
And along the way one of my favorite soccer players, Tino Lettieri, was signing for free! So cool to meet and converse with a player I grew up watching. He signed a few items for me including this 1988 Pacific MISL card. I reviewed this set awhile ago, here's a LINK if you care to read up on indoor soccer league cards.
