He didn't have a bin but he did have a 1000 count box marked 10% of Beckett. I did good in this box. Really good. This is the first card I grabbed up.
Why he only wanted 10% for this thing I can't figure. It is easily the nicest 71 Topps I own. Perfect corners and no chipping. It is a little offcenter but perefect in any other way. What is 10% of Beckett did you say? Can you beleive $3? This is the best deal I got all day. One of my better finds ever.
Next up I got a double. Now I brought my checklist and it said I had the card already but I sure didn't remember the picture and thought the guy looks so goofy I surly would remember it if I had it. Turns out the list was right and I now have to cards of this Dizzy goofy card. (3 cards, I found I have a reprinted one also) This one was an upgrade at least.
When I got back into collecting my plan was to finish the 56 team set and then the 55 because I already had the Williams from both sets. I got the 56 done but I kinda got off track and chased about 200 different team sets instead. I'm now two cards closer.
The guy pulled like 10 boxes out from under his table looking for the last 1960 Topps I need Bill Monbouquette (which noone had at the show) when he uncovered a stack of Deckle. A big stack, a couple hundred of them. This Harrelson is the last one I needed.
I also bought something else from this guy but it is for tomorrow's contest post. So stay tuned tomorrow for my first contest.
