So like the title reads, this is mostly dime box pulls. There are a couple things I won't show, like the Jason Bay mini relic I pulled from a pack of Lineage (up for trade), or a couple vintage cards I bought (70 Aparicio and a 68 blue back Bill Freehan). Those two vintage, plus a couple other cards I'll share later set me back $20, but I think I did okay. First, though, let's see what $6 spent on the dime box garnered me. Can you do the math to guess how many cards I got?
60, alright? Will you untie my parents NOW?
We only had time to hit one dime box, but it was pretty good for 10 cents a card. For starters, I ended up finding two cards for my Ben Petrick PC.
Found a couple very nice cards from the early 80's that were photos from Spring Training.
How frigging huge are those A's numbers? Now, I just pull and collect what I like. In that vein, I am not a Randy Johnson collector, but when you see a card like this (from a Pinnacle set called Zenith) for a dime, you buy it.
I shared on one edition of SIL of a card from the 2000 Fleer Great of the Game set. I found a dozen in the box, so I will work on getting the complete 108 card set. Isn't this a pretty card?
Out of the 60 cards I have two that mention both players pictured. And nice cards they are.
Father/son of the Ripkens, and Kirby with Bo. I think they spotted a couple hotties in the stands.
So, my two big purchases (that my wife egged me on to buy). First, I bought this nice auto of the recently passed Moose Skowron.
Numbered 75 of 199. It was marked $20, but I got it for $10. Maybe I overpaid a little, but look at what the other half of the Jackson got me.
And we now have 10 cards in the Pierce Project. The corners are rounded a bit, but otherwise the card is very clean with no creases.
Well, that's it. A good time spent at the show. Got some great cards for the binders. So I am going to sign off here and I will not be talking about any more cards that I got out of the dime boxes. Yup - not going to make mention about any of the other 60 cards that my wife and I found.
Don't be so sad, Gaylord. You'll find somewhere else to hide the Vaseline.
