You see, the weekend following my birthday I talked my little brother into taking a road trip with me. Where to you ask? The place everyone goes for a nice roadie...Louisville, KY!
Ok. You right. No one goes there for a road trip. Unless, of course, there's a card show in town!
Unfortunately, Louisville was on a short list (Murfreesboro, TN and Hickory, NC) of locations having a card show within driving distance. And while it was not a crowded as I was told it should be, my trip was well worth it.
I prepared myself with the fact that there wouldn't be a lot of Todd Helton stuff lying around waiting for me to pounce and what was there was probably base of which a have quadruples. So needless to say, I was extremely happy to find these.
$2 apiece! A steal considering most of these go for over $5 on the Bay. These weren't the only awesome GU I walked away with, though.
The quad of Dontrelle, Uggla, Miggy and Han Ram is by far the steal of the lot. Numbered 10/25...with Miguel Cabrera on it...$5. Not to mention my favorite card of the day the Hosmer/Moustakas dual jersey from '11 Bowman Sterling...$7
They may not be some of the biggest players from the set, but I'll take them!!!
Oh, I couldn't forget my Freddie Freeman collection either.
Too bad I was only able to find four...
I even brought Ashley back some cardboard.
Lauriniatis, Mauer and Ohio St. Yeah, I did good.
Last, but not least, some random PC needs.
Finally found a Dante Bichette, Jr. Got the '12 Topps Chrome Black Bautista for a mire dollar. Even grabbed a Dexter Fowler Auto, which is also my first letter relic, #ed 1/65!
Not too bad for a four hour drive! Have a great night everyone!
