October's show was disappointing from a collector traffic standpoint (there was nobody there) but for a browser and a bargain box digger, it was just fine.
I spent a good amount of time digging through one dealer's box of jersey cards - marked $3/card. As I was merrily flipping through the boxes the dealer was showing off some of his higher-end modern jersey/auto cards to another dealer and negotiating over prices. Most of the prices they were discussing were in the hundreds of dollars (which, quite frankly, I just don't understand when it comes to a modern card with a sticker autograph).
In any event, when I finished digging and presented my haul to the dealer, he asked to see the cards so he could see "what was moving out the junk box". I responded with the title to this post "one man's trash is another man's treasure..." which caused him to stammer and apologize...but I assured him I was only joking.
Anyway, these were the $3 "treasures" I scored....
First - two phan phavorite Phillies (I don't see a lot of Lefty relics and for $3 I thought this was pretty cool)
And a couple of Rollins (I really like the way the Gypsy Queen relics look - particularly the framed minis)
An some Iggles.... (great action shot of Jackson, and the multi material Kolb looks pretty cool).
More iggles....I like the jumbo swatches.
...and more Iggles (the cards with football pieces are an interested change to the typical memorabilia card)
Hope you enjoy the "garbage".
