Let me start off by saying that isn't going to be a post about some new buddy cop movie, despite a title giving that impression. Rather it will be to show my two splurge purchases from this past weekend's card show.
There were plenty of other cards gotten at the show, but those will have to wait for future posts. More money was spent than planned as well. But I have learned the hard way that if a good deal (or deals)presents itself, it is usually a good idea to jump on it, because you might not ever get a chance to get the item for that price again. I have had a number of instances in which I didn't take advantage of that "deal of a lifetime", and most of those instances are still haunting me.
First up is a card of a fellow you normally wouldn't expect to find for anywhere near a reasonable to good price at a show.
1968 Topps Mickey Mantle #280:
On to the second splurge card.
1972-73 Topps Wilt Chamberlain #1:
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
