A couple of posts back I covered the dime box purchases, so as you might've been able to infer from the title, this one will feature the slightly more expensive stuff.
I had seen the Pro Debut mascot patch cards on various blogs in the past, and enjoyed them every time I saw and read about them, but it always seemed like I forgot about them almost immediately after. So up until this point I hadn't seen them person, nor had I ever looked for them online (because of that whole forgetting thing). That all changed when upon arriving to the show, I headed straight for my favorite seller, Jim, who just happened to have a small stack of 2013 patches for $1 each. It only took me a few seconds before deciding to buy all seven of them:
I also came across another interesting Pro Debut item, this time from the 2015 edition:
Normally I don't seek out printing plates, in fact I have ever only bought two, so buying three at this particular show was a bit out of character for me to say that least. But this was also the first time I had ever actually seen any at a show too, so for $3 apiece, I figured why not, even if I only knew who one of the three players were:
Despite the size of this show, I had virtually no luck in the vintage department. Don't get me wrong, there was plenty of it to be had, it was just one of those time where the prices didn't seem to match the conditions. And as I mentioned in the previous recap, I wasn't feeling so great, so I was in no mood to deal with anyone that didn't have their stuff priced (but did have a Beckett at the ready) or the people that had their stuff marked at full Beckett price... but would make me a good deal if I put a stack together. With that being said, I did manage to snag a much needed tall boy from the 1969-70 set:
And the back...
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
