It looks like it's time for another series of card show recaps, the giant 180-table show a couple of weeks back was quite bountiful (as they always are), so there is much to get to.
Usually I use the first post to set scene, but is seems like there isn't too much to set-up this particular time -- Lots of dealers, lots of tables, and an obscene amount of people -- that about covers it!
I was a bit surprised to see that a few of the sellers who you always see at the big shows weren't there, but they aren't anybody who I normally buy very much from anyway, so it really wasn't a big deal. I had heard a few times that this show had been sold out for over a year, which made me think that they just didn't reserve their space in time.
The only thing of note that happened --which isn't going to be terribly interesting to anyone but me -- was that I actually left home on time for once (I'm perpetually 10-20 minutes behind schedule). I got out of here at 4:50 (in the AM), and got there at 6:35 (still in the AM). This was very nice, because even though there was already a lot of people there, I did at least get there before the main throng.
As you may have been able to deduce from the title, this first post is going to cover the stuff that doesn't necessarily fit into the five food groups.
Nick mentioned that Bo was the most common player for him to find in Broder form, for me it's always been Griffey and Jordan. But either way, I found three more to add to my unplanned mini-collection of Bo Broder's, including another copy of the Diamond Sports card.
I never knew that A&G had included her in one of their sets, I see that she has an autographed mini in the 2009 set as well, I guess one of these days I'll have to try and pick that one up too
All was not lost though, as the last stack had not only names that I recognized, but a set that I recognized as well. Some one can correct me if I'm wrong, but I think this 2001 War Booty set was the first for WWF related memorabilia.
In the coming weeks I'll have a separate post for each of the three major sports, and thanks to all of the recent replies that I got, they will be whittled down some, so you'll be seeing what I consider to be the best of the best.
Thanks for taking a moment to look at my page.
