Trip to LCS - JMarchand1981 - 11-10-2012 04:36 PM
I am trying to complete the 2012 Gypsy Queen mini set with all the variations and cards 301-350. I am pretty far from completion so I went to the LCS (it is an hour from where I live but worth the trip even when there is one closer to me). This set can get confusing so I took my binder that is holding all the cards. There are empty slots throughout representing the base and variations that I need.
So the LCS had 54 that I need. I am not sure if I am allowed to give a shout-out of sorts to the card store but I will find out. Jeff at Diamond King Sports Cards in Greenland NH only charged me $50 for these cards. As anyone who has tried to complete this set knows, even commons of these cards are $1-$2. Certainly I needed stars too(for instance I needed BOTH Ripkens).
I am not a relative of Jeff and I don't work there or anything but this guy is one of the most reasonable, cool dudes in this business. He KNEW that I needed these cards so he could have said $60, $70, or $80 and I would have done it. This may get removed but it is worth putting it out there until it gets removed(if this is against the TOS).

That's excellent, man! I don't see why anyone would have a problem with you expressing your appreciation for someone who helped you out. Congrats!
