Went to a Card show about an hour from my house. I took $155 cash with me with the thoughts of buying a high end card and then using the rest for mid and low end purchases. So, there wasn't a single high end card that I was interested in. My next thought was to buy wax but my new years resolution was to grab singles that I want instead. Anyway, I ended up with the following:

I paid $4 for this total. Considering that I wanted the Rondo Topps anyway...the other cards were just nice additions.

I paid $30 at this table. I took a chance hoping that the Kobe Metals were the rookies. They aren't. I like the Skylines though.

I paid $85 at this table. The guy wanted $130. I countered with $70. We settled on $85. The Production line is out of 399

I paid $8 here. There was no bargaining needed. The guy had it tagged at $8. It is out of 249.

I paid $15 for it. I have been looking for this card at a reasonable price.

I left with $13 in my pocket.

I think I did OK. Nothing great but less than half of BV all together.

Thoughts? Opinions? I am curious to see if I am only seeing it as good because I have no other option but to think I did OK.
You did great!! Nice Kobe additions and Love the Pippen Beam Team.
Great pick ups man! Can't have enough extra Kobe RCs!
THank you. THe guy wanted $3 on the Pippen. I don't really collect Pippen and figured that I might be able to turn the $3 into a like-valued Kobe or at least put it towards something in my 2009-10 Contenders auto project.

For $85 how could I go wrong. I mean, I had the UD one already but better than one is two, right? I needed the Fleer, Skybox Premium, Hoops, TOpps, Z-Force and Finest so the money spent went right into my PC.
nice pick ups for the price. i may be interested in the pippen, but not sure I have anything you're interested in.
Nice job man.. i always loved the zforce and metal looks

Thank you sir! I had the chance to go through the cards that I picked up. Pretty happy with it all. Nice additions and the 4 bucks spent out of the dollar or less box was simply a good deal and could make for decent trade fodder.
