3/29/14 Card show pick ups-Scan heavy - JMarchand1981 - 03-30-2014

I went to the card show in Wilmington MA yesterday. I am a bargain bin hunter at card shows. I buy higher end stuff on ebay because I feel the prices are a little bitter.

So with the exception of the last scan, everything here was under $2. Only a few cards were $2, most were $1 and many were .50 and under.

The Richardson and both Pierce's are refractors

The Payton's, Aldridge's, and Andre Miller are refractors

I basically swung and missed on this entire scan...but it only set me back $4 or so.

This Randolph's are PC. THe Iggy would normally be but apparently I already had that one. The Bowman Randolph is /199 (I believe). The Red Bowman Signatures is /50.

The Aldridge Chrome is in a dirty penny sleeve. The Aldridge TFC is PC. The Iggys are all numbered.

This scan was where I spent more than $2 per card.
Tony Allen /25- I paid $4
Bargnani RC auto- I paid $4
Z-bo Auto- I paid $4 (I know it is in bad shape but its PC anyway.)
The Hamilton FF auto/relic- I paid $4
The Iggy SP was $6
The Iggy Silo was $10

All together I spent $97 on cards. I spent $14 on admission for myself and my wife. I also dropped $80 on supplies but that will last me probably the rest of 2014.

Card shows man...that's where you can get the best bang for your buck as long as you aren't collecting super high-end or super popular players. Mitch pickings tend to be slim, but they're always cheap if/when I find them. I've also had a lot of luck picking up Buckeye autos down here in NC as opposed to the premium they tend to garner back home in Ohio. Great work man!

Great haul bud. I wish I could have made it. Today was my onl day off and my brother was nice enough to offer to come by and help me hang some drywall in a room I'm renovating. I couldn't pass that up just to hang out with cardboard...
