Card Show Commons


Here is my nice stack of cards from the Topeka card show from last weekend. The seller that I always to try to find with his "90% off Beckett" bin wasn't there but I was still able to get some vintage commons for about 50¢ each.

1972 Topps #549 Dave May


1969 Topps #141 Bill Dillman


1967 Topps #373 Duane Josephson/Fred Klages Rookie Stars


1966 Topps #276 Jim Bouton


1967 Topps #86 Mike McCormick


1967 Topps #190 Turk Farrell


1967 Topps #397 Willie Smith


1959 Topps #120 Chuck Coles Rookie Stars


Which brings me to my latest collecting experiment...much like dayf's mini Frankenset, I've started a Vintage Binder that combines various sets with cards numbered 1-700, which gives me pages like this for cards #46-54:

The only requirement is that the cards have to be at least 30 years old to be included.

There's something mesmerizing about that 1967 Turk Farrell card.

Like the set idea, thought about doing something along the same lines... someday. I definitely follow your endeavor.

I bet your 90% off guy is the same one I always try to find in Springfield MO card shows. Err I did try to find...
