My third day at the National was Saturday, and it ended up being my last this year. I did my best to make the most of the budget I set for myself- being able to stay with my brother, borrowing a friend's car to drive to Chicago, and then taking the Blue Line train to the show helped me cut a lot of the costs down on travel, lodging and food.
Dime Boxes - we traded some cards (see my post tomorrow) and then we started a joint dig in a BIG stack of dime boxes. . .
caught a baseball dropped from the top of the Washington Monument! Just $30 for this card, which is the new title holder as the oldest card in my collection.
This was a great find to round out the show on Saturday. I didn't all my goals, but most importantly: I had a fantastic time, met some great people, found some really fantastic cardboard, and I don't have to declare bankruptcy!
