At The National Day Two . . . trying to meet some goals
I could not find any of the four OPC cards I needed to complete my set, but I did get closer to getting a complete Alou Brothers run from their playing days. This 1965 Jesus Alou was a high number, I had to go to about three different vendors that had '65 albums before finding this copy.
Four more 1948 Bowmans! Enos Slaughter (top right) was the big ticket card of the day. These four, plus one from Wednesday night brings me to a total of 38 of 48 cards from the set. I might finish it before the next National!
Ah, Kennys. I asked every vendor in the room if they had a copy of the Vargas Topps Acetate card, and this was the closest I could get.
This one was also numbered to just 10 copies.
Three more for the 1956 set- I saw several tables with commons for $2-3 each. I decided to hold off on those to save up for meeting some other goals.
Always room for dime box finds.... some highlights
From this big stack.
This was one big goal for the National - find an unopened pack of something older than I've ever opened before. The 1975 Mini pack was cheaper than the 1976 and 1977 packs, so I decided to pull the trigger on this one. I'll open it up some time later on...
