Pickups: Topps National Baseball Card Day
August 13, 2016 § Leave a comment
I have to be honest, I had no interest in participating in this promotion. Yet today when I left to make a quick trip the store, I somehow found myself on the freeway headed to my favorite card shop. If you read the site, you know this is my first time doing this. I rationalized it by saying that I haven’t shown my face to my favorite people, and card shop owners, in a while. Honestly, it was worth it just to see them.
I spent more than required amount so I got the Kris Bryant card, which was in a one touch. I am debating opening the pack – I won’t resell it anything, I am just like that.
I also got a few other things. Below is the highlights. Cool story about the Benjamin card. I was on my way out but then called back in and offered it for a low price. Honestly I was so happy that he thought of me, that I pulled out the cash sight unseen. The autograph from Certified is Mark Aguirre. Also buried underneath all of that is third party graded Jeff Bagwell rookie that I scored a buck.
