When I walked into Valley Sports Cards on Saturday, I wasn’t expecting to buy anything for myself. I went in there for Pokemon cards for the twins. I wasn’t expecting to get any cards off the bid board as I was there a little past 1 pm, and their bid board ends at 1 pm. So how did I end up with cards from the bid board? They said that if something wasn’t bid on then I could take have the card for the minimum bid. Part of me wanted to take every jersey and autograph that was qualified and was a dollar. I operate in moderation however and only took a few items. $3 for 3 cards.
Alvan Adams jersey; grabbed it because I would never sniff National Treasures in real life. Kenny Bell patch, because a dollar for a recent patch , even if it is event worn, is a steal from any card shop. Rashad Greene because acetate autographs are beautiful. All PC impulse buys.

Hi i just bought 8 jumbo boxes of the 100 baseball cards + 1 pack inside.THE BOX DETAILS ON BACK PRINTED SAYS 1 AND 4 PACKAGES CONTAINS A HIT. THAT IS BULLSHIT.MAY INCLUDE A GAME USED CARD, EVENT USED CARD,MANUFACTURED,AUTOGRAPh OR RELIC CARD.ALLOF8JUMBO BOXES DIDN’T EVEN GET ONE HIT CARDONE. PAID 5.99
Ya those packs are pretty awful. At least you only paid $6. Sometimes, I am even more pissed off because the hit feels like dollar bin leftovers.
Just re-read that. 8 jumbo boxes, wow. Hope the pack was good but m guess was that it was some 90s junk wax.
