My vacation starts when I head home from work on Friday. On August 4 and 5, we (my wife, son, myself and fellow blogger Ryan) will all be going to the National card show in Baltimore. I'm really excited. This is the reason I haven't bought anything in a while. After purchasing my 3 jumbo boxes of Topps Series 2, I have devoted all of my savings toward paying for my autograph tickets and building a sizable amount to take with me to said show.
I am going to sit down over the next few days and make a list of some things I want to look for at the show. I most definitely will be on the lookout for 2009 Topps Brooks Robinson Letter Patches to hopefully finish off my collection. I may also look for some 1948 Bowman to make a dent in that set. Maybe I'll look for another 1951 Topps Red Back set, since, you know, I can't freaking find mine... Maybe some Bowman Bob Fellers. Maybe some Virgil Trucks cards (2011 Wrapper Redemption Auto, maybe?).
I'm really excited! I'm also excited about the other part of my vacation, which is pretty much destination unknown right now. I intend to check out some MiLB teams somewhere, but I'm not sure where, yet. Most likely Memphis and/or Nashville, but I'm not ruling out Montgomery, AL, either. I still need to decide.
Anyway, I'm excited, as you can tell. I'll be looking for cards for certain friends of mine as well. You know who you are!
