September 2015 Raleigh Card Show Recap
Another thing I look at is what was I able to find at the show? Well, I didn't really feel like a lot of things jumped out at me, but when I got home and looked through the cards I got, I was really happy to see what I had. I also used this show as a kickoff to Christmas shopping for some of my fellow collectors.
The above 1980 Exhibits Jimmie Foxx only set me back $2.00. It scanned really nice, and looks pretty cool in person. I have quite a few of these oversized cards, and I don't really know how I want to display or store them. They are wedged against the side of my desk, behind a case of CD-Rs. Gotta find a better spot for them, but at least they're safe.
This card, which it's hard to tell, is an acetate. I really love these cards, and am so happy I was able to get this for $2.00.
I actually met a couple kids at the show today who knew Roberts's dad. That was a cool story to hear. My Roberts PC has been mothballed, so I will have to dig it out, and add this card to it. I don't anticipate too many more cards being added to it, so I probably ought to add him to my spreadsheet and go for a few rainbows.
So, in all, while my sales were the worst I have had, I would still call this a successful card show. I didn't blow my budget, I made a few new friends, kept some returning customers, and added some cool cards to the collection. Not too bad for two days work.
