Picked Up Some 1971 Topps

I have a friend of mine from Charlotte visiting Greenville for the first time, so one of the first things I did with him was take him to the card shop here. We didn't plan on staying long, that is until the torrential downpour came. So, we stood and talked to the shop owner, looked through some stuff and talked some more.

We discussed how the Stephen Strasburg mania was getting on our nerves in that you can't find any new stuff to open. I won't be able to do Allen & Ginter this year mainly because the prices are already shooting up. We talked about how I had just started my 1971 set, and the shop owner pulled out a bunch of card pages of 1970-1972s he had just bought off of somebody.

I grabbed over 100 1971's I needed for my set, which was a big chunk. The biggest card/name I got was this Bert Blyleven RC.
I still need the Garvey RC, but it was nice to get the Blyleven out of the way. A lot of what I found were higher numbers, so I think I got a pretty good deal.
