Well I went to Don's Sportscard Trade night the other night. Both card shops in town do this. Bosco's on the first Wednesday and Don's usually a Wednesday in the middle of the month. Both nights I walked out barely buying anything. At Bosco's I literally left with out purchasing a single trading card but I did pick up a few comics. There just hasn't been anything I want to buy and with Heritage prices going threw the roof again this year and Tribute topping 70 bucks a pack, no thank you, there's not really much to buy for a baseball/football collector. Sorry UD Football with pros in college uni's doesn't count, at least not in my book. So there I was looking through Don's dropboard seeing if there was anything that peaked my interest and looking through his 1972 Topps Baseball for some Brewers to help me finish my set. I did manage to find a few things to take home with me. This is exactly what happened last year and why I ended up spending so much money on Heritage. Boredom with the hobby. Topps exclusive severely limits what I can buy which is too bad. Yes there is new Basketball and Hockey, but those are both sports I really don't collect. Enough with the soap box here's what I picked up.
First I found a nice 1971 Topps Football game Bradshaw for about 2 bucks. I really like these cards and the only other one I have is the Bart Starr. I really want to get my hands on a Willie Wood as well.
I also grabbed three MSA blank back discs of Johnny Bench, Mike Schmidt and Tony Perez, each a buck.
I also grabbed 4 1972 Brewers cards for my team set and I decided to splurge on a pack of UFC Knockout.
I have to say if I followed UFC more, I have friends who are nuts for it, I would definitely go after these cards and the other UFC sets. I pulled 2 numbered cards, one of Dan Hardy, who I actually know who he is, and this guy.
