I was talking to the owner John during the sale and he pretty much said that he just wanted everything at the sale gone. They were trying to reduce their warehouse space and it showed in how bargain basement the prices were.
They had a little of very thing there. Graphic novels for a couple bucks, posters, comics, games, supplies, and of course sports cards. I filled up a medium size box with goodies and here's what I got.
There were tons of the old Traded, Update, and other cool box sets from the 90's. At a buck a pop that was cheap enough for me. Sure some of these sets are only worth $3 or so, but I didn't own them.
Couple 1989 Fleer Update sets.
1991 Fleer update.
Most of the set was still in it's cellophane wrappers
I also picked up a few 1993 Series 2 vending boxes on the cheap. I'm slowly building all the sets I never bothered to put together. I was in my second year of college when this came out and I had better things to do and spend my money on at the time.
I also picked up a few of these. This is the 1987 Official USA team set, printed in 1990. I mainly got it because it has Frank Thomas in it, but Jim Abbott is right there on top as well.
I also picked up a wax box of these odd balls. I'm not a big soccer fan, but I'm an oddball lover and these were just too weird to pass up.
I was looking online and some of these can go for a few bucks, although that would be in England. I didn't open any up yet. In theory there should be a full set in the box with only 18 in the set and 24 per box, but 90's Topps collation is a bitch. Here's what one looks like that I found off the web. The whole box cast me $2.
I also found a couple there Classic sets for a buck a piece.
I grabbed a couple of these 1994 Skybox Harley-Davidson sets.
As a Packer fan it was hard to pass up a vintage team set for a quarter.
But by far the best thing I found was this 1997 Pinnacle sales portfolio.
And I payed a whole fifty cents for this. I wish I had more room for stuff it really was a great sale. I'll be down at Bosco's this Wednesday for trade night, wish me luck I'm hoping I win the big drawing.
