Unfortunately, I was very disappointed. Thinking with this being in the Expo Center that this would be a HUGE event, but instead it was in about half the building and only a handful of tables for the card show. They did have some big names for the autograph sessions so I guess that was the main draw for the event.
I told myself I was going to stick to my 2017 goals and only go after cards I needed, or if I found a Chris Sabo bobble for my coworker. Here is my haul for the day.
1992 Kahn's Reds Team Set
I was not expecting to go after team sets today, but a seller had sets at $3 a pop, so I grabbed all the ones I didn't have, which was two. My end goal with this PC is to collect a set from 1988-Present. Once this goal is accomplished, I will start working backwards. I know this will become a pricey endeavor.
1995 Kahn's Reds Team Set
Same as above. Does anyone else remember Davey Johnson being manager of the Reds? I had to do my research as I was not a big baseball fan in the early/mid 90's. Apparently he won a World Series with the Mets. He had a 204-172-1 record in three seasons with the Reds. I sometimes forget how good we were back then after so much losing in the 2000's.
1992 Topps Gold Winners #465B Barry Larkin
I was surprised to find this in a $1 box as I was sorting through cards. For starters, I did not realize they made a corrected version of this card. 465A had Larkin playing for the Astros. I actually had to add this card to my master list.
In the end I was happy I was able to stick to my list and get a few cards I needed.
Stay tuned tomorrow as I will be doing a week long mail day post. I had a lot of fun items come to the mailbox this week.
