DBBD: 2015 Topps Chrome Update #US161 Jeff Samardzija

I picked this out of the dime box thinking that it was a parallel of some sort.  Oops!  Ah well, it'll find a good home some day!

Upper Deck, Parkies and Reds, Oh My!

In effort to complete two sets (2016-17 Parkhurst and Upper Deck Series 1), I posted a thread on Sports Card Forum in attempt to make some trades.

Once we had exchanged info on what we each had and needed, it turned out that Billy needed a few more than I did and he mentioned that he had some Young Guns if we needed it to even out.  I asked if he had any of the 2016-17 Parkhurst Red parallels since I'm acquiring cards for a set.  So I took those on, along with a Tyler Motte Young Guns and we both came out a lot closer to our sets!


Now that either SCF has added the "Set Building" areas in each sport, I feel that it's much easier to work on trades for sets.  Or, if I have a lot of cards from a set that I don't want to complete, I can look to find someone that needs them on there.  Well done, SCF!

DBBD: 1988 Classic Blue #234 Rickey Henderson

A few days ago, I saw a post on "The Shablotnik Report" about the Classic sets of the late 1980s and early 1990s.  I knew that I'd picked some up these up from dime boxes so I knew the timing was good to show one of them off as the "Dime Box Buy of the Day."

Dollar Box Diving - Hockey Style

I wrote about pickups from the card show a few days ago, but I only went through some of the pickups for my collection.  I also bought a lot of dollar and dime cards.  The dime cards were the genesis of my new "Dime Box Buy of the Day" series.

The second table I visited that day was the lone gentleman that sells only hockey.  I hadn't been to the show in months and his dollar box was a new thing.  The cards all had higher prices marked on them and I think it's possible he's just recently thrown it together.  Someone else had already pulled 50 or so cards from it (DAMN!) but I still found some to pick up.

Most are for trade bait and will be in my Sports Card Forum inventory, but some were picked up for me.  Also, a couple were picked up for particular collectors.  I thought some would be interested in what I pulled from the dollar box.
