I didn't come across anything at Leon's table that both did it for me and I could afford, so I didn't pick anything up from him. However, two was my number of the day. I picked up two boxes and two singles, off two different sellers and spent only $22. Walking out without much isn't an issue for me. I have often been guilty of buying stuff that doesn't necessarily fit into my collection just because I have the money. No mas!

To be honest, I'm not even sure who is in the Line Drive set. What I do know is that I need some minor league Russ Davis cards that people are asking $2.50 for on COMC. He's a common and shouldn't be that much. While he's not in this set, there may be a few cards that I can send in. A couple of weeks ago I read a post on The Greatest 21 Days blog about a player that played his college ball at my alma mater, West Virginia University. I'm hoping maybe I can find a hidden gem in this set. If I don't find either of those things, I'm sure there are some bloggers that would like some of the cards, so it's going to be a win no matter what.
The boxes will go onto the rainy day shelf with the 20 or so other unopened boxes I have. I have so many projects that I want to get done. I've started a page on Collector Focus, so I have a lot of scanning and organizing to do. I also have boxes on boxes in my closet to organize and enter into my Sports Card Forum inventory. It may be while before I open these two boxes. It may be next week. Who knows?
