I walked the room and there was a seller with a 1991 Topps factory set. I planned to make him an offer but once I got back, it was gone. The price was right but I didn't want to carry it around. Oops!
The first purchase I made was a few cards from 3/$10 boxes. I'm not showing them all because some will be sent to others and I want them to be surprises.

I picked the following card up from Leon, the owner of the Net54 site. It will make it's way to a Cubs collector in time. At that price and age, I wasn't leaving it behind.
|1953 Bowman Black and White #12 Randy Jackson|
|1954 Bowman #64 Eddie Mathews|
Dividing the price paid by the three cards I purchased, I likely slighty overpaid for this one. It's a card of a Hall-of-Famer and I made up for any overpayment with the other two cards.
|1933-34 V357 Ice Kings #12 Nels Stewart|
|1933-34 V357 Ice Kings #12 Nels Stewart (back)|
Even in poor condition, I was thrilled at the price I got this at. I had no idea of the value or anything about Nelson Stewart. It turns out that he is a Hall-of-Famer, enshrined in 1952. It also turns out that high BV on this card is $600. Despite the condition, I got a deal. Have I mentioned that I'm thrilled to add this card to my collection?

I've been fortunate to come into a few vintage hockey cards at fantastic prices. The trend is continuing!
