What I Got at the Card Show: 6/10/06

Site: Hamilton Mall; Mays Landing, NJ

England just beat Paraguay 1-0 in the World Cup, the Phillies game is blacked out (me and my brother are pulling a roadie and going to D.C. to see the Phils on Sunday), so it was either watch Trinidad get its ass kicked by Sweden, or go to a card show. Yeah, that's what I was thinking too.

One box of 2006 Ultra baseball (Paid $59)

Box break forthcoming.

One big ol' stack o' singles (Paid $105)

All of these were on my checklist as set fillers. Not looking for anything in particular, but I was happy to find the '02 TT&R SPs and all those cheap '05 Donruss-Playoff inserts.

In 1994, I actually pulled the Michael Jordan Diamond Collection card and immeediately sold it back to the dealer I bought the pack from for $50. This particular dealer wanted $12 for it.

OBTW, Sweden and T&T played to a pretty exciting scoreless draw, (that's not sarcasm) and I was able to get back in time to see Ivory Coast nearly come back to tie Argentina. The World Cup really begins on Monday afternoon.
