“Pin-Up” of the Week: Hooters – The Springfield Mile Memorial Day Weekend Pin



Card Show This Weekend

This week while driving home from school, I went past the mall and saw on the marquee out front that they are having another card show this weekend.  This is their third show this year which is great, but a little unusual.  In the past, they might have had a show once a year.  I guess these shows really bring customers into the mall.  I know that one of my local dealers will be there and always has a nice selection of single cards and boxes to buy.  I’ll be looking for some Donruss Classics boxes to break.  Thats my favorite product right now.  These shows are great for finding Phillies cards.  Last time I was at this show I found a Gary Maddox game used bat, which isn’t worth much at all but rarely shows up for sale on eBay, for only $5.00.  You never know what you might find.

Susquehanna Valley Mall Card Show Results

Last weekend my local mall, Susquehanna Valley Mall, had its second card show of the year.  It only had a few tables but I thought it was pretty good.  One of the local card shops in the area had a table and I checked out some of the stuff.  While I was there I purchased two boxes of 2008 Playoff Prestige football cards and a few jumbo packs of 2008 Bowman baseball cards.  The two Prestige boxes yielded a Brett Favre jersey /25, Kitna/Palmer dual jersey /250, a Favre/Brady/Brees/Romo quad jersey /250 plus a few other rookie autos and memorabilia cards.  There were a ton of insert cards too.  The two lowest numbered cards I pulled were a Eddie Royal Picks rookie /25 and a Mario Manningham Picks rookie /50.  My best hit didn’t come until the end of the day.  I put all of my serial numbered cards in holders and put everything away.  After searching eBay for 2008 Prestige card I came across a Felix Jones #139 rookie card.  I looked at the picture and thought, “I know I have seen that card before”.  So I started going through all of the base cards and found it.  I couldn’t believe that I pulled that card.  It proabably is one of the hardest cards to pull from that set and I did it in only two boxes.  What a great show!!!
