Even with the empty tables and low customer turnout for the third Orland Show in a row, I had a tremendous day. Terry picked up my near set of 1975 Topps minis. Another customer purchased my 1939 Play Ball Ted Williams. Rick picked up some nice stuff including a 1971 Topps Mike Shannon that was Mint, some other high grade 1972s, a real nice 1961 Post Nellie Fox, a 1961 Topps Willie Mays PSA 7, a 1967 Topps Ernie Banks PSA 7, and a 1964 Topps Al Lopez PSA 8. Another customer picked up quite a few 1967 Topps baseball, Chris picked up my 1967 Topps Pete Rose and some '77-78 and '78-79 Topps basketball, a young customer purchased my 1969 Topps Roberto Clemente, another young guy got my 1956 Topps Nellie Fox, and I sold my 1970 Topps Glossy Johnny Unitas to another customer. Joel picked up some 1960 Topps baseball, Chuck purchased my 1976 Topps George Brett, another customer purchased some 1972s, and Bill picked up my 1965 Topps Tony Perez rookie.
I picked up some 1957 Topps baseball from Dave in a trade. In another trade, I picked up some 1979 Topps football and some 1969 Topps commons from Chris. I bought some 1972 high numbers from Jim. A random guy, who I have seen at the show forever but who has never purchased cards from me, sold me a small group of cards including a 1967 Jim Palmer, a' 72 Bench and a '72 Aaron. I purchased a nice group of cards from a dealer, including a 1961 Yaz and Eddie Mathews.
Overall, a great show for me and I was in my car heading home by 2:15 p.m., a real rarity. Tomorrow is Gonzaga, my best show. I plan on pricing some extra cards tonight for the show and am looking forward to some cake (preferably chocolate).
