It has been a busy time for me with the weekend in Strongsville, my show the following weekend, and Gonzaga the weekend after that... whew!
The April 14th Gonzaga show was phenomenal. My sales were excellent. Jason got things going with a purchase of a 1970 Topps Thurmon Munson Rookie. Then there is another regular customer who has the coolest Milwaukee Braves gear, he purchased some 1970's hockey and some Braves cards from the 1960's.
A new customer purchased some 1970's Topps baseball. Tim purchased a ton of stuff including my 1953 Topps Satchel Paige. A new customer picked up some 1950 Bowman baseball. Dean purchased some 1965 Topps baseball. George found some 1963s. Larry bought some 1954 Bowman football.
A regular customer purchased some 1954 Topps baseball. A new customer purchased some 1960 Topps baseball. A dealer, who is working on the 1970 Topps set, found a whole bunch in my binder. One of my autograph hounds purchased some 1964 Topps to send out for signatures.
A regular customer bought some 1959 Topps baseball, including an Early Wynn, and some 1980's football. I can't give away 1980's baseball but I seem to be able to sell 1980's football. And those of you reading this with a warehouse full of the stuff, I don't need any more, I have a warehouse as well!
A regular customer purchased some 1933 Goudeys. Robin purchased a 1968 Topps Al Kaline and Willie Mays. Andy was in town from Orlando and I don't think he was enjoying this cold Milwaukee morning. Though, he did purchase my T206 Hal Chase.
On the buying side, I took in quite a haul. I don't normally buy from the auction because it is difficult to man my tables and watch the auction at the same time. Though an auction for some old baseball gloves caught my attention and I ended up bidding and winning five gloves, including two Mantles. My glove collection is getting out of hand!
Someone showed up at my table with a 1969-70 Wilt Chamberlain, which I purchased. Then there is my regular guy who always brings me a box of vintage. Today he brought me a box filled with 1968 Topps baseball and a small bag of 1956 Topps pins. I probably paid a little more than I wanted to but I rarely see those pins and wanted them badly!
I also picked up a 1968 Topps Roger Maris from Scotty P. and a nice group of 1934-36 Diamond Stars from Jerry.
Another amazing day at the Gonzaga show. I'm hopeful for more of the same at the Gonzaga show coming up on June 9. See you there!
