Quite a few folks showed up at my table with cards to sell. I turned down a 1969 Topps set, feeling the condition just wasn't there. I pulled out a 1934 Diamond Star Jimmy Dykes from a box of cards. The rest of the box was a mix of 1950s common baseball and some football stars from the 1970s. The seller wanted $200 for the box, I didn't think the value was there. I bought a 1968 Topps football poster of Bart Starr, a 1964 Topps Giants Warren Spahn, a 1956 Topps Sandy Koufax, and autographed post cards of Felix Mantilla and Joe Jay. I was too busy to walk the room so I don't know what I missed out on other dealer tables. I ate a piece of cake and some sloppy joe. I did notice quite a few of Chicago dealers were set up along with a couple of guys from Kansas City and one from Detroit.
After the show, I went to pull up my car and walked out into a wet, ugly blizzard. I learned long ago to keep all my cards in plastic bins, so the cards were safe. But I got soaked with wet snow while loading up my car. The roads in Milwaukee had a few inches of slushy snow on them and driving was hazardous. It continued to snow hard from Milwaukee to Kenosha then it turned into rain. I took it slow and made it home in one piece, all and all, pleased with the day.
