Though, the purchase of the day, was made by Tony Schaefer who bought seven sets from another dealer including '60, '61, '62, '63, '68, '69, and '70 Topps. An awesome amount of cards. The '63 Rose was a beauty. We all drooled over those sets. This was about the coolest purchase I have ever seen anyone make.
Other than the theft of my binder, it was a good show. I generally enjoyed myself and bought and sold a pile of cards. I would like to set up at the National next time it is in Chicago in 2013, though this time I'm not going to bring any binders. I'm also going to set up at the Sun-Times show in November and am not sure if I want to bring binders to that show. I think it is best if I leave the binders home at the big shows where thieves prey.
Tomorrow it is back to the grind of the day job. Next week is Orland on Saturday and Gonzaga on Sunday. I'm going to try and price a ton of cards before the Orland show. I appreciate all the sympathy I received from other dealers and collectors. There are too many good people in this hobby to let this theft get me down. Though, if anyone happens to catch the thieving bastards, please hold them down for me so I can bust 'em up a little.
