There was a nice flow of customers at my booth today. Dave was extremely busy all day. Scott seemed to be busy most of the day, as was I. Tony S. seemed to have his moments where he was busy. He has an amazing inventory, I don't quite understand why he isn't mobbed with customers. There are some cards in his display case that I have been drooling over like a Turkey Red Ty Cobb, a '54 Red Heart Stan Musial, '33 Goudey Tris Speaker, along with some great T206s and T205s.
My brain is a little foggy after nearly 48 hours at the show and I'm trying to remember exactly what I sold today. The morning was slow for me and I made very few sales. I sold some '62 Post baseball to Andy from Orlando. Then I took off to my favorite sandwich shop in the world -- Notolli and Sons on Belmont Avenue. I picked up some footlong Italian subs for my boothmates. When I got back to the show, Dave handed me a nice little pile of cash. Apparently, Dave sold a bunch of my cards for me. I immediately flipped the cash over to another dealer for some card debts. Then I got a big rush of customers and had a tough time finishing my sandwich. A father and son duo from Connecticut purchased quite a few mid-1960's stars, including a '66 Topps Jim Palmer rookie. I sold a '78-'79 Topps Pete Maravich and a 1970-71 Topps Trio card #1. I sold a 68-70 Topps Bobby Orr to a customer from Phoenix, Arizona. A customer from Ohio bought quite a few commons from the 1960s. I sold a card to the publisher of the American Bar Association Journal. Long-time customer TJ came by and bought some Play Balls and early Bowman baseball. I sold some '66 Philadelphia football. I sold a '34-36 Diamond Star Al Simmons. Brian picked up a '68 Topps Roberto Clemente. I had quite a few more sales, they were quick, and I can't seem to remember what I sold.
I actually didn't buy anything today. Nobody brought me any deals. I did start to walk around, covering only 20 percent of the room. I saw some nice cards but prices were just a little too high for me to pull the trigger. Steve, from Jim & Steve's Card Shop in Waukegan, IL, had some '64 Stand Ups at reasonable prices. I may pick up some of those before the show ends.
I priced some more cards tonight to bring out to the show tomorrow. I have to go to my real job in the a.m. and Dave will be watching my stuff. He made great sales for me today and I hope his luck continues tomorrow. I should be at the show around 12:30 p.m. Check out the photos below.
