I have posted a few items from this weekend's card show.
But I wanted to write one more about the best part of the show. As we were leaving my son was looking at a Detroit Tiger album and found an Ivan Rodriguez Fleer Ultra Game Worn Jersey Card. I am no expert in these, but he was pretty proud of the find.
The price was $10.00, and he only had $5.00. The dealer saw him looking at it and asked him if he liked that card. My son said yes and continued to stare at it.
I asked the dealer what his best price was and he said $8.00. He looked up at me and said he wanted a special card for his first card show.
The dealer asked, "Is this is your first card show?"
He replied, "Yes."
The dealer told him he would give him a special student discount and give it to him for $7.00.
He opened his duct tape wallet and showed him his student ID card, while I handed him an extra $2.00.
The dealer smiled and handed him this card.
He thanked the dealer and had a smile from ear to ear. I don't know if we over spent or not and I don't care. The point is this was a special day for him and for me and he couldn't wait to show his mom.
On the way home, he told me he is going to start a "Pudge collection". I told him I thought that was a great idea!
Days like this, finds like this and dealers like this are what makes this hobby great!
