Next Stop, Sacramento #1

This past weekend was the some what quarterly Toy/Card Show-as I have ranted before we only have a few in such a large metro-I suspect because we have a large population of immigrants the Card culture hasn't really taken hold yet-it will but it hasn't yet. I think the Card show at Serramonte may be a dying thing. Of Course, I only collect one team and once I have hit the vendors and wipe them out that is it. However, I noticed fewer card vendors than previously. Any who it was wonderful to see Mr. Fuji, the legendary blogger of San Jose Fuji and friend of the blog Mr. Haverkamp. I will do a two or three part posting. First off there was only vendor with a dime box. There were several with $1 boxes or 25 for 20-yep a real bargain. This first part will show the Yadi pickups, autos, and other Redbirds. Then I will show off the wonderful vintage magazine from Mr. Haverkamp and vintage football. So why Sacramento? I hear there is a show there-Sac is about 2 to 2 1/2 hours from us but does have several breweries we haven't been to. Weekend get away with mi sposa.

More Redbirds!

To wrap up  post #1 Redbird Autos and relics-Sam the courtesy of Mr. Fuji whom I joined when he was in the middle of $2 autos and relics. The McCarver relic was the best score for $2

  2. You can never go wrong with $2 autos. Although the player is not the greatest, the Orange Wave Refractor is my favorite.

    1. I wish I would have found those boxes at the beginning-but thankfully not many Redbird collectors here. The orange wave is fantastic and the scan doesn't do it any justice

  3. As usual... it was great seeing you again Brady. Sorry I left your bag of goodies at home. I'll definitely get that to you at the next Serramonte. By the way... that McCarver is awesome! Love seeing relics of old school players. Let me know how the Sacramento show is. If it's the one at the hotel, it's small but pretty good.

  4. Always good to see you too-hopefully I will make to Sac-The MacCarver was the highlight-not much recognition for some folks-as he has been announcing sooo long
