47 Cards to go until I have to find all those pesky short prints!

Overall, awesome show. A lot of awesome cards


  1. 1980 Topps Steve Carlton for 10¢ = Nice Find!

  2. Actually it was for $1. That was the one non-dime bin purchase I made, which was nice. Still, can't go wrong with a $1 Carlton.

    1. I agree... Carlton is one of my favorite players of all-time.
