Unfortunatly there isn't many card shows around here anymore so its about the only choice.I told one of the vendors about the Bench and he is going to sign up,should be a good contributing member and he has tons of vintage.
You have to get there early because there is about 1000 vendors and the place draws 10's of thousands of people,traffic jam city too.

Congrats on the pickups at the flea market! Might check out the local flea market when the temps start dropping into the 80s. Best regards, David

I've been there when I lived in Ohio and it is HUGE. Worth the drive if you are a few hours away esp if you are not just looking for cards.

Very nice!! There is a flea market about an hour away from us, but it isn't very good and half the card dealers don't show up half of the time.

Great pick-ups Clint. Do you know how far South Amherst is from Louisville Ky?

Its about a six hour drive Robert,
I know that for a fact because half the work force from the Lorain Ford plant transfered to Louisville when the plant closed,..

Todays pick-up,
1957 Topps #212 Rocky Colavito RC BV 125.00
I would grade it somewhere in the 5/6 range,.

I paid 25.00 for it,
There wasn't much to choose through today that caught my eye.One vendor had some 50-52 Bowman Indians I need but wouldn't budge on the price enough.I guess I can't find good deals all the time.
