Card Shop Stop

I didn’t buy a box of Allen & Ginter. I didn’t even ask if they had any. I don’t have that kind of mad cash burning a hole in my pocket.

I really spent more than I should have, and my total was less than $8. But it’s really difficult to leave a card shop empty-handed. Here is what I grabbed…

1994 Collector’s Choice Ken Griffey Jr. Checklist…x3. Yes, I bought three of them. One for myself (and I might even already have it), and one for each of my boys. We’re all Griffey fans in this house, and nothing short of steroids is going to change that.

2003 Play Ball Tom Seaver. I just love the retro-type sets, and being a former Red is a bonus. For a quarter, I couldn’t pass it up.

2003 Topps Gallery Sparky Anderson. Another former Red, and maybe one of the most beloved by Cincinnatians still today. Plus, it’s an art card…I LOVE BASEBALL ART.

2004 Topps Jim Palmer. Someone help me out on this one. Is this one of those short-prints from the regular set, or did Topps put out a retired stars set in 2004? In any case, he’s a Hall of Famer, and he was inducted the same year as the best second baseman in Reds’ history (no offense to you, BP).

I also picked up the team set that was given away at the ballpark a few weeks ago. This is one of the games that I try to never miss, but it seems that it was held earlier this year than normal and I just missed it completely. $6 isn’t a terrible price for it, though, and the designs are usually nifty. I was disappointed that Heisey was omitted, but Leake is in there so I can’t complain (too loudly).
