The Card Show!

I had trouble thinking of a witty title for this post, so I kept it simple. (Not that all of my other titles are especially witty). I am planning to go to the Philly show tomorrow as usual. They usually have a nice amount of tables and lots of things to look through! I've been slowly but surely tackling away the Phillies team sets from the 50s and 60s from this show. Seeing as there is about to be another one.. I never showed what I got from the last one

Everyone saw the Jordan rookie that I traded for, which was obviously the biggest card I got by far. But I did receive some other little goodies.

A couple of pretty cool vintage autos. The Bouton I grabbed cause I am currently re-reading his book ''Ball Four". It's still a great read and very enjoyable. The Virdon I grabbed well cause its 1963 Topps and if Adam out there wants it, I will gladly trade it to him.

The card on the left Mr. Jonathan Herrera.. I just liked his signature. Looks like he signed it "north" no idea why. The Joe Savery is my continued quest to get everything Phillies.

This I got from a dealer for the price of a blaster! I had never seen this auto before but I more or less know the market for Howard cards and was comfortable buying it. I've become a bit more selective in my Howard purchases, so this auto being on card was huge! He does not have a ton of on card autos out there. Tons of stickers though!

Here's hoping we complete another team set or 2 at the show! Hope everyone comes out!

For those who don't know happens a few times a year.

(I am in no way affiliated with the show just wanted to try and inform the card collecting community)

Thanks for reading!


  1. Team Phungo will be hitting the show on Sunday. Enjoy, but try and leave some good stuff for us folks that can't get there till the last day. :)

  2. Thanks for the offer Brad but I already have two 63s that I got autographed in person. If the reason you got it was for me than I will trade you something for it but I don't specifically need it.

  3. Nice! I just recently pulled the Bill Virdon Real One auto from '12 Heritage that is a reprint of that card. Awesome stuff!

  4. Cool stuff. Now you mention it, it is indeed rare to see Howard on card autos.
