Card show fun!

This past weekend my wife and I went to the Philly Show in King of Prussia. We went on Saturday because I wasn't able to get an autograph ticket for Carson Wentz (sold out real fast). The crowd seemed to be pretty strong and some new vendors. Lots of super expensive vintage and a decent amount of modern and a couple wax dealers with a nice selection. Saw one real cool piece (forgot to snap a pic) a Abraham Lincoln cut auto. The guy was advertising it for a future auction. (estimated between 5-10K for that piece).

The big card I was able to snag was this one..

1963 Topps Willie Stargell rookie. I really bought it for the John Hernstein, but regardless its a nice high number from that year. Obviously not in mint condition but very presentable card which is what I strive for in my vintage collection.

Also grabbed some 1966's for my Phillies team sets.

Inching closer to completion. After getting this done I have to go back and catalog what I'm missing of the multi team cards. I have a few but I'm sure I'm not complete. The ridiculously expensive Grant Jackson card comes to mind.

Have some more cool stuff to show in the next post.

Thanks for reading!


  1. Nice Stargell rookie and I've always loved the sixties multi player cards.

  2. That Willie Stargell rookie is fantastic!

  3. Oh man, what a great Stargell!!!!!!

  4. Love the Stargell RC! The 63 Topps floating heads are an odd favorite of mine.

  5. I am super jealous of that Stargell
