I’ll call this a successful Fall Expo.

The Fall Expo in Toronto hasn’t been as kind to me in recent years.  The main reason for this is that I now attend with a much more specific list.  When any of several hundred cards would do, it’s easy to come away happy.  When you’re after three or four, all vintage, and you’re picky about condition, it gets a little tougher.

This year, if I couldn’t find the guy selling 1950’s SCG 80 cards for $10, I wanted to do as much as I could of the following:

1957-58 Topps #1 Real Chevrefils (first card in the set – easily bashed)

1957-58 Topps #66 Dave Creighton (last card in the set – easily bashed)

1973-74 OPC #166 Dave Schultz RC (dark back variation)

1973-74 OPC #254 Terry O’Reilly RC (light back variation)

Beyond that, I was hoping for maybe another ’57-58 to get me one step closer to having that set done.  How’d I do?

I call this a win.

      Thanks! The Creighton is the weakest of the lot, probably a strong EX, but it gets me to 60/66 of that set. Hopefully I can polish it off next year sometime. I’m also under 100 to go on the ’73-74 master set (one each of the light and dark backs).

  2. that sir, was well done.

  3. Damn ! I envy you. I wish there was a card expo down here. I walk around the flea market here and ask for hockey like aman with 3 heads. Well done, sir.

  4. The Expo…one day I will make it there. One day…

    LOVE the Fielder rookie! I have that one on my to-do list along with his auto. Also glad to see you fighting the good fight with the light and dark backs. Way to go and good luck with the rest of your list.
