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.
