We Have A Winner

A couple of posts ago I displayed all of the loot I had acquired from last Friday night's card show. It was the first show I had ever been to in the great state of Maine, and I was pretty happy with what I ended up with.

At the end of the post I asked all of you out there to guess how much you thought I spent to acquire all of that cardboard booty. The closest to guess how much I paid (and you could go over) would win some cards.

To refresh your memory, here's what I bought:

There were eight guesses. Here they are in order of submission.

Night Owl - $50
Jafronius - $42.50
Nick - $60
Stealing Home  - $45
Reds Card Collector - $35
Dhoff - $28
Robert - $40
Junior Junkie - $42.39

First of all, I find it odd that Nick, author of the fantastic blog "Dime Boxes" came in with the most expensive guess.

Second of all, I knew I everybody would guess higher that what I actually spent. I would have too. (That's why it wasn't "closest without going over".)

So to recieve all of that cardboard goodenss, I had to shell out....

20 bucks.

Dhoff was the closest at $28, so I will be sending him some cards.

Thank you all for playing.


  1. All that for $20 is quite a steal! I learned my lesson...never underestimate the bargain hunting power of my fellow bloggers!

  2. And I need to stop guessing with LA prices.

  3. I thought things were pricey here in the northeast. Apparently it's just New York!
