Putting In My Ten Cents (Part 3)

Here's the final post featuring what I bought at the last card show. The previous two posts are here and here.

I've picked up a few of these cards here and there from the 1988 Fleer Star Stickers set, but I've never seen a complete set, nor have I seen this many singles available at a show. I picked up forty-two of the one hundred and thirty-two card set.

Two from the 1986 set made it into my stack of cards as well.

If I see Hostess cards in a dimebox, I will buy them. All of them. Even if I already have some of them.

I picked up three from the thirty-three card 1989 Toys 'R' Us set (I think the Alomar is a dupe)...

...and three from the twenty card 1989 J.J. Nissen set.

The thirty-three card Quaker Chewy Granola Bars card set from 1986 will one day be completed. Five more cards found their way into my collection.

There is no information on these cards, other than it is a twelve card set produced by ASA Inc. in 1983. Doesn't matter, I grabbed them anyways. I have eight from the Duke Snider set... from the Juan Marichal set,

one from the Brooks Robinson set,

one from the Frank Robinson set,

and one from the New York Yankees.

If anybody has more information about these, by all means speak up.

I also picked up two more cards from the 1979 TCMA Baseball History Series set. This card features Duke Snider, Roy Campanella, Gil Hodges and Carl Furillo...

...and this one features Jackie Robinson.

I found one card from the 1981 TCMA Wausau Timbers Minor League set...

...and this Gaylord Perry from the thirty-five card 1981 TCMA 1962 San Francisco Giants set.

Finally we have made it to the last card. This is from the 1980 TCMA Columbus Astros set. The dealer had quite a bit of these minor league TCMA cards, but at this point I had pretty much hit my budget, so I only picked up a few.

The damage to my wallet for all of this was just over 20 dollars. Damn, do I wish I had a bigger budget.


  1. TCMA needs to return. We need inexpensive cards like those. Great pickups -- especially on the tight budget!
