Flea Market Round Up VI - Vintage Food Issue Mania

Stopped by my local flea market yesterday right before they closed and went straight to the card dealer. He had a bunch of grocery bags full of cards that he had just bought. He was going through one full of basketball cards so I dug into one that had bazeball and pulled this bad boy out. 


An uncut Hostess box bottom of three cards still intact. 


I then started to pull a bunch of clean Kelloggs cards out. At this point he put all the basketball cards he was sorting back in the bag and told me for ten bucks I could take all the bags...


I now have 6 grocery bags full of cards to go thru, 5 baseball, 1 basketball. Yikes. 


I haven't gone through them all yet obviously but here's some of the Hostess cards I pulled out by skimming thru.


Schmidt!


I love the 70's


I got just a few Kelloggs cards, most in really good shape. Stay tuned to see what else I pull out of THE GROCERY BAGS!

Thanks for reading.

  2. That is awesome! After seeing the Hostess cards, I would have dropped the ten dollars, and I'm not even a baseball collector.

  6. Big, cheap mystery bags/boxes are the kind of things I pray to find at flea markets and the like. Looks like you have some cheap entertainment on your hand for a few days there!
