The Greatest Dime Box Ever? Flea Market Round Up VII

Ah, living in Florida can be glorious sometimes friends. Baseball is everywhere you look this time of year and the weather is perfect. Also there's always plenty of flea markets to hit for the collector on a budget (me)

 I had to drop my wife off at a class yesterday and had some time to kill so I made the drive out to Oldsmar Flea Market and boy am I glad I did. The first vendor I stopped in to see if he had penny sleeves and pages and when he was pointing me in that direction I spotted a shoe box marked "10 CENTS"


The rest is history. 


Paper loss? I know what club Drysdale played for those years. 


I didn't realize till I took a picture of this that it's signed!


My three favorites, Joe Morgan rookie cup!


The variety was crazy. This isn't everything either I grabbed something for most of you as well.


Sorry I'm letting the cards speak for themselves, I really have no words other than I think I got the deal of a lifetime.

    1. I did but I picked out most of the 50s,60s cards. I got so many 70s cards in the Grocery Bags

  8. Parker and Garvey rookie cards for a dime? Fisk autograph for a dime? Vintage HOFers for a dime? Yeah... I'd support your statement of this being the best dime box ever. Congratulations!
