Another goal was to get a vintage card of a "superstar". Well I not only got one great player, but ended up with two greats on the same card.
I was able to get a card with Sandy Koufax and Don Drysdale. This 1964 Topps N.L. Strikeout Leaders card only set me back $3, and it was worth it to get a vintage card with these two quality Dodger starters. Koufax led the N.L. in strikeouts in 1963 with 306 while Drysdale was 3rd with 251. Jim Maloney of the Reds was 2nd with 265.
Some other items that I ended up with included about 20 1981 Topps cards off my want list which can be found here. I also picked up two and a half Royals team sets for a total of $2. I got the 1989 and 1990 Fleer team sets along with a group of 1979 Topps that was missing 7 cards.
My last card show post will highlight some cards from the 1956 Topps set that enabled me to fill my sample page. Look for it in the next couple of days.
