Friday at the National

I got to the National on Friday.  I kept my plan and spend just less than two hours in the room.  I managed to at least walk past each table except for those in the corporate area.  Did I see everything?  Of course not.

I was hoping to go today, but I got home at 2:30.  I didn't want to hurry through the show again, so I will go Sunday without major time restrictions.

The picture below shows all of my purchases other than eight Sportscaster cards.


The Crawford cards are a bit blurry, which I've seen a lot with that card.  The Jenkins looked great.  The Stop N Go cards are nice - I need Cowboys for an extra set.  The 1971 football cards aren't great but I'm working on VG sets since I can't afford nice ones.



The Jenkins card looked great when I bought it.  I put it in a bag without any card saver or top loader.  When I looked at it again tonight I saw all of these cracks.  I don't think I missed them yesterday.  Is it possible that the card cracked in one day?  The card was not in any holder when I bought it either. 

I did see more Kellogg's cards than usual at the show.  Tomorrow I should have more time to see what remains.  Highlights - I was a 1971 football set that looked great and there were two unopened packs that I found so far.

  1. I've had 3-D's mysteriously crack in a seemingly short period of time. It definitely happens.

  2. That's a first for me. I plan to re-organize my Kellogg's cards in the next few weeks before I get busy with school.

    I didn't move the card from the book bag, which stayed in my room. I'd be upset if it were a card that I paid more than 50 cents to acquire.

  3. Thought about you yesterday when I was at my LCS. I saw complete sets of the 1981 Kellogg's Baseball and I think a 1975 football.

  4. The 1981 baseball sets are everywhere. For football, they only made the cards in 1970 and 1971. The 1971s are hard to find in nice, clean condition.

  5. Nice pickups. In regards to cracking... what's your preferred way to store single Kellogg's lenticular cards? Do you typically put them into penny sleeves then into a top loader?

  6. It varies. I'm only putting flat ones in top loaders now. Those will some curl I will put in nine-card sheets.
