I Finally Went to a Flea Market - It Has Been a Few Years

 The flea market that I prefer opened on Sunday and I was able to check it out.  Between COVID and a golf course job, I hadn't been to this place in a few years.

I enjoyed a nice walk through the place, even though it was windy and cold.  Lots of people were selling cards and even some Starting Lineups.  I picked up a few sets (1986 and 1987 Topps) because they were $3 and they looked to be in great shape.  

The $3 bin also had a couple of basketball sets from the junk wax era, but they had Jordans as well as a few cheaper insert sets so I grabbed them too.

That price led me to grab a few other smaller sets.  I didn't spend a lot of time checking the sets before buying them because if they didn't take the Jordans, they certainly didn't take out other stars.  

One 400-count box was labeled on the side as some football set that I didn't want.  When I put it down I noticed that they wrote Schilling on the side.  I opened it to find only Curt Schilling cards - 400 of them.  No rookies, but probably a nice lot for someone.  Who in Chicago kept all of those cards of Schilling?   Does anyone want to trade for a box full of Schillings?
