Card Show Haul: Gibraltar Trade Center 1/6/13

First card show of the year, and it only took me six days. Nice way to start off the new year if you ask me. I once again made it out to one of the Gibraltar Trade Center shows this weekend. While I was there, I was mainly on the lookout for dime and quarter boxes to help fill in some of my PC projects. While it's tedious to do sometimes, I still love sorting through these boxes because you never know what you'll find and its just fun to see things you've never come across in the past. 

I managed to get a little bit of almost everything as far as my PC projects go. There were some nice inserts in one of the $0.50 boxes and a ton of great base cards in the $0.25 and $0.10 boxes. Here is a quick summary of the how I spent my money at this show:

Parking/Admission = $2.00
(10x) $0.10 Box pickups = $1.00
(20x) $0.20 Box pickups = $4.00
(8x) $0.25 Box pickups = $2.00
(8x) $0.50 Box pickups = $4.00
(1x) $1.00 Box pickups = $1.00


While the total isn't all that impressive, I'm not really one to go into a show like this planning to throw down hundreds of dollars on high-end stuff or boxes and packs. Just because the stuff I get isn't very expensive, doesn't mean that it's not important to me. I actually love the fact that I can come home from a card show fully satisfied by only spending $14. I got some cool stuff for a handful of my PC projects, got to chat with a few other collectors, and will have plenty of stuff to write about here on the blog.

Now I need to get to work scanning and writing up some posts for these cards. Should be plenty of updates for my various PC projects, so stay tuned for those.
