White Plains Card Show Review Part 1

Hey guys, Drew back here. I have been extremely busy lately, yesterday I had to go to church, watch the Jets move on (YES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!), and I had a friend over (Rule #1- Don't post when friends are over). Anyway, I'm doing a short series on the show in White Plains for the next few days, so, part 1 is right here waiting for ya!

Part 1:

Well, another awesome day to recap for ya. Very sunny day on Saturday in White Plains, and definitely a great day to spend a ton of money on cards! I had quite a bit of cash on me, and watch out when you have 300 tables full of cards! First I'll start with the stuff you all can care less about, the free pack of junk that kids get when you walk in (game used are 1 in 5 packs, I got one of those 4 boring ones), and the stuff I picked up for sets! So, first off a little list of those cards, then the video with some of the cards mentioned is at the end, here we go:

Free Mixed Pack:
- Bunch of 08-09 Basketball Cards (notables: Grant Hill, Rasheed Wallace, Stephon Marbury, Andrei Kirilenko, Elton Brand, Michael Redd, Derek Fisher, Joakim Noah, Tony Parker)

- 2008 Piece of History: 12 Cards, Best one was a Joey Votto RC, still need at least 25 cards for this set

Here's the video, nothing special in this post but did finish off the Allen & Ginter base set and sketch card set which means that


It was fun completing the set and I definitely think it was worth it (once I get a binder haha), so, another set down! Sadly, I may do the 2009 206 set but I'm thinking about it. Some cards in the set didn't come out great but some are nice. See Ya!
