I don't have the opportunity to visit the US that often so when I go I want to make it worthwhile. That's why I couldn't simply visit just one LCS and found one more to visit !! So after I visit Orlando Sportscards I paid a visit to Big League Cards, a 1 1/2 hour drive but it was worth it and a fun visit with my boys !!
It was a fun shop with nice people around. Here as well they had some Pokemon cards so I bought my boys several packs that kept them busy for a while. The owner even gave them some additional special packs so they were a happy bunch !!
Chatting a bit to the owner, a really nice guy, he indicated he was the inventor of the Allen & Ginter RIP card and has been doing work for Topps for many years !!! Anyways, also great to meet nice people but in the end we were on a mission, a mission to score some wax !!!
The shop had a nice selection and a decided to buy a few singles as well as two boxes. I took one box of 2015 Museum Collection, my first high-end break ever, and a box of 2015 Diamond Kings.
I noticed a few 1888 Allen & Ginter cards in the shop and was immediately intrigued. I didn't own any cards yet from the 1800s and I love Allen & Ginter. As the price was not really that expensive here's my first Original Allen & Ginter card from 1888, meet the Sparrow !!
I starting to really like these cards so I might be on the look-out for some more of these in the coming years !!
The second single I picked-up was less exciting, just a single Glavine for my Glavine PC ! For completeness here it is !
Be on the look out for the Museum Collection & Diamond Kings Box Break reviews in the coming days !!
Thanks for visiting my blog today !
