They have a card show at the Sandusky Mall several times a year.About ten to twelve years ago it was a very good show, but then dealers began to drop off, just like in a lot of other areas. This summer it seemed to be on the upswing again. I don't know if it will make back to the way it was, but at least it's a good sign !
Our youngest son was visiting from Illinois and the show was last week-end. Our two sons, our daughter-in-law, granddaughter and my wife and I decided to check it out. Of course, the women all went shopping while we perused the card tables !
As luck would have it, Friday afternoon (we went on Saturday night), some young guy came in and dropped $5000.00 at the show. That's 5K ! He wiped out almost all of the dime/quarter/dollar boxes. Plus took quite a bit of higher end stuff. We did come upon one young dealer I know who wasn't there on Friday. So my youngest son bought his quarter/dollar box !!
I did find another table with some Tribe cards and others with some misc. bits of everything.I picked up one box that had all of this packed into it's cardboard confines.
One stack of 50 1980 Topps Giant Photo football cards.
One stack of about 75 1981 Topps Giant Photo baseball cards.
