It's a bit overdue, but here are the pickups from Robert Morris. I hope you don't mind me being a few months late - tomorrow I'll get back to recapping my experiences from Day 2 of my National getaway. While the National was an amazing experience, and I picked up a year's worth of cards in my two days there, perspective can be interesting. See, a lot of the online chatter I'm reading about the National is that the show was very vintage heavy. And don't get me wrong - there was plenty of vintage, and quite a bit of cash changing hands because of it.
But nothing about the show's vintage presence seemed overbearing or unreasonable. In fact, I'd say I found the amount of vintage there to be underwhelming. At least my kind of vintage. See, the Robert Morris show had a similar issue. I spent most of my money on vintage, with nary a good dimebox or pile of Ginter minis to be seen in the building. But when in Rome...
The Aurora Laser Cut Bettis was actually sitting in my COMC card for months, so I was thrilled to grab a copy for a mere $.25, rather than the $.99 cent on COMC. I busted a box of 1998 Aurora somewhere around 1999, pulling an awesome Peyton Manning from this same insert (along with Moss and Payton RC's), but I absolutely had to add the lone Steeler from the insert.
I'll be back tomorrow with more goodies from the National, including my first box break of this decade.
