Some quarters are better than others

Happy Father's Day to all you fathers out there!! 

The local card shop has opened, though they only allow 4 customers at a time in.  The shop is not my cup of tea, as I am definitely a bargain hunter.  This shop caters to the higher end box buyers, and though they do have a huge number of quarter boxes, I have never found a single card in them that I would have even plucked out of a dime box.

However, they seem to do quite a bit of business, so the collectors in my area must not be clones of me!

Since I have been itching to get my hands on some cards, I made the trip and spent some time there. Like 40 minutes, looking at anything that I would consider a good deal.  I ended up spending a quarter.  One stinkin quarter!!

But for my money (haha, horrible pun), I scored a deal!

91 Fleer ProVisions complete set!

Now honestly, a quarter might be about the going rate for one of these sets.  Maybe 50 cents.  Maybe $1.  Don't really know, don't really care, I left the shop feeling like I got a good deal, and that's all I was really looking for.

Not only do I love the fronts of these cards, but they also have very detailed, great backs:



  1. Wow. My local shop doesn't have anything like this. A dollar for a junk era pack of Pro Set football might be the closest to this kind of deal.

  2. Awesome deal! I am currently trying to put together some of these sort of sets from the late 1980s to early 1990s.

  3. Wow. Nice find for a quarter. I'd probably spend up to a buck too.

  4. Was this from Super Sports Cards?
