Picked up some good stuff at the National Sports Collectors Convention last week. Overall, a good show.

Those bread cards are very cool to look at - nice color and poses.

They are cool. I usually don't collect cards packaged in food products but I like their look. The Bread for Energy (BFE) football cards are much more difficult to find than Bread for Health. BFE's are part of a multi-subject set (both sports and non-sports cards) and I was surprised to see one just sitting in a display case full of a whole variety of vintage items at the National.

Looking for the Otto Graham BFE if anyone has one to sell.

There are only 15 Eskimo Pie Cards (2 players/card) = 30 players known to exist. Although the cards say 32 players. We'll I think I found the missing link at the National (on the floor from a collector). The Eskimo Pie Premium Card - replaced one of the cards. No one in this hobby I know has ever heard of this card/sticker, and who would have saved it. At best they would have redeemed it. I think its very rare and pretty cool.

Wow, nice stuff above. Here's a $1 purchase from the National: a couple of miscut 1967 Topps cards. Not too impressive, but I am using them to piece together what an uncut sheet looked like. You can see my progress here: 1967 Topps virtual uncut sheet.

Picked up these three All American's at the National at a great price. Big thanks to Publius for the Bruiser. He had some unbelievable 48 Leaf and 35 Chicles in PSA 8s- amazing cards.

Sorry for the crappy iPhone photo. The scanner is out for now.
