November 13th Flea Market Pick-Ups

I had the morning off today so we took a stroll down to the local Sunday flea market.  Aside from the two card tables that are set up, there really isn't much else too interesting to be honest.

I ended up leaving with a few new cards to add to my collection.  I'm pretty sure I walked away with the edge deal-wise.  Let me know what you think.

Mark Messier / 2008-09 Upper Deck Black Diamond Quad Jersey #BDJ-MM - I took this Messier two color quad game-used jersey card off the hands of one of the guys for $5.

Tommy Salo / 2001-02 Upper Deck SP Authentic Sign of the Times #TS Auto Buyback - I also got this card from the same guy for $5; it's a buyback card inserted into packs of 2004-05 Upper Deck SP Authentic.

Shane Doan + Jarome Iginla / 2010-11 Panini Playoff Contenders Draft Tandems #11 - I found this card in a binder at a $1.  Really like the look and idea of this set and hope to find more around; also there aren't many cards showing Iginla in a Dallas Stars jersey.

Joe Sakic / 1990-91 Upper Deck #164 - Sakic's second year and first card from Upper Deck for just a quarter.

Mario Lemieux / 1990-91 Upper Deck #144 - Another nice card from the original Upper Deck set for just fifty cents.

Paul Kariya / 1998-99 Topps Gold Label Class 1 #51 - This was the first card that I decided to pick up and for only a quarter I got this nice looking Kariya. I've never heard of Topps Gold Label before but I'm really liking the design.
In total I spent $12 - I think I did pretty good.


  1. I agree, that's a nice haul for just $12.

  2. Love the 98/99 Topps Gold Label Kariya... I totally forgot about that product. Great design.

    Overall... nice collection of pickups.

  3. Not bad overall. And you're right on the Gold Label, I always thought they were sharp.

  4. Thanks for the feedback guys.

  5. I probably wouldn't have taken the Salo myself, but I would have jumped at all the other cards, for sure, especially at that price.

    I'm sure you could sell the Messier alone for $15 and recoup - but why would you, a two-colour quad-jersey!

  6. That Salo card is from 2001'02, I know because I have a huge Tommy Salo collection, nice card though, Book value is $10-15. Messier card is worth $30
