Junk wax oddball sets are an awesome piece of nostalgia. I am slowly finding these oddball sets as I go through my cards again. This time, I re-discovered the 1989 K-Mart Dream Team set.

Fanatics Authentic Card Show Recap

This past weekend was the Fanatics Authentic Sports Spectacular show at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Illinois. It was roughly a 45 minute drive from my house, but I got to spend the next five hours rummaging through 25 cent bins and drooling over old cardboard.
