The Chicago Sports Spectacular Was Spectacular

1955 Topps #124 Harmon Killebrew RC

The title says is all. After not being able to attend either the spring or fall shows in the last few years, I was able to make it to the 2019 spring Chicago Sports Spectacular show.

A few weeks ago, I opened a loaded box of 2019 Topps Heritage. The result was about $300 worth of cards (after eBay fees). With the extra money in my pocket, I decided to look for a graded 1955 Topps Harmon Killebrew rookie.

I ended up finding five Killebrew rookies that were PSA graded and in my price range. Near the end of my browsing, I came across a dealer that had a PSA 5.5 and was asking $200. I offered $180 cash and he agreed. Yes!

On my way out I made my way back to a dealer who had a 1956 Topps Harmon Killebrew PSA 4 for $55. I offered $50 and he took it.

Both of these two Killebrews have been on my list for at least twenty years. I don’t know why I haven’t been able to pull the trigger and purchase them in the past, but this time it just felt right.
