The very name of this blog shows my frugality. Most of my cards originate from bargain repacks at dollar stores I notice while going around town. It's easy, and it's a quick trip down another aisle when I swing past there for coffee filters, a Sudoku book, or whatever. It's always great when I see a card peeking through the front of the pack that I had no idea existed prior to seeing it. The Barilko and Glencrosses I recently posted are the perfect example of that.
Given that, what could get me to shell out more that a dollar for a single card? Perhaps because it mentions the coolest baseball related thing I'd ever seen in person.
Memories. That's why I'll occasionally spend a smidgen more.
