Flea market goodies

On most Sundays there is a traveling "flea market" (I guess that is what you call it) that sets up in various railroad station parking lots on Long Island, usually in Bellmore or Baldwin. I checked out the Bellmore one this week and was really impressed. There were about 50 tables of people selling all kinds of great old junk like old Star Wars figures and other toys, TV guides, CDs, and all kinds of other weird and random stuff. I walked around for about an hour and ended up picking up a few goodies - twenty packs of late-80s early-90s cards for $.50 each from one dealer, a box of 1989 Upper Deck Series 3 (always so hard to get these cards) for $5, and from another dealer the 1990 Series 3 and 1988 Topps Traded, both of them for $5. Now I finally have all 924 of Topps's wood-panelled cards of 1987!

If anyone has any trade needs for those three sets, let me know!

I also got a bunch of $.10 singles from yet another dealer. Most of these were star cards that booked for much more of that, but my favorite is this minor league card of Pookie Wilson holding a hot dog that has "Pookie" written in the mustard!


  1. Hahaha, that card is hilarious. Nice find!

  2. Wait... there's a Pookie Wilson AND a Mookie Wilson? I need that card!
