Reader Joe M., like many other collectors, was not happy with Topps Mayo. Having purchased a box during the first week of release he knew that was it for him. That is when fate intervened.
Yesterday he received a call from a guy running a card show. Joe was asked if he wanted a table and knowing that there’d be plenty of set builders present he decided to go for it.
A few hours later Joe headed to his local retail outlet and picked up two blaster boxes of Mayo knowing he’d likely sell off any singles pulled. In his first box he found a 1/1 printing plate of John Elway but it was his second retail box that yielded some real Cardboard Gold.
In his second box Joe found a Cornelius Vanderbilt 1894 Subway token!
Not too shabby for a day of Retail wax…
