OK .. I made it back from the US by only spending $100 on trading cards.
Dedided to spend the money insead on a new Laptop for my wife so she wouldn't have to fight me for the computer .. and I can spend more time posting to trading card central
first - I'm suprised that Wal-Mart has the best prices on Laptops .. the PC world near my office was selling the same PC in £'s s in dollars . and the exchange rate is around £1 = $1.75 these days.
As far as cards .. I was boring .. fought the masses in Toys 'R' us in times Square to buy a 2005 topps base set (like to get one every year) for $50 + a few of those multi packs and a $19.99 retail box of Turkey Reds.
No real good pulls .. only one jersey .. and that listed in the Latest Beckett (which I also picked up) for $5-$8
