A Lot of Tigers: 1950 Bowman

Getting back in the blogging groove after almost two weeks of hibernation.  Even though I haven't contributed posts over that time frame I haven't been completely dormant.  Rather, I have made quite an addition for the holidays.

But we have to go back to the summer to somehow come full circle.

I am always on the lookout for new card shops, or those that are new to me is just fine. We had a wedding in the Detroit area, I had some time to kill, so I started looking for an LCS, I found one advertised in the Beckett magazine, found the official Facebook page for the address and they had "hours of operation" posted, shouted the coordinates to Siri and I was off. 
This place was tucked away in a residential area, weird.  The structure was similar to that of like an old auto repair shop with tall garage bays.  Anyway, the place primarily operates on internet sales, they weren't really thrilled by my visit, said I could order online and pick up if interested.  Weird.

That was more for me than you.  So I have been keeping an eye on their web sales and a cool lot poked up before the holidays, 275 cards from 1950 - 1978, with shipping AND tax (seriously, a whole other topic) worked out to be about seventy cents per card.  So I accepted the challenge!

I have never been more satisfied than I was from this lot of vintage Tigers...
