The last of the anti-local pick-ups

The last card I picked up on my trip to Mobile is a good one. It's another one for my blog's namesake, Michael Jack Schmidt.

A very nice mini-silk replica patch card of Schmidtty's 1974 Topps base card!

This is only the second silk card I have in my collection, and got a really decent deal on it and the other items I bought from Big Hit Sports. If you are ever in the Mobile area, it's well worth the trip across the bay to the Spanish Fort area to visit BHS.

Thanks for the tip Sam, it worked out well for me.

Another pick-up, thanks to Sam

Yesterday, I started this little series about a shop in the Spanish Fort section of Mobile Alabama.
Today I continue with the second of three cards purchased from Big Hit Sports.

A 2013 Topps cut to the Chase die-cut of my blog's namesake.

This card celebrates Mike's 7th home run crown in 1984.
Thanks for taking a peek,
Have a GReat day!
Stay dry if you're near the east coast today!
