Card shop trip

I had some time to stop at this particular shop I don't get out to, but perhaps only a few times a given year - I guess this card shop has a deeper selection of cards to dig through because the owner basically rents out display space [probably between at least four or five different people], though the cards start to look the same because they feature mostly spring training teams.

I picked up 'old' Photofiles 8x10's of Torii Hunter, Michael Young, Ichiro x2 for a dollar each - I picked them up to get autographed, though Ichiro seems like he's on his last legs as an MLB player and never was an easy 'get' in the first place.

I picked up a lone 11x14 top loader $2 - maybe I'm trying to branch out to larger photos and need something to protect such photos.

Eight quarter cards - labeled from a specific box owned by a display space renter.

Assorted quarter cards - I think these are the store owner's boxes; I guess he just had all the cards 'as is' for a quarter each, even though a box was marked '8 for $1' and a box marked '4 for $1.'
