Braving the heat - mining the quarter boxes

I stopped at the LCS to see if I could find cards in the quarter bins though someone was waiting on me and who'd want to be stuck digging through cardboard in a stuffy little card shop - especially when it was a particularly hot afternoon [101°F] in So. Cal last Thursday.

2011 Topps football Indianapolis Colts team card #328
2013 Panini Elite Extra Edition Anthony DeSclafani #62
2014 Topps Heritage Jose Molina #261

2014 Topps Gypsy Queen Asdrubal Cabrera #96 
2014 Topps Gypsy Queen Eric Hosmer #99 

2014 Topps Gypsy Queen Jose Iglesias #131 - I thought this might have been a retro uniform card, but it's actually a reimagined version of a Tigers uniform worn in 1960 for a promotion to honor the contributions of Spanish and Latino players.
2014 Topps Gypsy Queen Chris Johnson #247 
2014 Upper Deck football Tim Brown #2
2014 Upper Deck football Terrell Davis #4
2014 Upper Deck football Eric Dickerson #7
