Ali for $30 a item. Those kind of prices would be nice today.

My God, The Greatest, Koufax AND Campy! Even if Roy were say 50 bucks, you could get all three icons for 100 bucks, which with inflation is only like $200 today.

This was a couple years later, in New Orleans, but the Mick's price "jumped" $6 whole bucks to $18 an auto!

The prices, and the names, my gosh. These seem to be from around 1991-1992, a couple of large scale card shows in the LA area.

It's Super Bowl Sunday, so I guess I might as well throw up some ancient (mostly football pics I just scanned).

These were taken in the summer, probably July, 1990, at the NY Giants Football training camp on the campus of FDU, Madison, NJ. We frequented there quite a bit, it was great!

QB's Phil Simms and Jeff Hostetler approaching.
