I almost immediately realized I had brought WAY more stuff than I could fit onto one table, so I decided to show off some of my more interesting "hit" cards, my Brewer collection, and some of my favorite and/or most visually grabbing Griffeys. The 24 karat gold reprint of Griffey's 1989 Fleer rookie card was one of the more popular items with the visitors (thank you Google image search for saving me some time):
The kids seemed to get a kick out of the 1992 Upper Deck Comic Ball hologram that shows Wile E. Coyote trying to trip Griffey:
However, my rare reprint of the "Original Baseball Card" was definitely the highlight for my table. Almost everyone was interested in that one!:
Preparing for Collector's Day also had another huge positive side effect - it finally forced me to spend some time organizing my collection! I now have 2 giant binders full of nothing but Milwaukee Brewer cards, a binder full of cards for my "Common Card, Uncommon Photography" series, and a couple binders full of miscellaneous star cards, old 1990s inserts, and other random cards I like. All in all, a great experience!
