Card Shop Trip, March 16, 2013, Finnigan's Sports Cards

I usually make a trip to the card shop once a week to look for some deals to increase my collection. I'm not a huge collector of high priced cards, and don't normally buy packs. So when I go to card shops I'm looking for specific cards to add to my collection, because the limited space I have. 

Like most weeks I went to Finnigan's Sports Cards in Albany, NY where deals can be found.

There was a box with more current loose hockey cards. I've picked through this box a few times before but I usually go back because people are constantly opening packs and sticking the cards they don't want in there. I pulled some

Here's what I got:

2012-13 NHTD Cards, including Tim Thomas, Jonathan Quick, and Henrik Lunqvist, and others (I was on vacation when shops were giving them away for free so I was happy to pay a small price to get these).

2011-12 Upper Deck Andrew MacDonald, 2011-12 Black Diamond Michael Grabner, and 2012-13 Upper Deck Matt Moulson for my New York Islanders collection.

2011-12 Black Diamond Corey Crawford for my goalie collection.

In total I picked up 40 hockey cards for $2.00, as the cards in the bin were 20 for $1.00.

I also picked up a few cards for my Lou Gehrig collection including 2001 Fleer Greats of the Game, 2009 Red Turkey, and 2013 Topps Mini.

While these weren't a huge purchase it definitely added to my collection.
