Card Show Pickups: Vintage

During the weekend between my wedding and honeymoon, I was able to go to the CSA show at the Dulles Expo Center in Chantilly Virginia.  I usually make it to each show that they have 3 times a year.  I always pick up some awesome cards and this time is no different.  Here's the vintage cards I picked up:

I spent a bulk of my time sifting through the vintage bargain boxes.  One dealer in particular had 3 or 4 3200 count boxes of vintage cards for a buck a piece.  This card above of Mike Cuellar is my favorite of his in an Oroioles uniform.
No the writing is not on the card.  It is actually left this card in the penny sleeve to show you the great deals I was able to pull at the show.  The expression on Harvey's face looks like the flash of the camera took him by surprise.
As I was working my way back from the 70's to 60's to 50's I noticed a good size chunk of 55 Bowmans in the boxes.  I double checked with the vendor and he confirmed they were a buck.  This cards are not it mint condition by any means but they are acceptable to me.
There were even a few 54 Bowmans in the box too!  I really lucked out that these cards were in the box.  The owner said he had just transferred them from the 2 dollar box earlier that morning.

I put a pretty sizable dent in my vintage wantlists at this show.  I'm glad I was able to do it at such an affordable price too!
