From the 10 cent box I pulled Houston Cougars........
first guy to do an 'end zone dance'...... for which you can either be annoyed or appreciative.
Otis Birdsong is the #2 scorer in Houston's hoops program history and a guy I knew quite well from my days in the Athletic offices.
Eugene “The Hitting Machine” Lockhart was a bad ass linebacker at UH but he ran into legal problems after he NFL days. Too bad.
I also landed a few non-sports cards, mostly to round out my take to an even dollar amount. i always like adding Presidential cards. And who doesn'y like cards of attractive ladies?
Then it was off to my last stop, another dealer on the back row who had interesting stuff for fifty cents and a dollar a card. I stuck to the fifty cent box which was full of mostly well worn non-sports stuff.
I spent about five dollars at this table and bought some cards from sets I have wanted to sample but never at eBay prices. These are from the 1954 Bowman Power for Peace set, the 1956 Topps Presidents set and Topps' Flags of the World set also from '56. Below is a sampling of these.
