Early in June I went to a card show in Houston put on by Tristar. They usually do two big shows a year in the area and I hadn't been to one since 2010. I had 4 main goals: 1. beef up my collection of 1960s Phillies; 2. buy some cheap relic cards; 3. buy a box of early 1990s wax for not a lot of money; and 4. add to my collection of inserts. I was pretty successful on all counts. I'm going to take a break from Summer Clearance Trade posts for a few posts from the show.
I had accomplished the first 3 goals, was running out of money and endurance when I found a table with boxes and boxes of 25 cent cards. I bought 60 cards which included a lot of inserts I didn't have, some inserts I did have but of players I collect and some Phillies cards I didn't have. I managed to only end up with two cards I already had. I'll show these cards over a series of posts, breaking up the Summer Clearance Trade posts over the next few weeks.

Now for something completely different. While I'm writing this post, Venus was transiting the sun. I was following it on a couple of web sites. Here's what a live streaming site from a telescope in Norway was showing. Cool.
