Does this ad from the November 23, 1948 issue of the Sports Collector's Digest bring back any memories for anyone? Check out the ads from one of the more notable dealers of the mid-80's -- MID-ATLANTIC COIN EXCHANGE! Are these guys still around after 25 years?
In their ad they have a complete 1959 Topps baseball set in VG/EX that you could buy for $295.00! Nah!!! That's way too much! LOL Or how about a 1967 Topps STARTER SET of 307 different including the likes of Aaron, Gibson, Maris, MANTLE, Banks, Kaline AND 20 high numbers just to throw in on the deal! All for the unbelievable price of.....drum roll please....$99! Who wouldn't give that in a heart beat now? Always mixed feelings looking at these ads. What do you think?
