Thrift Treasures XXXVI: The Duke of Earl
I dig through the shelves and racks at thrift stores, garage sales and the like looking for something that I can keep for myself or flip for something awesome for my baseball card collection.
I tweeted a picture of the uniform, and a few months later, I was asked to write a piece for Beckett Sports Card Monthly documenting the incident, and this extension of my hobby.
The magazine hit my local hobby shop shelves on Tuesday and should be in your stores now.
Whether you decide to buy the magazine or just read it is up to you, but I do encourage you to pick up the magazine and give the article a read. It’ll give you a taste of what kind of success I’ve had thrift store hunting.
Many people see second-hand stores as a place where poor people shop. I see them as bearers of history and sometimes treasure.
