Thrift Treasures 84: Jesse “The Body” Ventura autograph, “error” WWE cards and SF Giants SGA set
Lately I’ve been getting back into professional wrestling. Laugh if you want, but it’s always been that thing in the background that I’ve always found entertaining. This is all makes sense because in about two weeks I’ll be attending my first WrestleMania. So it would seem fitting that this edition of Thrift Treasures is heavily wrestling-centric.
On Friday I made a trip to two thrift stores in the area and the first item I located for sale was a baggie of random wrestling cards for $1.49. This baggie looked to have a stack of 2009 Topps cards and some other odd Topps WWE cards I’d never even seen before.
The condition of the cards was obviously not great, but I figured it was worth a trip down memory lane.
The base 2009 Topps cards were interesting. There was an early Brie Bella release, a gold parallel (/500) Kane, a pair of CM Punk cards, and many more stars.
OK, you’ve seen them. Do you see the two errors? One is Brock “Lesner” instead of Lesnar, and the other is …
The next item I located was yet another signed book for my growing collection. This book is signed by a politician/professional wrestling legend Jesse “The Body”Ventura. Pretty neat find for the price.
And the final item is a 32-card 2011 Topps Emerald San Francisco Giants Stadium giveaway set featuring second year cards of Buster Posey and Madison Bumgarner, as well as a rookie-year release of Brandon Crawford.
Total cost of these treasures: $7.47
