Thrift Treasures 102: Nomo Mojo for $5
Surely you’ve heard of “weekend warriors,” a phrase that has been given to many groups of people including those who run around to various garage sales and flea markets looking for treasures.
Well, have this week I was a Wednesday Warrior.
I went to visit a friend who recently had surgery and during this trip I also visited a mid-week flea market that has turned up some treasures for others. The pickings were slim got a sports guy like me, but I did find a single binder that for $5 was too good to pass up.
It’s crazy to think this, but it’s been twenty years since the baseball world went crazy for Japanese star Hideo Nomo. His stuff was blazing hot, and among his most sought after cards was his primary Japanese 1991 BBM release.
Well, this binder just so happened to have the basic Japanese rookie card, as well as four other subsets from that same set. Additionally, it had more than 30 total Nomo cards, most of which were from 1995, his MLB rookie year.
