I travel quite a bit around my area (probably about 200 miles each day), and I try and stop whenever I see a flea market/antique store. But most of the time I see old dishes and 1990 Donruss baseball. Found one just this week that had an 800 count box of 1990 Donruss. Guy was asking $30 for it. I simply told him I'd pass.

No such luck for finding rare hits like you guys.

I can't remember for sure. I also picked up at a small show a massive hoard of original snapshot photos. There are a couple thousand at least. I have sold off a small amount but still have many left. An example of some I still have. This happened a number of years ago but I was at an Antique show in Superior, WI. A dealer had some rusty 1964 Topps coins and he wanted way to much for them. I saw one 1955 Armour coin in the bag and it turned out to be a 1955 Armour Mickey Mantle (correct spelling) coin. I asked how much and the dealer said "for the plastic one" 50 cents. I ended up selling it to Mr. Mint at one of the old State Fairgrounds shows in the cities for $200.00 if I remember correctly.
I believe I actually paid you only 30X your original investment for that pin and would do so again. I have only two such finds. One was a large group of autographs that included Koufax, Drysdale, Maris, Paige and many others. I paid $10 for each autograph. The other was six boxes of unopened 1976 Topps Basketball cards. I paid $20 a box and sold them quite a bit more. That was an awesome experience.

Default Old books store

My wife went into a used book store while I sat in the car with the sleeping baby. She came out 10 minutes later with a gift for me: “Head, Hands, and Heart” by Knute Rockne. It wasn’t until months later that I noticed the flyleaf was autographed by him. We did okay on that one.
Also, at an automotive swap meet last year, I saw a vintage Rawlings box with an unused softball in it. Got it for $3, and then realized it was autographed by the old Packer’s coach Lisle Blackbourn.

Maybe 15 or so years ago, I won a small lot of old baseball-related books in a local auction (I don't remember the books having any real value at the time; they were just cool). They sat untouched in a closet for several months before I decided to thumb through them. Found a 1908 Cubs/Tigers (I think that was the year) World Series ticket stub in one. Had it graded by PSA and sold it for something like $1,800 on the bay. I paid $25 for the lot.

Awesome story! Thanks for sharing. I much prefer these types of stories about stumbling into something vs. fleecing another person.

Default Dubuque Iowa baseball photo find:

I once owned a sports card shop directly across the street from an Antique Mall. One day I went to the Mall and began my browsing, the first booth located to the very right when one walked inside, sat an old antique wood dresser with its very top drawer opened. I peeked inside and saw a small stack of say ten old Cabinet photos. One happened to be a baseball team photo of nine players, the Cabinet photo wasn't priced so I walk over to the proprietor, and left as the new owner.

A year later or so I'm looking through the old version THE OFFICIAL ENCYCLOPEDIA of BASEBALL page 392 there it shows Ted Sullivan organizing the Northwestern League consisting of his baseball team in Dubuque Iowa. Thinking back I thought the Cabinet photo I purchased earlier was stamped DUBUQUE.

It took me a couple months or so to find the photo. After searching awhile I thought may be it got thrown away or something? When I did finally find it, yes it's stamped DUBUQUE, hence started my quest and research. The St Louis Antique dealer had already left the Mall---I am compiling my revised evidence for SABR (wish I had bought all the other family photos in the stack, some may have belonged to the baseball photo history?)---- until cheers!

Amazing finds everyone! This inspires me to check Antique shops and flea markets more often. The times I have been to Antique shops I mostly see 80's and 90's baseball cards. Only thing I found of some value recently was some low grade 1935 R89 Mickey Mouse cards. $5 each.

I have never found any good cards at flea markets. In the earliest days of ebay and the internet there were still some great rarities and deals. At the time, the prices were the market....I remember buying my first collection, E90-1 Young Boston for 800 dollars raw. And after grading....
