In my last couple of posts, I've made reference to being out of town for two weeks. On Father's Day, I headed up to Northern California for a two-week training for work. The training was in the city of Roseville, which is about 15 miles outside of Sacramento. Let me tell you, it is tough being a Dodger fan outside of the greater Los Angeles area. Sacramento is pretty much in the Giants/A's area, so the one Dodger vs Giants game that was televised on ESPN2 was blacked out because it was in the Giants region. I pretty much was relegated to following my Boys in Blue via the internet and my phone apps. The weekend of June 22nd and June 23rd, I decided to explore and see if I could find a local card shop in the area. I had to go to a few cities over but I did find one. As you can imagine most of the cards in the display cases were of the Giants and the A's.
Lucky for me, the card shop had a 10 cent box where I was able to find the 16 base cards you see pictured in the post. Not bad for a lazy Saturday afternoon. I also decided to pick up a hobby box of 2013 Bowman baseball cards. I'll post about what I pulled out of that box later. A shout out to Teammates Sports Cards in Carmichael, CA, for allowing me to kill some time in their shop!
