A post-weekend cardboard binge

I went to my LCS today to pick up a card that I bought on Ebay from him and also browse around the store for a few little pick ups. After about an hour of wading through a box of cards, I found an awesome stack of Dbacks and Rays cards!!!! I was so pleased because they would not only bolster my collection, but also give me some trade bait for pretty much the first time. While this was happening these 3 people came in trying to sell cards and memorabilia  but something was wrong with them. They were sweating and stumbling all over the place! I have never felt like I was going to be hurt by someone before, but these people made me feel that way. After about 10 minutes of the owner telling them that they do not buy the things they were selling the guy and his female friends ran out. They also stole all the cards that were on the counter. I could not believe the disrespect. It's not the first time that I have witnessed something like that, but to think that they stole those cards just made me sick to my stomach. Thankfully they took nothing of real value, but I still have a queezy feeling in my stomach.

I ended up finding 10 of the cards that I originally had in my pile, and I only paid .50 for all ten. 
Here are a few..... I'll post my Ebay pickup tomorrow!
