The Atlanta Find

Back in early 2006 after a delivery to the Atlanta metro area I stopped off for fuel and some eats. That's when this guy pulled into the lot:

He had a winning smile and plenty of cards for sale. How did I know he was legit?
When you wear socks like this I know you have mad business skills. He probably had Def Leopard blasting in the van on the way to the Flying J. Seems the dealer needed money to buy candy as he had none I saw. That is when I confirmed that the Cincinnati Test Issue was actually in more than one area. The dealer showed me a great selection of rare inserts and asked what team was NOT my favorite. A smile crept across his face as he handed me the second greatest find off my adult life (JStar being the first).

2005 Topps Die Cut Atlanta Test Issue
All cards are 1 / 1
How lucky can one guy get? Two 1 of 1 finds of regional test issues in under two months? This is what make America so great. No matter were you are, there is always a Mets hater nearby. Thank you Mr. Mobile Baseball Card Dealer!
