The serial investor learnt the tricks of the trade early at Barcelona’s flea market
In 1982, Carlos Blanco Vázquez started earning extra pocket money by selling old football cards at the age of 13. He would often travel by subway to sell the playing cards of lesser known football players at Mercat Sant Antoni in Barcelona. Young Blanco quickly learnt how to flog his wares to memorabilia collectors at the local flea market.
