While not a gold mine acquisition on the level of recent scores by Bo and VFTSB, I'm still pretty happy about it.
I'd estimate it at about 2,000 cards. It's roughly about 35% baseball, 45% football, 10% basketball, and 10% other (racing, hockey, and various miscellany). Yeah, I'd rather it was mostly baseball, but oh well. I figure I can easily find $22 worth of cards from it that I want, and stock up on trade bait and Listia fodder with the rest. Heck, you gotta figure the handy plastic tub itself is worth a couple bucks, so it was essentially a penny box for me. Can't beat that.
I'm going to start with the "other" since it's the easiest for me to sort and I'm still working on the baseball, football, and basketball.
I found a few hockey guys I've heard of, so I'll add those to my tiny hockey collection.
Here's the rest of the hockey. Trade bait, anyone?
There were a fair amount of racing cards. I don't follow racing at all, but (if you're a regular reader, you're probably sick of me mentioning this by now) I collect Jimmie Johnson because I went to high school with him (he was a senior when I was a freshman). So at least I've got one
I might also keep this Danica Patrick card... because... it insists that I do.
I must obey.
Here are the rest of the racing cards. More trade bait. Anybody interested in anything? Raz?
Here's some other stuff I also don't want. Do you? Presidents, UFC, golf, Elvis, etc:
So now we've scratched the surface of the dimebox. Stay tuned as we venture into the 3 bigger sports.
