Get a Uhaul, and come get these cards!

Help!!


I purchased a collection today and it was a all or nothing deal. I have already taken all of the pre-80 material, but as you can see there is a ton of untouched stuff left over at the person's house that I have purchased. Complete Topps sets from 1981-2008, tons of Donruss, Fleer and UD sets, etc. Quite a bit of unopened wax as well. I didn't even have time to go through it, so I don't have a much detail what is in there (other than what the owner told me, but bottom line, I really don't want it. I have 3 weeks to move it out, and I got it rather cheap, so if someone is interested in it, let me know. However, you have to go pick it up yourself. It is located in Northern Missouri. If you are serious about it, shoot me a PM and can discuss details.

    The white metal box with the red top - w/lock looks like a repainted exhibit card machine from the 50s - do you know what it is?

    I was thinking the same thing. That is insane and looks like too much fun.

    I got complete sets from '60 to '80 with a few being partials. Mostly mid to lower grade, but still worth it.

  • ill send my team of shirpas to haul that back north.
  • stevekstevek Posts: 27,442 ✭✭✭✭✭
    Wow - I think I've seen modern crap heaven. LOL

    Actually, for the right price, and if ya have lots of time to do the selling, ya might be able to make a decent buck selling it, or at least have a lot of "modern crap fun" with it. If I lived there, and the transportation costs would be nil, I'd take a shot at it for the right price, with the hope there are a few winners in there.

    I've received lots of offers on this and lots of questions. I agreed to buy this for 1k, and would like to recover some of that cost, but if I don't, no big deal. I'm at the point now, whoever wants to go, can get it for free. The only caveat..... you have to take it all!!

    I prefer '91 Fleer. It's really the only thing those bright yellow pieces of crap (no pun intended, :Funnyimage are good for.
