This was the 2nd day of the sale which means everything is 50% off. It also means that anyone on the day before could have already purchased all the good stuff.
All the cards were in a back bedroom. There were literally hundreds of boxes and binders still available. We started going through some boxes along with 10 other guys who came in right behind us. They were all labeled with some kind of numbering system or the words commons or stars.
This collector had amassed a lot of cards. Only glancing in each box, I started setting aside some boxes. Pretty soon there were a lot of boxes and binders. My friend, who likes memorabilia, had also accumulated a pile and together we negotiated a price for the lot. We still didn't know what we had.
We split the pile up and each took some home. Over the next few posts I'll go over what we found.
Most of the cards were from the 70's through the 90's. Very few cards were newer.
