One more Estate Sale post

Since I have lots of time, I was going through the estate sale boxes a second time to do a little more sorting.  If I already haven't said it enough, this was a find of a lifetime.  In one of the first 800 count boxes I checked, it was full of 89 and 90 Topps cards, I found another surprise at the back of the box.

More auto and jersey cards, about 100.  Our collector must have opened a lot of cards in their life.  He/she was also a multi-sport fan.

Hockey cards.

Lindros signed with gold ink.
