My card partner Pat is a bloodhound. He scours Facebook, Craigslist, our local auctions and anywhere
else that lists sports cards for sale. He will travel over an hour if there is a remote chance to find cards.
Sometimes the results are no cards but he still finds sports related memorabilia, sometime only junk era
cards but once in a while there is a pot of gold at the end of his chase. This is the 2nd estate sale that
has resulted in gold in the last 3 months. This was a garage/estate sale that said sports stuff. He got
there and found a couple of sports items. Pat always asks if there are any cards. This mom says her
kids have a few totes of cards for sale. There are 3 totes full of cards just thrown in willy nilly.
A. I have a "bloodhound" buddy too. He is constantly looking for stuff on CL and FB. It's kind of an art and always fun to see what he finds.ReplyDelete
B. There were some pretty nice finds in that tote. In an era where people treat cards as treasure, I'm surprised there are still people who would toss a Jeter jersey card or Hrabosky autograph into a tote without any protection. On the other hand... the whitening on the edges of that Hrabosky kind of gives that card an "authentic" vintage feel.
I need a bloodhound card buddy, how much do one of those cost?ReplyDelete
I'm a pretty good bloodhound myself, sure wish I had a bloodhound buddy too. Those tubs must have been a lot of fun to go through!ReplyDelete
Love the jeter!ReplyDelete
Yeah, I definitely need to know someone like this. It sounds like fun to dig through yard sales and local meet-ups, but I always find myself not having the time or energy.ReplyDelete
Looks like fun. I like that Kareem, just a very cool looking card.ReplyDelete
I wouldn't be able to keep up with a friend like this.ReplyDelete
