for full disclosure I sold my entire collection except a few auto balls I got when I was a kid or my kids gave me as presents.

A few scorecards, programs and a few auto pictures. 1 set of Nasa cards over 3 series from Kennedy space center. a few kelloggs 3 cards I had from the 70's

I do have a package going out to maple19 it will be there soon, it is well deserved and hopefully guys you wanted

I am not going to abandon my duties here to suitable replacements are found

Now how do I feel??

The thought of selling has been bothering me for years now. What if I died suddenly and stuck my wife or girls with this massive assemblage . They know little to nothing abut sports let alone Rookie cards etc..

Reed from dave and Adams was on a cross country buying trip, I invited him in early June, he came reviewed and planned on coming back after the nationals. He came back 8/23, i had a price in mind and he spent all day evaluating my vast collection, In the end , I settled for a much softer number than I intended but I still rolled. Its not often you can sell something of this size lock stock and barrell , but it happened.

I helped Reed load it all (there is a video on facebook reed made Friday) and away it went.

I am relieved. I no longer have any anxiety over a hobby that grew insurmountable. I may miss it from time to time but onwards and upwards!

So my bucket is gone as is 4,000 lbs of cardboard and plastic!

Yeah, I might be on the same boat soon now that you actually have me thinking about it. Sadly I might step down myself and move on to other things. I deleted my Facebook, quit my job at the college as of last night, gonna finish my last semester and go from there. sad.gif

and an update

Its still all gone! but...

Ive been cleaning the basement on weekends with little or nothing else to do and..

in the safe I found a little old Vault box that I was sure was empty...I had to actually locate the key to open it. Its fireproof so it was heavy empty or not..


Well it wasnt empty at all... ohmy.gif

and while sorting thru memory tubs (that is what we refer to them as) I found a tub within a tub.. and in it.. A treasure trove of schtuff well too me anyway.

One of the highlights was a Mantle auto I got in person in the late 1970's at a show in St louis. I had long forgotten about a lot of this stuff but was tickled pink to actually have some things to admire and maybe have a future show and tell..

Cheers to what was an amazing collection of cards and memorabilia. Glad you still have something left to share.

I had left the hobby for a while and sold a few things on the 'Bay but my 13 year old and 9 year old sons got me back in it as a new hobby store opened up around the corner before Corona hit.

They marvel at the stuff I have and they will get once I go but just like my dad and I in the late 80s collecting, I have the same feels with my sons when I watch a box break or when we go to Target to look at all the cards for sale that I did back then. I guess that is what it's all about.

To think I started on this site when I had one kid who wasn't even one. Now I got 4 with my oldest at almost 16. Even though it's a shell of it's heyday, I'm glad it's still here.
