So, for those of you who saw my lot I bought a couple of weeks ago...this is a follow up...

I had a "sale" yesterday, just posted it on Craigslist and sold 2 800 count boxes of my 3 cent cards for $32 (I had advertised they could fill an 800 count box for $16 and) and had tons left over from my pickup from a couple of weeks ago that I had bought for $80, and I hadn't sold any of the "good" cards.

So, I saw another lot for $50 on Craigslist. There were a lot of cards...maybe 5-8000 cards. Fair enough price, but looking through, I found very few stars, no inserts or parallels, and worst of all...alot of late 80s to early 90s....a few 2002-2004, and even some 70s and 80s vintage, but I couldn't bring myself to spend $50 on it. I flipped through a little bit more and did see an interesting "game used" card....A Ronald Reagen seat card from Topps. I'm not big into seat cards, but thought it had potential....but I also knew that the lot would likely not hold much else...I offered $30 figuring I was getting a tupperware tub, a binder and pages, some hard card holders..he took it.

I have gone through most of it now..and will give some highlights...

Just stay out of my territory Dylan! biggrin.gif You can have everything East of Grinnell! Actually, there was a lot in New Sharon that I was interested in...just didn't have the cash right now for another purchase..It doesn't take much of an eye, when your average purchase price is under a penny..there is little risk and the person is usually selling just to get rid of them
