I love a good mystery and, while I usually pretty adverse to risk in all that I do - I decided to take a little risk on some mystery batches of vintage cards recently.
You guys know me - I love old cards. Stars or commons, graded or raw, sharp corners or water damaged - I love all types of old cardboard. Several "lots" of vintage cards came into focus for me on the Bay of E that really caught my attention. Some of the card were visible and I was able to recognize some quality names like Hodges, Aaron, Jackson and Robinson. I also spied a pretty solid spread of card designs across a three-decade spectrum - everything from a '54 to a bunch of '65's and stuff in between.
I was intrigued and the minimum bid was low...and, well, I probably had a beer or two as well.
I ended up winning a few and, for $40 total - this stack of top loaders (eeeek! and some just LOOSE in the bag) showed up at my door:
......some more....hey, a checklist!
I'm going to go through these a little bit more when I get a chance to run some stats and start showing them off.
Here's hoping I do okay - at the very least, I've been able to fill out a couple of pages for my vintage set pursuits!
