    I know there's a few card collectors at SJ, so I thought I'd post this. Some really old and fascinating cards he was able to find.
  2. Saw this last night. Really neat story.

    I wrote a story on a couple renovating a house a few years ago. When they removed some baseboard in an old bedroom the wife found some 1952 Topps cards.

    I was shocked to see that none of the cards in that guy's attic were 1989 Fleer Gregg Jeffries rookies or Billy Ripken error cards.
  5. Those are in my closet.

    I'm no collector, but I wish I had a Bill Ripken error card.

    I went to my parents' house last weekend. My mom said she had "some" baseball cards of mine from when I was a teen/in my early 20's she was going to package up so I could take them back. She said they needed to clear out some space.

    Mind you, I was an avid collector up until the mid 90s, about the time I lost interest because there were just too many card companies offering cards that cost more than I wanted to play. And my mom was out there looking for deals for me and bringing stuff home.

    I still didn't expect three suitcases full of cards.

    I'll give you $10 for the Billy Ripken.
