Here's a nice picture of where we're at with The Collection.
I'm not sure if I'll leave things separated by year and brand as they are right now or if I'll sort them by team, but the above picture serves as a nice measuring stick for where we are in this exercise.
This monster box was much more exciting to sort through. There was no rhyme or reason to the way cards were stored, which made it a slow process.
I found about 50 different odd ball cards. Most of them were food issued cards, which happen to be my favorite.
There was a decent amount of late 70s and early 80s cardboard in the box.
More on the trip north along I-55 in an upcoming post.
Here's a picture of some of the better non-junk wax era cards from the box.
I thought about leaving these last two cards out because they aren't baseball related, but they are fun!
This one is a sticker from one of the first movies I remember seeing when I was a kid.
The second 5000-count box was full, but about seventy-percent of it was from the beloved junk wax era. So it goes.
There's only one box left and it may be the best. Stay tuned!
