So, let's get to it!
At the bottom of one corner of the second banker's box there was an unopened wax box of 1988 Topps.
Thee were some sets in the banker's box also.
Speaking of things that don't interest me:
There were a couple of 300-count boxes packed with cards in top loaders.
Jack Concannon was one of the many terrible Chicago Bear quarterbacks. For those of you who are curious, that's what a 1965 Topps football card looks like. You'll more than likely never see another on this blog again.
Alright, enough delaying. Bring on the fun vintage!
It gets better. My collection
The cards were wrapped in rubber bands, which literally broke into dozens of pieces when I tried to extricate the cards.
I have to admit, seeing rounded corner cardboard, bound by rubber bands, really got my blood pumping. It was such a cool find that I had to race upstairs to show my wife. She never really pays much mind to my hobby, but she flipped through the cards with what appeared to be genuine interest. That, in itself, makes this find something special!
Johnny's Trading Spot. I wonder if he could use some 1954 cards of his team of choice? Or maybe John would enjoy the 800 count box of 1990 Donruss I found in the first banker's box?
Random 1954 cards, including Preacher Roe and Johnny Sain. I actually have heard/read about two of these guys. What was it... Spahn and Sain and pray for rain? Cool!
For the record, all of the 1961 and 1954 cards were purchased at the estate sale auction I mentioned in the previous post. I found the auction receipts and claims at the bottom of the box. I wish cardboard could talk... I would love to know how well traveled these cards are and how many collections they have passed through.
Well, that's it for the highlights of the second box. That leaves us with two 5,000 count monster boxes and one large random box to go.
Stay tuned and thanks for reading!
