165,000 cards locked and loaded...

Ok, so I thought I was going to be getting 300,000 cards this weekend, but it turned out to be 165,000 which of course is perfectly fine - the plans are to grab the rest after Christmas.  Sunday afternoon, I met at my friend's storage unit and loaded up my family-mobile minivan sans the back seat, and drove back.  I had several binders up front with me, and there was a binder filled with 1981 Donruss poking out.  That was kind of cool - I saw some good names like Mike Schmidt and others.  I also found a bunch of Star Wars cards that my son will be excited about too. 

It always takes a while to load them back up in the garage there, but it is worth it.  I enjoy the heck out of going through them. 

There is such a variety - from a nice little 1989 Fleer "For the Record" insert cards page, to 1991-92 Upper Deck basketball with various Jordans and Mournings to 2001 Bowman Heritage. 

I have probably gone through about 6,000 or so so far.  Great fun!  Some are damaged, but that is to be expected.  The majority look good. 


  1. That is a BOATLOAD of cards you got there! Hey, do me a favor and check out my spam project -

  2. Holy Crap how did you get away with that while being married?

  3. she is a GOOD woman :) That, and I don't keep cards all over the place. The majority of my cards are not at our residence.
