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.
