Selling My Childhood...

The past few months have been quite a whirlwind.  I've sold everything.  Then I bought a collection of cards, and sold it.  Then I bought another collection of comics and ...and sold it. 

Right now, any and all lingering cards from deals and purchases are gone!  If his name isn't Canseco, I don't have a card of him right now, aside from a few cards I'm holding for someone until this weekend. 

The past few weeks alone, I scored a killer card collection and a killer comic collection that I had written about.  Each was a HUGE rush to get, but now they are gone.  Sure, I have plenty of other stuff to sell, but as far as cards, there is basically one thing left:  my Canseco collection. 

I don't know why I get like this, but if I don't have any sports stuff to sell, I start selling pictures on my walls...anything!  The blaring thing that sticks out right now is the Canseco collection.  The collection I have worked on for the better part of 25 years. 

There are about 3,000 cards, several autographed 8x10's, a few autographed baseballs, game used cards, etc.  All of which is for sale.  I spent an hour or two today taking pictures, doing some videos, etc. 

I have put in a small cubby in the hutch of my desk the picture I took with Canseco, the ball he personalized for me, and a few of my favorite cards I have of him.  On the wall next to me is the autographed bat my wife got me, and a few autographed 8x10's of him. 

Here are a few pictures of what I'm keeping: 

Hopefully this makes me look more like a fan, and less like a serial stalker!  (Seriously, y'all - it was getting out of hand.  Too much Canseco stuff on my walls.)

Oh, and in case you were wondering, the collection I have up for sale is at $999.33 obo on ebay with $40.40 shipping.  Pictures and videos of everything are there as well:

Feel free to make an offer!
