Default Craigslist finds?

Anyone ever find anything on Craigslist? I know most of the stuff you see is 80's modern, but I was curious if anyone has found anything interesting?

This is about as close as I get:
Actively building a 1953 Bowman Color PSA 6-8 level set. Currently 120/160. Always looking to trade my dups for cards I don't have!

Most is junk but you can find some gems if you are persistent. Last year I bought a 73 Topps BB un-cut 5th series sheet that had two Schmidt rookies showing.

I bought a group of 11 T206 cards from a lady for $100. They fell out of the ceiling of a 19th century home she was renovating. Pretty bad condition but there was a McGraw and Marquard in there.

Default Years gone by

Back in the early days of Craigslist, I bought a 1952 Eddie Stanky Cardinals jersey. Name sewn in the tail...a beauty.

2 years ago I had a want ad posted on CL and got some responses. Most replies were bogus or offered junk, but one guy did have a nice, small raw collection of 50s - 90s cards that he sold me for $225, which included a 69 Reggie Jackson RC, 59 Gibson RC, 59 Mantle AS, Clemente, Kaline, Wynn and Killebrew, 54 Ted Williams, 89 UD Griffey, 76 Eckersley and Ryan (and a bunch of NM commons), 82 Fleer Ripken, and a bunch more - all together worth maybe $500 - $600). I got several graded this year. The Reggie came back a 4.5 (looks EX/MT), the Mantle got a 5, the Clemente and Killebrew both got 4s, and the Gibson got a 1.5. I still need to get the Griffey graded. Looks Mint.

So, if you're willing to put the time in and put up with meeting a few people who claim to have vintage cards (won't send pics) and bring 1991 Conlons of HOFers when you meet, there's a chance to find good stuff

I purchased a t206 Elberfeld Washington for $5 from a dealer who contacted me from my craigslist ad. There was a poll about whether people thought it was real, which the majority thought it wasn't, and which I started questioning myself until I sent it to an expert who confirmed it was.

A few years ago a lot of N173 cabinets showed up on CL, from Arizona but they listed them in NY too. I think they eventually got to an auction house via whatever dealer bought them. Craigslist seller knew they were special but (in my memory) was using CL as a reasonably easy way to sell. Sorry my memory is vague -- they were out of my league but it was a thrill to see good stuff show up... Maybe someone here saw them too or bought them.
