"Sanitation Man Leaves Nephew $35K+ Unopened Box Of 1966 Football Cards"

While cleaning out his late uncle's home, a nephew found a complete and unopened box of 24 sealed five-cent wax packs from the 1966 Topps football set. This holy relic is up to $26,000 in early Goldin Auctions bidding.

It's just crazy trying to picture the uncle handing out sealed packs to kids during Halloween. I bet all the kids were disappointed and threw theirs in the trash.

"Dammit, what is this crap? I want a Snickers!"

Default Throwing Out Football Cards

I hadn't thought of the kids throwing away Namath, Butkus, etc. I wonder if any of them remember receiving those cards at Halloween.
