Default Had a fire sale today

Everything that was on fire was for sale.

Burned around 50,000 cards. I tried almost everything to get rid of them any other way. Couldn't even give them away and was tired of storing them.

I spent an entire day going through binders full of star players. Sorted them to remove all the doubles so when i sold them there would not be several of each card. Ended up with 218 nine pocket pages and listed them in the auction section. I ended up getting $1.15 after shipping for a whole day of work.

Now if another half million people do the same thing the they might actually be worth something.

Did you try Craigslist for free? With (10) 5K boxes worth and you still couldn't get anyone to take them, that is surprising? First thing I thought was where do you live. I checked and see your profile lists South Dakota, so there is your problem! Next closest collector of cards is a day away! Kidding, but wow, I would have taken 50K worth of cards just to entertain myself going through them. I even tried a Craigslist add for any card pick up/removal at no cost and didn't get a single hit for anything.

LOL, That's only on a good horse and a clear trail.

I saw your auction and almost bought it just for the 9-card pages. But then I remembered I had bought about five hundred pages at a yard sale for $15. I have a tub of about 30,000 right now that I'm going to donate to my church's next community yard sale.

Congrats. You must have used a gallon of lighter fluid. Some of those cards are hard to burn...........I know from experience.
