Default 13 years of my life for $85

Listed some commons on Craigslist. 6 5,200 count boxes, 2 3,200 count boxes, and a DVD player box filled with memories, hopes, excitement, disappointment, and hours of fun. There is no telling how much of my and my parent's money I spent on cards. From 1989 till around 2002 they were my life.

Talked to a guy yesterday and he came to pick them up just a few minutes ago. Wanted $100 for everything, but in all honestly I was ready to donate them to the Goodwill, so $85 was fine. Still have mixed emotions about it. It's almost like a part of me is gone now, as stupid as that may sound. Had to take a pic before he got here. Goodbye childhood.

I just did the same thing with my collection....except I donated all of them to a friend who does card shows.



It does get easier with time. Hang in there...

Just wanted to clean out the commons. Still have plenty of star base and inserts, and about 1,500 Ripken cards that are going no where.

I typically throw out or give away/sell my commons as soon as I get em so I don't have huge boxes of em, but yeah, in the back of your mind you probably always think "I'd like to dig out those old cards and take a look at em" lol
