My wife and mom in law jaws drop when they see me selling a card for 100+ lol

They just cant imagine why in the world someone will pay so much money for cardboard.

I pray for the day I pull a card that sells for a few thousand or even 10k+ card like a Superfractor Auto of a hot player. I think they will have a heart attack that day lol

My dad tripped out when the Animal Kingdom Patch Card he pulled out of a box of 2012 Goodwin sold for $300. He only opens when I buy a case and ask him to help.

similar story here. my grandmother donated my dads entire comic book collection to the kids at church while he was serving in Vietnam. he was sick to his stomach when he came home and found out. he was and still is very particular about his belongings and kept his collection in excellent condition. he tells me stories of the gems he had in there from his childhood (50's-60's).

On one Saturday I was at a show buying/selling/trading cards while my mom stood in line for tickets to go see Garth Brooks at Texas Stadium. I told her after the sell was over to meet me at the show.

A few hours later she showed up with tickets to the show. We walked around a little bit. She didn't know anything about the card collecting industry. I went up to one delaer that I knew and I saw that he had a Mickey Mantle Rookie Card. Can't remember what grade it was, but it was a nice card.

I asked him to pull it out and I covered the price on the card and asked my mom how much do you think this card costs? She knew who The Mick was and she guessed $300!!!!!!!!! The guy behind the table almost had a heart attack. I revealed the price, around $75,000!!! She said "that's almost more than a f**king house!!!!!" LMAO still thinking about that.
You did a better job this time I guess... A Very Funny Story better than your first attempt

When I was little and getting heavy into baseball cards, my grandmother who helped me start up my own shop told me when she was growing up she was kind of a tom-boy and loved baseball. She was a Yankees fan and had a bunch of yankees baseball cards.

I have always wondered what she had in her collection.

Jehovah's Witnesses came to my door once at like 8 AM on a Sunday (man and woman). Before they gave me the usual speech, I told them I was hungover and had some random ho in my bedroom. They weren't amused when I asked if they wanted to join us...

You could call Panini and see if they will fix it.

Then there was this one time that a fella in South Dakota was working on the highway, when a big rig pinned the left side of his body to the concrete. He wound up having to have his entire left side removed.

He's all right now.
