Default Huge collection, 70s 80s 90s!

Hey all! I came across a fellow sound engineer in Nashville who has a well taken care of card collection just collecting dust (on the boxes only) and he'd like to unload it. I went over to his house this morning to take a first hand look at what he has.

I'll say from the start, a big part of this collection is the mid 80's to mid 90's garbage. You know, all those cards and sets that we were supposed to be able to retire on? :lol: However, he does have some pretty cool stuff, like Stadium Club Photo Proofs, a boxed Upper Deck Hologram set, completed Topps and Upper Deck sets.... and yeah, I know... ho-hum, let's move on. Some of it's cool stuff but doesn't hold too much value. Then there's the other part of the collection, now I can't say to anyone, GET EXCITED!!!, here's the hidden gem!.. or anything like that. The 40min I was able to spend looking at just a fraction of it all, I didn't come across anything that made my jaw drop or my heart beat out of my chest. But I also can't say, there's not anything in there that wouldn't. I simply don't know.

What I do know is that he does have boxes of 70's football and baseball and a little basketball. I don't know very much about the "vintage" stuff but most of it's in really good condition. No rubber bands were used in the storage of these cards! Even after taking a peak at it, I'm not sure what he's sitting on, nor does he. He was hoping I'd have a little insite. The best I could judge and based on the shear size of it, maybe he's looking at $800-$1200 as a bulk dropoff...I don't know.

I'm just wondering if there'd be any interest by anyone on this site.

I love taking my chance on stuff like this lol. I think he asking price is high considering 80s and 90s cards are worth pennies each and you have nothing specifically mentioned of any value. Maybe try craigslist, as this would def require a local pickup only.

Some unopened 80s topps packs from baseball and football. And also various cards from sets of those years as well.
