Its been over five months since I’ve given an update on the uncle’s cards. Its not that I stopped going through them. I just hadn’t found anything really worth talking about. This past weekend I worked my way through the last few boxes. There were lots of base/inserts from the 90’s and 2000’s, but nothing that carried a whole lot of value. Even if I had found an individual card, it most likely would have been damaged. Many of the cards in these final boxes were beat up pretty bad. The most promising stack of cards I came across was a ton of 2001 Bowman Baseball. I was hoping to find an Ichiro or Pujols rookie, but it never showed up. The only note worthy card was a Miguel Cabrera #299 error, but it wasn’t in the best condition.
The last bin I went through was stuffed with loose cards, extremely thick holders which were empty, and old albums. Working my way through the clutter, I did find three sealed boxes worth trying to sell:
1993 Topps Traded Factory Set
2010 Topps Factory Set w/ 1958 Mickey Mantle Gold Chrome
There really isn’t much to look for in the box of 1995 Fleer. The 1993 Topps Traded Factory Set has Todd Helton’s best rookie, but that’s about it. All the value is in the 2010 Topps Factory Set which has a 1958 Mickey Mantle Gold Chrome card.
