Unboxing The Uncle’s Cards #1

The word “unboxing” is usually referred to when opening a brand new product, but I guess in this case it can work too.  For the longest time my uncle wanted me to go through his in-law’s baseball card collection.  I said sure, but it wasn’t until last summer that I actually got the collection in my hands.  As my uncle opened up the trunk to his car, I knew this was more than just a box or two.  It was many boxes in no particular order.  The boxes have been sitting for months, and I’ve only recently started making my way through this mountain of cards.  Luckily they aren’t in a hurry.  I wasn’t sure what to expect, but I thought it would be fun to report on anything good I found to sell for them.  I’m about six boxes into this little project.  The first few had junk.  But the last couple have started to spit out some gold nuggets.  Take a look!
