My mother got killed by a drunk driver. My brother and I ended up living with an elderly aunt and uncle. My not so wonderful grandmother and grandfather were executors of my mothers affairs. I had a really good baseball card collection going on because I was a enthusiastic fan.
I had some great cards of some tremendous players. Mickey Mantel, Ted Williams, Willie Mays, and on and on.

My grandparents sold my baseball card collection, my baseball bats, my catcher mitt and fielders glove, my bike, etc. etc.
I am sure my grandfather drank all of it away.
He was what they called a go getter. He always took my grandmother to work then he would go get her. I was old enough to start learning about human behavior and recognize what kind of person I did not want to be.
True story.


Wow, that's just depressing...

I had some baseball and football cards from the early 1970s (mostly 73 through 75). I sold those on ebay in the late 1990s. I think about $40 or more was the best I got--I think it was a George Brett rookie. I have a list somewhere what I got for them.

When I was in college the second time around and then working in the late 80s, early 90s, I bought a lot of BB, FB cards again. I never bought sets, didn't believe in them. I wish I would have taken that money and put it into some mutual funds instead. I still have them. I should go through them, find the best, sell them for whatever, and pitch the rest or use for insulation somewhere...

I bought an old 80s pack of topps from an antique store a few years ago. I had to know if the gum got better with age. It did not.

Wife had a metal lunch box full of 60s and 70s baseball cards. The lunch box was a Beatles with the thermos. Her mom sold lunch box full of all her cards for $10.00 at a yard sale mad

Sold my around 2005 or so. I had a he great collection. All from 1952 to 1971. Dozens of hall of famers. Sold at worse time. Prices were at a all time low. I think 40% of beckett magazine prices. Wish I had waited. My brother still has all of his. MD

When I was a kid we put a few baseball cards in inside of our shoes when we wore a hole through the soles.
