The past few months have been quite a whirlwind. I’ve sold everything. Then I bought a collection of cards, and sold it. Then I bought another collection of comics and …and sold it.
Right now, any and all lingering cards from deals and purchases are gone! If his name isn’t Canseco, I don’t have a card of him right now, aside from a few cards I’m holding for someone until this weekend.
The past few weeks alone, I scored a killer card collection and a killer comic collection that I had written about. Each was a HUGE rush to get, but now they are gone. Sure, I have plenty of other stuff to sell, but as far as cards, there is basically one thing left: my Canseco collection.
I don’t know why I get like this, but if I don’t have any sports stuff to sell, I start selling pictures on my walls…anything! The blaring thing that sticks out right now is the Canseco collection. The collection I have worked on for the better part of 25 years.
There are about 3,000 cards, several autographed 8×10’s, a few autographed baseballs, game used cards, etc. All of which is for sale. I spent an hour or two today taking pictures, doing some videos, etc.
I have put in a small cubby in the hutch of my desk the picture I took with Canseco, the ball he personalized for me, and a few of my favorite cards I have of him. On the wall next to me is the autographed bat my wife got me, and a few autographed 8×10’s of him.
Here are a few pictures of what I’m keeping:
Hopefully this makes me look more like a fan, and less like a serial stalker! (Seriously, y’all – it was getting out of hand. Too much Canseco stuff on my walls.)
Oh, and in case you were wondering, the collection I have up for sale is at $999.33 obo on ebay with $40.40 shipping. Pictures of everything are there as well: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=271294755208&ssPageName=STRK:MESE:IT
