So I went downstairs to my little home office. It’s the extra bedroom that I have all my crap. My cards, my old comic book collection, action figures, Star Wars busts… All the stuff I used to spend my time on before I got married and had kids. Some may call it a man cave, but I refuse to call it that because I hate that term.
I took some photos of the various stacks and piles of cards. Some of it wasn’t as bad as I thought, some was far worse.
-The stack of Brett Hull rookie cards, not in cases mind you, just chillin out. There are four of them there from a box my son and I busted from the National last year. That is as far as they made it.
-The weird cut glass bottle in the background. I honestly have no idea what that is or where it came from. I didn’t even notice it until I cropped the picture. Maybe my wife put it there.
-The Stack up front is my collection of HOF auto cards. That is a sweet on-card Killabrew on top. In that stack has an ebay value of at least $1000.
-In the middle is a Titus Young auto I got in the mail as a redemption. Two things of note there, he just got out of jail and the card is just in a penny sleeve, I took the toploader it came in to use for a card I sold on ebay because I couldn’t find an empty one anywhere.
-It’s hard to tell but under Titus is an old Crown Royale Mark McGuire 70 HR commemorative card.
-Bottom right is my stack of John Hamilton chrome rookies, I believe my 1/1 letter patch is at the bottom of that pile.
-Back middle is an interesting pile. On the bottom is an oversized Andy Daulton auto card from Panini, on top of that is a DVD collection of Strong Bad Emails from the Homestar Runner website, on top I believe is a 1988 Topps Neil Brotten. A fine pile by anyone’s measure.
-The bottom left corner has a stack of I believe Panini black cards, on top is one of the Rams rookies that I pulled in everything last year. It’s a sweet patch auto. I think its Brian Quick, but it might be the other guy, I forget his name.
This is one of about 10 pictures of such piles I have.
More to come…
