A Junk Wax Bonanza

No these are not my cards. I completed purging my own "collection" of such worthless crap several years ago. Knowing the success I have had with the legit vintage consignments, my wife offered my assistance to a friend of hers to sort and sell her son's childhood "collection", with any money going to her grandson.

Begrudgingly I went over to her house and loaded up about 30,000 cards of utter junk. I have since asked my wife if anyone offers to take advantage of my services to please let me talk to them first because this is obviously something I don't want to waste my time on, but unfortunately I am now obligated to. I was half tempted to tell her to take themto a Good Will drop-off, take a receipt and write $100 on it for her taxes next year.

Most of this will be dumped at one of the several garage sales we have each summer. The good news from a selling standpoint, is that a lot of the original boxes exist, meaning I can put all the cards in the appropriate box, mark $5 on them and be done with it. The bad news is that the boxes aren't filled with their corresponding cards. Go figure.

So I am really sorry to be putting more of this crap into the market instead of sending it to cardboard heaven but this one's not my call. Pray for me, I'm gonna need it. This sucks :(
