    Ever dig through old boxes?

    Well now I have. I've had taped up boxes that have moved with me through 3 houses, 3 relationships including one fiance and one marriage.

    Highlights include the Linda Blair auto, AL Kaline jersey and Joe Nathan triple patch! I completely forgot just how much Spectrum I opened in 2007. I ate it up!

    I was ecstatic going through all these cards and finding old gems!

    And last weekend I went through my old notebooks and found the first card I ever traded for. A 1992 Donruss Elite Series Kirby Puckett /10,000!

    I was going through an old box of basketball cards that I had bought in 2009-10. I mainly collect baseball and for about a year I bought some misc blaster boxes of basketball. Opened the packs and put them in a box and put them on a shelf in the basement. Decided to start cleaning stuff up and came across the box and started going through it to see what was in there. Ended up finding 4 Steph Curry rookies. Sent them to PSA and got 1-9 and 3-10's! Not bad for not even knowing they were in there!

    Nice! I doubt I have any treasures such as those but it still had me excited!

    Thank you very much, very kind of you.
    I actually already have two copies of that card!
    Great stuff in that find, besides the Kearns of course

    I buy individual cards and forget I have them. A few times in the last couple of months I have re-purchased stuff I forgot I had. Really need to cut back!

    Worst is when you have an extensive checklist of what you need, buy a card on January 14th, and then buy the exact same card on February 11th for $2 cheaper. Oh well, it's a Shaun Alexander RC Auto, so it could be worse.

    I opened a box of bowman sterling in 2009. Put the cards in pages and didn't look at them until 6 yrs and two moves later. Had a trout auto that graded 9.5.
