I've been buying and selling cards since I was in grade school. I had my life-long stash in a friend's storage shed that he ended up losing that so I started over a few years ago. I knew him for over 25 years so while disappointed I forgave him fairly quickly. Luckily I had the most valuable stuff in my safe at my grandfolks' place. Oh well, always looking to purchase collections big and small depending on the price.
Shooting in pool tournaments, digging thru new collections I purchase when I can find a good one
