Oh are those the ones in like regular packs then inside like a cardboard case with either baseball or basketball or football on it. I saw some of those the other day. No hockey so I didn't bother. I'd rather get name brand stuff if I'm getting anything old. Not sure if those random packs can be trusted? wonder if anything is faked?
I see they do sell hockey on the website, so I'd wonder if maybe any other Dollar Trees might have hockey. Seems to be very unpopular, and thats odd for the NE USA.

went and got a pack of them today, then went back and got 4 more packs. About 30 cards in the pack and a very wide variety, from 1980 Topps to 2007 Fleer, all brands. Got about 20 2002 Topps cards total, sweet. It's not all from the overproduction era. You'll never complete a set buying them this way but for a buck and a some fun, pretty good deal.

As far as trusting them and are they OK I'd say yeah probably. They are not dealing with high end stuff. They saw a niche for all those people dumping low end base and cheap overproduced cases and they are trying to take advantage of it. You may find a nice card or two if you buy the pack lots as I doubt they would take the time to search them (although they may have been searched before they got them) I suppose its a fun way to get a bit of excitement for a cheap price if you consider getting a 2002 Brett Favre Topps base exciting. I bought a few packs a while back and got exactly what I expected to get for a buck. Pretty much like gps said
On a side note anyone have any idea how many cards it would take to make up 50 pounds if we are talking base.Steve Schindler
Collect what you want to collect. Collect players and cards that you like. Collect what you can afford. Collect for you, not to try to impress someone else. If you do this you will much more likely to enjoy the hobby and stay with it.

Well, I recently splurged and got a 10 pound box and a 100 count box of 1970-1979 cards. It's featured on their website at www.cardsone.com
First the bad. The 1970-1979 lot contained ZERO topps Cards from 1970-1976. Came in a 100 card count plastic case. It contained the following
1977 Topps - 3
1978 Topps -19
1979 Topps - 23 (many off centered to boot)
1976 TCMA - 54 (I never heard of TCMA before getting this)
Grade F - DO NOT BUY THIS 1970-1979 DEAL, $9.99 PLUS SHIPPING. AVOID AVOID, NO EXCUSE FOR NOT HAVING A SINGLE CARD before 1977 from Topps when advertising this.
The ten pound lot. Approx 3,000 cards, and nearly all of it from the overproduction error. Cost $39 + $10 shipping. And although I wasn't expecting any hits, any card of any value over a common was removed from the set. About 400 of the lot were doubles. Came in typical 3,200 count cardboard box. A wide variety of cards from 1986-1993, again expected.
Grade - D , just not worth it for the price, you'll never complete a set, especially with the lack of any stars. Makes me really miss my local shop (out of business) that used to sell bricks for $5.
The one plus side is shipping was rather quick, 4 days from order to delivery. Came well packed inside a box that contained the plastic container and the 3200 count box. They seem to have some complete sets really cheap but after this purchase, i think I'll just stick to amazon or Dean's cards.

I checked out their website. Their comic book selection looks pretty good. I'm not sure about buying the 5000 count box of cards unless you are a set builder or plan on doing a whole lot of ttm. I would imagine most of the stuff that they would have would be the same things sitting around collecting dust in my common box. Mabey if I split the cost up with other people I would consider.
