oh my what a bummer... so sorry to hear this.
i had an incident once...
passed out on my couch after drinking all night, wake up to dripping on my face.. water is coming from my ceiling.. idiot upstairs floods bath and causes water to get all over my place. run for my card closet and water all over the bottom box just like you.If you are going to flake out mid trade talks and leave me with the sound of crickets, please do not contact me.
Due to a massive postage increase to Canada, I will be very selective on making deals there. There will be exceptions for the Canadian members I have dealt with in the past, I will continue to deal.

Sorry, if I had any Fred Lane cards I would send them to you but I don't. Hopefully you will be able to at least get a few back over time. If I see any I will let you know.

dude that really bites. I always have mine up in the closet or in the shelf. I also learned to keep my good box of stuff in a different color box than my low end. I moved and had no time to get all my stuff out. I grabbed my good box and just left the other. Turned out I grabbed the wrong box. It wasn't worth a lot but I had a massive jacoby Jones collection allong with Mario Williams and Andre Johnson cards. Most were rookies. I didn't know till a couple weeks later when I went to look through some of it. I remember that deep sick feeling in my stomach. I called the landlord and asked her if she kept the box. She told me she had her son clean the place up and told him to keep what he wanted and throw the rest out. Considering I owed her money when left I found that hard to believe. It took me a while before I got back into the hobby. I couldn't get that sick hopeless feeling out of my system for a while. Made me want to give it all up.
I have been there dude. Almost like losing a family member. I'm with the rest on helping you out with your Fred lane collection. Not sure if I will run across any, but if I do I'll pm you for your address.
