Anyone want to see what 48,000 base cards looks like?
Ive been collecting since I was 10 years old ( 27 now ), and still had all my base cards in big, space consuming, 3,200 count boxes.
I was able to work out a deal with a local guy here where he would take all my base boxes, but slowly. 3 by 3, I would take these to the monthly shows in exchange for cards or cash. Finally, a few shows ago he asked me how many more I had, and told me I could bring them all!
In total, I had 15 3,200 count boxes. 10 of the boxes were post lockout, 5 being pre lockout.
Unfortunately, I dont have a pic of all the 3200s piled up ..... but I do have to show what I got out of them !
Im very happy with what I was able to turn my base cards in to ..... and my girlfriend is even more happy with all the extra closet space she inherited ( probably the MOJO of all my pickups =P?! )
Here's what I was able to land with my 48,000 base cards!
- 11/12 Elite Auto Rookie Connolly SP ( 1,500 base cards )
- 07/08 Sweet Shot Endorsed Equipment Pad Auto Theodore /15 ( 3,000 base cards )
- 07/08 Sweet Shot Ice Signings Brodeur /100 ( 3,000 base cards )
- 07/08 Sweet Shot Ice Signings Crosby /100 ( 7,000 base cards )
- 08/09 Between The Pipes Game Used Emblem Roy SP /9 ( 10,000 base cards )
- 07/08 SP Authentic Future Watch Auto Rookie Toews /999 ( 8,000 base cards )
- 10/11 SP Authentic Prestigious Pairings Stamkos / Ovechkin /50 ( 8,000 base cards ) *** already sent back out the door ***
- 05/06 Trilogy Rookie Crosby /999 ( 7,500 base cards )
Only the Roy is available! But not really looking for 10K base cards for it =P
Thanks all for the look!

Holy cow! I'd take deals like that for my base any day! I wonder what he was planning on doing with all of that base...
ALWAYS LOOKING FOR Stephen Harper, Frazer McLaren, Nicklas Backstrom, and any Lacrosse cards!

Hahahaaaaa, as someone who once bought a 4 by 4 by 5-skid of mostly base cards, I know exactly where you're coming from!!
You have a very nice little collection now :)

I would imagine he is a seller on sportlots or something along those lines. If he sold all those 7,000 base cards for the lowest possible listing price at .18 cents each, he would make $1260.
Still, some good trades! I wish I had found someone to take base cards off my hands before I dropped off about 10,000 base cards at goodwill before Christmas.
