    Sometimes Life kicks you

    Last night my Youngest had the toilet overflow. Well it overflowed into the hallway and my bedroom. We thought we caught it all in time. But when I went to hang up a shirt today I noticed that the floor of my closet was wet. The same closet I keep my football collection in boxes. Well I lost the bottom boxes. Which contained all my base and a few of my Pc collections. In total I lost my collections of
    Randy Fasani 10 years collecting
    Brandon Lafell
    Tony Pike
    Sherrod martin
    Patrick Jeffers
    Tony Fiammetta
    Markelle Martin
    Wesley Walls
    Phillip Tanner
    Josh Norman
    Brandon Hogan
    Hunter Cantwell
    Keoloha Pilares
    and finally the collection that brought tears to my eyes
    Fred Lane who I have collected for 12 years and I know due to his death I will not be able to replace some of the cards of. You will be missed.
    And folks teach your kids how to use a plunger. Don't let this happen to you.

    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.

    I also had an incident once with a pet and a box of my pc stuff now my cards are on a shelf 6 feet high in my
    Closet. I'd recommend the same thing and sorry about the loss always frustrating seeing hard work an years of collecting get damaged

    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.

    Thanks folks I did find a few extras I had in other boxes but man It went from a collection of 139 to a whopping 12. I was able to get most of the Josh Norman stuff back so there was at least that.
