One of the Craigslist transactions I referred to in my recent post came through, and I picked up about 500 cards from a guy on the Upper West side on Friday, costing nothing more than the Metrocard to go there and back. They were all loose inside a flimsy plastic bag that was not going to hold them for long, and there was a lot of junk wax, so I sat on a bench on Broadway and 93rd street pulling out the cards I knew I didn't need (i.e., cards from sets I knew I had finished). When I was done I still had about 150 cards I knew I might need. Hopefully someone found the cards I left on the bench and are having a good time with them.
Here are some highlights of the cards I hung onto.
There were a bunch of 1995 Ultras, and mixed in was this great Gold Medallion parallel.
