Yard Sale Find: # 14

We recently posted about a Yard Sale we went to and picked up a bunch of sports cards at (mostly baseball). We thought it would be fun to take you on the journey with us to discover what is inside of every box, every single we got picking out the best ones along the way to show. We hope you enjoy the trip and comments are always welcomed.

Looks like Raghib Ismail had some fun back in the day along with Brien Taylor (I know you guys who loaded up on his rookies are shuttering with that name) and Russell Maryland.


A ton of these were found. Most average a value of $1. Jeff Bagwell comes in as most valuable at $3.



These were interesting....


A card set I didn't know about or have any I do. I was at one point a HUGE Clemens fan..then came the steroid accusations....



Since I found these in the middle of the box, thought I would post them about in the middle. Not much in terms of big names here, but I like old school football. Years range in the 70's.

A lot of Baseball Heroes and Classic Baseball finds.

My man! KGJR! 

I thought this card was pretty cool. I know Pro Cards aren't usually worth diddly,  But I like finding cards of players at the beginning of their careers.

I don't know who this person was trying to sell this card to but wow. Big price difference now.

I like older Marvel card finds.

Complete set!

You just gotta love what Upper Deck brought to baseball cards. Especially the photography. One thing I have found out from this Yard Sale find is how popular Upper Deck baseball cards were for this person. And I can't argue with that. I used to collect mainly them as well. If only we can go back in time and change the licensing agreements.

These are not at all worth $4.50 each. Prices for these must have been worth more back then. You are lucky to get $4.50 for all of them. However, I must note, I have always been a fan of Gwynns. He never got much spotlight for being the incredible hitter he was. Playing in San Diego probably didn't help.

I really like this card. And the full set is here as well. Frank Thomas was one of the greats.

I wish companies, especially Upper Deck, would dig back into holograms.They are just fun.

Complete sets of each. From what I read about these, cause I hadn't heard of them, they were produced in the 80's and 90's and had action shots, full bleed color photos but no true licensing by a real company. I guess they somewhat flooded the market back then. They also have blank backs.

Interesting to see this guy in a Soccer set.

Anyone want a Canseco base for $10? Or how about a Deion Sanders for $10? Both have a BV of $1


Overall, not bad finds here. Some interesting ones buried within. Such as the football cards and Marvel ones. I like the small insert sets and the Frank Thomas set is probably my favorite of the group. And of course the Griffey Jr's and 90's inserts are nice additions as well.

It did crack me up to see the prices this person must have tried to sell or maybe they bought them for the at one point. Cause now-a-days, you probably can't even get a 10th of that value.

Let us know what you think on this find.


  1. Awesome find!!! I just found your blog and was so impressed with the yard sale haul... I had to go through every yard sale post to find the first one... quite an impressive lot of cards and one heck of a deal! of course now I have another blog to read!!!

    1. Thanks! Was quite shocked by what we found. And it's not even over with yet. Still tons more to show!

      And welcome to the blog!

  2. I forgot about the Ryan in the tux stadium club card. I always liked that one. I don't think that I have it in my pc but would like to have it there one day. It is just one sharp card.
