Yard Sale Find # 19 FINAL BOX FINALE PT 2

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.

We apologize as a picture of the white box wasn't taken before we dug in. This is the second side of the box.

I remember busting so many packs of Upper Deck baseball 1997 hoping to land one of these. Now I spend one little amount at a Yard Sale and it's mine. What are the odds...just glad I have one now.


Dual sided insert card found only in Pinnacle Inside (yep, the cards in the can), you can turn the year dial on the side of the card to view stats of every year.

Bowman "fillers" as I like to call them. Sweepstake entry cards is what they truly are.


So young...

Really liked the design on these.

Always forgot he started as a really bad pitcher in MLB

Rookies of Ray Allen and Marcus Camby

Alfonso Soriano rookie card


I totally dig what Topps did here for design.

Unopened pack....





Loved this parallel pile. Despite buying tons of Pinnacle Inside, yup once again cards in a can, I filled a can set but never pulled any of the cool parallels like the Diamond Edition.




Overall, second side was as good as the first.. Ton's of inserts again. Some prospect and rookie cards in there as well. We also discovered some base cards of star players we didn't take pics of. We tried to narrow it down. We even found some 2008 Topps base cards (roughly two packs worth) which is the newest cards we found in everything as most ranged from 1990-2002. They must have tried to dive back into the hobby or had a pack opening craving. Must not have caught back on again.

Favorite finds of this side of the box, the parallel inserts. The rookie card of Alfonso Soriano. And the Blue Chip Prospect. But over all pretty happy with all of the finds.

One final post to go from this ONE Yard Sale find this summer. What a ride it has been. But with most things, we saved the best for last!

Feel free to comment on this post as well!

Yard Sale Find # 18 FINAL BOX FINALE PT 1

We recently posted about a Yard Sale we went to and picked up a bunch of sports cards at (mostly baseball).

We apologize as a picture of the white box wasn't taken before we dug in. But it was a two sided box just like our previous post. On this post is just one side of the box.

Best Classic cards I have seen..might have to do with the fact they are CHROMED!!


I really wished companies would do these again. Full Motion holograms. Very cool When tipped just right, a the hologram moves. I never knew Denny's handed these out. There were two full sets here.

These are cool. If memory serves me right, they are 80's cards.


You see a Michael Jordan card and you just get excited

Don't know what this is lol



More Ripkens

Set from 1990

Phone cards were a cool addition to products in the late 90's. I was excited to find Dale Earnhardt amongst those we found.


Museum Collections really stand out.

More holograms



Overall, the first side of the box wasn't bad at all. Ton's of inserts again. There were also some base cards of star players we didn't take pics of. We tried to narrow it down.

Favorite finds on this side of the box, the older looking cards, the Ripkens, and especially the Denny's Pinnacle Motion holograms. They are so cool in person.

As always comments are appreciated this post!

Yard Sale Find # 17-Organized Box Side # 2

 More 90's inserts. Most being Juan Gone!


 Rookie card of Adrian Beltre. And one of George Steinbrenner's favorite players..Hideki Irabu..or as he liked to call him.."Fat Toad"

Some of my favorite finds of the box. You can see why just by looking at them.


Clemens...

Some of the prospect cards

Not bad findings in Side # 2. There was a lot more base cards in this side. But still came with a lot of inserts, some prospects and some PC players and teams as well. We only show the best however or this could be a month long post lol.

Let us know your thoughts as always.

Yard Sale Find # 16-Organized Box Side # 1

This box was a ton of fun. That is why we have to break it down to two separate posts. One for each side. I like how this box was so organized going by the last name of the person. Most were correct, some cards were just tossed in where ever. We are doing one side at a time. The first side we did came packing with tons of goodies.



These are very cool. Now if only you could use them for money...there was roughly half a set found.


 Back and front of the cards designed just like a credit card

A good amount of Cal Ripken inserts. Can't argue with those!


 Loved these designs. I remember pulling some from packs. No longer have them. So glad these few popped up.

 Looks like someone had a decent stash of Mike Piazza's. This wasn't even all of them.

 He looks so young. Good Luck Andy on your future endeavors! Glad to have had you as a Yankee!


Paul Konerkos



Shaq...enough said

Just another example of why Upper Deck needs an MLB license. Topps never puts anything this creative out for base cards.

Many fun finds in this box. 90's inserts, a good amount of Cal Ripkens, and the really cool 1995 Studio Gold Series cards that have the credit card appeal.

Let us hear your thoughts on today's Yard Sale Find. Only 4 more posts to go! The finale of the series will rock as we reveal the autographs and memorabilia cards we found. We have officially gone through everything now. So it's all being picture taken and documented right here for you guys. 

Part 2 of this organized box coming up next.
