About a week and a half ago, on April Fool's Day, now that I checked, I got a mail warning me that a good sized box will be on the way. I was expecting maybe a 300ct box with about 250 random cards for my PC, and some packing peanuts.
How underestimating I was.
It cost over $40.00 to send this.
As I said this morning, I think this included every hockey card within the state of Alabama. I've just started to sort by teams, and I've barely put a dent in it. But I was able to transfer them all into an 800 count box with just a small number of cards on the outside looking in.
So, with the hockey not sorted, I might as well get to the stuff that was easy to sort through - the Bills and Expos content.
To start with the Expos. Nothing much. Just a Starting Line-Up of Moises Alou.
Next up: Bills! Bills! Bills!
And that's the loose non-hockey stuff from the box. There's still a small collection of some junk wax era packs, and, more importantly, enough hockey cards to wallpaper a room.
I'm reloading as I type, and hope to hit ship on something from COMC next week to return fire, if only in quality and not volume.
