Baseball Cards

Well, I have always been a baseball fan. Although I don't follow it much any more, I still get excited over the World Series. My father was a died in the wool New York Yankees fan. To him there was only one team , The Yankees. When I was a small girl before we ever had TV he would sit by the radio and listen to every game that was broadcast. After we got TV he loved to watch them play.

Today, on my way home from work I stopped at a yard sale. I looked around for a few minutes bought a couple things I did not need and then I saw a metal tin of basebball cards. Thinking I might buy them for my grandson, I asked the price. When the lady said, $1.00 I couldn't get my buck out of my pocket fast enough. I started to pick up the tin and she says, "Here's another box and here's a sack and here's another sack". I couldn't believe it. There must be two or three thousand baseball cards.

Well, I brought them home and started going through them looking for familiar names. Now I don't know anything about baseball cards. They are not on my priority list of collectibles, however, I thought it might be fun to see if they are worth anything. If I sell them I may have enough to buy a new RV. At any rate I know they are worth more than what I paid. I got on the internet looking around at some of them. A Barry Bonds was priced at $10 and a couple of the others were priced at $5. But what they are advertised for and what you can get out off them is two different things. I guess I will study up on the fine art of baseball card trading. It'll give me something to do.

And there you have it, the interesting part of my day today.

Hey what a find! I bet you have some in there worth something. Could be they grow in value unlike some things people collect. Keep me informed of your fortune.
