Yes, I like to know myself, I could use old FOOTBALL cards of the back days when it was football.
If your selling them, hit me up too.

Don't worry, I will make everything available to you guys first. I am only going to be submitting cards 50 or so at a time. I can't handle doing more than that. At some point, I will decide that grading more cards makes little economic sense, and I will offer the raw cards to each of you that has expressed an interest.

The cards that grade high enough, I will be putting in my eBay store, but I will make sure you guys see them first. The cards that grade too low for my eBay store, I will add to my Wallapalooza Sale page.

I will continue to post in this thread stories about the find as well as scans and grading results as long as you are all interested. I will post info about sales in the appropriate Buy/Sell/Trade section. But again, everyone that expressed an interest will be shown the cards in their specialties first.

I do not think this will take more than a couple of months.There are approximately 4,000 cards to go thru but it doesn't take a rocket scientist to figure out that submitting common cards for selling isn't a very sound business plan unless i'm hitting a good percentage of 96's. So I am guessing at this point that maybe 400 cards end up getting graded, most of the major stars and I'll take a stab at some commons to see how it goes.

Thanks for all the comments!

Something strange about this find. The distribution of the cards seems weird. At first I thought it had been cherry picked. But then I see eight pretty nice 1958 Mantles. I don't know what to think.

When I collected cards as a kid, back in 1960, I remember the Yastrzemski rookie card being so common that we literally threw them down the sewer. I remember because we couldn't pronounce his name.

Now we all know it was a double printed card. This find, which is very heavy in 1960 cards, has one Yaz rookie.

Any interesting theories?

That's funny. I too can remember throwing away my fair share of Yaz rookie cards as a kid. For one I hated those awful looking 1960 rookie cards, and two, as you said, no one could pronounce his name. I think most thought he was communist. Keep in mind this was back in the days of fallout shelters and "duck and cover" drills.

I mean really, Williams, Musial, Mantle those were easy, but Yastrzemski. Give me a break. At least as a youngster.

Is it the 58 Mantle or 58 Mantle All Star? I believe the A/S is triple printed.

The A/S Mantle is double print; not card#150

All #150, the orange one. Only one Mantle All Star.

The most cards are 1957, 1958, 1960 and 1961. The least are 1956, 1959 and 1962. That seems strange too.
