Here in Utah Craigslist isn't very widely used. Facebook might be used as a marketplace; I'm not sure because I don't have a Facebook account. But the most popular choice in these parts when it comes to classifieds is KSL. KSL is just a local news station, but its website has a great classified section. It's fairly common to hear somebody, "I got it on KSL." I have bought and sold many things on KSL, but I have never bought cards there. I've sold cards on KSL, and I've browsed around the offerings, but I always find that most people don't have a clue what cards are worth. For example, there is currently an ad on the site selling a 2015 Bowman Joc Pederson rookie for $30. But a couple of days ago, I got on and found something that caught my eye.
Somebody was selling some boxes of random football cards. I worked out a deal for two of the boxes and
a box of 1991 Fleer. It turns out that it is four packs shy of a full box, but at least I don't have to worry about a pack searcher removing all the hits before passing it on to me with 91 Fleer. I know it gets a bad rap, but I agree with Fuji and I kind of enjoy the yellow borders. It's both distinctive and nostalgic for me. I don't really have any plans for these cards yet because I don't think I'll be building the set. I'm just wanting a fun break. So dust off 1991 Fleer wantlists, because I'll probably find something you need.
I don't know yet what is in these boxes beyond what I can see on the ends. But there are approximately 2200 cards for me to go through. Throw in a fun wax break, and I figure if I can find a couple hundred keepers, then I've got my money's worth. Either way, I usually treat myself to a break on the last day of school, so this will do it for this year.
So, I've been running a giveaway for the past little while. To enter, you needed to write a post about a unique, non-sports card collection and post a link on my post. I'll pick three winners to receive one of the cards above. Since Fuji was the only one to post a link in a comment, he's our #1 winner. Congratulations, Fuji! You get first pick. For the others, I have identified a few people who have written their own post. If you wrote one and I didn't see you and put you on the list, I'm sorry--but you didn't give me a link.
Here are our participants:
And after randomizing the list, we get:
