Its the dream isn't it? You come across a box of old priceless cards in an attic or inside a wall. All collectors play that scenario in their heads and dream of the day it happens. It happened to me!
I recently moved (one reason for no posts lately) to house across town and had to install all new appliances. When I removed the dishwasher I found a small box of cards behind it. It obviously has damaged and even if it had been mint these cards would be worthless but for a moment I was crazy excited. Then I examined the find to see it was only two basketball cards and two football cards stuck together in an NHL card box. It was fun for the moment. Found with the cards is what I am hoping is not a suicide note.
