Yeah my mom threw out my entire baseball card collection when I went to college. I had thousands because my friend's father growing up was VP at Topps. We would go to his house and make up games to win his cards. He didn't care if he lost because he had more coming every day. While the baseball cards were worth money it was the wacky stickers that would have sold for more. I had several first series unopened cards.
I went to a football convention way back in the 70's don't really remember much. MY dad knew the coaches of the NY Giants and somehow he dragged me along.
Minnie is on fire.
