    Here are a few pictures from last night's trash collection. I walk my dog late on Wednesday nights in my neighborhood to see what people put out. Having been a card collector my whole life; these were easy to spot on someone's pile. This neighbor is moving after 49 years in their house with grown children that don't want anything. The cards pictured are

    1979-80 Topps Hockey and
    1968 Topps Football.

    There were not too many (about 150) and a few of the football cards were a little rough. There were some stars and Hall of Famers in the lot. I was hoping to find the 1979-80 Gretzky rookie in the lot, but no such luck. Still a nice find.

    Whenever, someone asks me if I got anything good then I always replied the same. "They are all good." I tried to teach my son and nephews the same thing about collecting but it doesn't seem to sink in. They only want the rare card or figure or whatever. I appreciate them all.
