Attention dealers! This incredible hoard of mostly complete and partial sets was compiled by a collector throughout the span of 30 years and has been kept in virtually untouched condition. These sets should yield a significant amount of hall of famers, superstars and rookies for third party grading. Unfortunately, many of the 1980s sets are missing the key rookie cards (1982 sets missing Ripken, 1983 sets missing Sandberg, Gwynn & Boggs, etc...), however it appears that all of the other cards are present. How many PSA 10 Nolan Ryan's, George Brett's, Cal Ripken's, Pete Rose's, etc..., lie within these boxes, untouched for decades?
Approximately 80% of the sets are baseball with the remainder being football, basketball and hockey. There are several of each of the 1981-1986 Topps, Fleer and Donruss sets, including (8) 1984 Topps sets with Don Mattingly, a 1989 UD set with Griffey, a 1984 Donruss set with Mattingly, and 1982 Topps and Donruss sets with Ripken. Almost everything from that era appears to be vending grade and these make up about 20% of the entire collection. The rest are 1987-2005 from various companies, including several premium products from 1995-2005. There are also many oddball sets, traded/update sets, factory sets and small box sets from various years.
