Here's a true story. Yesterday my son picked up 20,000 baseball cards for $100. Our mechanic had the cards sitting on a shelf in his office and he wanted the space. He told my son he could have the cards for $100. My son looked at the cards and they were in plastic cases or in binders in notebooks.

My mechanic got them from a tenant who used them to pay rent btw.

We were going through them last night and found multiple cards worth anywhere from $100 to $1800 each. The rest were worth anywhere from 50 cents to $7.50 each with a bunch worth nothing (as you'd expect).
Thanks Tom for that story (and the others too)...!

That's really fantastic for your son. What a windfall!

That's the kind of thing you read about happening to other people... It must be amazing for it to happen to your son!

The thing is, if he wasn't out there looking for deals... He probably wouldn't have come across it. You have to be out there and looking, for these things to happen!

As Benjamin Franklin once said...

"Diligence is the mother of good luck."

Your three stories show that there's still good money to be made out there, if you understand what you're doing!

Best wishes,
