1959 Fleer Three Stooges Wax Pack Who Doesn't Love the Stooges? We at Just Collect certainly love the Three Stooges and we recently purchased a 1959 Fleer Three Stooges Set.  We were happy to buy this set, but unfortunately, the set did not include any of the three extremely scarce and very valuable checklist back variations.  Regardless, this vintage set, like so many of the non-sport cards issued prior to 1980, is near the top of our WANTED list.

Swing For The Fences When evaluating, appraising and buying collections, Just Collect will always swing for the fences.  Sometimes we will hit a home run, sometimes we strike out, but most times we get a hit somewhere in between.  On a recent buying trip to Florida, we looked at quite a few collections -- some we bought, some we didn't and on one specific collection, we were looking at a home run, but ended up with a double.  Actually, we ended up with a lot of "doubles," the doubles and the duplicates from

When you buy and sell sports cards and meet with hundreds of people and speak with thousands, you're bound to hear a wide range of stories about collections.  We've learned how many collections were assembled from buying packs, trading or going to card shows, passed down through the family or found while cleaning and organizing.  Sometimes, there are facets that we still find amazing and these are the nuggets that we really get a kick out of and love sharing with our readers and our customers. A collection that we recently purchased had some
