Over the past decade, we've bought hundreds upon hundreds of collections and we've had them show up to in a wide variety of storage containers.  Recently, we had a New Jersey man contact us with a small collection of cards that he had and we provided a preliminary evaluation based upon some images of the collection.  While it wasn't life changing money,
