After a decently long hiatus from cards, I decided I was done for good and was going through a process of unloading my cards. Pulled some for family and friends, then turned a huge bunch over to my friend to sell at a swap meet. I should have checked them sooner.

Not sure what exact cards were sold, but my "take" was about $500 and I figured the cards were pretty picked over at that point. I'm so glad I checked before I got rid of the final "glut" of cards. Found these in my boxes (some I knew I had, most I didn't know had such "high" BV's):

Even though I consider myself a big baseball fan, I had gotten so out of touch with cards and the sport to know who the REALLY hot cards were. Hopefully, I can sell some of these in the future.

Sadly, enough, I found out my old Canseco collection is largely valueless. ;)

I can empathize with you to a degree - fortunately haven't sold anything that I didn't know about, but I am forever finding cards that I didn't know that I had, or had completely forgotten about.
