    In The Attic, Really?

    So while digging through Xmas lights etc. in the attic for my Mom at the old homestead, I found a very large box which said, "Doubles-Extras 1978-84".
    Would you like to guess what was inside?

    Not just baseball cards...all sorts of Topps/Fleer/Donruss goodness.

    Well yeah, that's the first thought!
    And there were some rookies, just not the obvious ones we'd all think of.
    However.....
    There was one 1979 Topps Ozzie Smith in what seems to be mint condition.
    These cards were mostly commons, but really fantastic shape commons.

    No centering issues? Most Ozzie rookies I have seen are off-centered.

    My first thought, too. Same with Paul Molitor's second year card.

    BSmile, if you're parting with any, I'd be interested in the Red Sox cards.

    Yeah, it's slightly off-center...but not by much.

    Nothing too mind-blowing. I was just really happy with the condition of everything. A lot of really mint checklists...those are always good to have.
    Also, there was a box filled with wrappers. 30-50+ each of 1978, 79, 80, 81, 82 Topps. Plus Fleer/Donruss 81, 82, 83.
    OH..and the most random things were (3) 1950's Topps cards:
    1954 Ed McGhee
    1956 Joe De Maestri
    1956 Don Mueller

    The '54 is in pretty good shape, the 56's are a bit rougher.

    Well that's cool... I've never found anything that cool tucked away, just the usual mid-80's stuff in random boxes...
