It sounds horrible even to type, but I'm starting to think that maybe I have too much access to cheap cardboard. I know some collectors would kill to come across loaded dime boxes like I do. Mainly because I've had the same thought cross my mind when reading some of the stuff other bloggers come across.
But it's a double edged sword.
And in the grand scheme of things, I came out ahead. I traded two large boxes - probably close to 5,000 cards - of Pirates doubles to a dealer. So ultimately my closet is two full boxes lighter than it was a week and a half ago. Moving out the stuff I didn't need, and bringing in great cards I do want. It seems like a win-win, even if I will be sorting until the end of time.
