TOTALLY SWEET 25 Cent Finds! 1983 Topps

I went to drop off a few items at one of our second hand stores today.  Most of the store is mostly furniture, clothes, and toys.  Every now and then they get a sports item.  9 times out of 10 the sports item is priced 1000% more than it is worth because the older ladies who do the prices don't know what is worth what in the sports world.  I passed the toy area when I seen something catch my eye, it was a 1983 Topps Cal Ripken with a price tag of 25 cents on it!  That made me go on a frantic search knowing that there was a good chance there had to be more cards in this section just thrown on a shelf.  When it was all said and done, I walked out paying $1.25 for 5 1983 Topps Cards, and here they are! (don't mind the time stamp, I have never set my date code on my camera)

1983 Topps Wade Boggs RC X 2

1983 Topps Ryne Sandberg RC

1983 Topps Cal Ripken X 2

I did find one other card, it was a 1989 Topps Pete Rose marked $9.99.  I guess those old ladies have heard of him!  Of course I passed on that card since I have over one hundred of them.

If anyone is interested in one of the Wade Boggs RC or an 83 Topps Cal Ripken, shoot me an offer at jasonjasonp12@gmail (dot) com, just check out my want list if you need any help, or if you have an auto/relic or two you don't want.  There is no bends in the cards like the photos appear, they are almost in perfect shape (just a tad off center).
