Got some cards at work!

So, nowadays, most people who know me, know that I have a good knowledge of baseball cards and can give them an idea if they are sitting on anything that has any value. Last week was no exception.

A lady I work with asked me if she could bring some cards in for me to look at and if I would let her know if they were worth anything. I said, 'sure'. So, she came in the next day with a little cigar box full of 1983 and 1985 Topps cards. Not bad. I took a look and there were 2 1983 Topps Ryne Sandberg RCs, as well as a couple of other stars. She asked me if they had any value, and I told her she had a couple bucks worth, based on condition, so she sold them to me. Pretty nice. I was glad she got some money out of them, and I was glad to pick up a couple Sandberg RCs.
I also got a Nolan Ryan. Those were the biggest name cards in the box. It would have been sweet had there been a Gwynn RC or two, of course I would have definitely offered her more money. I'm definitely not in the business of screwing anyone when it comes to looking at their cards.
