With it being the summer kickoff holiday weekend, the yard sales were virtually non-existent, and I almost got skunked. After searching Craigslist for anything that sounded promising, I ended up flying solo as my wife didn’t even bother to get out of bed, just saying “good luck” as I headed out on my Quixotic quest for the goods.
I put on a lot of miles this time out, and somehow managed to find a few items of interest. A Superman and a Batman frame tray puzzle was a pretty good find for me, since I collect those things (shocker!). I was also happy to find those cool Batman and Joker figures. There was a Two-Face figure, but I left him behind, not being a big fan. Anyone know what make/model those “statues’ are?
I thought I would take a shot on a box of 1991 Star Trek trading cards, not really knowing what they were worth. It turns out I paid too much. I spent $20 on the unoponed box and the two cast iron cars. The cars are actually worth a nice chunk of change but the cards are worthless. Anyone want ’em cheap?
I found this small collection of trading cards, which was fun. You can’t go wrong with ALF and Three’s Company.
I love a good deal on an old box camera, and for $3 I was happy to add that Kodak DuaFlex to my shelf of old box cameras, but the coolest thing about it was that it had a roll of undeveloped film inside. Anyone out there know where I can get it developed. Maybe it has the Kennedy assassination on it, or something? More likely, a child’s communion pictures, but still pretty cool.
Clearly the best find for me this weekend was a stack of old comic books for a dollar a piece. If you are selling 10¢ comic books for a buck, there’s a high probability that I will buy them. And if they feature space or western themes, then there is no question. Sold.
Well, it was fairly lackluster for me, but I hope you had better luck in your hunts. Let’s hear it!
