I recieved an interesting offer today...

Post by browncow75 on Sat Apr 30, 2011 11:32 pm

A fellow collector, and dentist friend (not a board member, as far as I am aware) offered me a group of cards he aquired recently. He mostly collects T206s, and says he doesnt need them. What he told me, is, he has approximately 50+/- "either Sporting News, or Sporting Life" Shocked commons (he wasnt sure at the time since he wasnt home), all with varying degrees of back damage from being in an album. Either way, he wants $6 each. Knowing that they almost certainly wont be any higher than a 1/1.5, should I pull the trigger? Worth the money? I know there are a ton of variables involved since I have yet to see the cards, but what do you guys think? He has a TON of prewar cards in his collection, and seems like it would be a good deal... question

I'm of the, "If you've got it, spend it" crowd, but I'm young and unwed.

Sounds like they'd me M116s sight unseen if your friend collects from the T206 era?

Even with back damage $6 per is a very good price.

I'd say go for it. If nothing else, it may open up the door for future purchases or trades.
