The Santa Lot

This was a gift from Santa in 2015 - approximately 15,000 varied cards (mostly hockey). So, being a numbers person, I have to keep track of exactly what comes out of the supposed 15,000 card lot. The way I am breaking it down is by sport or non-sport set, by collection if it fits one, if not, whether it is a keeper because I don't have it, and do collect the sport. I will update the contents as I move forward in exploring the contents so that at the end, I can see exactly how it has gone.

I will have plenty of trade material from it as I go, so just send me a message here or through tradingcarddb.com if you are interested in anything.

Should be interesting to go through - at least it will be for me, and hopefully for readers as well.

Update - September 10, 2020

Though I didn't keep track of exactly what happened with every card of The Santa Lot that I got, many were traded away to add cards to my collection I actually needed, but I do know specifically, I have sold off a few cards. Between those cards from it I sold, there was the Stephen Curry Topps Rookie back when I pulled it, and more recently, the 2003-04 SP Authentic pure base set, 2007-08 Topps Basketball base set, and one each of the Kevin Durant Rookie and Variation Rookie cards. 

Between these sales, I recouped $200 which means, not only did I end up ahead financially, I got to keep all the rest of the cards for free. It isn't like finding thousands of dollars worth of cards, but is the best hobby related transaction I've had.
