This weekend I worked a trade with someone through CL and he wanted a Dale Jr Ceramic 1:12 RC Diecast that I had (priced around $350). Well during the trade at his home he tends to show me a bunch of old Finish Line Racing product that he had purchased through a mini storage auction. Turns out that the founder of Finish line Racing cards Aurthur West is from here in Jacksonville and he decided to sell all of his personal collection from his own product line and a lot of other items like Pro Set, Action Diecast, etc... Seeings that all this product has been taking up a lot of space in his home, he begins loading me up with tons of items. I ended up with a dozen or so Dale Jr and Dale Sr Diecast, UNCUT sheets of Jeff Gordon, Ernie Irvan. A case of 1991 and 1992 Pro Set Hobby boxes, 8 different Assets racing card sets (some values at $180 each), 20 Boxes of Nascar cards from the 1988 up to 2004. I have inserts and Die Cuts from Mark martin, Gordon, Johnson, Jr, Sr, etc... Including all the Hologram cards form the 1990's. No auto's or memorabilia cards. Here was the disturbing part to the collection. I remember buying the Hobby boxes in the 90's in hopes of finding the hologram cards of Irvan, Sr. and so forth. Most are serial numbered to 3000 to 6000. Well the reason I never found one in the box is because most of them were never inserted in the boxes. This guy had a few 1000 of each hologram card with serial numbers on them. he gave me a dozen or more of each in our deal. It felt good finally getting some of these cards for my PC but was irritating that they were just hidden in someone mini storage for so long and never put in the boxes. Oh well, if anyone is needing any of these items let me know. I entered tons of the inserts and holograms to my Org. Lots more to come. Pictures will be posted later.
