Box was filled w 67-73 topps & while the 73s were beat up, many of the other years were nice.
Half way through, it dawned on me not a single star was in the entire box. Someone chery picked the entire box and left the junk.
All commons. I offered a fair price but he thought he had a gold mine I guess and didn't take it.

After I bought his collection, the collecting bug hit me and I bought tons of new cards. Now I'm thinking (again) of trying to get my arms around just what I have and what to keep. I've been putting any card with a beckett high value over $2.40 in sleeves and plastic and anything over $50 in hard cases. I've seen new cards go up and down in value based on the star and I've read the articles on how once a star is out of the sport, his card prices tend to settle. My question is should I just toss all the commons and keep the stars? Is it worth the headache to try and even sell hundreds if not thousands of commons in bluk?
