Here's another sad story of a misfit toy that didn't find a new owner. I can't imagine just why. These basketball card collector's magazines from the early 1990's should have been a must have for any collection. They were found, forlorn, in the book pile at the church rummage in Davenport on "dollar-a-bag" day. These were kept in good condition for all the years, and I thought they were beautiful, as you'll see after the break.
When moving time came, I couldn't justify keeping all the hard copies, so I scanned all the good images in the mags and put them up for sale. Twice, I got an email of interest (from the same person) and twice I was stood up after setting up a pickup time. That was in my early days of Craigslist-ing and still trusting of interweb humans in general. After these two stand-ups, I decided to keep the magazines with my comic books, space be darned! Luckily, I still had the images, and now I share them with you.
Comment below if you would have coughed up 5 bucks for a collection like this... not that I'm selling them, though.
