    Box of CCG trading cards:
    Jedi Knights (Lots)
    Young Jedi (Lots)
    ST Voyager
    Looney Tunes

    & More

    Don't know....
    But these didn't belong to a kid, they belonged to a collector who apparently lost interest (or died).... And the toys ended up at acution, which is where the seller got them with the intention of putting them on Ebay... He just never got around to it, and they ended up in the yard sale.

    Ebay:
    That's a sweet find. I've visited flea markets and garage sales on a number of occasions, and found lots of TFs - but never a single one that was in a condition worth purchasing. I guess if you do it enough, you'll occasionally find those gems. Cool stuff!

    And 2 Star Wars mini snow globes... from 2005 for $4

    WTF?

    I've been to A$$loads of yard sales over the years, and I live near a small town that may just be the yard sale capitol of the midwest...and I have never found shit for TFs! Come clean dude, you're just taking pics of your ebay wins, right??

    Kidding...nice snags.

    Actually, I thought he did, just at Botcons or something.

    And all I ever have to say about this guy is: "Hail to the king (of the bargain hunt), baby!" I thought I found some great deals, but damn, his take the proverbial cake!

    Yep, once a year I set up with a few friends at Botcon. Although the only TFs that may be sold out of those is the Slag - Or more likely a loose Slag that this one replaces. I don't think I had any of those on the card already.

    Although if someone is into any of the CCGs or ST figures, I might consider selling some of them.
