Imagine seeing one million baseball cards all in one location. Now, imagine those can be yours in one fell swoop.
It can be reality in one active eBay auction and there’s an added bonus. What is it? They’ll throw in 100,000 free cards for your team if you choose to take this Cardboard Challenge.
Why’s it a challenge? Well, consider that the haul — and your bonus, don’t forget your bonus — amount to roughly 220 5,000-count boxes. Do you have the space? (It might also be a challenge if it’s heavy on 1989 Score stripped of the stars … but disregard this thought.)
Now, the real question is, do you have the cash? Don’t worry about shipping — it’s free!
(You get to pick it all up and haul it off, so set your GPS for Manville, N.Y.)
