Some guys have all the luck
« on: May 30, 2003, 12:48 AM »
I just talked to my buddy whom I scored all of the loose vintage figs from.  He went to his parents house this weekend, and his mom hooked him up BIG TIME!!!  Well, his mom gave him the 4 Beatle McFarlane figs (1st series), and the 1st series of Simpsons, all on card Near Mint.  No big whoop.  Here's the kicker.  Apparently his cousin had a vintage carded SW collection which he had to end due to a family tragity.  The figs were boxed up and put in the attic.  Well today he showed me all 12 of the 12 backs.  All were carded in NM to VF condition.  His mom says she has 2 or 3 more BOXES of these in her attic.  My buddy didn't even collect toys until 2 months ago!!! After this, I've decided to put my parents in a home for throwing out all of my toys. >:(
