Nice story. My father-in-law tells me of the cans of baseball cards he had when he was a child in southern Indiana. He swears that they're still in the attic of the house where he grew up.
Sounds like the ...dream of every comic collector... or the stereotypical collector fairy tale. I'm not saying it is all made up but it does sound like the typical hobby legend of a long forgotten stash of some of the hobby's most sought after collectables unearthed "from grandma's attic". The baseball card equivalent would be finding a bunch of T206 cards including the Honus Wagner, both 1951 and 52 Mantle Bowmans, plus a few 1933 Goudey Ruth's just to sweeten the already super-sweet pot all in a dusty photo album or shoebox.
Thanks for sharing... that was a great story... the stuff dreams are made of.
I had an aunt give me a stack of comics for my birthday one year that she had saved from my grandparents house. Early Incredible Hulks, Journey into Mystery, Ironman and some great old Dell's. And while none of them were in terribly great shape they became the pride of my collection growing up. Nice story too. If you haven't checked out comicbookrealm.com you should give it a look it's a great website too.
