Yeah it' a shame he didn't know about us. He would've been a collecting brother to all of us for sure.

I don't want to continue collecting and I'm too afraid of keeping them and either getting destroyed or sitting in a safe/closet forever.

All of his cards are ungraded.... I'm going to post an overview picture of some of the cards. My knowledge isn't that great beyond the online research I have done... These pictures are a very small glimpse of the entire collection. For instance he has over 25 mickey mantles of various years (no rookie) and hundreds of cards in the 40's 50's 60's.... mays, clemente, ted williams, koufax, yas, hank aaron, ect ect ect ect.....

I have no family and I'm a young adult who is lost on what to do with them. Thank you to any knowledge or advice on where I should go from here.... I do have bad individual photos of each card I can upload as well with the front and back more clear, I dont have a scanner but will get one soon....

Again thank you everybody so much....

I'm sorry about your fathers passing. ~ Take care, Mark

Default I took the liberty---

---to enlarge a couple of the scans. What do you think?

I just added my Brown for comparison.

Default I don't get it---

----93 posts in the 1st day and a half and not a peep by ANYONE since I put up some scans yesterday? (Not even the OP).

I'm amazed & perplexed at the same time.

I have found that overall the weekend is a slower period of Net54 traffic than during the week...perhaps people like to check out and post while they are on the job instead of doing what they are paid to do.

By the way, those large scans really do hint at how nice a batch of vintage cards the OP has inherited.

I hate to say it, but I'm skeptical of some of those cards...

I am a little skeptical too.
However, I am watching and waiting for expert comments. Which I can not provide.

I'm guessing there have been many many PMs exchanged. Some folks like to keep it on the down low if they sense there is a good opportunity to be had.

Maybe I'm wrong, but I don't think that's the point that Fred was trying to convey with the large scans.

I'll go ahead and say it. To me, the Brown appears trimmed and the the Young appears to have re-colored corners. The borders on Brown are too thin and no way Young has that much border wear, but barely any wear on the corners.

The enlarged scans of the Plank and Young tell my eyes that they are 100% great, original cards, and that the T206 Brown is original but has incredibly crisp borders and sharp corners (possibility of trimming, but also could just be a top condition card).
