Yard Sale

Last Saturday I went to a few yard sales, hoping to pick up some binders, and I did. But, that wasn't all I found. I grabbed 1 binder here and there, D-ring .25- .50 each. I wound up with about 10 for the day. Around 1:30 I stumbled on to one sale that didn't really look like it held much promise. I got out and it took all of 2 minutes to peruse the 3 tables of nothing that I wanted. I had started a conversation with the people while I was looking, nice people. I seen a horrible pile of beat up magazines out of the corner of my eye. I looked closer, and seen that one of them was an old Beckett Baseball, and I said to the man "I wish there were some baseball cards". He quickly replied, I've got a ton of them stored in the utility closet. I said to him that I would gladly wait. He hesitated and said it would take forever to get to them. I coaxed him into getting 2 boxes out of there. One was filled with non sport trading cards mainly marvel super heroes stuff, I got them for my buddy Bob. the other box, threw me for a loop. It was nothing but Donruss Diamond Kings. Complete Sets with puzzles too. 1982 through 1995 and about 3/4 of the 1996 set. I was very happy to come home with these, especially the BIG surprise. We did exchange phone numbers so that I came come back and go through the rest.

I did pick up a Javy Lopez IP or TTM card for a buck.

Oh yeah, what was the BIG surprise.

Do you know what comes inside these envelopes?

Super DKs, yeah baby! I got almost the complete set of the 1994s.

I did get one binder from this same yard sale, but it came full of cards, mostly NASCAR, but did have these in the very back.

This is the back side of what these cards look like, and they could have easily fit into to the Wacky Wednesday files.

I tried to choose the most appropriate cards to scan.

The first two upper left cards are inserts. I have no idea what do with these cards, there are 50 ish of them.


  1. I've never seen the Super DK's. Nice

  2. Lol... sexy robots? I can finally say I've seen it all. Congratulations on the great DK find.

  3. Nice find on the Diamond Kings. You can send me your sexy robots & whatnot. I'm starting to collect old fantasy art sets like that from back in the day. I'll send you some Barves in return.
