PostSubject: Craigslist Collection Discovered   Craigslist Collection Discovered I_icon_minitimeFri Oct 26, 2012 8:02 pm

I responded to an ad about a vintage Collection on Craigslist. Usually it's POTF2 or other modern stuff that's cleverly worded to make it sound like vintage but after a phone call and some pictures I was astounded to find an incredible collection of MOCs, some cut cards, and even an unopened Rebo Band. The guy knew what he had so I can' t say I got it for a song but still got a decent deal where I can help people fill in collections and make a couple of bucks to go towards mine.

All in all, 56 MOCs / 4 Cut Cards / 1 Baggie / 2 Loose figs in bubbles / Salacious Crumb and hooka and some parts

What I really thought was cool was no doubles. 63 Unique figures

Sorry for the terrible pics but here it goes!
