Absolutely nuts.

I'd love to just sort and organize them.

I hope they'd release a comprehensive list of what was in the find.

That would be a blast to pull each card one by one to discover what else that hoard had to offer.

Just shows you, a ton of material is still out waiting to be unearthed. And how common most of the cards in the T206 set are.

Would love to see the breakdown of everything once it's all gone through and sorted out. Is this something they would go ahead and publish for people in the future?

Along with the T206s, I'm sure there are plenty other goodies in here:

"But that wasnt all. There were 19th century Old Judge cards. T202s and T205s. Several hundred 1933 Goudeys including Babe Ruths and Lou Gehrigs, hundreds of 1934-36 Diamond Stars and other tobacco issues from more than a century ago."

Good job keeping the hyper up. Pretty sure they have gone thru every single card and know there weren't any Big 4 and super rare backs in those piles.

I'm happy for the family of the original collector that they'll see some financial benefit on these and get paid fairly going through a major auction. Better that, then the get taken advantage of.

I have dreams sometimes of finding such a horde...and always wake up so so so disappointed it wasn't real .

Shows you how rare those cards are. No hype needed, astonishing find as it is, one you and I would be soiling our drawers to run across.

Yes, common in the sense that so many were produced and so many are still around. With unlimited resources, you'd have no problem completing the 524 set in a few months. On the other hand, this is one of the great finds ever.

Early winter, 1972, I found 1100 T205s and T206s from a farmer outside of Max, ND. He got them as a kid in 1909-1912 NYC, so they have had only two owners in 110 years. My find pales in comparison to this one.

Incredible pictures. Reminds me of all the double row graded boxes that I have with 4 rows of raw T59's. Looks just like those pictures. I probably have around 12 thousand of them. I wish they were T206's, but if someone walked in some place with my T206 hoard, They'd be amazed by the quantity and the lack of Piedmont and common Sweet Caporal backs. I'm working on my website, so everyone can see the cards I have, and I would probably be looking to upgrade some cards.
