It’s hilarious how for a Hobby that lives and dies by “book value”, guys who are connected so closely to it like “Mr. Mint”, Al Rosen, have the gall to offer a senior citizen and someone who spent his entire life collecting $80,000 dollars for a collection that would have netted close to half a million dollars if sold on eBay and other auction services.
Please check out the entire series of videos to see the vintage cardboard goldmine this collector was sitting on. The last video at the bottom of this post is of the shyster counting out his dirty money to haul away the guy’s entire life. Granted, it would have taken months to sell of the entire collection one by one and maybe they needed money immediately but this is a perfect example of highway robbery.
