Out of the two hundred or so cards, about half were dinged or damaged. The cards ranged from 1981 - 2011 and consist of mostly star and semi-star players. Nothing of great value, but some fun cards to go through. Here's a look at 5 of my favorites.
This is probably my favorite card from the batch. I had never seen one before that I can recall. It's a 1999 Pacific Crown Collection Tape Measure insert card of Nomar Garciaparra. This thing is fantastic. The lines at the top are all die cut as well as the circles around the Boston Red Sox logo. It's not numbered, but baseballcardpedia.com tells me that these were issued at a rate of 1:73 packs. The card has some issues with the foil, but it's still great and I'll be on the look out for more from this set if I can find them cheap. That might prove difficult as the only Griffey on comc.com right now is listed for $49.25.
Next up is a 2009 Allen & Ginter card featuring Old Faithful. I didn't realize that this cards existed until now. To me it's cool because last summer my family and I went on an epic road trip and we visited Yellowstone and Old Faithful. They must have used an old photo for the card because there aren't trees that close to the geyser at present.
I thought I was familiar with the 1989 Fleer set pretty well, but I wasn't familiar with this 1989 Fleer Mike Schmidt tribute card. Turns out it's because it's from the Update set.
The small collection contained a few sleeved cards of Carl Yastrzemski and Robin Yount. Since they were sleeved, they were all in pretty good shape.
Here's a 1982 Fleer Yastrzemski containing a great shot of Yaz swinging the bat and admiring his own blast.
Here's a 1981 Topps card of Robin Yount with an up close head shot of a Hall of Famer in his prime waiting for his turn for batting practice.
