    These are great! Just stumbled across it and read all of them. I decided to go on the local Craiglist myself and see what was on there – this was the very first post:

    Here comes Mr. Meatloaf!!!

  5. Sloopster says:

    the worst part is that he copy/pasted the description of the card from ebay item #310138681072, so he knows the card isnt worth more than 3 bucks

  6. Big D says:

    One of the funniest things I’ve seen in a long time. I just spent two hours (at work) off and on, reading these posts. They’re priceless, unlike the bad wax they were pushing. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Frank says:

    Hey I thought it would be cool to actually post my first listing on craigslist. I used the Oklahoman craigslist and posted under collectibles stating that I was from Oklahoma City . 50,000 cards for $50! I will gladly sell these cards to someone, better yet give them to a kid! But I bet I will get flagged from what I said, I might have pissed some OF these Fugazi’s off, the scammers trying to sell their personal collections of these worthless cards, along with Beanie Babies , and over-produced common hot-wheels and all the other Goodwill and Flea-market crapola. The creator of this blog is amazing and really needs to consider publishing a Sports card collectibles in your corner magazine, for the Beginning collector! I would love to hear from you via e-mails .I have left you my E-mail Thanks!

  8. Frank says:

    I have 50,000 cards all junk era cards baseball and tons of junk hoops basketball cards! I have 50, 1,000 count boxes filled with these cards! Just 1.00 a box for 1,000 cards! Most people on here are very dilusional in trying to scam people and trying to get obsurd amounts of money off these virtually worthless cards! I am offering these cards at a low price of $50 bucks for 50,000 cards! That would actually cover the costs of me buying the 1,000 count boxes , which was foolish on my part 😦 but anyways ! Even if you wanted these cards to actually burn for a camp fire or target shooting , It’s a great deal! This actually is a real offer here ,believe it or not! Message away! Thanks HERE IT IS!!!!!

    Late to the game, as usual…

    I just found these entries. Hysterical! Take a whirl through the Kansas City craigslist ads sometime. The same guys have been listing the same collections each month for the last five years.

  11. Frank says:

    Geez, 300 listings for sports cards in the Kansas City Craigslist ad??? Man some of those people are living in 1991!!!!

    Over 500,000 sports cards 90% baseball lots of stars – $1500 (Atlanta)

    I am selling 500,000 sports cards. All the cards in the pictures have barely been touched. 90% of the cards are baseball cards and the other 10% are basketball cards from what I can tell. The years seem to be from the early 80’s to the late 90’s. I only searched through a couple boxes and found multiple star cards and rookies. First $1500 cash takes them away!

    • Spacer457 says:

      This is not by me just to let you know. The pictures he shows i wouldn’t pay that much for the cardboard boxes they come in. At least show us what good cards are in it he replied back stating 90% were stars.

  16. JW says:

    OK, so I know this is not Craigslist, but you have to check this out on eBay. Seller says it is a 1976 Yount card (but shows a 1975), and that is autographed. Further goes on a say that ‘I got this autographed during BP in 1978.’ Well, what he is showing is the 1975 Topps card with preprinted sig that all of them have. Liar!

    Found these cards while cleaning out my room at my parents’ house. If I was ambitious, I would send them away to be graded & make some money; but I just don’t have the time or energy. Anyway, some nice cards are waiting for a new home. Of course, you are welcome to and I would encourage you to check out the condition of the cards before buying. I’m not interested in selling just one or a few – it’s either all 17 or nothing. Cash is the only accepted method of payment unless you have any of the following items that you’d like to trade: Zildjian Z3 cymbals, Mesa Boogie 2X12 Rectifier cabinet, or Mesa Boogie Heartbreaker head.

    Thanks for looking.

    I sent him a E-mail and this is what I got back.

    Well Tom, I am sorry for insulting your intelligence. And here I thought they were nice cards. LoL Anyway, if you’re looking for conversation, might I suggest the male personals. I, sir, am not gay and am not interested in your advances. I will be placing your email on spam, so don’t even bother responding because I won’t get it.

    Have a good day, dickhead.

    ** More Info:

    How do you come up with $500.00 for those cards. Must have been a typo, you meant $50.00 right? I think the is still alitte high. Your best card is the ripken rc and you can buy those on e-bay for under $20.00. What would your best price be?

    Here’s a good one to work with:

    It’s nice and topical with the new TRON movie that came out on Friday, and here’s a guy trying to find a timely sucker to the tune of at least 10x reasonable value. Wholly unopened boxes of these can be had for under $20 on eBay, and that’s in actual normal packs and boxes, not the Donruss generic packs that they jammed overstock cards into during the mid-1980s (which is what this guy seems to have). He estimates a dollar for each card, when it’s more like a nickel per is pretty good, by any reasonable estimation.

    I noticed you don’t really do any for football but I think this ebay one would be good to do Seeing how the card is clearly not worth 8,000 dollars.

    I just found the best Craigslist idiot I have ever seen….so many mistakes….bad description….20 spelling mistakes….no pictures…..outrageous price…..everything. Here’s the link:

    Either way its only $1,000!!

  41. obviously like your web site however you have to test the spelling on several of your posts. Several of them are rife with spelling problems and I to find it very bothersome to tell the reality nevertheless I’ll surely come again again.

    I think the link below qualifies for CL Idiot? Check it out

    • chemgod says:

      Clearly it’s not worth $50,000 but you get A LOT of cards. I would say $10,000 isn’t out of the question. Even if it is garbage sets, there are a lot of them. Plus some of the starting lineup figures are worth $20 – $30. Wholesale it’s worth 4-6K, pieced out you could get 10K. Plus, he put a lot of time into listing what he has. The idea behind a craigslist idiot is that it’s like 2 sentences and blurry pictures on top of crappy cards.

  44. Evelyn says:

    I’ve got an unopened box of Donruss 1991 Collectors set (792 cards) I’d gladly take $10 for..also a box of 1991 Score collectors set (900 cards, 72 magic motion trivia cards) $10. Are you interested???

  45. Bill says:

    you gotta email this bozo, has a box of 86/87 baseball cards
    thinks he has $600 worth of cards, because after all like he says at .25 a card
    and about 3000 cards thats what it adds up to.. lol

  46. Here’s another good one – I’d love to know if this guy’s had a response.
