  1. Thanks! I'm done with the purge step (kept sets together), now putting in sleeves and organizing by player. What site do you use to determine an 8 will get $35 a 10 $300, etc.? I see there are a lot of paid services but not sure if it is worth it. I'm hoping to have a stack set aside for future grading and just keep the rest in sleeves and store them.
  2. A few more things. As for ROI and debt, I was lucky and did not have much when I left, but others did, and its individual but Stevens placement in the area is excellent, but I can understand that is a sticking point, especially if he may want to work in other parts of the country. It may be better now, but the Stevens name is most known in the northeast, as are most of their industry connections. One downside of an engineering school is lack of diversity in majors if he decides engineering isn't the right fit. I had friends who decided they wanted to teach, they had to transfer at
  3. So I ventured into my boxes of childhood junk wax type cards and got tens of thousands down to a few thousand I guess. Kept all of the HOF types and anything that seems to be worth at least a few bucks. Looking for recommendations on organization and storage. Does organizing by player make the most sense? Or by within a set? Is it worth penny sleeves for all or would 9 card holders in binders be fine for the less valuable cards? There are probably 25 Mike Mussina cards that seem to mostly be worth like $2 ungraded. I'm trying to find the most efficient way to store everything
  4. Hey Smack, I'm sure I'll miss some things but here we go. For the merit, think I was around the same 30-40%, although it was cheaper then. Everything is negotiable, but I know this is a strange year with applications way up. I think it makes sense to have the conversation, it's a small school and admissions getting to know you and your son is not a bad thing. I did not do the 5 yr co-op, but I wish I did. Almost all of my friends did in a variety of majors. If I remember, you tell them you are interested now, then you apply freshman year, and its mostly just a quick intervie
  5. Thanks, but I literally have some from 88-94 in every brand it seems. I've been looking at a site like this https://www.oldsportscards.com/1992-donruss-baseball-cards/ to see if there is a big name error to look for. I started going down the rabbit hole unfortunately. Two questions: I have some sealed sets from like 99-02 (probably gifts from uncles who didn't realize I didn't care about baseball cards anymore). Should I just keep these sealed? And there is no point to have anything graded at this point either right? A PSA 10 for an early 90s card goes for like $10 but it costs $
  6. So like a bunch of others this thread inspired me to go and see what was in my attic. I have literally 10s of thousands of random early 90s ish cards when I was like 8-12. Mostly baseball. I can list things out if it helps but I’ve been going through the unsorted randoms and just keeping the HOF type players. Is there an easy source for the valued commons? It’s annoying because I seemed to have them sorted by teams when I was a kid so it’ll bounce from topps to fleer to donruss and from 90 to 94 to 88. There’s probably no easy way to do this right?
  7. I loved the distillery over there. It’s pretty easy to find in nj at this point but no idea otherwise. They just released a single pot still which is excellent.
  8. Teeling if you can find it should be in the $40 range. They make some really good stuff IMO that is a little different from the traditional Jameson, Bushmills, and Redbreast flavor profiles.
  9. Anyone thinking about QCOM today down almost 10%? Was looking at selling a put, but premiums aren't great.
  10. Thanks! Yes it would be same industry, similar (hopefully higher) pay. Great to know it won't impact other plans.
  11. What is the current minimum time in a job to be able to get a mortgage easily? I am looking at a new job in maybe 2-3 months, but we would also like to move in the next 12-18 months. I want to make sure taking a new job won't delay the ability our ability to get into a new place.
  12. Stevens grad here. Set me up really well. Happy to help if that is where he wants to go.
  13. Is this a sign on equity grant or yearly? Assuming they have the same/ similar setup as other biotechs- The stock options are going to be your high risk high reward portion, so if she starts and the stock price is $10, and its $15 when they vest and she wants to sell they are worth 5*$3500 so $17,500. If the stock is flat they are worthless. The RSUs are full shares and their value is pretty easy to calculate at least at a present value as they are full shares. Again the shares are $10 so they are worth $17500 now, and more if the stock increases, again depending on vesting schedu
