I don't know if I want to reveal my spot. I don't want anyone else swooping on my deals!!! Haha. It was at shorewood PIAS. I've also found other gems there too. Ce teebird, pre Barry Leo's wasp rimmed bar stamped buzzes, stock stampped CCR's and the list goes on. All for the modest price of 5.99.

There is that too. Casuals maybe that find stuff when playing. If I wasn't on here I wouldn't know what a CE disc was or that it was valuable at all. There are still discs now that I have no idea that have any value or are rare I'm sure.

I would guess more like a guy who played 10-15 years ago in college or high school. I was talking to a friend in a round and a lady he works with was talking with him about disc golf and said he kids are 30-35 now and have 100 or so discs just laying around the house the have not been used in 10 years. So if you think like me you would think 10 years is 2003, the end of the ce era. So pretty much guarantee some CE in there in not horrible shape, if they had putters then they would either have most likely some 8-10x kc aviars, old school magnets so real valuable stuff now that they dont even think about, the kids forgot about the discs. Maybe alot of times mom finds stuff like that around home, takes it into play it again to trade for new gifts for her grandchildren like skates, pads, balls, etc not knowing the value and just thinking the discs are old and feeling good about getting 100-200 bucks for the treasures

And another thing there is nothing really that nice at 5.99 at any of my PIASs. The 4.99/5.99 used idscs at my local places are usually beat to hell and may be good for a dog disc.

This is also true, which is why I try to keep my eyes peeled on CL, garage sales and the thrift shops. Haven't had any luck yet though.
