    Today i was at home where a friend of mine was over to help me remove a old shed
    He had his bob cat and we broke up the small slab underneath it..

    To my suprise i found a old plastic icecream container style box buried..

    In it i found

    10, 1977 large football cards (what look to be old brisbane league type cards).
    7, 1977 old Dysneyland post cards ( blank never written on) snow white, goofy ect

    And finally

    Hundreds of 1966 Batman cards, Complete sets(about 10 different series sets) and multible of all sets

    there are seriously like nearly 300 cards..

    Just what a random thing,,,

    They might be worth something or originally were precious to someone..... I wonder why they were buried?
    I once ripped up some carpet in an old house and found very old newspapers used as underlining. Made for some fascinating reading.

    Sounds like some kid's private treasure stash. Sweet find! Back in the day I found 5c in a sealed tobacco packet. That's about the most random thing I can recall at the moment...

    What a cool find! There must be loads more of treasure buried in backyards all over the country.

    I was stripping the floor in a 100 year old house and discovered a cellar with furniture and bottles of port. We had owned the place for 2 years and never knew it was there. The newspapers under the lino were late 1940s. It had been closed since then.

    The port was beeyoootiful!!

    i bet,
    I was able to get some 10 year aged brown brothers port,
    it was 10 years aged when it was bottled in 1980.
    i drank it earlier in this year, so it would be 41 years old,,,

    It was the most amazing drink i had ever had

    i found an old bronze broken medal and a rising star pin under one of our old houses along with some filthy pennys. the old lady was on her own for a few years but her hubby went to war so i guess they were heirlooms that got dropped in the dirt

    I'm a sucker for old literature, so I was rather stoked on finding it. It's a little beaten up, may get it restored down the track. Pity the whole set wasn't there.

    A keeper for sure.
