This isn't as amazing finding a Dark Emperor at a flea market, or getting a 153P for $1 at an antique store, but I wanted to share a pretty cool Craigslist find.

I contacted the person who listed it and arranged to get the figures. It ended up being 205 M.U.S.C.L.E.s plus 3 bootlegs for $5. Of those, there were 37 flesh, 131 class C, 34 class B and 1 class A. (41P)
The woman selling them ran an 'art camp' for kids and said that they had been played with for years. With a history like that, I was surprised at the overall condition. There are no stains, almost no sun damage, no markers on the feet and the orange and green figures are all still pretty bright.
The fact that the woman didn't know what they were coupled with the condition, the percentage of uncommon figs and the presence of non-M.U.S.C.L.E. sculpt boots makes me wonder who originally owned them and how they ended up at a day camp.
