Question...
« on: Jun 03, 08, 10:48:31 pm CDT »

I cant figure out where to put this so here it goes!


I have a small tote full of Baseball, Football, and Basketball cards and I want to get rid of them. But I want to see if any of them are worth anything. Where would a person go to find that out? I am lost with these!

Go to any reputable bookstore, buy a Becket's price guide and go thru em all one at a time.  Or just take em down to a sports memrobilia store slap em on the desk an say "whadaya gimme for em" and expect to get ripped.  that's bout the only two options I know of.

Everytime I've tried to sell comics or cards to a shop I either get told that they aren't interested or that they will only give me a nickel each no matter what's there.  They're jackholes, the lot of them.

If you have the energy to invest buy the guide like allenlorick suggested and then eBay the lot for what the book says it's worth.

Get me a list together, my ex is really into this, he might be able to tell you what each is worth and if anything help you sell them. Ebay is good for that.

I used to buy/sell/trade cards. When I would ask the local shop guy I used to deal with, his answer on card worth was basically, "Whatever someone wants to pay for them".

As an example, I have cards from a set called "Sports Kings" from 1931 and '34. One of them is a Babe Ruth card, but other cards in the set are from other sports at the time as well. I showed them to the guy to get his opinion and  I got his standard answer. Heh.

He did think it was a pretty cool set though.  ;D
