What Are My Sports Cards Worth?
"How much is this card worth" is a question that has been around almost as long as cards themselves. The reality is that many people have some cards around the house and a large percentage are worth very little.
As someone attempting to sell an item, you want to go into a potential sale with full confidence that you understand what you have.
Your first step is determining if what you own carries any notable value. eBay is a great resource for obtaining a general idea of the value range. Outside of the truly rare cards, anything you likely possess is bought and/or sold on eBay quite often, so you can see exactly what similar cards have sold for in the recent weeks. Player names, card numbers and the year printed on the back of the card are all useful bits of information to help you identify the exact set in question.
What Baseball Cards Do We Buy?
Bear in mind that companies won't automatically buy just anything. Buying and selling baseball cards is their livelihood, so if they don't think they can turn a profit from purchasing your collection, they are unlikely to buy it from you.
In most instances, vintage cards are king. That generally pertains to cards issued in the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s. The condition of the card is also a crucial detail as many believe their cards are much closer to mint than is actually the case.
If your collection mainly consists of late-1980s and early-to-mid 1990s baseball cards, then value is minimal with only a few exceptions. This is a result of the gross overproduction of sports cards during the era. If you are lucky enough to find someone to purchase these kinds of cards, the payout would hardly even warrant the gas or shipping expenses incurred in completing the transaction. You are much better off donating the cards to charity. In addition to helping a good cause, in many cases, your donation can be used as a tax write-off come April.
