Huge Baseball Card Lot

I am siting on an 6,000 - 8,000 baseball card cllection.  Any ideas on how to start valuing them?

Monique: Great question. I'm not a valuation expert, but the answer will depend on many variables, especially the years when the cards were made. Ideally, you could sift through them and identify any gems and higher-value cards. If the cards were made after the early '70s, I believe a conservative wholesale estimate for the 8,000-card lot is $80-$400, or $0.01-$0.05 per "common card" in a bulk buy. You could try to extract multiples more out of the lot if the cards are older, you identify the gems or you try to sell them via a retail channel. -Chris

Thanks for the tip. I have sifted through some of them. We do have some good
rookie cards. I tried going to a baseball card store here but they dont buy cards
anymore:( I have been trying Ebay off and on. I'll keep trying.
