Sold that Jordan I posted for $150 within two days. I think I sold too cheap but whatever. Bought another Pokemon card.


Put up a 1960's card also. Willie Stargell and the photo makes the corners look flawed from the blur but its in nice condition.

I see tiktok videos are full of sports cards in 2020 also. Some people are doing it wrong in my opinion but maybe I'm wrong. I'm listing cards not on ebay for others to buy and list on ebay or somewhere higher since its rare. If a good card isnt on the internet then its rare still. I added 3 single Jerry Rice cards to my website plus a Joe Montana 1986 Topps. Tiktok users and gary v are buying like 100 of one card!??
Are you saying Pokémon cards have value? My son has a big collection that I just uncovered while doing a massive clean up around the house.

I have so many cards in my garage. Boxes and binders of baseball cards left behind by my ex (just the mass produced sets from the 80's and 90's) TONS of Magic, TONS of Pokemon, some Digimon and other obscure monster cards that my kids were into.

I've never had a card collection of my own so it's ironic that all this junk ended up being left behind with me! I've been warned by people "don't toss them they might be valuable!" so I haven't. But I know they aren't valuable, and I will toss them or give them away at some point. Mass produced anything will never be valuable enough to be worth the space they are taking up. When I move they won't be coming with me.

Check the Pokemon cards on Ebay in completed listings. I would double check all the non sports cards!!!

Sports cards still hot, saw a video on CBS about them. Big prices for some. Still holding a few cards. Put some $5 cards in one touch cases for sale, plus a few graded cards.

I am glad to here you are doing well. I will do my best to start unloading mine. I have had little success with cards from the 70's onward ungraded selling.

If you are willing to spend the $60+ on grading it should be a money card. It's what I want to do with the Montana Rookie I have. It's high grade. Maybe the Elway Rookie. But I need to move a lot of stuff.
And move it in a reasonable amount of time.

This dude probably has the best sports card information for everyone. He creates sports card information content.

Haha, I just read through this thread and enjoyed it, mostly because of Shhon's passion. (Gary Vee cares about making relative pennies off card collecting? Who knew). I was a huge card collector from age 5-16 or so (am 34 now), and I recently wondered about how much I might be able to get for a few of the more valuable cards in my collection. I actually wouldn't want to unload the whole collection, as there are nice childhood memories associated with them, but selling anything of 'real value' would be fine by me (and I may have nothing that really qualifies, if I set the bar for 'real value' at >$100...with one possibly major exception that I'm about to describe below).

Shhon, and whoever else in this thread is an enthusiast, I have one good story for you: back in freshman year of high school, which for me was 1999-2000, I recall learning about a massive spike in value in a certain unique sports card: a Tiger Woods cardboard/perforated Sports Illustrated For Kids card. 'Legitimate' golf cards being rare as they were, and probably still are, that card was considered Tiger's rookie, and graded versions of it were starting to sell for thousands on EBay. Just so happened that I had an SI For Kids subscription from ages 4-12 or whatever, and I (unlike most) saved all the cards in plastic sheets...so I went up to my bedroom, searched, and eventually found the TW 'rookie', in very good condition. Immediately looked to send it away to, um, Texas I believe, where Beckett Grading is located, with the idea of selling it on EBay, but my mother shot me down. Imagine my horror when I later found out that the market for that card spiked at...$100,000. I have that card, ungraded, to this day, and clearly that's the card I should be looking to sell (if I were to sell anything), although the market has crashed. I don't believe Beckett even accepts grading submissions for that card anymore (at least, that's what I recall reading in the past), and I think the best I could maybe do now would be to fetch a few hundred for it, ungraded. But I'd maybe have to do a little more research.

Here's an article on the TW card, from December, which mentions that a 10 sold at auction for $26,400. I assume my card would grade at 9 or above, but given that I'm biased and have never had a single card graded, what do I know, really. I'm surprised to see that the card is still selling for that amount--I found this article while looking for an old article, about the 100k+ sale from back in my high school days
