Thank you. I have locked in a safe with a dehumidifer. I think it is mint but I'm not sure I would hang $10,000 on it. I have not pulled it out in a while so I don't even know what card it is.

I have several others, but I'm not a collector. I just accidentally held onto these since I was in junior high school.

My son was born in 1989 and I got him a box of Rookie cards each year for Christmas. They are still un-opened boxes and there should be a lot of good players in those but maybe his soon to be new son will enjoy them one of these days.

There is a Nolan Ryan rookie PSA 9 on EBAY right now for close to $7K. My suggestion is pick a few of your favorites and if they look to be in excellent condition (corners, centering ect) send them to PSA and have them graded. Then they will be worth something. Or you then have a graded card to hand down to your kids.
Will PSA buy them or are they just a grading service?

Not to hijack, but I have a few complete sets, in binders, and I think some loose cards too. Early 90s. I have never watched baseball, so I don't even know why I bought them.

Anyway, I found them in my dads shop when I was cleaning it out. I was going to add them to the dumpster next time I went. If anyone here wants them, send me a PM. Pickup in the Houston area would be nice, but I'll ship them on your dime.

Perhaps Dale you could invent some type of card game that results in the destruction of the played card and over time the cards left may have some value? Kinda like the old card in the bicycle spoke trick!

What's PSA and how do I find them?

Pick was a good dude, last I heard he was working for my now competition in the stone business.

Looking back through them has brought back a lot of good old memories.

I think I'm gonna keep most of the sets, and the ones pictured....just because.

I'll give away the rest, probably something decent in them too. Probably not many that kids now would recognize though.

That would've put you right behind the greatness of Jr's Café. Golden burger finally went ahead and change the name, they are now a Vietnamese restaurant. There's a gun store in there now called Bear Creek firearms, but I have not stopped.

No Honus Wagner T206 in the bunch, mostly just a bunch from the Mid 80s through early 90s.

4 or 5 Topps complete sets 87-91 one still in wrapping, '86, '87,'88, and '89 Topps Traded sets, these years have a bunch of hall of famers in them.

30 or 40 different Will Clark cards from rookie to 92 or so
Buncha Bo Jackson

There's probably a bunch of Barry Bonds stuff in there, but I don't know because I didn't like him so I didn't seperate.

There are a few thousand random Topps, Donruss, and Fleer cards all in cases. Some Upper Deck and others.

A couple late 70s Nolan Ryan, Dennis Eckersley RC, Juan Marichal RC

A bunch of Becketts from late 80s and 90s with cool covers. Bo, Nolan, Michael Jordan, etc..



I know they aren't worth much if anything, just kinda looking for a little direction if there's somewhere to unload stuff like this as a lot? Or if any of that stuff rings any bells and someone here might want it.


I'd carry it all to a shop, but I'm sure they'd just offer me 20 bucks, and I have no grounds to really argue?


I was sure all this stuff would be worth a fortune by now, but I'd sure rather have what I spent on it. Any direction would be appreciated.
Found all my old baseball cards in a box around Christmas Time at my parents. I remember a couple cards that were in the $30-50 range when I got them 20 years ago. Checked the value on them now and they were $1.80 and $2.10 respectively. I shut the box and thought about all my parents money I wasted on those **** things.

Good memories right there. I have the Bo Breaker, the b/w Bo card and that Nolan Ryan Angels card in my stack.
