    I have a few thousand cards dating back to about 1988 or so. Wondering about if they're still worth something and how to get rid of them for the best price.

    Depends how you want to do it and how much time you want to put into it. You could go to a shop sell them all as a lot and take less. You can spend more time price them and sell indiv. Or take some highlight cards and list them on ebay. Or another option since all the cards are from 88 you can burn all of them and yell roided up cunts as they burn..

    I'm sure they are worth something - my hubby has tons of those things from when he was younger. My son LOVES showing them off to his friends.

    If nothing else, hold onto them for one of your kids - my son is 15 and JUST now started to show interest in these things a couple of years ago.

    I remember sinking ALL my money into these fucking things when I was younger.
    Now theyre not worth much of anything unless you get the cards that have actual pieces of equipment molded into them.
    I'll hang onto mine and give them to my son....if I have one.

    If your main concern is making money and they don't take up a lot of space, just hold on to them. The fad will probably come back at some point and that will drive up prices.

    I am moving to Germany next year maybe, so a few bucks would be nice. I'd even sell for like $250, which I would guess is incredibly lowball.

    Unfortunately, for any of your better cards to have any significant value, you would need to pay to have the cards graded and hope that they rate well.

    eh, i'll just sell the couple boxes for a couple hundred, hopefully and be done with it.

    Or i'll just go to a baseball show and mutiliate them.

    Odds are they're worth nothing. Card companies ruined the indusrty by including too many insert cards into packs and made the regular cards worthless. I have a small room full of cards that I collected between 1988 and 1994. Mostly all worthless now. You would have to have something very rare for it to have any real value.

    Card collecting started to ger really popular sometime between 86 and 88. The card companies cashed in and flooded the market making all cards after 88 or so worthless. I sat on several rated rookie cards that were worth several hundred and now I can't get shit for them. Fuck, what was I thinking at 12. Check Beckett in the link above but you are probably out of luck.

    I've got thousands of hockey cards, football cards Marvel Cards, and Star Trek Cards dating back to the late 80's, some are worth a fair bit now, but I look at it as an investment.
