The 1976 Crane football disc set contains 30 cards, actually 3 3/8" diameter discs,
including one of only two 1976 issues containing the rookie card of an
unknown rookie named Walter Payton. His only other 1976 issue, his 1976 Topps card,
sells for over $200 !!!
The set is filled with other stars and Hall-of-Famers including:
Terry Bradshaw,Roger Staubach,Alan Page,Ed Marinaro (more famous as a star actor in the Hill Street Blues TV series ...
A recently discovered version that was inserted into selected packages of Crane
potato chips have been found. Franco Harris can only be found in this
"product inserted" version of the discs. None of the second version of the discs are considered part of the complete set due to their scarcity.

Ways to sell your baseball cards
If buying, for great prices check my weekly
Vintage Sportscard Auction
2 reasons auctions are popular way to sell vintage sports cards.
#1 Desirable items tend to get top dollar (or better !)
#2 Everything goes
... This can be good - Everything gone, happy with final total
... or can be very bad - Everything gone, but at super low prices
OTHER WAYS TO SELL YOUR CARDS
•eBay Buy-it-Now •card store •swap meet
•Craigslist •garage/yard sale
or •DONATE to a charity for tax write-off
Not selling but perhaps easiest with possible $$$ return.
#1) You are one of the RARE tax payers left in America
#2) You have mostly late 80's & 90's "junk"
Consider donating the "junk" and keep better stuff to sell later.
Tax deduction was based on LESSER of "what-it-cost" & "What-it's-Worth".
For "What-it's-Worth", I use Beckett which can be higher than what you paid.
Check with your tax guy.

Are sports cards valuable ?
Like all collectibles, over time some sports cards go down in value,
others go up and some can even become very valuable.
Card values are based on many factors:
player popularity, scarcity, condition & collector interest.
A card can be scarce but without demand value may not be great.
Q: What are some ways to collect cards ?
* Complete sets by year & issue
* Cards of your favorite player
* Cards of your favorite team "TEAM SETS"
* Rookie cards
* Hall-of-Famer cards
* I even had a girlfriend that collected Don Mossi (checkout his ears),
players whose last name start with "Z", and the Brett brothers George &
Ken (she had a crush on George).
* "TYPE COLLECTING" (everyone should at least do a little of this !)
is collecting at least one of each different "type" of issue.
On scarcer issues you can add a less expensive common
while on others you can select your favorite player or team.
