Ways to sell your baseball cards


2 reasons why auctions are a 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 really selling but perhaps easiest with possible $$$ return.
ASSUMPTIONS:
#1) You are one of the RARE tax payers in America
#2) You have mostly late 80's & 90's
Consider keeping better stuff for selling later and donating the rest. Tax deduction used to be based on lesser of "what-it-cost" and "What-it-is-Worth". For "What-it-is-Worth" I use Beckett which often is higher than what you paid. Check with your tax guy.

1968 Baseball Marbles
by Creative Creations


1968 Baseball Marble
These 'Marbles' were issued in 'blister packs' of 20 marbles. The 'Marble' was a ¾”-diameter clear plastic orb containing a paper insert with the player's portrait on the front a facsimile autograph on the back.
The blister packs themselves are collectible. They measure 9-3/4” x 10-1/2”, with the marbles positioned on front; the pack’s back features a baseball design awash in approximately 60 player's facsimile signatures. 1968 Baseball Marbles The package mentions 24 series of 20 marbles per but only 120 different marbles were created.

1968 Baseball Marble One of the more interesting collectibles from the late 1960's, they are sought after by both Team and Player collectors.

For another similar interesting issue see the 1970 Chemtoy SuperBalls.

1991 Cardboard Dreams Baseball Cards
Checklist & Values


1991 Cardboard Dreams Promo #1 1991 Cardboard Dreams Promo #2 Neat little oddball set with interesting fronts & backs with a very unusual mix of players.     Cards issued as promotional lead-in for "Cardboard Dreams" a new soon to be issued sportscard magazine. The cards were given out at Southern California and a couple of larger regional baseball card shows in random 1-card packs.
Shortly before magazine's 1st issue, MLB began several lawsuits against similar magazines. Soon after, plans for the magazine were dropped leaving just the small run of promotional cards (said to be 5,000) and some scarce proofs. 1991 Cardboard Dreams Ryan back

Baseball card collecting terms (part C)

Cabinet Card Were oversized trading cards featuring paintings issued mostly 1910-1915.

Card Show is a gathering of dealers & collectors looking to buy/sell/trade sports cards and memorabilia.

Card Stock is the material a card is printed on. Usually paper-based, today companies play with the card stock and sometimes it appears to be wood or leather or see-thru acrylic ...

Cello Pack is a card pack whose wrapper is see-thru plastic. Usually the top & bottom cards are seen. Unopened cello packs showing major stars and rookies sell for heavy premiums.

Centering is the balance of the borders: top/bottom & left/right. On perfectly-centered cards, top/bottom borders match as do the left/right borders. Centering is presented as a set of numbers & directions and often included with the grade. Perfectly-centered is "50/50 t/b" AND "50/50 l/r". As centering gets worse, one number increases and the other decreases. For example: 90/10 t/b is considered extremely off-center top to bottom. The numbers add up to 100 (50/50, 60/40, 90/10 ...).

Certificate Of Authenticity (COA) A document used to verify legitimacy of a collectible. NOTE: Keep in mind that COA's are easier to fake then autographs.

Common A card of a non-star player is considered a "Common" as opposed to cards of a star players or specialty/subset cards such as league leaders, teams cards, World Series cards...

Condition (Grade) Centering, corner wear, photo clarity, edges, creases, print flaws ... all combine to determine a card's condition or grade. Along with rarity/scarcity it is the major factor in a card's value.

Crease Defect usually caused by bending the card. Hard to see, or not, a crease lowers the card's grade (VG or lower) and greatly diminishes it's value.
