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.

"Reserve" auction bids come into play after an auction ends.
If "Hammer" price is less than "Reserve" bid no sale.
Not very auction bidder friendly.

Baseball card collecting terms (part B)
Bazooka Bazooka Bubble Gum put baseball cards on the back of their
boxes from 1959 thru 1971. Complete boxes and panels can get extremely costly.
Most kids back then could not afford complete boxes of bubble gum at one
making Bazooka cards quite scarce. I actually don't recall ever obtaining
a Bazooka card directly from a box as a kid. Do you ???
Black Sox Scandal Name given to the the most famous scandal in
baseball history after the 1919 Chicago White Sox versus the Cincinatti Reds

criminal charges but 8 players still received a lifetime ban from
professional baseball including the All-Time great "Shoeless" Joe Jackson.

These cards are usually not in packs and are either "PROOF ISSUES" or
were removed from the factory in some way.

Border is the part of the card that surrounds the photo or image.
Bowman was a card manufacturer in the 1940's and 1950's that was

Break a term used to indicate the opening of a set, pack, box or case.
Break Value is the total book value of each card added up individually.
The break value of a set is usually way, way more than the value of the complete set.
