How to sell my 1966, 1967, 1968 Baseball Cards (Topps)?
I've been holding onto these cards since I was a teenager, but am ready to sell them now. Have lots of high value cards, including a rookie Nolan Ryan, and Mantle (2 - 1967), Mays (1967) and Clemente cards.
Can someone suggest a strategy(ies) for selling these cards? I don't have them graded, but they are all in plastic CRM 9 card sheets in 3 ring binders (except for the Rookie Ryan and Mantle 1967 in a cases).
Last time I talked to a local sports card shop a few years ago, they told me it would be difficult to find anyone who would pay the value of the entire collection because of the total value of the cards.
Is there a way to do an inventory and then have a broker sell them on a commission basis? A reputable dealer here on the East Coast? I don't have the time to get them graded and then sell them individually on E-Bay.
You can see the cards (scanned in their plastic 8 1/2 - 10 pages at:
I also have additional common cards, about 200 (1966), 275 (1967) and 275 (1968). They are also in plastic 8 x 10 pages in 3 ring binders.
