1979 Frank Garo Legends of The West - Worth Anything?

Hello all. I recently got a set of 1979 Frank Garo Legends Of The West trading cards. 25 cards in all. It was as part of a larger auction lot I got recently. Doesn't seem to be much in the way of sales or info out there for them. Has anyone heard of these/seen them/know if they have any value or if anyone collects them? Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance for anyone who replies. If you copy the links below and paste them into a new tab you can see the pictures. I can't seem to figure out how to insert a picture into a post for the life of me. Sorry!

    After you pass a certain probationary period, which might be only known to PSA, you'll get an icon that looks something like a sun over a mountain. Once you have that icon, you'll be able to use it to post images.

    Not what you were looking for with your bump, but that's all I've got.

    My guess is, very little value. Most cards have little to no value. It's the nature of ink on cardboard. This is one where you would probably rather have the book. Maybe someone should make a card set of books. Like, #1 could be Catcher in the Rye. So, the sports card guys might assume it's a book about a catcher. It could even be a flip card, So when you opened it maybe it could have the book printed real small on the inside. So small that people wouldn't be able to read it. Leading to them being curious about what it said. Perhaps so curious that they buy the book. Or the next card in the series Or a magnifying glass. Or something. Either way, it seems to me, it would probably spur the economy. Or at least people would have something new to ask the value of. Probably a hit.

    Can you tell me what was so offensive about my post that it warranted such a sarcastic, derisive, and condescending reply from you, a total stranger? I'm genuinely curious. I got the cards as part of an auction lot. I don't know anything about the cards so I posted a question about them on a forum for, wait for it, trading cards. Yeah they aren't beam team or 1st edition Pokemon black star promos or whatever you think is worthy of making a post about but did l deserve to be made fun of for asking about them? Since it's impossible for it to be less than zero I could not give less of a shit about what you think about this post, these cards, or anything else. I just would genuinely like to know your reasoning. I am stumped so I must be missing something.

    Or somebody could make cards about athletes, like baseball players or football players. Or characters in a movie like Star Wars! Or online assholes and bullies! You could be card #1. Think about it. You could become a highly sought after collectible instead of the anonymous nobody you are.

    Since you don't seem to grasp this fact, all trading card sets are of people categorized by a set of arbitrary criteria. Athletes, by sport, movie stars and movie characters, musicians and bands, tv shows, etc, etc. Famous people from the days of the old west are no different as far as I can tell, unless you can edify me on this point.

    First, welcome to the boards. Please don't allow some of the posters here to get under your skin. There are several idiots here, I think they have been banned in the past and come back with a new name and a bad attitude.

    Secondly, these look like really nice cards!

    They look like they are in nice condition and there are plenty of people who collect cards that don't depict athletes.

    I have no idea what they are worth, but I like them!

    Hey thanks for the kind words! It is genuinely appreciated. I was wrong to react as I did to the one poster.

    You WAY overreacted, but don't worry about it, life goes on. CardGeek's post was really odd, he posted around midnight, he could have been drunk or high. >:)

    Many of us long time members are always leery when new users come in and ask questions about what it's worth but rarely participate after they get their answers. Like daltex said after you pass a certain probationary period members will be more accepting.
