Gentlemen,

A few quick questions, hopefully you can help...

1. what is the value of a Cal Ripkin Jr RC
Answer: It depends on which of his rookie cards and the condition. You've got Topps, Topps Traded, Donruss & Fleer to choose from. Also can depend on graded or raw.

2. same question but for a Rickie Henderson RC
Answer: Beckett values a Henderson rookie as high as $70. Prices will vary by condition either graded or raw.

3. what is the foremost industry price guide...is it still Beckett?
Answer: Beckett is still seen to be reliable although many folks quote SMR (Sports Market Report). Surely Beckett is good enough to get a decent idea.

4. is ebay the best place to unload cards?
Answer: EBay is probably the easiest place to unload cards and using their search feature you are able to see approx. value in the open market for your cards.

Hope this helps.

Regards

Ron

Ron,

Thanks for the reply. I haven't cracked open my shoeboxes of cards in at least 15 years, but I'm positive after seeing the scan on ebay that my Cal R. rookie cards (i think i have 5) are topps. A little disappointing that they're only worth $15-$25. I guess in the card biz older does not always equal more valuable.

Wonder what ever happend to the other two "future stars," Bob Boner and Jeff Schneider; doubt i'd be asking that question if they hadn't shared real estate on cal's rc---talk about 15 minutes.
