Man this thread got out of wack fast. First Dan do what is best for you period, I know I gave you a bunch of raw cards and they were a gift. I expect you to do what is best for you with them, sell away if needed.

I would recommend that if you are selling, make sure to get close to VCP average on them and I would send the HOFers off to Sterling to auction off to maximize your value. Dont sell off fast to the first offer and take a big hit. I think Dan will be back one day collecting, once you start its hard to stay away.

Good luck Dan and I hope you stick around the boards.

I agree completely. A gift is simply that and Dan should do what is best for him. Circumstances always change and we all have to react accordingly. I also want to second Scott's good advice about selling your set - make sure to position yourself to get maximum value, even if it takes a bit longer.

Best of luck Dan and I hope that you can return to collecting in the future.

I actually disagree with Scott, I think if the stars get sold off seperately it would be much harder to move the single commons...

No worries Pat, I just feel that the only winner when cards are sold in a lot is the buyer. Only very rare sets seem to bring more than selling them separate like E107, T209-2, etc. I remember the 1957 SGC set that was sold by a board member here in REA a year or two ago and he took a bath and it was an unreal set, he would have gotten a ton more if broken up.

That said many of Dans cards were BIN's purchases from ebay and those he will take a loss on whether grouped or single so might as well do a grouping and put them up for auction, maybe include a few minor stars but I would auction all the superstars separate.

But hey do what you feel is best as you take a risk selling either way.

All of us have learned lessons the hard way. Maybe it's his turn. I used to refer to my cards as investments. Now I know better. It's a collection, a hobby. Hobbies rarely make money.

WOW, I just read this and can't believe bbo would make a comment about the free cards.Why not send pm if your that upset on something you were not involved with? I'm sorry for Dan that he has to sell his cards but there are more important things then a hobby. It was a horrible comment and maybe stuff like this is why there is not many people on here!!

That's pretty funny, hit-guy. If that were the case, the CU board would be as barren as the back side of the moon. Gotta love the naive, liberal word-police on all message boards though. All pure as the driven snow and above reproach, indeed. I've had PM's from people thanking me for having the stones to put the question out there. The (over)reaction by everyone involved speaks volumes. Thanks for making my point.

You have REALLY BIG STONES Bad Body Odor, writing crap on a message board.Its a shame that you see the bad in people and don't understand that some people run into financial situations.It was a gift that a few members wanted to give to help out 2 fellow board members, they never asked for it and nobody had to give anything only if they wanted.So he can throw out, sell or use them as coasters if he wants. I guess you would ask for a house warming gift back if the person decides they want to sell their house a year or two later...JOKE See Ya
