Hi, all! I was just browsing because the coin boards are kind of quiet. Everyone must be at shows this weekend. Anyway, since I'm here I thought I may as well ask:

Can anyone tell me what these are worth?

I have 18 factory boxes of baseball cards and 4 smaller sets of MLB Debut, Rookies & Traded. In all, there are more than 12,000 cards. Some of the boxes have been opened, some not, but all of the cards are intact and in "factory" mint condition. I'm not a card collector, it's just that I couldn't sleep one night and buying these (I can't believe I did a QVC!) gave me something to do to pass the time. It was more than 10 years ago, and the boxes are still sitting on a shelf.

Topps
1986 - 792ct
1986 - 500ct
1987 - 792ct
1987 - 500ct
1989 - 500ct
1989 - MLB Debut - 150ct
1989 - Traded Series - 132ct
1990 - 792ct
1990 - 500ct
1991 - 792ct

Donruss
1987 - 650ct(?) Estimated because I don't want to open them. Anyone know the actual count?
1988 - 650ct(?) Ditto '87
1989 - Rookies - 57ct
1990 - 650ct(?) Ditto '87 & '88
1991 - 784ct

Fleer
1988 - 672ct
1989 - 672ct
1990 - 672ct

Upper Deck
1991 - 800ct
1994 - 670ct

Bowman
1989 - 484ct

Score
1989 - Rookie & Traded - 120ct

Thanks in advance!

Chris

Yes there is someone here so I will break the news to you(since nobody else will) that your collection of unopened boxes is worth less then it will cost to ship

Like I said, I'm not a card collector. I was just looking for an honest answer.

Thanks,

Chris

Sometimes it sucks when you can't sleep. In your case it costs a lot of
money too because jackstraw is basically right. Most of this stuff is not
worth the space it is taking up. Sorry about you bad luck.

It didn't cost me that much! I don't think it was bad luck either. Look at it this way...................

One day someone, possibly a relative, will be the proud owner of sets of mintstate baseball cards that are 150 years old.

If you have a dream about out-posting me, you better wake up and apologize.

By the way, Donruss factory sets in the 1980s were generally 660 cards.

I believe that your "best set" is 1989 Upper Deck, worth about $30 to $60.
The others are under $10 (some under $5), for the most part.

Valiantman,

I didn't see any 89 Upper Deck in the lot.

I think that in 150 years your relatives will only have to wait about another 150
years to maybe get $200 for everything.

Does that $200 include 300 years of inflation on the shipping costs ...

I guess the question is what will get more hits?
The question and answer forum here or his cards on ebay?

Whoops! Maybe I just wished it was on that list.
