    Sports Cards

    I have a few binders full of baseball cards that I have no reason to keep. Are these things worth anything? Worth a trip to a card shop? Garage sale attempt and then recycle?

    I have zero interest in sorting through these for some sort of valuable card.

    If you take them to a shop and they offer you a few hundred dollars go buy beer and toilet paper and call it a win.

    I bought a few boxes of Basketball cards in the early 1990's. They're barely worth wast I paid for them. I last checked about 10 years ago

    Pretty worthless. If you have something you know was worth a lot back in the day it may be worth looking up. Bad news is you’ll have to pay someone to grade it if you want to sell it.

    I just googled this, can’t vouch for it: https://cardmavin.com/category/baseball

    All the money was made in the hysteria days.

    ‘83 or older, it’s worth checking ebay for last price sold on the star cards. But newer, cut them up and make a Frankenstein collage out of various body parts...

    My FIL just sold a bunch of 50s era cards (some mantle, Mays, etc) and made a few thousand bucks. Went through a broker type who set up the auction. These were rare and in great shape though, and it was really only two or three cards that brought in anything. Not a great retirement plan.
