  • Some questions for my fellow collectors...

    Hey, I'm looking to unload on the majority of my collection and am wondering what is the best way to sell them. E-bay? Facebook? Craigslist? I collected mainly during the 'junk wax' era, and don't have a lot of rare stuff.. some random modern inserts, autos, jersey, parallels. Streamlining my personal collection.
    Also, the 1990's Topps Gold parallels... any real value attached to those?
    Any feedback appreciated.
    Enough already! Let's get Quiz and Frank White into the Hall Of Fame ASAP!!! Go ROYALS!!!

    I got rid of a 5,000 count box on eBay, got around $50 for it IIRC. The rest (about 10,000) I gave to a mentally challenged son of a friend. I still have all my Reds and several "star" and Hall of Fame players. You might be able to get something for the inserts, GU and autographs. I don't think the Gold parallels really have any value unless you find someone trying to complete a parallel set, or player/team collectors.

      I wouldn't trust Craigslist for anything.
      What's THAT guy doing?

        If you have the time and energy to get started on TTM, you could always try and get a few of those cards signed, then sell them on eBay individually. Might bring in a few extra bucks.

          I would take some of your Reds' cards off your hands.

            I used to sell stuff on Ebay. Became a headache. If you sell on Craigslist. Do not invite anyone to your house. Insist on meeting up at a place like Starbucks, Mc'ds, or Burger King, etc.
            I plan on trying Facebook. There are plenty of groups you can join that will allow you to post stuff for sale. Good Luck
