Default Baseball Cards

Does anyone still collect them? Are they worth what they used to be? (Probably not) I just looked through mine tonight and was picking out all the phillies cards, Are they worth keeping for a few years yet?

I have my cards from the 80's to 90's, and earlier. i have a collection that fills awhole closet, but they wont go on the market, i'm saving them for my kids when they grow up, so if anything pass them down, they are valuable in a few ways that way!

Hang on to them is my best suggestion. If you want pricing guides to keep track Beckett baseball sells price guides at any book store

Honestly trading cards have lost a lot of value. One reason is the game used memorabilia cards. A 1988-89 Randy Johnson rookie card is worth maybe 2.00

I have roughly 13K cards. Most are all newer cards from 1999+

Most people are just after the game used cards anymore. Only older cards that have value are the cards from the 50's-70's

My Mickey Mantle is still worth 300 and my Willie Mays is still worth 400.

I got a couple catfish hunter cards.

If you have one that has his real first name they are kinda worth more.

Ya dont ebay them.

Most card shops will buy them. They wont give ya book value for them usually half or little less. They gotta make money on them also.
