    Anyone know anything about baseball cards?

    I found a huge box full of baseball cards in my attic while getting things around for the yard sale this weekend. They were my ex's (an ex from four years ago). I have no way of contacting him...and frankly don't wish to. Is there a site somewhere that someone recommends to check prices?

    I don't know what to do with them, but if some of them are worth money, I don't want to throw them out either!

    i'd take them to a few sports card places, or some place similar....get more than one opinion...

    there are books that list the prices too, you might want to check into that.

    i don't know about websites though....

    DON'T throw them out nor sell them at your yard sale.

    As much as I'm a fan of the game, I've never been a collector. I do know that they can be worth a LOT of money. Check the Yellow Pages of the nearest Metro area for Baseball Card shops and set up an appointment to have them checked out. You might have a few diamonds in the rough that are worth several hundred dollars a card.

    Yeah I didn't want to sell them at the yard sale, cuz I know sometimes they are worth a whole lot of money...

    I noticed a Nolan Ryan Rookie Card in a plastic case...one of the few in a plastic case. I thought maybe that might be worth something.

    yeah, a Nolan Ryan rookie card is worth major bucks in good condition

    haha, i was looking at pricing for that card too....yea, its worth a lot of money if its mint condition...

    don't do anything with the cards until you get expert advice on pricing...seriously. if you are gonna sell, get experts on this, you dont' want to underprice anything.

    if it were me though, i'd keep the cards...but thats me...
