    MTG has also been declared as the worlds most complicated game, and impossible to predict.

    Unless you've been playing Standard any time in the last two years haha. Basically play broken card until it's banned, then play the next broken card.

    Ain't that the truth. Pretty much every chase mythic / rare in almost every set. Surprised they banned Omnath so early in the release...

    What era are the cards from? And what is best avenue for gauging value now?
    Everything I owned previously was 1990-2006. So nothing really new or current. I've had success flipping graded 80's and 90's stuff now. But all the 90's stuff needs to be hall of famers or gem mint graded and either rookies or short printed inserts.

    And Ebay sales is 100% the market value. Beckett book values isn't a thing and anything popular is selling for 3x, 4x, 5x book value. Use www.sportscards.com to find our what stuff has sold for.

    I have a few boxes of random hockey, football, baseball cards, and some comic cards as well. I have no idea what they are worth. I also have a box that has most of a complete set of 1979 or 1980 baseball cards that I have had since like '85. I have no idea what they are worth. I need to find a way to see if they are worth anything. I also have a few hockey cards signed by guy lafleur, frank maholovich, and bobby hull from an old timer hockey game in the late 90's. Again, no idea what kind of value they hold. I have no interest in keeping them, but no idea how to liquidate them or value them.

    I have a bunch of hockey cards from the 90's, and even more Marvel Fleer Ultra cards haha. They used to be 5 bucks a pack.

    If you post or PM your hockey stuff I can tell you what its worth. The rest you'd have to search ebay listings as I only really follow hockey.

    Anywho... couple of my collection currently. All the 90's stuff is only worth anything in high grade, for example you can't sell a raw ungraded copy of most of these 90's cards for $5, where a gem mint will sell for $75-$150+

    Curious as to the cost of having them graded? Thinking I may take the time to go through my collection soon.

    $30-$50/card and timeline of about 6 months as the companies are swamped and super backed up.

    I'd guess that's the value of the Marty-B and Jagr Score rookies. Am I wrong?

    Jagr around $50 yup. Brodeur around $125, as it’s his only RC.

    Those cards aren’t worth $2 ungraded lol. At one point I had over 50 copies of that Jagr card, crazy over printed.

    So you first have to go through your pile, get a value on each one yourself, then send the $100+ ones away spend $50 each to have a hope of selling? Card collecting doesn't sound very fun, that's for sure.

    Someone tried to convince me that a modest card collection would “pay for college one day”.

    Reality is, they take up space and you would feel bad about getting rid of them.

    Sounds like the real winners are the companies grading cards.

    May have to check out my old box of cards, I know I have at least a few of the ones you have shown.
