No, these sports cards have not been graded yet. I will send them out for grading if you think they have high values.

Delia Apr 28, 10:32 UTC

Some cards will likely have a broad value spectrum that grading would help narrow. I'll start working on a list of values for the group and get back to you with a value range for the group. Some cards may be worth sending out for grading, others possibly less so. I'll start working on this group; it may take some time...

Many of these cards can be acquired on Amazon or eBay for as little as $5-10, which I used as the minimum baseline. The higher end demonstrates what an average grade card unsigned card might bring at auction. It may only be worth having the potentially more valuable cards graded and encased. I couldn't read the Strawberry card sufficiently to tell who produced the card or the year- so sort of took a guess at potential value...

There are hundreds of sports cards like these that are sitting in the storage and safety deposit box collecting dust. Please advise what you need me to do in order to get these cards appraised.

Hi Kirk,
Let me check with our client services dept on how they recommend handling such extensively large collections. One of us will get back to you within a few days.

Kirk tillery May 02, 23:52 UTC

Thank You!

Delia May 03, 09:54 UTC

Good morning, Kirk,
I've heard back from our client services dept; for us to do the collection, we would need to have appraisal inquiries submitted for 10-12 cards at a time (it can be a slightly larger amount if the group makes sense, say, all cards from one particular team, to the extent that it makes sense to price as a group rather than individually).
Does that help?

Kirk tillery May 04, 04:53 UTC

Yes, this helps a lot. I hope to get started soon on this project. Thank You Once Again,
