I will contact him again about his interest in selling the balance of 14 packs as a lot at a better price. Thanks

Why doesn't he search the packs? He can still sell the wrapper.

That could be a plan -- but then they lose their appeal to someone like me. I would buy them as wrappers but at a way reduced price. I am interested either way but would want to see more than one example unless that is the best condition they are in. Also I am in the Northeast and my power keeps going out. We lost it for 16 hours today, and hope it stays on all night. Stay warm wherever you are.

I'm thinking if the packs are only valuable as wrappers and sold for wrapper prices, then why not at least see what condition the cards are in?

Agreed. As a kid I could peak in a pack and leave less evidence than this one shows.

I also suspect that if the sealed packs were in exceptional condition they would have sold for far greater prices. That is why the picture may show one of the better survivors of the remaining packs. We will see --- or maybe we won't. Best to all.

Agree with Packs. For those prices, open them up and sell the wrappers/cards. I doubt anyone would believe these cards are actually unsearched....at least enough to pay a decent premium.

If all commons, sell the wrappers and cards in a single lot. If a decent card pops up sell it with the actual wrapper (even if somewhat damaged). Can even record yourself opening them as proof.

I tend to disagree - it actually makes more sense to sell them as is. How long will it take to sell them as wrappers and cards. Just ask anyone who had a choice between selling their collectible as one lot versus individually. I could see if they were graded, then an auction scenario could be the best option. But I buy from most auction houses, and often I find that I get terrific deals, and I buy to resell. Either way, our seller wants $500 a pack which is too much for me anyway. If they all look the same, I might be interested at $300 a pack; maybe not; I would have to see more pix. Best regards to all, Steve

So there were unopened sealed packs in this find as well? I made what I thought was a very fair offer for 2 packs almost a year ago. But maybe he dose not understand the large drop from sealed to almost sealed in price.
