Default Lot of late 70s football cards

How much would you offer for the following lot of late 70s football cards? This is the only thing I have to go on and am curious what I should offer. If you zoom in on the pic they seem to be in pretty good shape. They also appear to be organized by team. Thoughts?

(I apologize if this is not the place for this type of question).

Maybe 50 for everything? Provided the elastic haven't ruined them and there are some stars..

In doubled-over rubber bands? Not much.

Honestly, I'd pass on this lot. Don't see any big names. Looks like most are 1979 Topps. You can find a nice set for around $100 on ebay.

I went in for $75 shipped. They supposedly were found in an attic from a neighbor who died. Seller said he did not know anything about sports cards and was just trying to unload it. Supposedly did not even go through the cards. He appears to sell a lot of junk on Facebook Marketplace.

Zoomed in the cards look decent (corners and centering). I am a sucker for finding some ungraded 9s and 10s. Also the chance the Ozzie Newsome (top left) could be a 9 or 10 got my heart racing a bit (centering looks spot on).

It will probably be filled with commons but worth the money to make my night going through the cards.

This damn hobby sucks!!

So the box came last night. Maybe 2 1/2 feet by 2 feet. Over 5k cards?!?! I had also paid $150 for a shitload of baseball cards as well so I am $225 in (150 for baseball + 75 for football).

The seller was true on his word. The box was un-searched. I apologize but I also have some pics of some of the baseball card pulls (in the football ball card forum)

The Ozzie Newsome card was there and it is in GREAT shape. Sharp corners and centered. Dare I think it could have a chance?!?!

I just ran through for rookies in the football cards last night. No Tony Dorsett rookie but some other nice pulls. I hit the trifecta of late 70 early 80s baseball rookies as you will see in the attached link.

So glad I took the chance. Here is the link to my initial pass. Going back tonight to look for second year HOF and the like.

The Eddie Murray is rarely so nicely centered.

You made out really nice with the baseball cards. The Ozzie Newsome looks like a PSA 7, maybe an 8. Congrats!

Here is the full monty. I pulled every card that was not a common. The 1979 are in the best shape but all held up pretty good.

This link has ALL Football cards (Not bad for 75 bucks!):
