Default Star-Shop at Home Set of blue border 1997 ('84-'85) Olympic Basketball Cards

I have a sealed 9 card set of the 1984-1985 Star cards. I have read about the controversy over these cards and have read the Steve Taft interview and links to the lawsuit against Star and Robert Levin. After reading everything, my question is still, "Do they have value? How is that value determined?" I can't find any current listings for sale of these sets except one on ebay for $10,000. I guess you can ask whatever you want, but I'm looking for a more realistic value. These were left to my husband by my Mother-In-Law along with thousands of cards that I have been able to sell. She was a die-hard Shop at Home shopper. Any information would be appreciated.

The best thing to do is to send a message to Steve Taft directly on Facebook. He usually replies back quickly.

I'm sure someone may buy them. But they are not authentic Star cards, they are junk cards made in 1997. To my knowledge Shop At Home never sold authentic 80s Star basketball.

The set on ebay is likely there for 10k to deceive a buyer thinking it is an original star pack they haven't seen. When in reality, these are made much later for the show to sell and basically are considered a novelty item as they are not authentic, IMO.
