Did you post that on Beckett as well. I was reading that thread earlier. Everyone has an idea, and everyone is correct so the real answer is however you are most comfortable.

And one of the answers was bulk out the lesser material and, as you pointed out, take your time with the better and cooler items.

But you need to do whatever you are comfortable with.

I had the same type of thing. After weeding and weeding and weeding I came up with exactly ONE card worth grading. An 89 ud griffey jr which was a 9/10 candidate. I sold the rest for what I had paid for it . In hindsight, it was a terrible idea and a total waste of time. Though it was just my experience!

Hey no I didn't post this on Beckett. Just got it last night. I was wondering if I should just chuck commons or make Team piles. Stuff like that.

Unless they are full sets just go through and pull the star cards and throw away/give away the rest.

Those type of lots are fun to go through as a collector but $ wise as a dealer for resale they are almost completely worthless if you consider your time sorting them worth anything.

1) Take out the graded cards and anything with a sale value of $2 or more.
2) Donation of remainder to Goodwill and tax writeoff, presuming you itemize. Of course, this year they're doubling the standard deduction, so you would need a big mortgage to get anything back from the Feds.

Take 30 minutes and skim through my blog for key or harder to find variations and error cards. Pull out any you find before trashing/donating/selling the rest of the bulk.

Just a starting point, there are plenty more (genuinely) rare items to be found in the junk era stuff.

Save the 70's and graded and take your time with them. Pull out 80's and 90's rookies and error cards, gradable stuff and such, sell unopened sets in bulk if any and Craig's list the remainder commons/junk or sell to a flea market vendor, or donate...there are guys on Craig's list who just want 80's and up commons, some I have told me they sell them to re-packagers for stuff you see in Target or Walmart...
