Default 1985 Topps Pop Report

Question for the Pop Guys.


Just got in about 3000 1985 topps card all pack fresh. I wanted to possibly look for 10's of commons with low pops before I sell them.

Is this worth it?

I see some with a 1-4 pop. What would a common be worth as a 10 with a low pop?

Prior sales on COMC:
#6 Pete Rose $26
#308 John Wathan $17
#381 Roy Smith $31
#544 Bruce Kison $17
#565 Kirk Gibson $22
#625 Mark Langston $12
#638 Mike Pagliarulo $29
#775 Mookie Wilson $25

I figure you can look up the previous eBay/auctionhouse sales on PSA's website.

I tried using VCP but these just don't trade. I know the stars, but I'm talking about the scrubs with a POP of 1 or 2.

What would those trade for do you think?

Maybe you need a subscription to worthpoint.com ; I don't have one. I would say your market is pretty small though. There are only 3 people attempting to complete this set on PSA's registry that have over half complete:

Wow roughly 74.47% of the 85's graded belong to Clemens - 21,867, McGuire - 43,423 and Puckett - 6830...

Would this set be worth the expense down the road?

You mean to submit your cards for grading and then sell as a set? No.

Even if PSA does a $5.50 special for modern cards, it would probably take submitting 2-3x the set size of like 800 cards, so let's say 2000 cards at $5.50 plus shipping and you're looking at maybe $12K.

See if you can find out what cards are difficult to find centered or without print marks (like the 1978 Molitor/Whitaker). Those might bring a decent return- if you find one that isn't flawed of course.
