I am looking into ridding my collection of all post-war cards. My problem is that I have never been very good at pricing the cards to sell. Any of the veteran collectors out there interested in looking at scans and working with me to help sell these? I can break everything up or sell as a whole. Not sure. Anyone willing to help out?
Thanks
P.S. - the following is just some examples of cards that I have to get rid of.

I did the same thing recently. I put them on ebay and let 'em ride. Overall I did ok but there is a risk of no one bidding what they are worth.....I just didn't care to deal with it. I also noticed that folks that buy this newer stuff aren't as reliable as folks that buy in our space......just my observation.....good luck

That post-war cards do not sell for "what they are worth?" It seems that pre-war cards generally sell much better than post-war. Do you think that many collectors are leaving the post-war market or is there just too many cards out there for the demand which makes the prices lower unless you have high grade examples?

plus if you have a Tony Perez rookie and you sell it on ebay you risk getting very strange feedback,just ask Leon


I think the prices are pretty consistant on ebay for 50s stuff.If you look back thru completed auctions you should be able to find something in the same or similar grade and youll get a good idea of what you should get.Dont sell them all as one big group,ive made that mistake before.

when my auctions begin so that I can have the attention of the few post-war collectors that lurk here from time to time. Thanks all for the help.

Not fully true Julie at all... The regional food and Pacific coast league cards( 1940's - early 1960's) have INCRERASED by DOUBLE in some areas... In fact, these cards are in many ways are harder to find then turn of the century cards.. so your statement that post WWII cards has dropped is NOT true... Now..if you ment TOPPS and BOWMAN.... or main stream cards yes I agree..

Best

I love the ones I own but I don't buy high grade specimens unless at a real bargain price and I collect on a very limited budget because these cards are readily found and can be obtained for very little money in lower grades. For example, I am working a 1953 Bowman set in low grade which I intend to finish for under $10 per card. I am certain I will make huge inroads in the set at some of the bigger shows at the price levels I want to spend because the bargain bins are full of them.

I think the rocket scientists who paid the big bucks for the high grade cards that drove the postwar market are realizing that an 8 or 9 designation is nothing special and isn't likely to advance in price much over time. I liquidated my 8 and 9 collection some time ago when it became apparent to me that I would be as happy with a 6 or 7 and the cash in prewar cards.

SEE FIRST POST! I was, of course, referring to Toppps and Bowman...

In fact, they're all Topps.

I am putting a couple things on at a time. The first two are on now. You can find them under my name:
trib01

Thanks for all the advice everyone. I think it is time to release them to the public so that I can start purchasing my new love - pre-war cards!
My cards are not in the best condition but I'm sure someone out there will love them as much as I have.
