    Anybody on OSA know what to do with 4000+ cards my son collected as a kid? Most are in plastic sleeved books. From 1985-1990 so far. He says throw them away. I'm not doing that. Most sell for $1 on Ebay.

    Sell on Ebay
    Take to card shop(if any shops around)
    Give to Goodwill
    Craigslist

    Depends upon condition, subject, completeness of groups and rarety. Are any of them graded in a hard plastic enclosure or do they look like they have been clothespinned onto a bike frame for a motocross?

    Majority are in plastic soft sleeve notebook. Each page holds 9 per side. I would say they just like new condition. Three boxes are opened, not sealed, which hurts value.

    The Junk wax era is considered 87-94 so there probably isn't a ton of value in them maybe a few finds though. You just gotta spend the time looking. https://www.blowoutforums.com/ is the best forum for cards. Rookies are where the most money is. I got out of cards back in the late 80s. Then started messing with Soccer Cards a couple years ago. The card market has been explosive during covid. I started collecting soccer a couple years ago and stopped last summer. I sold about 15 cards this year and it paid for everything I bought in that 18 month period. I had some cards going for 10x what they did before covid.

    As for getting rid of stuff. You can donate to childrens hospitals and other places. Check out that forum. Those guys will be able to tell you what to look for in those years or where to sell it at.

    Thanks for your response. I thought about taking out the rookie cards and donating to a Childrens Hospital. Prolly what I will do, not a lot of value. I will ask him again before I donate.

    I checked that website out, it's a busy site! Lots of new acronyms and phrases those guys use, I don't know what they are talking about.
    I too have some cards I want to let go and found a card show this weekend at the Holiday Inn in OKC. Do you think it would be worth the trip to haul some of my complete year sets up there to try to sell?

    @EKing No idea I haven't been to show since I was a kid. Most everything now is done via Ebay, Instagram, Facebook and the forum I listed. Only one or two cards stores in Tulsa and OKC that I know of.

    I should tell the story of how I traded half my collection for a 64 Pete Rose and then left it on the top of my dads car as we left the card show
