With ebay, you don't mail the merchandise until you have the money in the bank

@edgarblythe,
I may hafta try it again.

my last experience still leaves a bitter aftertaste.

but I have some other intriguing items that might do well there...

@Rockhead,
I would also recommend ebay, like edgar said you don’t ship until you get paid. You can list the bulk of them and put a price you’d like and let them bid on them. Make sure you put online some photo’s and a good description. If you need some help with the photos let me know and I can work on them in photoshop.

@Rockhead,
Ebay might turn out to be the best choice, but to get any kind of price, you know you're going to have to itemize that "big box". I've no idea it would be worth the trouble.

@jcboy,
I really miss photoshop.

it is still loaded on my old sonyy laptop, but it is in keyboard malfunction hell...

I can probably get my kodak to handle the task, if I go that way.

I would like to stumble onto a collector that I can correspond with leading to a sale. without photographing every card. or even most of them.

I doubt they are worth 4 figures, and my time is not unlimited...

@Rockhead,
Do you have any local collectable sports type places nearby or even hobby/collectable stores? There are many where I live. The best I find - are the small locally owned ones. They tend to be more honest or else they wouldn't be in business so long - they tend to have many repeat customers. You can always do a google search and see if there are any near you - and often times you can read reviews about them.

@Rockhead,
Before you think of selling them you need to find out how much they're worth.

@izzythepush,
I've found some really interesting card valuing sites, but I am not ready to spend to see values.

a free site would be cool...

@Rockhead,
Did you try to put the cards descriptions into google with a search term like value added to the search words?

In any case I would hate to put cards up for sale on ebay or anywhere else with no clue that they might be worth.

How about going to a bookstore and see if there is a book on collecting baseball cards that you could look at if the internet let you down?

@BillRM,
mr llib.

I am doing this to help a friend in my "spare" time.

but since you are being so helpful, I feel I should return the favour.

surely there is a program available to the skillful googler that would correct your verb usage for us.

please let us know what you find...

<edit>

hey, you cheated and went back and edited.

see, I knew you had it in ya...
