Default Stupid question involving useless cards-

Every one knows that cards from the late 80s 90s and early 00s are worthless and better to keep a fire. Anything good from 70's or even early 80s?


found a 18 gallon bin full of thousands of cards from my brother. all in protectors.

Good how?

Good as in well-designed cards with lots of visual appeal? Yes.

Good as in cards worth more than $100? For the most part no...

Late 70s and 80s have plenty of good stuff in the right condition, Ripken, Gwynn, Henderson, Griffey. 87-92 is pretty rough, but 90s inserts can fetch a premium. Early 2000s have some good stuff too.

I was definitely looking into team lots thanks, and definitely player specifics. It was a bit before my time so I don't know all the great players but I can definitely research. I appreciate all the comments. Gotta look through it all.

How many cards we talking and early 80's or late 80's make a difference also IMO

Maybe you haven't had much of a chance to look at mid to late 90's inserts and the prices they bring. Certainly not worhtless.

While they may not have much value there are plenty of people that collect them. I have tons of nickel cards in 10 cent top loaders. I just like nice cards and value is secondary.
