Collectors Cards

Kitty and I have had boxes of "old" (like 80's and 90's) collectors' cards in the storage shed for years now (got in a bulk deal). My "dream" was to start selling all of this stuff on eBay to make a little money. I quickly realized that with the advent of eBay, the market is flooded with all of this crap. Did I really want to deal with all of the "comic book guys" out there who will debate whether the card is a "good" or just a "fair." Quite frankly, I wasn't even sure what was out there. Much of the stuff was just thrown into boxes. I decided to do a little organization yesterday.

I found a total mixed bag of stuff. Lots of Marvel superheros especially Spiderman. A Star Wars card game like Magic. I even found collectors cards from t.v. shows like The Dukes of Hazard and M*A*S*H. Most of these cards are selling for MAYBE 10 cents a card on eBay. Is it worth messing around with? I think not. I still have boxes and boxes to go through, but if you or your friends have any interest in this stuff, I can send it to you for a nominal fee. I figure my time sorting through all of this crap should be worth a little. So if you are into Spawn or Sandman or any other of the obscure comic heroes out there, drop me a line. I'll post more specific titles once I do some more digging. I'm sure there are a lot of folks who would just die for a complete set of Blair Witch Project cards.
