Posted By: <b>Brian</b><p>what would the value of a full 52 card deck be worth? would it be just the book value of $10 per card x 52.. or would there be a premium for a complete deck with box?<br><br>thanks

The recent memorabilia and other non pre war baseball threads included....(including me if I do any <img src="/images/happy.gif" alt="happy.gif">)....best regards

Posted By: <b>Jerry</b><p>I bought a Mint sealed deck years ago at an Estate sale for 10.00 and sold it to a dealer on Ebay for 700.00 and some change. I'm sure he broke it up and sold the cards individually but haven't tracked high grade individuals<br>Hope this helps some

Posted By: <b>Matt</b><p>SCD prices a sealed deck differently then a loose card. I think they say $60 for a Ruth deck.

Posted By: <b>davidcycleback</b><p>I would think that $40 would be a good deal. If each card resold for only $1, you'd make a profit.

Posted By: <b>Dan Bretta</b><p>I picked up a Wagner deck a couple of years ago at an antique show for $20...I sold it complete on ebay and I think I got about $50.

Posted By: <b>dstudeba</b><p>Here was an example on eBay that ended early. Maybe you can contact the seller and find out what their offers were and price it accordingly.<br><br><br><br><a href="http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&amp;rd=1&amp;item=200270580921&amp;ssPa geName=STRK:MEWA:IT&amp;ih=010" rel="nofollow">Brown &amp; Bigelow full Babe Ruth deck</a>
