Default Sealed 1985 Donruss baseball case.

What would be the best method of selling a Sealed 1985 Donruss baseball case?

Hello there,
There is always a lot of action with the modern junk wax on Facebook. If not that then perhaps eBay.

I would say contact one of the guys who does unopened material to get an offer. I was thinking BBCE or Dave and Adams Card World. Both deal in unopened wax and could give you a better offer than eBay

Exactly. This item is hardly junk. Each box appears to sell for $200 dollars or so authenticated by BBCE as case fresh . I would contact them.

Bad advice...unless you just like losing money. BBCE's buy price on a wax case is $1300 ($65/box). You can do much better than that on eBay selling them yourself. Wax boxes seem to be going for $90-$100 on eBay.

Take good pictures of the unopened case to let the buyers know your boxes came from a sealed case and they will bring more money.

I have a regular who pays very nicely for unopened modern and vintage. Be happy to put you in touch with him if you want. Shoot me a message if you're interested.

Your best bet to maximize profit is to send the entire case to bbce to be wrapped and certified unopened. Hopefully it is sealed and they can wrap every box and certify it from s sealed case (FASC). You will get the most for each box because Collectors look for those and will pay a premium.

I don’t deal with unopened boxes, but this seems the best bet. FASC.
I understand the obstacles, just don’t deal with them.
Have them certified as unopened, and Bob is your Uncle.

Best of luck on the resale.

EDIT....and 85 Donruss is not wax junk.
