Manny—the HOF cards pictured would most likely be sold in LOTG as single card lots. Commons, depending on condition, might be aggregated; I would trust Al to figure out how to maximize the consignor’s realization. This is the reason I suggested LOTG, rather than a big auction house like Heritage. If I had a Baltimore News Ruth or a Cobb with a Cobb back I would choose the boys in Dallas. For this type of material I would go with Al. To advise otherwise I believe is unwise.

Generally speaking, you can pick which 2 of these matter the most to you to decide how to sell: money, your effort to sell, or how quickly you receive the money.

Self Selling (BST) - high $, high effort, quick payment
Auction House - middle/high $, little effort, slowest payment
Dealer - least $, little effort, quick payment

Based on what we can see, most of these cards aren't going to sell in individual lots in REA or Heritage, but a smaller auction house such as LOTG, brockelmanauctions.com, Birmingham Auctions, etc will list cards that will sell for $50-100 individually. Plus giving a card like the green Cobb to one of these auction houses will make it more of a featured item rather than mixed in with 50 other identical cards. Anything $25 and under he's going to spend a ton of time and effort trying to move individually by himself.

You have some cards where the back will make a huge difference as to the card's value. If there are any with rare backs, you have more value than can be seen from the scan of the front. If you have cards that have writing on the back, glue stains, etc., then that is detrimental to value.

you will receive many offers from people here to buy your cards. proceed with caution. there are people here who would knock their mom over in a race to make a buck. if you don't know what your cards are worth, do not rely on an interested buyer to learn. as others have suggested consult a full time auction house -- not one who does it as a sideline or a hobby.

You could search completed Ebay auctions to get an idea on what they go for on some of them.

Your dad had an eye for condition. These are really nice looking cards. I think keeping it simple and taking your time (unless you need a quick turnaround) will serve you best. Most important to find out what you have first. If you can get good scans of the front and backs to share then you'll find out quickly if there are any rare combos or series. There are some very trustworthy and genuine members here that you should listen to, but be cautious and do some of your own research before selling or consigning. Good luck.

There's also an option lower down on the left of an eBay page to see "sold items," which should help too. I agree to be wary of offers before you know exactly what you have.

Thank you everybody for all the replies advice and insight. Im thinking no matter what direction I go I will be picking up a good scanner and learning how to unscrew these cards carefully. I might build an album on some of the collection so I have good quality photos no matter what route I go. Psa grading seems like a good thing vs. ungraded from the replies I'm seeing. I'm a really young man so I guess the biggest thing is patience to do what's right for the old man and myself.

As most have suggested I have already picked some nice yankees for my own keeping. One side question I have. Are the 50s 60s 70s worth grading too ? Thank you everyone I appreciate the time you guys put in to learn and be involved in collecting.

It is really going to depend on the condition. A 60's Mays that is only going to get a 3 likely isn't worth it, but if it is going to get a 7 or 8, it almost certainly is worth it. However, be prepared, most people who are not familiar with grading will think they have an 8 or 9 and be shocked when it comes back a 5. Again, a good scan will really help us give you better feedback.
