I no longer deal, but I once did extensively. There are times you just look at a deal and say, " That won't work." Even at 10% of your estimated value if I am a dealer and I have $1000 worth of high end (let's say a Cobb Red background, but if you are trying to boil it down to one or two cards, it's going to be high end and sellable cards or else considerably overpriced) inventory versus a monster box of commons, the fact that you can sell one card versus having to lug around the monster box for years, you'll keep the single card. There is a chance that you might find a dealer who has an expensive but slow selling card he has had in inventory forever that he sees as if he sees as inventory he is going to be buried with that he might trade. You would probably be best off to move them as lots on eBay or BST. Even then it's not going to be easy to get to 40% or book value, IMO. The exception is if you peel out the high numbers. The 1961s and 1966s if in any condition at all will do well. Sadly there's not that much demand for the 1969s, which I think is a fun set. Please note, I am often wrong, but I think you are in a position to either do the work yourself or settle for literally pennies on the dollar.

The 70's are in VG-ex to ex.

The 69's are the same

Every thing in the 60's is VG some better some worse

50's is good some better some worse

Yes not looking for a Cobb or anything in demand. Just 1 card that I can hold on to to make room. Something that is a slow mover for someone else. Where they say hey it might be a 5k card but I've had it forever. And they can make back 2x that on this lot.

That's pretty much what I meant Stephen...

1970s commons in VG-EX are low grade.
As are 1960s commons in only VG or worse...

I honestly think most dealers wouldn't touch it...
but if that's the route you try and go, I wish you the best of luck.

Your best bet is to just sell them in large lots by years and take what you can get. I would be amazed if you could get a $500 card in trade for that many low end commons. Would you even consider trading a $1K card of yours for that pile of low end commons?

I'm not a dealer so prob not. If I was and I had slow moving inventory and the clients that want to set build it would be a no brainer. If I knew I could get .75 a card on average in person it's worth it to me. I just don't have the client base.

I'd prob do 3k trade as a dealer if I knew over 2-3 years I'd triple up in exchange for a card I've been sitting on anyways

If it took 2-3 years, once you factor in your time - assuming you value that...
A dealer wouldn't triple his money... He'd barely break even.

I have them in binders and pages. All they'd have to do is take them and put them on their tables. Nothing to waste time on. They are ready to sell and organized by year.

Look, it's your transaction. Make an offer to a dealer and see. You're getting a lot of responses saying it won't go. You don't need to convince anyone here it will work.

Hey I'm not trying to convince anyone. Just making sure I give all the facts.

How I couldn't get 1000 for 20k in book value does seem off to me though. But hey it's a conversation and opinions and I value everyones
