Default Eddie Collins T206 Value?

Posted By: ted

So i've got a t206 Collins, not a very rare back or anything....it was actually one of my early t206 purchases which will explain why it is in the condition it is in. 1st, there are some small, but clearly evident creases on the front (which i knew about when i first purchased the card). 2nd, the lower right corner juts out to the right ever so slightly toward the bototm - that's right ... chopped...
So now to the question... I am a collector, i don't buy with the intent to resell, however, i want to upgrade this to an unmodified copy with no creases....and get rid of the current piece to an interested buyer. What sort of value do you think is reasonable for such a card...granted i know i don't have a scan handy, but all i'm looking for is a ball park. And for that matter, if anyone is interested i would gladly move the item to you through my auction house (for protection of you the buyer only).

Thanks guys,
BlackSoxFan

Without seeing the card, I would say that a trimmed Collins (either one) with creases would be worth about $15-25. It's a great pick up for the right person.

Depending on presentation value, it could be worth $25-$35. $40 on a really good day, but in no market that I've ever seen would it be worth $50.

I spent awhile accumulating HOF beaters on ebay, and only was able to get under $20 for lesser HOF players -- the Bobby Wallace's and Jimmy Collins' of the world. Eddie is very popular and would get $30 on an average day in any reasonable condition.
