Now we get to the part where I make my money back on the garage sale purchase. My cost was only $25 so I should make that back at least 8 times over. Based on Ebay sales, I think I can make somewhere around $100 or more on the lot of 1986 Fleer basketball cards from the little box.
I'm not really looking to trade yet, but if anyone wants to buy any of this stuff I'll give you first crack before I list stuff on Ebay. After the smoke settles and I've sold off what I can, I'll trade the rest if anyone is interested.
I'm not going to spend a lot of time describing this stuff. It's just a couple of the singles I pulled out plus some of the better binder pages. Let's get to it.
I found this 1986 Fleer Michael Jordan Sticker in one of the tubs in this screwdown holder. I should be able to turn that around. The scanner didn't like the thickness of the holder and the holder is all scratched up. I don't know the condition of the card because it's hard to tell with the condition of the holder.
These next two stickers were in top loaders. Akeem is swatting away Magic's shot. That's a great photo.
These stickers seem to sell pretty good. I may put some of them with the lot of cards to sell.
There are two dog hairs on this scan of Larry Bird. I've debated getting some of these graded because a decent grade sells pretty high, but it costs a fortune to get cards graded.
Jon over at Community Gum was kind enough to let me know that some of the basketball inserts are pretty valuable so it looks like I need to do a little research. I know that '86 Wilkins is a good one.
The Olajuwon page had another one of those stickers.
This is a great Celtics page. You know, if you're a Celtics fan.
That Karl Malone from '86 is another great find.
The '86 Ewing sells good, but doesn't bring as much as Malone.
Here we have another Larry Bird.
Lakers and Pistons.
I was disappointed not to find a 1986 Fleer Michael Jordan rookie. That disappointment was tempered by the other great cards that turned up, including the 2nd Jordan Sticker.
That's about it for now. Someone talk me off the ledge. I just looked up the price for PSA Grading and I'm considering it. I don't think my wife would be too happy with that plan.
