Default What do you do with your main cards?

So I recently got back into busting hobby boxes again and as you all know...that sure takes up space!

What's the best way to offload main cards? I'm talking relatively inexpensive ones, Bowman Chrome, topps Update, Topps Chrome etc.

I know I could complete the set and sell that way but if I just pick up one hobby box or two....I might just throw them away.

Just wondering what everyone's tricks were.

Thanks!

Crap...I figured/knew it had been asked over and over. I did try searching and I appreciate the help, I am a newbie here but not a newb to forums so I should have looked better! I didn't know what to search for!

You can donate them then use it as a tax write off..I found someone who bought all of mine ($5 per 1,000) and paid for shipping. I try to pull the better known players and sell as cheap lots to people who PC that player.

If there is value in the lot, see if a local card shop would be willing to make a trade for a vintage single card or something else of value that isn't moving in their inventory.

I had a collector several years ago buy up a lot of my cheap Griffey cards so that saved myself on shipping costs on eBay. Maybe could have gotten a little more for them but it was nice to send them all off to the same person! Hope this helps you out!
