Default How do you sell thousands of Base Cards?

I have thousands of base cards I do not want, but do not wanna give away either....they are Different brands, sports etc...how does one go about selling thousands of base cards? Is there like a 2 cent per card type value that applies?

TIA

Just look in the B/S/T section. Isn't that what most of those threads are for?

I have the same problem. I have a ton of base that I would basically give away. I'd be happy to sell them at $0.10 each

Well I live in a rural area, nearest neighbor is half mile. I do not see many kids unless it is my nephew and he does not have a desire to collect cards...

Try posting em' up... some people will take them. I've sold 6 teams so far. But honestly, I'm charging like $15 for 500 cards. Factor in that it cost about $8 to ship, about $1 for the box, you'll be lucky to sell them for $0.01 - $0.03 ea. If you are asking $0.05 to $0.10 you'll be grasping at straws.

Oh there is some decent cards i think for someone who knows what they are doing...would not look for any more than 3 cent a card plus shipping costs..there is RG3 strata rc, luck rc + 200 more base from strats for example. and roughyl 300-400 contenders base from tonight...

just do not know if there is a market for blind lots of base, i do not have time to sort them and sell them myself

1. go to Find Live & Online Auctions for Antiques, Art, Cars & More at AuctionZip.com

2. find your nearest auction house

3. take it there

they generally charge 35% commission but on the bright side you wont have base cards taking up room

If you ever sell at card shows you can take like 10 decent cards then get 100 envelopes and put 10 crap base in 90 of them and in 10 of them put the nice cards with 10 crap base and sell the envelopes for like half of whatever the decent card is worth

I sell late 80s and 90s junk for 5 cards for a penny. More modern base...,1 cent a card.
