Default Who are some popular players right now?

I know pretty much nothing about Hockey, but I inherited my Dad's card collection. I'm selling stuff on Ebay.

What are some popular players right now?

When it comes to hockey cards, it doesn't get much hotter than Reggie Lemlin!

what years are the cards from? That's a pretty good place to start.

The earliest I have is 1990. So far the latest I've seen is 2011-2012. I'm still going through them and trying to organize them. He didn't keep any record of what he had. My sister may have some of this season's cards.

I don't think I've seen anything from Reggie Lemlin (unless you were being sarcastic).

It's difficult just listing popular players off since base cards of Crosby, Stamkos, Malkin, Toews, Kane, Brodeur, etc. won't get very far.

Main thing you are looking for is Rookie cards and autograph cards.

Let's start with the basics; look for Upper Deck Young Guns (printed on the card) for rookies and we can go from there. Every year since 05-06 at least there's been a desirable rookie card in every year. If your dad had higher end stuff, then we'll have to see some pics or scans to help you wade through it.

I would search ebay completed auctions so you can get price points for yourself and also so you won't get ripped off..

Here's a couple of Rookies I have. My Dad did have a box of just Rookies, but it's probably not all he has.

Brodeur 1990 Score
H. LundQvist Upper Deck
Alexander Frolov various
Jiri Dopita various
S Chistov various
Tim Thomas Crown Royale
Patrice Bergeron Young Guns (I have 2)
Eric Staal
Jason Spezza
Zidlicky
Todd Merchant
Martin Erat
Scott Hartnell
Dan Hamhuis
Jay Bouwmester
Dan Blackburn
Ryan Suter
Milan Hejduk
Rick Nash

That's just a couple. Once I figure out how to post photos I will, haha.

I have a couple on Ebay right now, my name on there is mollyecho. Don't laugh, I probably screwed myself on a lot of them. Trail and error.

I have a Rick Nash Young Guns that as far as I can tell is in mint condition. It's going for anywhere between $170 and $350 on Ebay. Should I get this card graded? It looks like the graded cards are going for more, but I guess that could end up costing me if it's anything less than a 9.0 right?

If I was in your position I probably wouldn't get anything graded. They sell pretty well anyways and you just save yourself the trouble (and money). Let someone who buys it take the risk of grading.

Disregard the prices, my Dad wrote those on there. He always went by Beckett prices.

I need to clean my scanner or replace the toploaders. The cards don't look that bad in person.

You will get hurt price wise listing those sets as auctions starting at .99, and even more so when you offer free shipping. You are losing money after shipping and ebay fees. I would consider listing them as buy it now auctions.

Yeah, I screwed up listing the sets that low. How do I go about pricing sets?

I have a Beckett. I've been looking on Ebay, but there aren't many sets being sold.

You have a few cards I can use up for auction. Hope I win some of them. Can't wait to see what else you end up putting up for bid.
