4. To get top dollar on an item, it has to be “pristine” or museum quality.

Allan Cutrow, a Partner at Mitchell Silberberg & Knupp LLP in Los Angeles who specializes in estate planning for collectors, says “the average good collection is only 10 to 20 percent museum quality. The other 80 percent are a bunch of items that can be difficult to put in place or sell.”

Kishner estimated the worth of his own baseball card collection to be in the tens of thousands of dollars. “But I got an off the cuff reaction of a thousand or two,” he says. “Pristine is truly pristine. To the naked eye I thought these were pretty good.”
