Question Any MTG Experts? Need pricing help.

Going through some drawers the other day and came across a decent sized stack of MTG cards that I forgot I had. There are 173 cards (50 of them are land) and if I had to guess on a date for them, I would say they were from the late 90s. I have no need for them so I'd like to move them.

I have two problems, I don't even know what to ask and I'm not real sure what series they were from. I have a box that was with them that says "Tempest" so I'm guessing some are from that series. There seem to be a mix of series since I have some cards with each of the following symbols: hammer, circle with the middle filled in, gate, bridge (I have one card that has a gold bridge and a couple with silver bridges), and a thundercloud.

Anyone able to help?

Also, if someone would like these, shoot me a PM and let me know. I'm just really looking for a fair offer on then since I don't need/want them anymore.

Hammer should be antiquities. Can you post some scans.

Here's a link to help you tell what the sets are:

Essential Magic - Cardsets

These are my guesses as to what they are.

I think the hammer is Urza's Legacy

The thundercloud is definately Tempest. (Let me know what you have out of this set as I have a nearly complete set, just missing some of the rarer cards of course.)

Bridge is Exodus

Gate is Stronghold

As for the circle...just a guess, but I think that is probably Portal...but I'd have to see scans to be sure.

I usually use Essentialmagic.com to look up prices as it gives an estimated e-bay price on most of my cards.

Also...haven't forgotten about the Morneau cards I have...just haven't had a chance to scan them. I'll get that done as soon as I can.

I'll get some good scans of the symbols and get them up after dinner and getting the baby to bed.

The golds are rares and the silvers are uncommons. Those are generally going to hold a higher value than the black symbols. Post scans/names of those cards and what set they come from and that might get you a better idea of their value. You could pick up a Scrye (sp?) to find the values, but I think they are essentially like a Beckett (useless for real value).

Yeah..what he said. Hehehe. I figured you were talking about Portal before, but I couldn't be 100% sure.

Mmmm..Arabian Nights. One of my favorite/weird cards comes out of that set.
