Best way to sell a large lot of caramel cards?

Post by fisherboy7 on Sun May 10, 2009 6:54 pm

I could use a little advice. In an attempt to downsize my collection a bit, I'm considering selling the majority of my caramel card collection. There are 48 cards total, mostly raw, with a fairly broad selection of sets across the spectrum. No major rarities but a bunch of HOFers. Condition is all over the place. Thing is, I don't have the time nor the patience to sell them off individually right now. However, I suppose I might be leaving a significant chunk of $ on the table if I sell them as a lot - but then again, it might be worth it, given the savings in shipping/paypal fees/time.

I guess my options are (and I've made these into a poll):

1. List them as a single lot on the BST here
2. List them on my imageevent site with individual prices
3. List them on ebay as a single lot (I've noticed some of the e card lots on ebay selling for nice prices)
4. Sell the E96's and E92's in two lots, and the rest as a group
5. Consign to an auction house (not sure if my group is worthy?)

Here's a breakdown of what I have:

E90-1 (2 cards) Young portrait and Lajoie
E90-2 (1 card) Leach
E92 (15 cards, all mostly vgex) with Mathewson (lower grade than the others)
E93 (9 cards) w/Waddell and Clarke
E94 (2 cards) with a blazer of a Lobert
E95 (2 cards)
E96 (16 cards) w/Mack, Jennings, Marquard, Baker, Clarke
E101 (1 card) Bender

Here is a LINK to some pics (the cards on the top row are the ones I'm likely keeping). Your suggestions are welcomed and appreciated! righton

I'd say options 1 and 2. If they were mostly commons, I'd say sell as a group but selling HOFers in a group tends to be a serious money losing proposition. If you aren't in a big rush to get money, I'd look into one of the smaller auction houses like Sloate, etc and see what they can do. That route will mean about 3 month wait.

nice cards...I'd say 2 is the most lucrative way...but 1 or 3 will be the quickest. I'd be interested in a few if you sell them on bst...or ebay...but not all of them.

List them on B/S/T individually for decent prices and you will have them sold in 2 days.

decent price= at market or slightly below if you are looking for quick $.

I like Mark's Idea but another option is consigning to an Ebay seller. David Bryan or Just Collect come to mind.

Thanks for the advice guys. I'm planning on setting up a sale page on my imageevent site, and will post something in the BST when it's ready. Seems like a better alternative than ebay.

would getting the more valuable ones slabbed increase your chances of selling and also help increase your $$$ return?
