Help!!

Anyone collect cards today?? I used to with my son in his youth and have thousands of Baseball, Basketball, and Football cards stored away.
That was in the 80's and early 90's. It was a very popular time for that.
Have some Bonds roockies included. Used to have some value, not so sure today.

I'm interested in getting Pirate cards from today but not interested in spending my whole retirement check on them. I think I want a team set of this year (even though they are gone to other teams now) and in future years, and minor league sets starting now from A,AA,and AAA.

Anyone got advise on where and how. And how to get a good price??

Go to Ebay.

Search "Pittsburgh Pirates 2009" or whatever, and you can find some very nice stuff at YOUR prices!

It's a shame what has happened to tbe Bonds Rookies... I probably have 5000 Bonds Rookies cards and a few years back I was selling them for from $15-50, depending whether it was topps, donruss, fleer, or some small collectible sets. Today, you can't get squat for them!

Yeah hang onto your cards for now. I have alot of cards that i have collected over the years from all sports and the price has gone rock bottom on them, you can only hold onto them and hope they shoot back up sometime.

I'm no Rockefeller, but do you really need to get much lower than $10 to make the deal a go? If you do perhaps baseball cards shouldn't be at the top of your acquisition list. They can be bought at PNC as well saving shipping costs.

Well, yeah. You can get a Pirate team set on Ebay for a buck...so why spend 10?
