Anyone watch Pickers this week? Frank ended up buying some bulk baseball cards in the latest episode. They didn't show them much, but it looked to be a mixed group of stuff from the 80's and some random 50's and 60's. They were 5000 ct boxes... or at least that's the one he picked up. He offered the guy $100 a box for a few. I'd assume that he paid way to much.

I wish they would have shown more, but I get that it's not as good of TV as when they have something really cool. wouldn't have been too entertaining watching him sit there and sort cards. lol I'm guessing he'll lose money on them... from my experience at buying bulk cards. Plus I doubt he has too many connections to sell cards.

Have you watched Ball Boys on ABC at all yet? I haven't seen it, but I'm looking forward to watching an episode or two.

i saw an episode of Auction Kings were a seller wanted to auction ALOT of baseball cards.. most from the 80's .. they got an expert to ah, here's the video, go check it :)

the expert valued it from 200 to 30 000.. i reckon the seller went through it all, picked out the great cards, and sold them seperatley

I remember seeing that episode of auction kings. I was amused that he talked like there would be some huge find in that group. On pickers, they of course mentioned that the Wagner was the most valuable baseball card.

Typically if cards are packaged like this it's 1980s and 1990s junk.
