My Uncle Gave me some free hockey cards....Not what I expected!
So earlier today an uncle of mine needed help to move some heavy machines into his van. After the move he told me he had some cards that he bought from some person (I already knew this was going to be bad) for 500$. Of course in the back of my mind my initial thought is 90's pro-set and so on. He gave them to me as they were taking space up at his house........which now takes up space in my room........ Anyways I snapped a quick pick of what he did gave:
Yeah that's a the 90's stuff alright. For the record I started collecting around 03-04 so I have no idea if these "complete/near complete sets" are worth anything. Here is the breakdown of what there is:
77-78 O Pee Chee complete Set
82-83 O Pee Chee Near Complete Set
87-88 O Pee Chee Complete Set
89-90 O Pee Chee Complete Set
90-91 Upper Deck Complete Set
90-91 O Pee Chee Complete Set
91-92 Score Near Complete Set
91-92 O Pee Chee Complete Set
Esso NHL Mini cards
Now his storage problem is my storage problem. Thanks for the look!

Off the bat there doesn't seem to be $500 in resale value there, but it sort of depends on the condition of the cards and which players are missing. Still, it should make for a fun and perhaps even adventurous time to dig through those piles of cards and discover all the different photos, stats, player information and such. I personally enjoy the goalie masks (no surprise here, haha), so have fun with the cards.

There's a few rookies and star cards in those sets that if the condition is mint+ could fetch some good coin. Not $500 worth but definitely not a wash. Condition is everything with these.
