Marking prices at Card Shows
So you guys that set up at shows, how do you generally mark prices on your cards? What do you have in boxes? $1? $.50? And the cards you keep in your display cases, do you mark them or just name prices when people ask? Just wondering how everyone else operates.Collecting everything Jake Locker.

I think all collectors like a nice $5 box with a few good deals in there hiding :) I recommend doing that.

I'd be looking for the cheap stuff (.25, .50, 1.00) but for sure even if I were looking for higher end cards if your stuff isn't priced I won't be stopping at your table. Judging from the amount of unpriced stuff I see at shows I must be in the minority though.Steve Schindler
Who cares what others think of your collection, you should be collecting for yourself and not them.

What do you use to mark it? A price gun? Sticker?Collecting everything Jake Locker.

I used to do card shows back in 1998-2003, I used a price gun and stickers.
Basically anything above $10-20 in value went in the showcases.
Most of the rest of the tables were filled with singles for $1-5 each.
I also had some insert and base sets in boxes or team bags, some plastic boxes filled with inserts and a couple big boxes with base.. I didn't really have set prices for them.
