appraisal of cards
I recently dug up a set of cards in a box while going through the garage from the 75-76 season and would like some help on finding out their value.
any advice on a way to do this quickly. I don't want to have to search for each card individually. are there any sites that will tell you if I scan in a photo of the cards.

If you have a card from the set, tell me the # of the card and the player on it, and i can look it up to find the set for you.

here's a few pics of some of the cards. these older ones aren't in a folder with plastic holders , so I just took a few quick shots.
I'm going to put the cards in a binder when I have some time and put them all up so I can get some opinions on their value.
a friend of mine got taken advantage of by a dealer once and that made me untrusting of peoples appraisals when they have a store. That's why the cards were just tucked away and forgotten for the last 30 yrs.
here's the teaser.
as you can see , the checklist has been checked , so I know that takes down the value. but I was a kid when they were collected.Who knew I'd be trying to sell them 30 yrs later.

the good news and the bad news. Well it looks like they are the 1975-1976 OPC cards. The whole set has a high book value of $40 but the two top cards book that alone one reason it better to unload cards individually etc. As the Ken Dryden books like $20 and the Bobby Orr (normal card not his other cards think he has a few) books like $30. So there are a few cards in that set that book in double digits. But not big rookies that year as the low value. The team Checklist I think book 2 to 4 dollars.

hi, thanks for the response.
are those the only two worth mentioning?
I guess I'll just post pics of them and see what kind of response I get.

The cards shown are from 2 different years . I can't see the first scan but the seals card is from OPC 75-76 and the Rod Seiling and potvin with the green backs are from 76-77. I have some 75-76 wants if they are for trade.
