    Here’s a few of my favorites. Just the tip of the iceberg. Now I’m excited to start going through my stuff one day. It’s been packed away since moving 14 years ago.

    I know I have some Brooklyn dodgers photos, that I know nothing about… but they were my grandfathers. He was good friends with Leo derocher .

    That’s just a common from that set… definetly nothing special. I just love the age of the cards and the era

    Sorry for the Delay in getting back to you, Vilma. Here are my thoughts:

    These are cards you should get graded ASAP:

    1965 Topps Sandy Koufax #300
    1969 Topps Johnny Bench #430
    1972 Topps Hank Aaron #299
    1969 Topps Reggie Jackson #260
    1970 Topps Reggie Jackson #140
    1970 Topps Reggie Jackson #459
    1971 Topps Reggie Jackson #20
    1979 Topps Wayne Gretzky #18 (not O-Pee-Chee)
    1955 Bowman Hank Aaron #179
    1964 Topps Pete Rose #125

    I say this because you have some REAL Gems listed here, and even graded PSA 4 or 5, these can be worth hundreds of dollars. Hank Aaron is just RED hot right now, and That Reggie Jackson Rookie is a Gem. The 1971 cards with the black border are a TOUGH grade, so if it is in top condition, you could get a LOT for it

    For these, it is all about the condition:

    1972 Topps Rod Carew #676
    1970 Topps Ernie Banks #630
    1972 Topps Reggie Jackson #435
    1972 Topps Tom Server #445
    1976 Topps George Brett #19

    They are great cards to collect, don't get me wrong, but unless they grade a PSA 7 at MINIMUM, you may be disappointed with your return.

    Now these intrigue me:

    1980 Topps Rickey Henderson #482 (2x)

    There is only THREE PSA 10 of this card in existence, and the most recent sold for a Quarter Million dollars. If this card grades 8 or higher, you could have some very good money. 7 or less? The market is saturated with those

    1971 Topps Nolan Ryan #513 (graded NM 7) - Last ebay Sale - $343
    1969 Topps Nolan Ryan #533 (graded EX-MT 6) - Last ebay Sale - $376

    I can't help you with these, sorry...

    Carl Yastrzemski signed ball (graded 10 across the board)
    Nolan Ryan signed ball (9 across the board)
    Duke Schneider signed ball + card
    Tom Seaver signed ball

    Get the Mays an the Robinson graded ASAP. Even in poor condition, you are talking hundreds of dollars.

    Top three cards, once again, all about the condition. If you are confident that they would grade a 9 or higher, you could get hundreds for them.

    I ALWAYS loved the 1951 topps set. Do you have any big names in there?

    The Ernie Banks is a really really nice card. Also, the Doc Gooden Traded rookie is a tough find in PSA 10. Could be worth serious money if it is a Gem.

    PSA is still the standard. Unfortunately, they are experiencing a massive backlog, and only have premium services at this time. Once they catch up, they will open up to cheaper services again.
