    I've been thinking of doing the same thing. The shitty thing is, most places only want cards from like...pre-1960.

    There were so many of those damned 80s cards printed, ya know?

    Chances are they are worthless

    Go through them though, you may find a gem

    Look online for prices

    How much did the steroids era hurt the collectibles' market? I mean, who is going to want memorabilia from a period when a lot of guys were cheating and any records achieved are dubious? Only difference between today and then is science has gotten better and only people who get caught are idiots.
