My son must have ten thousand of those cards in plasticine books. Wonder if keeping them in a shoebox might have been better.
It would probably work out about the same.
I was a serious baseball card collector from about 1958 until about 1962 (ages 10-14), and had a complete set of Topps 1959s (it may still be around, in a box somewhere), which I completed in 1961. I completely lost interest when they started selling complete sets (late 1960s?).
You could probably sell those easily.
I collect non-sports cards, though I have a bunch of those, too.
Fun, funny history stuff. I used and beat up an early Mickey Mantle card on my bicycle spokes with the clothespin...
Little did you know that was like using $100 bills.
