Default Promo cards

I had a card shop from 85 through 95. during this time card companies mainly the 90s. sent me promo cards. I kept these cards today I found some off them. they have been touched once from the box to the vinyl. today I wish I didn't open them. but I think I had to. really don't remember. I never open packs so I guess I had to.
if I was to grade these cards they would be high 8s easy maybe some 10s?. never had much luck with grading cards. are these cards worth grading?.

I would check pricing on eBay. Dealers usually sold them right away, so they usually aren't rare on the market.

I once had a license with a card manufacturer and would get all sorts of funky promos, including stuffed animals and advertising posters (which were cool).

Default posters.

yea for each card I have the posters. foldouts and stuff that goes with the set. showing the cards that you could get from the box. I got 3 large tubs of these. they took up to much space. I liked them so I just saved them.

I wouldn't grade these cards unless they are strongly collected players with PSA Set Registries.
Some of these sell well on COMC, but you still have to look all of them up separately to see what others are selling them for before you mail them.

A bunch of player collectors collect the cards raw, or have their grader of choice (all PSA or all BGS) that it's probably better to let them grade the cards once they've bought them. Plus, neither company is offering good bulk specials at this point.

If you have any promo cards for the 1960 Leaf set they are definitely worth grading

I collected Topps promo cards up through 1994. Pre 1967 they were in the form of 3 card Salesman Samples. Have not kept track of them since 94

Also did all the promo cards for the Sporting News/ Worldwide/ Megacards Conlon sets.

If you are planning to part with them, you will probably find some pieces do extremely well and others do poorly. The cards themselves tended to reach the collecting world more often than the literature, posters and display pieces did, so that is where you might have some real interesting pieces.

A lot of collectors will buy them if their favorite player is featured. For example, I collect Steve Garvey and buy pieces that feature him in picture form, regardless of how small or if partially obscured. I am not aware of a lot of newer promo material that featured him, but at least one Topps product had a poster and window cling that featured his rookie card, so I added it to my collection. Depending on who is featured, sometimes you'll get a real nice bidding war over harder to find pieces.

Collectors who collect a specific player need them for their PSA Master Set. Many of these promos have not been graded or only a few have . Send them in a bulk rate special $ 7 each and then sell for $ 20 + on ebay. Most will be 9's or 10's. If only a few are graded, demand will exceed supply for a specific player ie) Griffey, Jeter etc.
