Boy, those are some vivid looking colors on that '14 CJ McGraw. Amazing looking condition most of these are in - still can't tell if real or not on some....

Because maybe, just maybe, the hobby extends far beyond the 54 board!!! 2 auction houses were mentioned in 13 pages (REA & LOTG) and I donít see Heritage, MLI, Goldin, PWCC, SCP, Huggins & Scott, Probstein, etc. hurting because their names were not mentioned.

Maybe, just maybe, you shouldnít take things so literally. Obviously PWCC has consignors that arenít on this board. My bigger point is that there are a ton of guys on here that use PWCC, but wonít recommend it aloud for some reason. I found it interesting that a company that does so much volume, and is such a big player in the market would only get one mention. Maybe it was just me who thought that PWCC was a pretty easy choice for someone in his position. Or maybe Iím the only one who voiced it. I donít know, but Iím not really sure what your problem is with my comment.

Orlando, I don't have an issue with PWCC as a company, however, the reason I would not recommend PWCC in this situation is that the collection as a whole is not made up of higher end, $100+ cards. In this case, the OP will need to know what cards to send to PWCC, a knowledge that he does not seem to have. Sending groups of 50's and 60's commons or semi-stars to PWCC generally isn't practical unless they are coming back 8's, 9's and 10's, and even then, it may not be worth it. In this case, the OP really needs someone to sit down with him and walk him through what he has and the best way to split it up. I doubt PWCC is going to take the time to do that with the whole collection. In addition, if you take the keys of the collection out, I'd imagine very few auction houses would want to deal with just raw partial sets from the 50's and 60's so you'll lose their interest as well.

PWCC would be a fine choice for someone who is knowledgeable about the hobby or already has their cards graded.

For a novice collector with raw cards, with some being lower value, I think they would get better guidance and overall service from an auction house compared to a high volume eBay seller like PWCC. Auction houses are more accustomed to holding a seller's hand during the process. That is the reason why I did not mention PWCC in my initial advice.

Thanks for stopping in. If you want help judging what you have I would be happy to help. This is going to require some time. If you want to bring in cards we can arrange a time - but I would not recommend bringing them here in summer. Especially for some of the high quality stuff here. Way too busy any too many people around for me to dedicate the appropriate amount of time and attention to it. Any of the other 9 months are fine. I am in Albany usually at least once a month and can meet you there if you would like. See you on the next trip.

Ill be down again to visit Copperstown with or without the cards most likely this summer! Such an awesome place.

Adding a few more photos (still shitty sorry) Going to be continuing to take better photos as I transfer the cards, Ive been very busy at work and doing projects around my house, but I will continue to try to update when I can, thank you guys.

Of course I haven't examined every card in detail, but overall these give me the impression of being authentic. Just seems like a slightly random collection that a father would have, with organic and varying states of wear.

For the record I always recommend companies who advertise on Net54 and support us. PWCC and LOTG are 2 great ones and would do very well with this stuff. I just hope he picks a good advertiser here.

And to the OP I am here to help, in any way I can, if you need it. Good luck!!

Goobers was a high end dealer and sometimes auction house in the late 1980's to early 1990's. San Francisco area father and son company.
