CardPricer Forums

    I sent you list of my collection 2 weeks ago and you have still not given me a price on it. What is taken you so long? I paid my membership and you claimed in your Features & Benefits....Just select the cards you own and card automatically estimates the total value of your entire collection. I have done eveything you ask and I have had no response. What is going on with you? Why are you putting out all the ads and people are paying for your service and you are not doing what you say> What is the price of my collection? If you have to just put a price down beside the ones that you have...Please I want to know something..........Brenda Spradlin 10/01/08
    Hi Brenda,
    I'm not sure what you mean when you say you sent us a list of your collection. Between your few posts on the site and the emails you have sent us - i do not see anything like that. The site will provide you with valuations if it is a set we publish sales results for. We are always adding more sets to the site, so perhaps you are looking up cards on the price guide that we have not published yet? Beyond that, I am a bit confused by your expectations.

    Hi Brenda,
    You can use our search feature or our browse feature to find cards that you own. If there is a green dollar sign in the price column, then we have published sales results. You can click on the dollar sign or the info button to view our pricing grid. From there, you may use the tabs at the top to change the view and look at different bits of information.

    I have not used this site because I do not understand it. I have tried to, but it is not working for me and you continue to take a membership fee each month even after I ask you to cancel, which I sent you a e-mail over a month ago and again on 12/13/08 you took another fee. So while I have it till 1/12/09 tell me how I can list my cards and show pictures and get a price for them. This site is to complicated to use and it always goes to different info than what you tell me. If I can't get any info this time. I want this membership cancelled when this membership month is up. Do not charge my account again.
    Hi Brenda,
    We have no emails from you on 12/13/08. The last email we have was from September 15th. To cancel your membership, follow the "Edit Membership" link found under the account details section of the dashboard. That will stop the charges to your card.

    I think what everyone is asking is doesn't the website automatically pair a price with a card? I see the dollar sign next to my cards and I can see the price history. But since my collection price stays at zero I'm assuming you have to manually go through the cards and insert a price on the card?

    Hi St. John,
    Have you entered a condition for the cards in your "My collection"? For any authenticated cards in your collection, the site will automatically provide you with a value for that item (provided there have been sales of that card in that condition).

    If your cards are not authenticated, then the site will use your purchase price for that item. We are working on metrics that will allow the site to help you with the valuation of RAW cards based on their condition. At this time, there is no way for us to determine the condition of a raw card when it is sold at auction. If you have any suggestions on that front, we will gladly listen.

    If you have a large amount of cards that you need to update at once, you can use the select all feature at the bottom of each list and then select the edit. This will allow you to make batch changes to your collection.

    For the next few days, we are focused on adding large amounts of sales data to the site. When that is complete, we will start to consider site enhancements and other features.

    Let us know if you have any more questions!

    I don't have any authenticated cards. I also have no purchase price since they are an inheritance. But i do see what you're saying about changing the purchase price and also the batch changes which I found useful.

    I'm guessing I have close to 2,000 cards... I'm green to the baseball card business so unfortunately I don't have any suggestions. On the contrary if you have any suggestions how I can painlessly find a honest value of such a large amount of cards I would appreciate the tip. I don't think it would be practical to take them somewhere to get evaluated? Hopefully there is some kind of system out there for this type of situation. I'm happy with this site (except for this minor snag) and I'd rather not have to register to another to get it straightened out! Thanks!
    Hi StJohn,
    I'll be happy to help you further. Would you be able to give me an idea of the types of cards you have? Who is the manufacturer and what years are they from? I do not need a great deal of information; however, if you can provide me enough that I can determine what you have - I will be able to give you more focused advice.

    I can only realistically give a small idea of what i have. I have six binders with plastic card sheets filled with Topps sets from the years 1980, 1982, 1982, 1983, 1983, 1984. Then I have maybe 100 loose sheets ranging from 1952 reprints to 1987 Topps. And ontop of that i have a big box filled with shoeboxes of loose sets including leer, leaf, and donruss(?) ... I'm a little overwhelmed! haha..
    Hi StJohn!
    I can understand your feelings of being overwhelmed. Here are some "basic" rules of thumb. While there are always expceptions... I think these suggestions will offer you a balance between value and effort.

    Your reprints are have very little value. If you have any authentic cards from the 1950s and 60s, you may have something of value. Outside of that, it does not sound like you are likely to have many items of value in your collection. The exceptions would be cards like Cal Ripken's rookie, Rickey Henderson's rookie card, and the cards of similar star players. There are a few error cards from that era. I would suspect that it is not worth your time to dig them out.

    If you are looking to sell these, I would suggest you list them on eBay either as one big lot or as individual sets. I should tell you that large lots from this era have very little value on the open market. We have seen lots of 10,000 or more card go for between $10 and $15.

    I hope this helps! Let me know if you need anything else.
