You guys seem to know your stuff. Anyone want to hazard a guess what this stuff might be worth?

Worst possible years for hockey cards are 1990-91, 1991-92.   That is when they ran the presses not seen since the days of early 1920's Germany printing worthless money.

The bubble for sporting cards burst soon after 1992.   

 

Basically the cards you have are worthless because they printed too many of them  Plus there are no valuable rookie cards.   The sport card somewhat recovered in the mid and late 1990's when the insert craze started.  The only valuable cards now worth anything are the inserted jersey, memorabilia,  and autographed cards.   Basic or common cards have little valuable then and now.

 

Specifically, no dealer is going to buy what you have.   Maybe you could find a buyer online for them.  I've seen a box of Score 1990  go for less than $10 on eBay.

Yeah that's what I figured. The rest of the collection is a little more impressive. There's more but this is most of the good stuff. Sadly most of the 80-81, 81-82 isn't near mint.

I recognise the 82 cards.

 

I have most of that season. Not in great shape.

 

We were poor when we moved from England in 82. I got into hockey right away. With my $0.25 a week allowance I would buy a pack of hockey cards. I then would bet them in a card game we used to play at elementary school. Anyone else play the game where you set up cards, consisting of equal players cards, leaning against a wall and little card houses? Then you take turns throwing ( flicking) your cards to knock them down. The person that knocks down the last upright card wins them all! including the ones thrown. I was very good at the game and won a lot. However the nature of it (throwing) would obviously lead to damaged cards.

Yeah I remember playing 'knock downs'. You'd set up like 5 cards leaning against a wall. Then you'd take turns flicking cards at them from a distance. When you knocked one down you'd collect all the cards that had been flicked up to that point. Excluding the original ones still against the wall. We even had a bizarre rule called "Elephant Jumps" where you could take one standing leap forward towards the wall, to get closer. And yes, it beat the crap out of the cards. The beat up ones were useless as they'd fly all crooked. You might as well of just scrunched them up and threw them at the pile. lol

 

I have a fond memory of a kid having a melt down because he realized he accidentally flicked all his Gretzky's. Looking back it was just gambling. I am kinda surprised they let us do that but times were different back then.

The only card worth anything out of those boxes of Score is the Martin Brodeur rookie card.

I went through my cards today, have a few that are worth something? 

 

Lemieux, Roy, Robitaille, Yzerman rookies all in great condition. 

 

Jordan and Shaquille rookies from basketball in great condition. 

 

Lots of other 80's cards plus tons of meh 90's cards. Lots of Bure cards. 

 

For grading, what's the best option to get that done?

Made a few orders after Christmas and I'm down to needing 17 players who have a card (or stamp) as a Canuck (by my count).  I reorganized the binder to regular season + playoffs games played and that shifted things a little.

Page 1 will obviously contain the "Mt. Rushmore" of Canucks longevity.  Ohlund brings up the rear with 822 games played.  And still love that picture of Naslund.

Spoiler

1646826243_page1.thumb.jpg.f04e802138e277b1701c7ead9c06e3d3.jpg

Despite all his injuries, Sami Salo still played enough games in a Canuck jersey to get on page 2.

Spoiler

1914505604_page2.thumb.jpg.d36b9366d7c3ad19a40a7ba091dfcb3c.jpg

 

I guess Tanev won't be climbing up the binder anymore.  Love this picture of McLean.

Spoiler

1527051669_page3.thumb.jpg.a4dde1c34f280593473119ed3de162ee.jpg

 

Page 4 contains Bo, for now, if he stays healthy, he'll move up to page 3 by the end of the year.  Might have to look for a replacement for Murzyn eventually.  Of all the sets out there, Score 91 is probably one of my least favourites (don't like early 90s Bowman either).

Spoiler

1730018963_page4.thumb.jpg.6f626903d639c622e8fcbc7c99f5d23a.jpg

 

Page 5 features players throughout Canuck history, although the 2000s would probably prefer a more iconic representative than Baron :P

Spoiler

283010132_page5.thumb.jpg.e5c76383e7f145e8f9c67e7d65e9e790.jpg

 

I'll post more as my orders come in and pages get filled.  Most of the 17 players remaining are going to be tough to get, but it has been fun tracking down the first 428!

Page 6 features a young Brent Sopel along with Brashear and Sundstrom apparently warming up in the same way.

Spoiler

I was too young to watch Ron Sedlbauer play, but he seems to be putting in an effort he was known for in his card.

Spoiler

That OPC design on the Rich Sutter card is so late 80s, but I still have a soft spot for it.  Unlike the design on Monahan's card, very blah

Spoiler

1594289820_page8.thumb.jpg.838e88f061038797a9f0c896e49d6ea6.jpg

 

Some tough players to play against on page 9...and Ben Hutton

Spoiler

683593187_page9.thumb.jpg.fc92889a2f753556fa54d3644ca7348e.jpg

 

It amuses me that Loui Eriksson and Brandon Sutter are tied to the same page as Jim Benning for the moment.  Part of me hopes it stays that way for Loui Eriksson at least because that'll mean he's done to his last 7 games as a Canuck.

Spoiler

1415490570_page10.thumb.jpg.ea3f27d1c95c8730542209cea053accf.jpg

 

I'll post the next 5 pages once my Michel Petit card arrives.  For the amount of time he was with the Canucks, he sure didn't get many cards as one.

Should be getting the last few cards for the full Timmies base set in the next couple days (thanks eBay). Also pulled my first auto the other day.... half decent player to get one from (excuse the light glare)

My wife’s reaction to my reaction opening that card was, “you look and sound like a teenage girl who just got asked on her first date.”

 

I’d like to say she was wrong.....but I’d be lying lol.

Have my entire 82 opc collection for sale on eBay, via comc.  Mostly psa 10s.  

I am pleased how well they are selling had over 200 commons, going for $20-$30 each.

Double what they'd sell for last year.

 

Only problem is cards I want to buy have also doubled.  

Tried to get a pair of Dahlin psa 10 RC from young guns 2018.  

They were going from $70-$100 all fall.  Both today went for $170+ US$
