Now that you have grown a little older and you want to try and buy a car or a present for your girlfriend, but you just do not have the money. Well, here are some helpful hints on how to get rid of some of those old baseball cards.
-Try having your own card show. No mattter where you live, kids will always be interested in baseball cards. On a weekend, setup a stand for to display your cards and have a sale. Pass out flyers in the neighborhood so the other kids will know about it. If your prices are competitive with the card store prices, then the kids will buy from you because you are saving them the trouble of going all the way to the card store.
-You can also try to sell your cards to a dealer. A card dealer will almost always buy your cards, but he will have to buy them at a discounted price because he must make a profit off of them. This is a good idea if you are trying to get rid of them fast and need immediate cash.

Trading is a great way to get rid of cards you do not want anymore and a chance to receive something that you would not otherwise be able to purchase.
-One other way is to sell your cards at a large card show. Card shows are very popular and occur pretty frequently. When you go to a card show there are many dealers there all at once, so you can shop the cards that you want to sell around and make sure that you are getting the best price possible.
