I used to play, a long time ago, before I discovered beer and women and I have a mess of cards spanning Revised Edition through Visions...are the cards worth anything, at all, or is it best to just show them my old rubbermaid garbage can?

I sold a Portal card for $40 two weeks ago.

It all depends on what cards you have. The Black Lotus card can go for thousands of dollars.

That card was sick in price back when I still played! Unfortunately, I was never lucky enough to nail down one of those suckers.

You just ebay it or go to a dealer?

Sold it here. It was one of the rarest cards though. That was on the high end of the entire Portal series. I think there is only one other card worth more. So you have to do your research and get the values. If you don't have any valuable ones, then just chuck them. Otherwise, you'll be selling the cards for a penny and $4 in shipping charges just to be competitive.

That works, I'll just have to run through them and itemize what I got. I still have a somewhat good sense as to what was common and what was uncommon/rare back in the day so it won't be a huge task to sort that all out.

I would just check online to see what cards go for. If you have any cards worth $10 or more they would be good to sell individually but if you don't it would probably be easier to just sell it as a lot.

I'll give you tree fiddy for them! I still have all my cards but I don't plan on selling them.

I ain't sellin' my cards to no loch ness monster!

I was really holding them on for nostalgia sake but between my ongoing retro gaming collection, and Hamm's Beer memorabilia purchases for the bar around my den, some old habits just have to go to fund those pursuits. Therefore my MTG cards, sports cards, and possibly comics gotta go. At least with comics I know I have something with my incidental purchase of Marvel's Nyx #3...who knew all these years later it'd be worth something!?

This page does a good job of giving a quick overview of the money cards from each set. I'd recommend checking it for each set you have cards from to see which are worth finding, then scan your collection for those.

Also one easy tip: check through your revised cards for any dual lands - those are all in pretty high demand.

Well it was about this time I noticed that this Magic player was about 8 stories tall and was a crustacean from the protozoic era!

Pokemon cards are, I have a lot of rares/1st edition "holographic" cards (most 1st season) I am going to sell to a shop tomorrow most likely.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 12:57:08 PM PST
By holographic, are you talking about Foils? I never got into Pokemon, but I know that some MTG foils were slightly higher value than the base card. Also, when did bi-lands go up in price? A few years ago, they were common as all get out when they were trying to convince people to start going multi-color. Heck, there for a while they were trying to convince people to run with 3 colors.

I'll have to scour for my dual lands. I know they exist in my collection but currently I have like 12 built and boxed/protected decks. Just have to find where they are.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 12:59:07 PM PST
They have done a lot of different dual lands but the ones that are the really high prices are the original dual lands back from the first sets. They can go for well over $100.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 12:59:52 PM PST
Yes, foils.

Posted on Nov 6, 2012 1:21:07 PM PST
Sure. Only very, very rare ones.

Well, find #1...know I have Volcanic Island, almost certain it's Revised Edition...almost certain...and the price for that is ridiculous...

I have a bunch of serra angels and shivren dragons. Those worth anything these days? hmm...I should sell them since I don't play anymore. If I do in the future I could always play with proxies.

Carlito says:
I have a mess of serra angels too, built decks around them...never said I was good ;) But from what I saw, they only go for a couple dollers depending on set.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 1:56:21 PM PST
Those would all depend on what set they are from since they are in quite a few.

I had 2 charizard foils/1st edition but my bro stole it and sold it. Bastiage.

In reply to an earlier post on Nov 6, 2012 2:13:13 PM PST
Same thing happened to me! I used to have 1st edition foils of charizard, blastoise, whatever the grass one was, and a few others and they were all stolen at a card shop. At the time it probably was a loss of over $500 if the cards were sold for their value at the time.

SA is one of the most overhyped white cards ever. 5 casting cost 4/4 flyer that doesn't tap to attack = seriously overpriced. If I'm going white, I always prefer to cap my cast cost a 3 with some exemptions(Wrath being a good exception.)

Serra Angels and Shivan Dragons are worth very little now. The cards from old sets that are worth something are the ones that are either very scarce (e.g. Raging River) or the ones that are actually very useful in eternal formats.

So a revised Shivan Dragon is like $1.50 and a revised Serra is about $.50.

"Force of Will" an uncommon from Alliances, on the other hand, runs about $60-$70, depending on condition. Other than dual lands, that's probably the most expensive card from Revised through Visions.
