Need prices for 1998-99 Boxes
I found a card/coin/game shop close to my area that I had never been to before. The shop looked like it didn't do much with sports cards anymore and everything was in a back corner of the shop. I found a bunch of sealed boxes from 90's and early 2000's. I was thinking about buying them up and selling them but not sure what they go for these days. Here is a list of some of the boxes I saw (some of these products were just one box some of them had 3 or 4 boxes.)

1998-99 UpperDeck
1998-99 UD Encore
1998-99 UD Ionix
1998-99 Flair Showcase
1998-99 Finest
1998-99 Bowmans Best

I also saw these
1996-97 Finest
1996-97 Flair Showcase
1997-98 Flair Showcase
1997-98 UpperDeck
1999-00 Topps Gold Label
1999-00 Skybox Dominion

The seller had prices that I'm guessing are a lot lower than what they sell for. So if anyone can give me some ideas on what kind of prices I could get out of some these products I would really appreciate it. (Also I looked at ended auctions on Ebay but didn't get a lot of help)

For the 98-99 products, the Flair Showcase usually goes right around $100, Encore/Ionix a touch lower (like $80, UD a touch higher (like $125). Finest depends on the series. Series two has Dirk and Paul Pierce RCs and goes for about $80, series one can be had 10-15 bucks cheaper. Bowman's Best is usually pretty reasonable too, around $60.

The other products you may have a jackpot. 96-97 Finest series one can go for $200 easy cause ppl want to pull Kobe RCs. 97-98 Flair Showcase is similar. 96-97 Flair Showcase is even higher, $300 minimum, usually closer to $500. The others aren't super expensive, though I'm not too familar with the dominion product.

If you don't want to bust all of them, PM me, maybe we can work something out like a cash/trade combo for one of the boxes for the cards I have you were gonna buy!

I collect Michael Jordan, Mitch Richmond, and Ohio State players (football and basketball) in OSU gear. I strongly prefer 90's-era cards and use newer cards primarily for trade bait!

RE: Need prices for 1998-99 Boxes
tell the shop you will give them $1K cash for all of the boxes, that would be a very nice flip. If they have had the boxes for over 10 years and do not know much about cards, this would look like a good deal in their eyes.

Oh I'm staying away for awhile...not because I'm buying singles instead, but because I can't afford to buy anything lol.

RE: Need prices for 1998-99 Boxes
First, you have to make sure they are Hobby boxes, and not retail Boxes, as Retail Boxes usually sell lower than Hobby.

Second, go to one of the big online sellers like Dave and Adam's, blowout, etc.... and see what they have their boxes priced at.

And lastly, if you really want to sell them, don't get greedy on pricing, as buyers usually know what they can pay elsewhere for boxes, packs etc...

RE: Need prices for 1998-99 Boxes
Yeah, I don't think I can do that lol. I plan on busting some but I will be getting rid of some at close to cost. I'll probably put the 96-97 products on ebay though.
