Which key rookies are included in the deal (and how many of them) are crucial. Are you getting one each (minus the Jordan of course), are there any multiples of the star rookies? Give us a count and general idea on condition of the stars and it will make it easer to give you an estimate.
Keep in mind there is a pretty big difference value wise between a 9.5 and a 9.0 for all of these cards. A run of the mill common that grades at 9.0 is going to auction on Ebay for $10 give or take some dollars while a 9.5 could get $30-$45 (or more depending on which one). The stars have even a bigger discrepancy with a 9.0 Barkley expecting to go $80-100 and a 9.5 going for $300+ most likely. These are just examples.
As other posts have pointed out. It kind of depends on what you're after, an all graded set or an ungraded set. If you are wanting a graded set just make sure you are getting enough cards that will meet your minimum grade requirement for your set or else you will be doing a lot of work selling off a lot of cards to recoup the costs of buying these cards and submitting them for grading. Remember that if your goal is to get a graded set of 9.0's you may be better off buying graded commons off of ebay. If you figure on buying this lot at an average of $1 per common and a submission to Beckett is gonna run you about $8/card depending on the promotion and if you are willing to wait for delivery you could just as easily cherry pick commons off of ebay with less risk and at potentially less cost.
Anyway, I could probably go on forever, so I will stop there. Reply on post or PM me if you want to talk it over some. I may be willing to go in with you on some of your extra cards depending on their condition as I am always looking to upgrade my set.
