(Side rant: I too was into card collecting in the '80's. I bought about anything including USFL cards. Long story short I bought a couple of boxes of the '86-'87 Fleer for dirt cheap - .10 a pack - because no one had interest in basketball cards. I liked the stickers that came with them. Ultimately I lost all of these cards during one of our several moves as a family back in the day. It just sickens me to think about it.)
Last winter I came across a small box of about 175 1986-87 Fleer cards. I sold them on EBAY which included a Jordan card for over $600. But that is rare to sell 80's sports cards for that price. I tried selling a lot of my 80's stars I duplicates of and could only sell the major stars like McGwire, Bonds and Griffey and those for a very minimal price. Basically 80's cards are considered junk by most people because there was such a glut of them. I had much more success selling old baseball cards from the 50's,60's and 70's. But I ran out of the duplicates I had of them. These older one's sold much better and even one's in poor condition sold.
