    Le marché des cartes semble s'ëtre écroulé au milieu des années 90 (ironiquement, la dernière période économique boom). Comme possibilité, il y aurait quelques conventions pour collectionneurs à Montréal durant l'année, ou tu pourrais te louer une table et essayer de vendre. Ça si tu crois avoir assez de cartes valeurs pour justifier le temps et l'investissement. Si tu n'aurais que quelques cartes-clés, tu pourrais tout simplement te présenter et montrer tes possessions à un vendeur déjà en place (ne perds pas son temps en lui montrant ton toc, par contre).
    Pour la majorité, désolé il te faudra accepter un prix minimal en ces temps de récession. Tu pourrais probablement obtenir plus avec beaucoup de patience et un compte kijiji/ebay...

    The frustrating thing is that the stores will give you about 10 percent of the price of what they will sell it for. The secret is waiting and getting as many people to know that the cards are available.

    i have a huge baseball card collection,some older nhl cards as well, and went to dealers looking for value years ago, DONT always believe what they tell you...... they are salesmen and will tell you anything to get a deal and a steal from you...... btw, i think i have a couple gretzky rookies, any idea what their worth? i have not been in the "game" of trading in years and i wouldnt sell them anyways, not now......

    You could always try to sell them on e-bay. I just did a quick check and Gretzky rookie cards are selling from around 350 to over a thousand bucks depending on the quality of the card I guess.
    And the Lord said unto John, "Come forth and receive eternal life." But John came fifth and won a toaster.

    The key to selling collectables is time. The guy that buys, sells and trades will give you nothing because he will tell you he has to wait for a buyer. Thats how he can pay you nothing and then sell it for 800% to 1000% profit. Hold on to your stuff if they will pay you crap for it.
