Being a collector for many years one thing is for certain, the baseball collecting market has changed and has left many with worthless cards.
A lot of that has to do with the card manufacturers flooding the market.
I can tell you this;
1. If your cards are after 1981 they are not worth much
2. If your cards are not certified they are worthless
3. If your cards are not certified by PSA at an 8-10 range, they are
4. You will never, and I mean never, get book value, from anyone.
SO basically your cards need to be pre 1981, and certified anywhere between 8-10 by PSA for them to have any value at all. If not then just admire them and remember all the fun you had collecting them because that's about what they are worth.
I'm sure that's not what you wanted to hear but it is reality
