I was cleaning out my room which is real cluttered and came across a 2002 fleer card a close friend of mine got me as a gift a few years ago. It is a Dan Marino card with a piece of a game worn jersey inserted on the card. Is this worth anything?

I had it hanging on my wall for the past 2 years. We had to paint my room so i took it down and put it in a little vault I have. Im again about to move, and thinking it is worth something I may pass it along to someone else..

Can you give more details?

Whats the number on the back?

What does it say exactly? Most insert cards have a name to them.

just get a football card beckette and look up the year, then the company that made the card (ie Fleer or Topps, something like that) then look up the actual card and it will have a price listed next to it.

you can also just google the card number and "dan marino" as well as whatever the company is, it'll come up

If you didn't already have someone in mind, you could just pass it along to me....:cooldude: :cooldude:



In all seriousness, I bet that is worth a pretty penny to the right bidder. The earlier comment about e-bay is probably a good bet. Be sure to put a high minimum.

I think this is one being sold right now on ebay. Might give you an idea of value, if it's even the right one.

Do people still buy cards? I have like 1,000's of football cards in mint condition from when I was a kid. Maybe I should sell them.

Of course we do. Take a look on Ebay and look at how many sell each day.

they print so many of the game worn jersey cards now, they are rarely worth much....
the cards are worth different amounts depending on if theres any grass or dirt on it, the ones that are messed up looking are worth more, but still its probably not worth more than 30 or 40 dollars

You know as a Fin fan the card is worth more to you (us) than just run of the mill collectors. As mentioned, the game used jersey cards are so mass produced now that the value is not that high. The exception is when you have one that is autographed. Those are usually produced in very limited number and value over $100.

Collecting cards is not what it used to be. Prior to 1995 there used to be a few brands and even fewer inserts. So it was fun. Now it is so massed produced and, and mass marketed, and there are so many brands it is overwhelming. Jersey cards are a great example of that. So many are made that it dilutes the value of the card and ruins a perfectly wonderful game jersey.

I still collect, but not like I used to. I would hold on to the the card. As a fan it is worth more to you. If it book values at$45, in the open market you can get about $25-30 for it.

If you card is numbered AT11, it's valued at $40 accoring to Beckett (December edition). If the card is gold edition it worth $100. The botom line is the card it is worth what ever someone is willing to pay however as a dolphin fan, to me it's priceless. I would keep it. If you realy want to get the most value for the card, have it graded. If there is a demand for the card, then the graded value (if 9.0 or above) it could fetch several $100's. I hope this helps

as a rule, usually cards sell for 50-75% of the BV...and most people use beckett as a guide
