I have tons of the 1991 (-92?) series playing cards (something like 4 or 5 boxes of the packs).  One of the boxes has been opened, but the box is there and all cards from it are present and as far as I could tell, mint.  The other boxes are factory sealed.  I really can't come up with a valid reason to keep them right now.  Any ideas on what these go for/ are worth?

Thanks,
Dan

I believe they go from $5-10 each. I had some extras and I think they went for around 8.

Frank is right. $8 is the current value.

Thanks gents.  I guessed as much.  Looks like it'd be more worth my while to just hang on to them.  Oh well, that's what closets are for :).

Not according to my wife.  She has this funny idea that closets are for putting clothes in.  I've tried to explain it to her, but she just doesn't get it.  :)

I know the feeling. I am allowed 1 closet for guns, weapons and anything else I want to put in there. Every other one belongs to my wife. It really isn't fair.
I think that, unless there is a strange cosmic storm that only destroys D&D trading cards, holding on to them won't make any real difference as far as price. Then again, even a storm might not make them worth much.

You have a point.  It just seems such a waste to get rid of things like that for so little.  They're pretty neat to have, and they were tacked on to another lot I bought, so I suppose maybe I'll formulate a use for them one day.
