    Sadly, you’d be lucky to sell the sealed factory set for more than $10 these days. I would just crack it open and have fun thumbing through the cards.

    The cards in that set, if sold individually, would total a few hundred dollars at least. The Nolan Ryan card(#1) is valued at $50 according to Beckett. And thats just one card

    I have the most recent Beckett and it values the Nolan Ryan card as worth between $0.60 and $1.50. Real sales tend to go for the lower end of Beckett values. Good luck selling!

    I have an entire box of the packs that have never been opened. What do you think the value of it would be?
