Selling baseball/football cards?

My father in law asked me to try and sell his cards for him on ebay. He has a TON of them and will be paying me 20% of the final sales.

I really don't care about how much he'll be paying me but I'd like to know if selling them on ebay is the right way to go or is there a different way to sell them?

Most of them have been graded by Beckett grading? so these aren't the kind of cards that are found in bubble gum packs.

Any ideas on the best way to sell them?

No idea on where to sell these cards besides Ebay? I've checked out a couple of the cards on Ebay and they really don't seem to be selling.

If you've got a decent sized town around you, there's probably a brick & mortar store. Something that sells collectibles.

I would say you have to do some research on the cards. You need to figure out how many of the cards are "super collectibles". I would try and sell those first.

The rest you can bundle and sell as a group.

I don't sell on ebay so cannot comment there. I would hunt down some brick and mortar stores. Coin shops, "used stores" such as places that sells used games, books, etc. might be a good resource for you.

Flea markets or swap meets would be a great place to sell. That is where I would sell them. ALL cash.
