Need some help from the Griffey experts... Just acquired this card below. I know they are fairly rare as I have not seen any on Ebay of COMC. Can anybody tell me possible value?

2008 Topps Back to School #TB4 Ken Griffey Jr.

These are tough to find. I have 3 Pujols and he is valued around $25 to $30. Griffey should be at least that if not more. Here is some info:
These eight cards were distributed in specially-marked back-to-school retail packages produced by Fairfield which were sold at Target. Two of these cards were packaged with two packs of Series One and two packs of Series Two for $7.99.
  • TB1 Miguel Cabrera
  • TB2 Albert Pujols
  • TB3 Grady Sizemore
  • TB4 Ken Griffey, Jr.
  • TB5 David Wright
  • TB6 Ichiro
  • TB7 Alex Rodriguez
  • TB8 Chipper Jones

Anyone willing to part with their APOH Bat Auto /25 of Griffey?

Willing to pay $10k.

1999 Fleer Mystique Masterpiece 1 of 1

Figured I’d post this here in case anyone missed my 90’s insert post. Likely headed to grading and then auction. If anyone would like more info moving forward don’t hesitate to ask!

Can’t go wrong with grading really, but I’m sure you would get some strong offers/bids even if you don’t grade.

Nice card! How did you get it?

Thanks, yea there has been a lot of interest even ungraded. We were big Fleer Mystique hobbyists back when they came out and so recently when going through the old collection I started investigating what the Griffey would go for. It all started because I found a Tom Brady 2000 Score Rookie Preview Auto in my “trash cards” binder I hadn’t looked at in 15 years. Also found a 2000 Mystique Brady rookie numbered to 1012/2000 and a bunch of 90s inserts. Only Griffey Cards I dug up are a Fleer Mystique /2500 card and two graded 10 rookies (USA grading and PRO grading). I bought those 20 years ago with my dad as well. My dad paid what he thought was way too much for the Griffey back then from a guy who helped us source a lot of the boxes. We pulled 11 “Established” cards that I’ll post a picture of as well!

I'd love to go through your "trash cards" binders! ;) What else was in that binder...any Frank Thomas or 96 Select Certified in there?

It took me 30 years but I finally got my 2nd 89 UD rookie (not in hand yet but fingers crossed) My 1st one isnt really perfect. This one looks better. I know its hard to tell but what does anyone here think of the shape of this one?

Hi everybody. Posting here after a long and complicated battle with consigners and multiple attempts at grading this card. Long story short my BIG consignment company I hired to sell this 1/1 masterpiece failed to get it graded by both PSA and Beckett so I feared the worst. After calling in a favor and having a very credible member of the industry submit this card for me it finally came back. I’m fielding all offers right now (already have a 9 and 10k offer) but I’m being transparent and letting everyone know that I’m shopping around offers right now. I think a private sale may be best for the card and this community. Let me or anyone else interested know. Thanks! Feel free to email at [email protected]bJQ98sx.jpg

Why don't you post a pic of the card in it's case? ...and "coin it" so people will know you have it in hand.
(Did you used to live in Ohio?)

I have no intention of buying anyway, but that coin looks pretty sketchy. I'd want to see the coin from different angles and different orientations to the card.
