I got an email from Richard with a question:
I am interested in selling my APBA baseball 1975 complete set with xb’s , lineup sheet and master game symbols in the original team envelopes.Can you give me any info on doing this?
I’d have to say of all the questions I get from APBA players over email, ones like these are the most popular. Either someone wants to sell a card set or is looking to buy a used set.
Unfortunately, it’s not as simple as putting an ad in the local paper or even online sites like Craigslist. APBA games are such a niche product that you need to go to where other fans are.
Here was my answer to Richard:
You pretty much have two choices. The first is putting it up for sale on Ebay. You’ll certainly hit a large audience. If you’re familiar with doing that, you might have good luck.
The other is posting an ad on the APBA Between the Lines forum. There is a Classifieds section there and you might find a taker. If you haven’t been to the forum, it’s free and only requires you to register. Here is the address.
hope that helps!
I will add this. I’ve bought a fair number of sets off Ebay in the past and haven’t had a problem. That said, you will probably find a “friendlier” audience on Between the Lines (then again, your mileage may vary).
Do others have a source where they buy/sell used APBA products?
PS now that I’ve given Richard a free ad, I’d be happy to put anyone who is interested in his 1975 set in touch with him!
