OMG What to do with this Paper?

I'm sorry if this isn't close enough to a comic book... but I was wondering if Comic Cards still (or ever) have (had) value. As a teenager I collected comic cards for 3 years... I found them in my closet just recently when moving to a new place... and wasn't sure if these things were worth gold yet... or should be used to whipe my ass.

Thoughts? :D

    Probably not.
    Depends on the card
    And who you sell it to.
    Like any collectible.
    I myself have an assload of Marvel cards.

    I have a complete set of Marvel Series 1 in a special binder you had to send away for. I have never seen a price for the binder anywhere.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    The same statement can be said of any CCG. God, I wish I had that money back. :(

    I sold some Magic cards to a guy a week ago for about 30 bucks. So some of them retain a bit of value.

    Not Overpower though. I bought a box of those for five dollars a few years back, just for the pictures.

    That is the reason my friends and I started to play overpower. We only ever had enough money to play Magic back in the day, but when we stopped that overpower crashed in popularity. Nothing like starting a CCG and paying $10 canadian for an entire box of boosters for each set.

    Well damn... I guess I'll have to hold on to these damn things untill we run out of trees... Maybe in the year 2040 when I'm 56 they might be worth a few bucks. I would be so rich if I didn't waste so much money on stupid crap. :lol:

    at least you could play a game with them. as opposed to all my marvel/x-men cards, which were more or less just cardboard reference sheets for how sweet a character is. oh, spider-man has an intelligence of *6* but an agility of *7*? stan lee, you've done it again!

    I had my fair share of regular do nothing Marvel Cards as well, Marvel Annual, X-men (with the animation cells), and Marvel Metal are still hiding out in my house somewhere.

    Overpower however I have a damn boot sized shoebox full of the damn things.

    Oh man, I collected sooo many of those worthless pieces of crap. I remember the day I got the card(um marvel series number 3?) for the Celestials and was all "OMG, they're unlimited on every stat?!! Surely these truely are the most powerful and awe-inspiring of Marvel's infinitude of cosmic beings."

    I had a complete set of those Marvel X-men cards (I think it was the second edition of x-men cards, or was it the first? It was the early to mid 90's...I think?)

    I just stuck them in a photo album and god knows where they are now. Probably a few still lurking in my parents shed.

    Maybe because of the constant "event after event after event, etc" of comics nowadays-with the Big Two, at least- there's too much of a change in status quo to warrant a need of cards for every character. Not to bash any of the events (unless the Amalgam Universe comes back...).

    I don't see why more "indie" publishers don't jump on it though. I remember The Maxx having a set that (I'm pretty sure) talked about different scenes from the title as well as characters. Or maybe it was for its cartoon...I don't remember.
