When the Jets came back, I realized I still had the box, and took a look inside. Pretty awesome. I have the whole set of (1994?) Jets bookmarks with quotes from each player about literacy, plus a ton of other ****. I think there are 20-something Essensa cards (lots of repeats) in there.
Also, I have the card of Burton Cummings in a Jets jersey.
I have no clue what I'm going to do with any of this stuff. I have absolutely no clue what hockey cards are worth these days, and these aren't in plastic cases or anything, they're just loose in a box, so I doubt I'd get much money for them if I brought them to a card store.
I'll probably just hold on to them for lack of any better option.
I would suggest putting the cards in plastic pages and placing them in a binder. You can buy the pages at sport card stores and I believe that Staples has some less expensive ones.
The cards are then protected and it is a really nice way to browse through them. My friends really enjoy my Jets cards binders as do I.
