Although they never lasted for more than a minute - using balloons made the "most awesomest" sound - kinda' like a motorcycle.

I have rental properties and over the years have collected and saved many baseball cards and comics ppl have left behind.

Where is the best place to find out if they have value online?

We were so poor my momma would tie a string to a pork chop bone and let us taste but never swallow.

Your best bet is to take them to a "trusted" source, like a baseball card shop or comic store. Most sources online charge to give you estimates based on grades. My son-in-law is an avid card collector - and he charges a fee to grade cards.
