Okay, gotten a few replies but was hoping for a lot more. As I feel the prices are pretty fair in my opinion.
I have listed about 10 teams autos so far, which were pretty much from one of my 3000 count boxes, that had most of the latest autos I picked up in the last year.
So, nobody picked anything other than a few hot rookies mostly.
i therefore, decided to collate all the 5 3000 count boxes of autos I have. I divided them into divisions, except for the NL West, which I did by team. Because, "She Who Must Be Obeyed" are binge watching "New Trick" on Amazon Prime and is a very fun British Police series about hiring 3 retired police officers to work cold cases. Highly recommend! I have worked two boxes a day, and had to box up every night. Therefore, have Padres Autos in three different boxes; etc.
So imagine my surprise when I got done with the 5th box and realized I hadn't found my Panini autos, so I have 6 boxes of Autos total.
Plus, I 'd forgotten that I had picked up autos Daryl Strawberry, Keith Hernandez, Curt Schilling, Scott Rolen, etc. I also appear to have a couple 100 USA autos and non-associated cards, that don't have a team name associated with the player on them.
So, if there's I autos for a team your looking for and I will try and post those first, when the collating is done.
Thanks Bob

I checked out the Dodgers page and my thought is this. The prices seem in line with what I would expect. Some bargains, if you need/want the cards for sure. You only had about a dozen cards, so maybe a buyer finds 1-2 cards and if they really want them, they strike a deal. If you have lots more autographs, maybe you can pick up more interest via other teams. I would suggest maybe consolidating into a single thread of autographs, by team.

I collect Dodgers as a team, but collect a lot of other things. Finding and searching through dozens of different threads is unappealing. It takes some work for sure, but my ideal seller list shows me the card and a price, close together. Some of the better formats either have a grouping of cards followed by the prices or if you had the time, one to one picture/pricing.

Have six 3,000 count boxes of autos! Each box contains a division plus the shorter divisions have USA autos, Razor, Just, Trust as, etc topping off the box. Next, have to separate each division into teams. Then, have to separate each team alphabetically, and then by player.

If you are not completely organized, selling is going to be tough work. Even if you are organized, the sheer volume some people have can be overwhelming. That is where I sit. I would like to dip my toe into the waters, but have never quite finished the organization.

Now, I am not selling them yet, but my autographs are sorted by player. I decided a long time ago that this would be one area of the collection that I would have organized as I went. I also focused a lot of my attention to autographs for my collection. It grew from a couple super shoes with the cards in top loaders to probably 30 super shoes with cards in soft sleeves. Not everything is going to appeal to everyone and this includes a lot of dupes as well.

I am 95% done sorting all of the rest of my cards by player (my Dodger cards being my only exception to this sorting rule, but those are sorted by player within the team grouping), but because I have done this over a long time, I have boxes and boxes of stuff that is sorted A-Z, but not consolidated. I might have 30 different boxes with A players in them. That is why finding a specific Fred Lynn, Ken Griffey or Pete Rose card might be nearly impossible for me right now.

I was only giving you my perspective. If I have to work too hard as a buyer, I just move on to the next guy. The way I showed you is the ideal way for me to shop, but maybe that doesn't work as well for others. The "I have so much more not listed/shown/displayed, just ask" excuse because the seller won't put in the time to be better organized gets old after everyone you ask doesn't have what you want though. I just stopped asking and moved on.

I should add that one of my personal peeves about online buying (outside of ebay/COMC) is the lack of images. Images are vital for card selling in my opinion. So many people care about specifics (centering, condition, etc), but also some people are visual buyers, myself included. Who doesn't love to browse? I might not be looking for that Omar Vizquel card you are selling, but when I see it listed with a photo and that photo grabs me, I am now a buyer for a card I would have never known of or thought to ask for.

Here is how I tried to sell some left over scrub autos. I didn't have a lot of success and I think it was a factor of these reasons:

1). The autos are junk players that most people don't want
2). The images are small, with 9 cards per, and I did not take the time to better describe them
3). I was overall lazy about the whole process, simply because these are $1 autos and didn't figure they were worth the extra time. I have been trying to sell them on ebay and dropped down to about 40 cents per card in bulk and still had no takers, so I brought them back here for a try. I sold 2-3 maybe. Whoo hoo! The images are there, but the buyers have to do most work to determine who some of the cards are featuring.

When I am ready to do it right, I will have to spend the time to make it easy for buyers to want to buy my cards.

Thanks...trying to break it down to player. Probably should open a new file on Beckett organize...I do scan photos on request and for eBay.
I do have one Dodgers photo on the Dodger auto page.
Nice to discover cards I'd forgotten about. Don Newcomb, Andre Eithier, Willie Davis IP, along with the ones in the post.
I have a couple Garvey IP autos, from when he and Dave Winfield were doing a live Interview at Sycuan Casino, somewhere.
Again, thanks for the thoughts, Bob
