Hi,
I have an eircom callcard of The Late Late show commeration with Gay Byrne on the front. Its still in its packaging. Is this worth anything?

Hi Sue,

The Late Late Show Callcard with Gay Byrne is unfortunately very common, with 150, 000 produced. Even mint it would only be worth a few euro, my guesstimate €2-4~ delivered

hi, just wondering if there is anyone selling a callcard folder preferably the telecom eireann one's???? i've looked but no success yet

Hi Louise,

The TE/Eircom ones do come up now and again for sale. I would also recommend the guide here to find out information about the "UltraPro" range of collectible cards storage, it's what I use primarily for my collection :)

hi, just wanted to find out where or how could i go about selling my callcard collection - i have 100's not including 100's of spare card as well - i was a avid collector but could do with getting bit of cash, have a few cards still in wrappers

cheers niall maher

Hi Niall,

Sorry for the delay in getting back to you. Been mad busy lately! Selling your collection is probably best done on www.adverts.ie, as it is free and trusted. Ebay is another option, however ebay has fees. Mint cards will typically make face value, this being more likely for the larger unit denominations. You will also find that people only tend to buy single cards, so be prepared to split up the collection and sell cards individually. If you drop me a mail: nick[@]irishcal lcards.net I could advise you based on what you have with regards to values.

Good luck

Nick
