    My great uncle smoked cigars and saved a bunch of the Hassan triple fold baseball cards. As he opened the cigar boxes he would set the baseball cards on the beam above his work bench in his basement. We found the cards after his death (lung cancer) in the mid 60s. The cards have remained protected in a jewelry type box since then. As I recall there are nearly 40 cards most of which are in the condition they were in when removed from the original cigar box. One of the cards is a Ty Cobb which I believe could be rather valuable. I have two questions. How best can I protect the cards. Can you recommend a type of individual card protector and a location I may purchase some. I would also like to know what recommendations you may offer as to how to sell the cards.
