I have no clue but what you could do is visit www.ebay.com and see if someone else is selling some too - it might indicate how much it's worth...

You could also seach for you cards anywhere on the net.  Once you find someone who has some you could ask what value they give them.  I forget the name but, there's this guy who's in charge of the Metropolis Museum - isn't he attached to this site?  Like maybe Jim Hambrick but I'm not sure about the name though.  He's a very big collector.  
Lastly, visit a comic shop.

Another resource might be "Hake's Guide to Character Collectibles," published by Gemstone once a year in a format similar to the venerable Overstreet comic book price guide.

"Hake's" usually has a big section on Superman, as well as all kinds of other characters...real-life, animated, comic strip and comic book...from Roy Rogers to Frankenberry with all stops between.

Should be able to dig one up at any well-stocked bookstore or maybe even a library.  But if you're gonna buy one, be advised it's like 35 bucks or so...kind of steep for a paperback!

Good guess.  Thunderbirds was a British adventure/sci-fi show from producer Gerry Anderson, using his (in?)famous "supermarionation" techniques (now on display in commercials for "Orbitz") and featuring lots of cool vehicles that ended up on toy shelves.  Anderson later moved on to live-action fare like "Space:1999" and my personal fave, "UFO."

I know the cards were popular because a couple years ago they did a calendar featuring the original artwork.  And at last report, a Thunderbirds remake was in the works with Jonathan (Star Trek: TNG) Frakes directing, so it might be a good time to sell this kind of thing.

Not sure if the Thunderbirds would show up in Hake's Guide, but it's worth a try.  It at least meets what seems to be Hake's criteria: it was a case of toys being based on a show, instead of the other way around (like say, the Care Bears or GI Joe).
