There is no command that allows you to set the identity seed for multiple tables at the same time. You will have to do the reseeding one at a time.

Are you trying to manage a group of ten tables such that the next insert to any one of those tables would draw from the same pool of sequence numbers? If you are, you might want to investigate the SEQUENCE object. It is available only in SQL 2012 though.
