Selling Your Cards?
If you are viewing this page, it is probably because you are thinking about selling your collection.
Good news, we are always interested in buying collections!
However, due to our limited staff, we do have some general guidelines to help streamline the process as much as possible, because we know your time is valuable.
Please see below for our current, general guidelines...
IF YOU ARE SELLING:
We predominantly look for baseball cards, of course, but will consider other sports depending on what is offered.
As a general rule of thumb, we are typically interested in looking at any baseball cards from 1980 or earlier. Does that mean we are not interested in looking at more recent cards? Absolutely not. We will consider anything we feel would be of interest to our community of collectors. Graded cards from all years, are also welcome.
Any baseball cards from 1981 on, we prefer to be major rookie cards only (Ripken, Griffey, Kershaw, Trout, Ohtani, etc.) and in mint condition. Meaning, excellent corners, edges, centering and surface.
At this time, we are unable to purchase "common" cards later than 1980. Common cards are those usually considered to be in high circulation and low demand.
Walk-ins are welcome, but are subject to the schedule of our limited staff.
If you have a significant number of cards (let's say, hundreds or more), you may want to start by emailing us a few photos of your collection so we can get an idea of what you have to offer before you lug your collection into the shop. Again, we know your time is valuable so we want to make sure we do anything we can to honor your time.
Due to our limited staff and high volume of emails, please be patient as our responses could take some time.
IF YOU NEED AN APPRAISAL:
Appraisals mean you want us to research your collection and put a value on your cards, which you may or may not be interested in selling.
Most people who are looking for appraisals will have higher value cards and are looking to take our appraisal information with them to use at their own discretion or for resale to other buyers. Appraisals can also commonly be used for insurance claim purposes, in the event a collection was damaged, etc.
Our appraisal process includes researching every single card you have and providing you with a detailed spreadsheet that includes all card information, plus current price comparisons to similar cards on the market.
Currently we are unable to process most walk-in appraisals, as they do take a significant amount of time per card to research properly.
If you need an appraisal, please email us for our current appraisal rates and to schedule an appointment.
The most frequent question we get is, "can you look at my cards and tell me if I have anything of value?". The short answer is, yes. Generally, we can do that in a few seconds where we give you our brief opinion based on a quick, broad look at your collection without looking at every single card you have. If you would like more detailed information, please refer to our appraisal paragraph above.
