If your baseball cards escaped the wrath of mom or dad and a good Spring cleaning, you're in luck. Many card collections have met an unfortunate demise for the sake of an orderly closet or bedroom. Whether you have a childhood baseball card collection, an inheritance passed down from a parent or grandparent, a mystery box of baseball cards found in the attic or a hoard stashed away in the basement for a college fund or early retirement – you know they're worth something, but how much? Have you wondered what the value or how to sell your baseball cards? Maybe you've’ve checked the Internet or eBay and can't seem to make sense of the information. Don't get frustrated. There are answers to the question – “How do I sell my baseball cards!” Identifying the era of your collection is the first step in determining the most reasonable method and/or avenue to sell. The good news is that all cards have value. The bad news is that most baseball cards are modern and modern cards have less value. Modern is typically defined as 1980 and newer, while vintage is typically 1979 and earlier. The overall condition of the collection is probably the most significant variable with regard to actual value. Stars and complete sets will bring premiums over partial sets and those missing the stars. However, tobacco (T205, T206, T207, T212, Piedmont, Sweet Caporal, Sovereign, El Principe de Gales, Old Mill, Tolstoi, Carolina Brights, Red Cross, American Tobacco Company, Polar Bear, Recruit, Broadleaf, Drum, Uzit, Lenox, Cycle, Hindu, American Beauty, Imperial, Mayo Cut Plug, Goodwin, Old Judge and Obak) or candy and caramel cards (American Caramel, National Caramel, Cracker Jacks, Breisch-Williams and Zeenut) from the early 1900’s (Ty Cobb, Cy Young, Honus Wagner), Goudey and Play Ball cards from the 1930’s and 1940’s (Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Joe DiMaggio, Ted Williams), Bowman or Topps cards from the 1950’s (Jackie Robinson, Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, Sandy Koufax, Roberto “Bob” Clemente) still have value and generate interest even if not in complete set form. We are an active and aggressive buyer of vintage baseball, football, basketball and hockey cards. We buy baseball, basketball, football and hockey card collections, autograph collections and vintage sports memorabilia (ticket stubs, programs, advertising, equipment, stadium giveaways and other sports related items). The Just Collect buying formula uses real time pricing and provides a final value and purchase offers that are typically higher than you will get from selling them at the local card shop, sports card show or by listing them on eBay or Craigslist and without the hassle of lugging everything to a show hoping to solicit an offer from a dealer or having strangers call you at all hours and arranging nervous meetings. We will travel to you to buy larger collections, meet with you locally at one of our East Coast locations or coordinate free, fully-insured shipping of your collection to us for evaluation by our baseball card specialists and provide you with a prompt purchase offer and immediate payment. Recently, we have traveled to Florida, New York, Colorado, Alabama, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland, California and Texas while spending more than $2,000,000.00 buying baseball cards. We have also purchased collections, runs of sets and sports autographs and memorabilia from nearly 20 other states that have been sent to us for evaluation. Whether you have old football, basketball, hockey or baseball cards, complete sets, wax packs, wax boxes or unopened cases from 1879-1979, Just Collect is ready, willing and able to make you a considerable cash offer to purchase your collection today with immediate payment in cash, PayPal, check or bank wire!
