John Starks of New York Knicks Joins Just Collect for Grand Opening

Rare Vintage Cards, Products for Sale, and a Meet and Greet with an NBA All-Star
  • October 07, 2022

Thank you for helping make the Grand Opening of our new store here in Millburn, New Jersey a night to remember! From the moment the ribbon was cut to the time we turned the lights off for the night, you helped us make our new Just Collect store a home. New York Knicks legend, John Starks, even stopped by to take photos, sign autographs, and open cards! Take a look at the pictures from this special night.

Our new store at 296 Millburn Ave here in Millburn, NJ. is everything we can dream of and more! Trust us - NONE of this would be possible without you. We're finally able to open our doors to you with our well-curated vintage store with items on display for sale from the vintage era.

The first thing you saw during the opening was our newly-acquired collection of 800 + Goudey baseball cards that includes 22 (yes, 22!) Babe Ruth and Lou Gehrig cards fresh to the market. These treasures have never been publicly displayed until now. Just a few of the vintage cards available for purchase are a 1951 Bowman Mickey Mantle, a 1954 Topps Hank Aaron rookie, a 1948 Leaf Jackie Robinson rookie card from our California Love Collection, a 1969 Topps Kareem Abdul-Jabbar rookie, a 1976 Topps Walter Payton rookie, and so much more. We also have select modern cards available such as high-grade Derek Jeter rookie cards and of course rookie cards like the iconic 1986-87 Fleer Michael Jordan

Our sister company, Vintage Breaks, also has modern wax and products available in the retail store, too. If you're looking for an Aaron Judge rookie card product or the latest Pokémon, all you'll need to do is look on our counter!

To help us christen our new store, John Starks came by to meet you! Starks was an NBA All-Star for the New York Knicks, the team he still holds the record for career three pointers made. Not only did John pose for photos and sign autographs, but he was kind enough to open a box of Mosaic basketball with our owner, Leighton. You can tell Starks really enjoyed ripping packs just like you and we do; he smiled the whole time!

Our good friend, Darren Rovell, brought his AMAZING ticket collection for viewing, too. Not only do we here at Just Collect purchase vintage cards and collections, we are also interested in purchasing tickets from great moments in time. If you're interested in selling your collection, please don't hesitate to ask us while you're at our store; we'd love to hear about your collection.

Here are some great shots from this special night:


Thank you again for helping us make our grand opening truly memorable. See you at the Just Collect store!

We offer many ways to evaluate your cards other than using our website, too.

  • Travel to us

If you can make the trip here like the son from my hometown did for this collection- we can make a deal at the office. We once met a father-son duo that drove eight hours from Virginia to meet us to sell a Michael Jordan rookie card stored in Tupperware since 1986 - great read here

  • Come to the convention

We keep a LIST of the card shows we'll be attending.  Come stop by the Just Collect table and chat.

  • Meet in-person

If you have a valuable collection and want us to come to you, we'll hop on the next plane out. We recently took a trip to California to purchase a collection that included three Jackie Robinson 1948 Leaf rookie cards that you can read about here.

  • Meet in New York City

We have another location in New York you can meet us at; read all the information here.

  • SHIP your collection 

If you choose to mail your cards for an appraisal, we will evaluate your cards for FREE still. If you choose not to sell the cards, we'll ship them back with shipping fees paid by us!  We can offer our FedEx account with 2-day shipping, fully insured, all covered by us. Simply contact the office to set up this option.


We've run into a wide range of people and collections over the last 25 years. Although Just Collect is known for buying vintage sports cards and especially vintage baseball cards, we are also extremely interested in buying non-sports cards, too!  

Every collection and every collector is different and we treat EVERY collection with the respect and attention that we show for our own collections. We understand that many have put their heart and souls into building their collections. So when you're ready to sell, we understand the feelings that you're going through and will work with you to help you reach a decision that is a WIN/WIN, because if you're not happy, we're not happy.


Whether you have vintage cards or modern wax you want to sell, you can reach out to us any time!
