Just Collect Continues Purchasing Collections at the National

Thousands of Cards Appraised and Purchased at the National Sports Collectors Convention
  • July 29, 2023

Thousands of vintage cards including some of the rarest cards in the world were brought to the Just Collect booth here at the National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago. We are purchasing cards and collections all show long! Come take a look behind-the-scenes at The World Series of Cards.

We can't believe the National is half over already! There is nothing better on the planet than being at the National Sports Collectors Convention. If you're here in Chicago and looking to sell your vintage cards or collection, we are BUYING all show long! We will have plenty of wonderful stories for you to read about each of these spectacular cards after we return from the show, but we want to bring you behind-the-scenes and show you a few of the cards that came to our booth for a review, appraisal, an offer, or a purchase.

Leighton is showing the owners of a collection the process how he reviews each card:


Ready to purchase a vintage Ty Cobb Sport Kings card:


A binder full of 1949 Bowman Baseball cards is being reviewed. Do you remember putting you cards in pages and a binder?


If you don't have complete sets or entire collections, but are interested in selling single vintage cards, we'd love to chat with you! No collection is too small or too large for us here at Just Collect.


While we did not purchase this collection, we had one of the rarest cards in the world be brought to our booth for a potential purchase - the 1909 T206 Eddie Plank! We have purchased an Eddie Plank T206 previously in the Fairy Godmother Find.



If you're interested in selling your cards, we'd love to see you stop by booth 2102 at the National! Whether vintage single cards or complete sets, Just Collect is buying. Make sure to check back here on our blog for the full stories of the collections we have purchased at the The National; you could be featured next!


Just Collect is always buying vintage sports and non-sports cards from 1879 to 1979 as well as select modern cards. If you have a collection that you are considering selling, contact us today to discuss or get our industry-leading purchase offer. If you have a collection that you want appraised, please contact us and we would be happy to discuss your collection and help you understand the real cash value of your collection in the current marketplace. Check out the Just Collect Buy List.

We offer may ways to evaluate your cards other than or 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 convention

We keep a LIST of 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.

  • 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 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!
