Bear in mind that companies won't automatically buy just anything. Buying and selling baseball cards is their means of livelihood, so if they don't think they can turn a profit from purchasing your collection, they are unlikely to buy it from you.

If your collection mainly consists of late 1980's and early to mid 1990's baseball cards then it is for all intensive purposes worthless. This is a result of the gross overproduction of sports cards during this era. If you are lucky enough to find someone to purchase these kinds of cards the payout would hardly even warrant the gas or shipping expenses incurred in completing the transaction. You are much better off donating the cards to charity. In addition to helping a good cause, in many cases your donation can be used as a tax write off come April. Find out more about why your sports cards from the early 90's are worthless. But bear in mind that there are some exceptions.
