Where to Sell Your Baseball Cards
Looking for someone who will buy your baseball card, entertainment trading card or other type of sports card, collectible and/or memorabilia collection? Bear in mind that dealers 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.
The following list contains a number of different companies who are actively buying baseball cards and other types of trading cards. We strongly suggest doing your homework prior to contacting anyone, as you should have some idea regarding what you are working with prior to selling your sports cards.
You will be very hard pressed to find a better option then eBay for selling your trading card collection. As long as you are willing to put in the time listing your collection and do your homework, eBay is likely to yield the greatest financial return - particularly when selling baseball cards, football cards, basketball cards and hockey cards worth more then $5 but less then $20,000.
