How To Sell Baseball Cards — 14 Comments

  1. My older brother, now deceased, collected a ton of cards over the years. He played baseball for years. He was scouted and had a great future. One day, during practice, he pitched a ball that accidentally hit another player. The coach walked over to my brother, punched him in the mouth and railroaded him. Small town politics. My Dad was the newly elected Mayor and this coach hated him.

    I think everyone has a story. Anyway, Doug’s collection of cards is precious to my other brother and myself. Your article is excellent.


    • Hi Donna. Absolutely ridiculous behavior by that so called “coach”. I do hope he spent some time behind bars? Thanks for stopping by and sharing your story and come back anytime. ~Jeremy

  2. My husband has so many baseball cards that I really should look into getting rid of some of them. They just sit in a closet and this would be a nice way to go through and see what he has. Thanks for the suggestions and great ideas.

    • You’re welcome Angela! You never know what you may find. Thanks for dropping by and let me know if you need a hand with anything. ~Jeremy

  3. I didn’t know you could go to card shows. But I guess they have those types of events for everything. But how do you know if you have anything of value?

  4. Hey Jeremy,
    I think you have made some valuable points. I never got into baseball cards but I do have a pretty good size stamp collection. Most of the points you have made can be transferred to any collectable. Thank you for the information.

  5. Hi Jeremy,
    We started buying cases of topps baseball cards when our son was born, 1984, decided it was time to sell and give him the money. We live in Sarasota, what is the best way to go about finding a buyer?
    Thank you,

    • Hi Karen.
      Before you start looking for a buyer, I would strongly suggest that you look into getting a Beckett price guide book so you have a good idea what your cards are worth.

      After you do that, I would start with your local card/hobby shop. You may not get the best price there, but you will probably be able to sell them all in one shot. Card dealers love buying bulk!

      If you are not happy with the offer you get there, I suggest looking into selling on ebay/craigslist. Then you will be able to sell the cards individually or in lots. Selling online will let you ask the price you feel is fair.

      Look into the Beckett price guide to start (I left a link near the top of the post) and let me know how it goes. I would like to know what you come up with and offer you further assistance from there.

      I eagerly await your response. 🙂
      Thanks for stopping by ~Jeremy
