Andy, CT July 2024

Andy was moving and didn’t want to take his collection with him. He shopped it with a number of dealers, and we came in with the high bid. Mike and I were in CA so one of Mike’s staff drove up to CT with a truck and a big, fat, bank check. There were over 2500 Silver and Bronze Age Comics including beautiful copies of Amazing Spider-Man #1, X-Men #1, Giant Size X-Men #1, ASM #14 plus (3) Life Size LE Marvel Statues, CGC graded keys and over (100) Pages of Marvel Original Art w/Captain America Splash pages up the wazoo!

Ed, CA July 2024

Ed contacted us with among other things, a couple of Registry Sets, one of our specialties. A 1955 Topps Baseball Set (all graded) and a T201 Registry Set (all graded). We priced out the collection and made a deal over the phone. Mike drove over, hung out with Ed for a couple house, paid him and was on his way. Mike enjoyed his visit so much, he almost forgot about the collection.

Jeff (part 2), CA July 2024

Jeff was very happy with our first transaction, so he called Mike back for Part 2. Another ton of framed memorabilia. Signed and Framed Jerseys of Jordan, Lebron, Kobe, Koufax, Jeter, Jim Brown and much more. Well over a 100 pieces. Jeff requested Mike bring a truck. He did, and they loaded it to the brim.

Jeff, CA June 2024

Jeff contacted us with an amazing collection of memorabilia. Kobe signed Jerseys, Jordan signed ball, Jordan signed game used floor, several Lebron signed pieces, a load of signed baseballs (Mantle, Mays, Aaron), and a rare, Kirby Puckett signed Twins Jersey. He also had graded cards and a PSA 8 Jordan rookie as part of a complete set.

 Mike headed to Jeff’s house with a load of cash and departed with some of the nicest looking memorabilia pieces we’ve seen. Both parties left with a smile. That’s the way we like it.

Antonio, PA June 2024

Antonio contacted us with nice collection of over 100 graded cards. Included we an Aaron Rookie, Banks Rookie, Jordan Rookie and some high value Kobe, Lebron and Brady Rookies. We detailed our buy prices and it exceeded Antonio’s expectation. Antonio took a nice trip to Mike’s store to make the exchange.

Travis, MN June 2024

Travis contacted us with a large collection of unopened cases. He gave us a list of the cases; we gave him a price. Deal was down. We handled all the logistics. We had 5 empty pallets delivered to his house along with shrink film. We wired him the agreed upon amount and arranged for a truck with a lift gate to pull into his driveway. The driver used a pallet jack to load all the pallets onto the truck. Travis waived good bye and counted his money.

 If you have a warehouse, storage unit or garage filled with unopened cases, we’re the ones to call. For warehouse deals or high value cases, we can have Mike and one of his team at your location within a couple days with payment in hand.

Steve, Virginia  April 2024

Steve sent us a list, complete sets from 1959 to the present, 1000s and 1000s of signed cards – from major stars and HOF’ers to commons – tons of key RC including Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Ty Cobb T206 and much more! 

We called him a couple hours later and after Steve spoke to some other firms, most of whom wanted to cherry pick his enormous collection, he was ready to make a deal with us. That’s when Mike sprang to action, took a 6A flight to VA, met Steve and his wife and within a couple hours we struck a deal!   That only thing that didn’t go smoothly was the Dominos pizza Mike noshed on while pricing out the collection. He also paid a hefty price for that choice, but not as much as we paid Steve to help him take care of his son! 

Michael, Pennsylvania  Mar 2024

While February was close to a record setting month for us, March started out even stronger. Michael called us with a vintage collection including a run of Mantles. What a pleasant surprise when we saw one of the early Mantles was a signed, 1952 Berk Ross. Mike and a member of his staff were on the road less than 48 hours after the initial call. If you have a high value collection you’d like to sell, please keep us in mind for lightning fast service and payment.

Dave, New Jersey Feb 2024

Dave called us with an AWESOME collection of Vintage High End Wax Boxes and Cases. We’re talking boxes of 1980-81 Topps Basketball, 1-1/2 cases of 1984-85 OPC Hockey Wax, Boxes of 85-86 Topps Hockey Wax, 4 Cases of 1984 Fleer Baseball and much, much more. Dave told us to bring a 20 ft truck and a mountain of cash. We said ‘hell ya’. Mike headed down to Dave’s on a Sunday morning with 3 of his staff. They finished loading the truck after dark. Mike headed home with the goods and Dave was sitting pretty with a six figure pay day.

Matt, New York Feb 2024

Matt was a comic dealer for years. When he decided to sell his MASSIVE inventory, he called us. Mike and his staff drove up in a BIG truck and loaded up over 30,000 raw books and over 5,000 graded books. Matt was super organized and had all his inventory stored on racks. What a pleasure. Thanks Matt.

Chuck got in touch with us about his GPK collection. A couple complete runs of GPK unopened boxes from Series 1 through Series 15. He also had over 15K GPK singles from all series.

Jim had a huge collections of sets and star cards from the 50’s to the present AND a boat load of early to mid 80’s wax boxes. 5 pallets of cards. No collection is too large for “Mighty” Mike. He met Jim, spent 2 days going through his awesome collection. A deal was struck and money was wired directly in to Jim’s account (his choice of payment). Mike loaded the truck and off he went.

Wayne came to us with a dilemma, 3 kids about to start college and his wife wanting more space in their house!

Rich Chicago, July 2023

Rich contacted us about his amazing collection on a Monday afternoon. By Monday evening, we had a deal. On Saturday, Mike flew out to Chicago to meet Rich at the National to make the exchange. Rich had some very high end graded cards like a 1948 Leaf Ruth PSA 7, 1957 Topps Mays PSA 8, 1966 Topps Mantle PSA 8.5 and many others. As the picture indicates, another happy client.

Denis, CA July 2023

Denis had the finest St. Louis Cardinal collection we’ve seen. Pretty much every Cardinal card made sone 1909. Thousands of autographed cards. Mike was on a plane within a few days to pick up the collection. It was 115 degrees in Denis’s town but they didn’t stop the road warrior from his appointed rounds.

John called us with an amazing collection of registry sets. A run from 1957 to 1977. Over 15,000 graded cards in all. We spent over 100 hours, at our expense, helping John organize and catalog his collection before we made the purchase

Allen, IL April 2023

When we talk about original equipment, Allen comes to mind. All of Allen’s collection consists of cards from packs he opened as a kid. From 1951 Bowmans to 1954 Red Mans. He put these away in the back of a toy truck and there they sat for 70 years. Since much of his collection was high value, we suggested he grade some of his cards to get maximum value. We walked Allen through the SGC submission form and he was off to the races.

Harvey, NY March 2023

Harvey called us with a few high value items. A Babe Ruth autograph ball and a Namath Rookie graded PSA 8. Mike hit the road with some cash and bank checks and made Harvey’s day.

Rick, Tampa Feb 2023

Rick contacted us about his collection of high value 33 Goudey’s. We advised him to grade the Ruth’s and the Gehrigs before we made an offer to maximize his value. He did and was very pleasantly surprised by the graded and our offer. Mike made a quick trip to FL to make the deal

 In 2023 we’ll be back on the road spending even more!  Stay safe and healthy in 2023

John, Chicago October 2022

John found a stack of musty cards buried in an attic in a house he was cleaning out.  He had idea what they were or if they had any value.  He called Mike and we went through every card he found – they were our favorites T206 and T205 cards!  A nice stack of roughly 130! 

At first glance condition was pretty poor to fair with a few maybe VG, didn’t seem like anything spectacular…until we turned them over and saw some of the rare backs!  Lenox, Broad Leaf, El Principal De Gales…Wowsa!  Mike appraised the collection at $20,000 and made his way to Chicago with a wad of $15,000.  To say John was happy is an understatement, he had contacted at least a half dozen buyers and the next highest offer was about 40% less he said! 

Bill, October 2022

Picked up an amazing assortment of sets, player card assortments (binders full of up to 100s of the same star player) that started in 1952.  Mikes first trip to IN was well worth it for us and the wonderful Brother’s family, both retired school teachers, this was Bills life long collection.  Mike flew to IN and carefully went through every card to make sure we valued the collection appropriately. After two days we loaded up and headed home!  Great people are harder to find then great collections it’s amazing when we find both!  One of the best perks for us is helping the awesome people we meet doing this! 

Dan, NYC August 2022

THIS is what makes our job so much fun!  We get to meet GREAT people like Dan G. who called us with an incredible collection featuring THE Holy Grail of card collecting – a 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle Rookie. There were some other goodies as well, like a 1936 R312 Joe DiMaggio Rookie, a 1939 Playball Ted Williams Rookie, a 1939 Playball Joe DiMaggio Rookie and so much more!  Mike did the house call after working with Dan to ensure we paid the highest amount possible.  Mike met Dan for bagels in the morning before going carefully through each and every card Dan collected over the last 40+ years!  Meet great people, treasure hunt with them through TONS of Key Rookies and other vintage cards & share a bagel and lox breakfast?  Life is good!  Thanks, Dan!  

David, FL July 2022

Anyone who collects sports cards knows about the T206 Honus Wagner card which recently sold for a record $7+ MIllion dollars recently!  T206 cards are the gold standard for turn of the century baseball cards, finding them in small groups is hard enough, but when David called us with over 1000+ including over 150 Hall of Famers, and 60 of the rare Old Mill backed Southern Leaguers our jaws literally dropped! (16) Ty Cobb Rookies, (7) Cy Youngs. (16) Nap LaJoie’s many in High Grade?  Wowsa! But, since the cards were a gift from his grandfather, David was reticent to part with them…but after working with us for a few months, he felt comfortable the cards were going to a good home. The big fat payment we provided helped move him along. David had shopped the cards to a number of dealers, we not only offered the most (by far according to David), we offered more than he expected.

Rory, CA June 2022

Rory had a nice collection of Tobacco cards. About 200 graded and 200 raw. Some high end players like Cobb, Johnson, Joss, Lajoie, Young and Mathewson. He contacted a number of dealers and had some unusual responses. One company asked him to send all the cards to them upfront and they would then make an offer. Another asked for pics of all 200 graded cards. Several didn’t respond. After considering the offers, Rory went with ours. We paid him, in full, with certified funds. The cards didn’t leave his hands until he got paid.

Tom, NJ May 2022

Tom and his sons collected for over 50 years and had one of the largest amounts of vintage Football sets we’ve ever seen!  Dozens of sets starting in the 1930s and ending in 2019! From National Chicle cards to Mahommes and everything in between! Off grade T206 cards and dozens of partial sets starting 1948 Bowman. 10,000s of auto and Relic cards. The collection took over a dozen truckload trips. Mike worked tirelessly to help Tom maximize value. We paid Tom over $300,000 – easily exceeding what Tom expected.

“Mike is a special man.  My family and I are so grateful we found him.  I can’t speak higher about his honesty, integrity and thoroughness.  Mike treated our family collection as though it was his own.  We are so grateful we found him!”  Tom O.

About Baseball Card Market

My partners (Jeff Weisenberg and Mike Parness) and I have been buying card collections for a combined 100+ years. Over those years, we’ve bought some very large and complex collections worth many millions. We can help you maximize the value of your collection. In some cases, that means getting your high dollar value cards graded before you sell them.

We are different from many other dealers because of our capital base. We don’t need to sell a collection at a discount in order to get the money to buy another collection. We sell cards for retail. We never flip a collection to another dealer. Almost 100% of our buyers are collectors. That allows us to pay more for collections. It is very rare that another dealer will outbid us, but we encourage you to get multiple offers. Competition keeps us sharp.

If you have a large, valuable collection, we can come to you. We can wire money to your account or bring you a certified check. If you have cases of cards, we’ll bring a truck and do all the loading.

We’ve bought collections from many large collectors, dealers and even closeouts from major card companies. To my knowledge, all have become satisfied customers. Referrals are a good part of our business and we work hard to keep them coming.

We have locations in NY/NJ, MA, FL and seasonal in CA. My partner, Mike, travels all over the US for large deals.

Please note, at this time, we are only buying large collections. We do not buy 1980 - 2020 Baseball, Football or Hockey cards that are not graded.

I look forward to working with you.
