About Us

Vintage Sports Cards and Certified Sports Memorabilia

From vintage baseball cards featuring Hall of Fame players such as Mickey Mantle and Willie Mays to rookie cards showcasing modern stars such as Aaron Judge, Mike Trout, and Michael Jordan in mint condition, Cardboard Picasso is an online baseball card shop that is an excellent alternative to traditional sports card auction houses. We offer one of the widest selections of Mickey Mantle baseball cards for sale, rare sports card errors, and some of the rarest rookie cards ever! 

You no longer have to wait 7 to 30 days for a baseball card auction to complete or compete against dozen of bidders with no guarantee of winning some of the most valuable baseball cards in the hobby. If you buy directly from Cardboard Picasso, you will receive competitive pricing on professionally graded cards and will not have to pay a 20%-23% buyer's premium which is standard in an auction for rare sports cards. 

We offer free shipping and insurance on sports cards, a generous rewards program that can yield coupons up to $200, a free gift with purchase, 5-star customer service (see our Google reviews), and items certified by the most respected authorities in the hobby-including PSA grading, SGC grading, and Beckett grading.  

Your satisfaction is important to us. We understand that seeing a picture online of a Ted Williams baseball card or Lebron James basketball card isn't quite the same as actually inspecting the sports card in person. This is why we allow returns within 7 days of receiving the item if you are unsatisfied with your purchase.

In addition to accepting major credit cards for purchase, we also offer Paypal as a payment option which gives our customer's additional buyer protection and the ability to pay within six months without accruing interest (see Paypal Credit terms). 

To ensure security and privacy of your financial information, we utilize one of the leading E-Commerce platforms for check-out which adheres to the highest security and compliance standards available. 

We look forward to helping you build your sports card collection and hope you enjoy the store!
