Sell Your Sports Cards

Have you ever wondered, "What are my baseball cards worth"? Cardboard Picasso is always interested in buying rare sports cards and memorabilia. Do you have vintage sports cards of stars and hall of fame players or modern cards of superstars that are serial-numbered, autographed, or rare in some other fashion? If so, we are interested. 

You can now answer the question that you have pondering for decades: Are my sports cards worth anything? 

Unfortunately, during the 1980's and 1990's, the card companies overproduced many cards which ended up resulting in the majority of them having very little value (unless professionally graded with a "gem mint" designation). In most cases, we are not able to buy these cards because the cost for you to ship them may be more than the value of the cards. We don't buy overproduced cards, reprints, fakes, or altered cards (cut, colored, etc.). 

Before you go through the process of documenting your collection, you should first visit CARDS WE BUY to ensure you have a collection that has value. Unfortunately, many collector's cards from the 80's and 90's are virtually worthless. 

How Do I Get Started Selling My Cards?

1. Identify that you have cards or memorabilia that Cardboard Picasso will have interest in by comparing your collection to the "Cards We DO BUY" examples. If you find that the majority of your cards are on the "Cards We Don't Buy List", you may want to host a garage sale or start an Etsy shop to see if you can get some interest that way. Unfortunately, we will not be able to buy them. 

2. Fill out the form below and follow the instructions in the form. 

3. Take photos of as many of the key cards/memorabilia as possible and attach the photos to your email. Placing the cards on a scanner will give you the highest quality photos. However, if you don't have a scanner, you can take photos using your phone. If you don't know how to attach photos to an email, you can text the photos to 972-616-4547 and reference your name and email in the text. You will want to include pictures of the most notable cards such as vintage Mickey Mantle, Willie Mays, etc. Sending pictures will give us a better idea of the condition of the cards which is critical to determine the approximate value of the card. If you are not able to provide pictures, it is not a "deal breaker". However, providing pictures will give us a better opportunity to asses your collection. 

How Do You Get Paid?

After you send us the email with the relevant information, you will be contacted within 2 business days. If you have questions prior, you can contact us at 972-616-4547. 

Regarding what to expect for your cards, it varies upon the cards condition. It is easy for us to give you a quote if your cards are professionally graded by a reputable grader. If not, we will need to asses the cards in person to identify their condition (pictures typically don't show surface wrinkles, etc.). 

After we have a phone call to discuss your collection, we will identify which cards are a possible match for Cardboard Picasso inventory. You will be asked to send the cards to our address (make sure you require a signature confirmation on receipt). After inspection, we will make you an offer for the cards we are interested in based on their condition. If you are selling graded cards, you will be paid as soon as we receive the cards and confirm they are properly graded and not unethically inserted into a higher-grade case (card will be sent back to you if this is the case).

If you accept our offer, we will send you money via paypal or a certified check (your choice). If you decline our offer, we will send the cards back to your address on our dime (with a signature confirmation). 

Rest assured, we have 100% feedback on Google and all of our other sales channels. If doing business via Paypal, there are also additional protections for both the seller and the buyer to ensure both parties are holding their end of the bargain. 

We look forward to working with you and hopefully putting lot of money in your pocket!
