It's been a busy few weeks for us here at Just Collect. We've been getting ready for The National (which is next week!), we just came back from a buying trip out in California, we're in the process of completely re-designing our website, and we still have our weekly eBay auctions to attend to! It’s been so busy, we even had to hire two new employees! While all that was going on though, we still found the time to meet with a few locals who wanted their collections appraised. We ended up buying a really neat collection, which we're happy
After turning 36 recently, I’ve been told a few times by my younger brother and sisters that I’m now considered "vintage." And by no means did I ever imagine back in 1986, for example, that the 35-cent pack of Topps baseball cards I craved would be considered vintage right alongside me. Life has a way of poking you in the side every once in a while. Here at Just Collect, we received that figurative poke in the side recently and decided to expand our business to include what we like to term "modern vintage", as well as modern trading

At this point, we knew she had a valuable collection and we wanted to
Before you try to sell the cards yourself on eBay, and before you contact a big auction house to consign your PSA graded set, get an offer from Just Collect first. The idea is simple. You want to sell your cards, you want to get paid now, and you want to get the most money possible. And there's really only one way that can happen. The simplest way to sell your collection is to Just collect. We start by providing you with a free appraisal. We go through your set, card-by-card, and evaluate the current market value of each one.
I was ten years old in 1987. And if I ever run into ten year old me, I don’t know how I would break it to him that his 1987 Topps baseball wood-paneled treasures wound up becoming worth close to nothing. Worth close to nothing to everyone but me, of course.
