We just bought 400 pounds of vintage graded cards. Yes, you read that right…400 pounds, which is about 2,600 graded PSA, SGC, & BGS cards, worth tens of thousands of dollars, all collected by a single man out in Pasadena, CA. It was the largest collection of graded cards we’ve ever bought, and we couldn’t be more excited. A few months ago, we received a call from a collector out in California, who mentioned that he was interested in selling his collection of cards. This one started out kind of slow, with both of us trying to get a sense

Recently, we had an inquiry through our website from a woman in New York. She had inherited a sports card collection that had been in her family for decades. She contacted us about a “binder full of Play Ball cards”, which she hoping to get an appraisal on, and possibly sell outright. She was able to send us an image of the first binder page, which just so happened to be the first nine cards in the set, that included the coveted #1 Joe DiMaggio card! At this point, we knew she had a valuable collection and we wanted to

War raged in Europe and Asia.  Tensions were taut in other parts of the world.  And baseball reigned in the sports arena in these last few months of peace in the United States. Enter Gum, Incorporated, and its third issue of baseball themed trading cards.  The Philadelphia based confectioner, founded by Jacob Bowman, controlled over 60% of the bubble gum market in that period.  In the late 1930’s, Gum, Inc., added various trading cards to packs of their main product, and in 1939 through 1941, Gum, Inc. issued annual baseball themed series.  The 2-1/2” by 3-1/8” cards were larger than

Honestly, I don't even know where to begin. This collection is so magnificent, that we could spend hours, or even days, awing over every card. It's being referred to as the "Volunteer Collection", as it comes from Knoxville, TN - home of the Volunteers. Dating back decades ago, nestled deep into the valleys of Tennessee, one collector began his journey of assembling an extraordinary collection of vintage Hall of Famers. Today, we're happy to share and be an integral part of his story. The gentleman, who lived just minutes away from the University of Tennessee, began collecting baseball cards during

Everyone seems to have heard a story about how their parents or siblings threw out their childhood baseball card collection.  While these stories are commonplace, such losses helped add to the increased scarcity of vintage baseball cards in the modern day. Recently, Just Collect met with an individual that had a collection that most in the family thought had met the same unfortunate fate.  The gentleman that contacted Just Collect mentioned that this collection had been his father’s and was collected during his childhood in 1941.  At some point, the collection vanished and the thoughts turned to whether it had
