Beware of Second Rate and Off-Brand Services
But It Is Graded We receive dozens of inquiries for evaluating collections every week and many of them include collections with cards that are not graded by the "Big-3." By the "Big-3," we mean Professional Sports Authenticator (PSA), Sportscard Guaranty (SGC) and Beckett Grading Service (BGS and BVG). There are dozens of "other" grading companies and some of them are better than others. Some should be embarrassed to even suggest that they are "grading" cards. One of the most
Grading Your Cards Can Eliminate Stress When Selling
A few months ago we were contacted by a gentleman who was looking to sell a group of vintage cards. The group consisted of mostly stars from the 60's – Mantle, Mays, Bench – and a Nolan Ryan rookie.

We love writing about and sharing the details of the collections that we find, the collections that find us and about many of the collections that we buy. The stories behind many of these collections are often even more exciting than the collection. But Just Collect doesn't just buy cards and collections from the public, we also buy at cards trade shows and at major conventions and on the Internet from eBay and national dealers. Many people probably don't even realize that we
