Albersheim’s Pre-National Sale – See Us In Chicago

Albersheim’sis having one final sale before we leave for the National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago. You can visit us at BOOTH 540 – Which will be held at the:  Donald E Stephens Convention Center- Rosemont IL 60018 – August 3-7, 2011.   We also wanted to let everyone know that you can check out our latest updated inventory (at anytime by going to our website) at   If you can’t make it to the show or don’t want to spend thousands of dollars in travel expenses to get there, we’re having a sale to cheer everyone up!!! Since last month’s Make Your Own Offer Sale was such a success, we decided to run it one last time for this year.   What is the – MAKE YOUR OWN OFFER SALE? 

This sale is unlike any other sale we’ve ever rolled out in over 25 years in the business. We are going to let you contact us and make your own offer on our inventory. If we’re in the ballpark; you’ll own it! Now remember, offering $5 or $10 on a $100 item will most likely land your email in the delete pile, but no reasonable offer will be refused. What’s the worst case scenario? You make and offer and we say no?

Now often times over the years, I’ve been asked, “Rich, how do you price your inventory?”

That’s a hard question to answer, but when pricing merchandise there are several factors that go into the equation.

1. What did we pay for it?
2. What does this item sell for on the open market (auction prices – other dealer prices)
3. Supply and demand
4. How much will it cost us to replace this item?
5. How long have we been carrying this piece? (it does cost money to carry inventory)

We expect a ton offers to be coming in, so the better your offer; the more likely the item will end up in your collection. Feel free to email us at or give us a call at 215-665-1953.

This sale will be in effect Wednesday, July 20 – Wednesday July 27 2011. After that, most of our merchandise will be packed up and trucked out to Chicago. Retail Section Links:

Now we want to assure you, that this is not a going out of business sale. I’ve been collecting since 1981 and selling since 1985. I’m addicted to this hobby. However, due to some major collections that we’re currently working on, we may not be running any new sales until the fall (unless we end up coming back with a boatload of new inventory from the National).

Remember, this sale will be in effect Wednesday, July 20 – Wednesday July 27 2011 only. I know I’ll probably get a bunch of calls next summer from collectors who will ask me if I’m going to have the “Make Your Own Offer Sale” again. To answer the question, quite frankly; I don’t know. I might get cleaned out.

So go to the website ASAP and get in on the “MAKE YOUR OWN OFFER SALE”.

BUYING – $$$$$ As a side note, we’re actively looking for game used, trophies, and championship rings in BASKETBALL, football, and BASEBALL. $$$$$$
