SportsCardLink will soon be launching SportsCardLink Auctions, which will have a bit of a different structure. We already have received extremely impressive material on consignment for our inaugural Featured Auction of Sports Cards and Sports Memorabilia. The event will be held in January 2011, and we are still accepting consignments and dishing out generous cash advances for this auction. It is, quite frankly, shaping up to be a blockbuster event! To inquire about selling within this auction, call Josh Nathanson or Douglas Gillock at 718-246-0400. SportsCardLink is a full service exchange and brokerage house for vintage, investment quality sports cards.
Our mission is to bring buyers and sellers of vintage sports cards the most comprehensive and secure buying and selling environment in the industry. We pride ourselves on our vast experience in the collectibles industry, extensive client base of collectibles buyers, and a reputation for honesty, integrity and professionalism. Though the web site is automated for your convenience, customer service is a top priority and the SportsCardLink staff is accessible to answer your questions throughout every weekday.
SportsCardLink functions similar to our sister company, ComicLink. Established on the Internet in 1996, ComicLink is well-known throughout the collectibles industry for enabling sellers to obtain record-breaking prices and for bringing buyers a wide selection of the best vintage items for their collections. As many collectors know, there is considerable crossover between the sports card and comic book industry, and over our 14 years in business we have nurtured strong relationships with many clients that buy and sell both vintage comic books and vintage sports cards. We are proud to offer the following sports card services:
The Internet Sports Card Exchange TM, also referred to as the For Sale section, works like the stock market – it is a bid/ask system where sellers list available items at a set asking price. Interested buyers can either place a buy order at the asking price in order to secure the desired item or submit a bid (that is, make an offer below the asking price) in hopes that the seller is willing to negotiate. An order is filled when item availability is confirmed and both parties agree on price.
Outright Purchase Option
We will also assist sellers that need immediate cash for their graded sports cards or vintage sports card collections by purchasing them outright and issuing immediate payment.
