Just Collect 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 of one another, basically conducting interviews (and rightfully so). We were asking him what years his cards are from and his highlights, he’s asking about our appraisal process. We’re asking him about the condition of his cards, he’s asking us if we travel to buy collections. And so on. After about ten minutes of going back and forth, he had realized that we were the real deal, and we realized that he was definitely interested in selling – so we needed to get the process started right away. Turns out this card fanatic has been collecting cards religiously since the 1960s, and now had over 2500 of them in his collection.
Ok, let’s take a look at the highlights:
- 1934 Goudey Loug Gehrig PSA 4
- 1940 Play Ball Shoeless Joe Jackson PSA 4
- 1940 Play Ball Joe DiMaggio PSA 4
