It’s been a busy few weeks for us here at Just Collect. We’ve been getting ready for The National (which is next week!), we just came back from a buying trip out in California, we’re in the process of completely re-designing our website, and we still have our weekly eBay auctions to attend to! It’s been so busy, we even had to hire two new employees! While all that was going on though, we still found the time to meet with a few locals who wanted their collections appraised. We ended up buying a really neat collection, which we’re happy to share with you.
You may or may not remember that story on the CBS New York news a few months ago, where a man found a bunch of Babe Ruth cards hidden in his apartment wall. The story is quite interesting, and I was asked to provide some insight on the newly found treasure trove. So, the news station came and interviewed me, which you can see at the end of the story. Pretty cool! Well, if that wasn’t enough, a woman from New York had watched the news that night and decided to give us a call. She had a collection of old baseball cards from her late husband. Coincidentally enough, she had just started to do her own research on the collection, and knew that they were pretty valuable, but she was hesitant to do anything because she didn’t know who to trust. But after seeing us the on news that night, she gave us a call and spoke to our head specialist. A few weeks had passed, and she finally gave us a call back. This was a big deal for her, so we don’t blame her for doing her due diligence.
