About Mile High Card Company
Since being established by Brian Drent in 1996, Mile High Card Company has risen to heights that rival the Rocky Mountains that surround their southern Denver metropolitan headquarters that sits a mile above sea level. Widely recognized as one of the industry’s preeminent auctioneers and sellers of high-grade vintage sportscards, Mile High is a leader in the fast-paced and ever-changing landscape of high-grade sports rarities. The company is just coming off their highest grossing auction with over $2.8 million in record setting bids.
It is no surprise that with Drent at the helm, Mile High has become a major player in the sports collectibles hobby over the past decade. His lifelong fascination and passion for sports and high-grade cards is palpable to anyone he deals with. When he’s not buying or selling cards, he is sure to be found enjoying his other passions – playing basketball, skiing and spending time with his wife, Michelle and their daughters, Emersyn, Taytam and Meryn. Along with the passion, integrity and customer service that clients of Drent and Mile High have come to expect, the company also offers a computerized “want list” service, graded card auctions, outright sales, a competitive consignment program and an appraisal service. “We are a full-service dealer and we are very well aware that collectors have a multitude of options to chose from when buying or selling cards,” says Drent. “That is why we are committed to dealing with our clients in the most professional and discreet manner.”
Offering a comprehensive selection of high-grade vintage 1888 to 1970 baseball cards, as well as an extensive selection of football and basketball cards, the company also maintains a strong presence in the hobby by advertising in numerous publications and attending most major trade shows. They are committed to providing their clients with an ever-expanding selection of items in both their auction offerings as well as their day-to-day sales.
