List For Free In Our Small Traditions Web Store
Open round the clock, we welcome you to a completely reimagined and reinvented Small Traditions Store, where consignors can now list their best items for free, long before we later “flip” them to our auction. Once listed in our store, we will further promote these items in complimentary Buy-It-Now eBay listings under our 15-year-old Highest Rated Seller Account so that the whole world will know about your consigned items by the time they head to auction. We also invite you to consider the STs Store as a free, online home for treasured items from your personal collection. All we require are high-resolution images along with prices that YOU set. Items remain in your possession, and should a sale occur, our fee is a modest 10%.
Grade & Authenticate At No Cost With PSA, PSA/DNA, BGS, SGC & JSA
Certified third-party grading is an expensive and delicate process that typically adds multiple factors of value to properly handled and selected cards. In the grading process, experienced professionals scrutinize every square millimeter of both surfaces of a card, and even a pixel-sized print dot can lower a card’s final grade. A simple smudge from a fingerprint can lower a grade a full level, and the tiniest imaginable nicks and scratches from handling can impact a grade even more.
Use your discretion to select 10 to 100 of your best “raw” or ungraded cards to submit to Small Traditions, and we’ll use our expertise to further screen them for grading with PSA, SGC, and/or BGS, the hobby’s leading third-party certification companies. We’ll consult before and after the grading process to discuss your expectations and to ensure not just your satisfaction with the process but also your understanding of its many challenges. After initial consultation, we’ll then do the delicate work of sorting and preparing your cards for grading. We’ll pay to ship them off, we’ll pay to grade them, we’ll pay to ship them back, and we’ll pay to auction them. We will pay for all charges up front and then deduct only your bulk discounted grading fees after the completed auction of your items. This service is entirely free. You keep 100% of the final bids placed on your items.
Collection Management Service: Grade & Auction Your Entire Collection for 10-20%
Small Traditions is pleased to promote our Collection Management Service, a consultation and asset liquidation program aimed at maximizing the sales value of groups of cards in excess of 10 to 100. Whether your collection consists of 200 cards or 200,000, instead of selling it for far less than its potential market value — sometimes far less, as most dealers will usually pay at most 60-65% of book value for cash deals (but more often as low as 25%) — we’ll organize your entire collection, identify candidates for grading, auction off the graded cards, and then sell the leftovers in detailed groups. This labor intensive process typically increases the value of the collections with which we work by multiple factors. Instead of earning $10,000 for your collection, for example, our hard work will earn you $20,000 to $30,000, or more, all at a modest cost of just 10-20% of your sales, depending on the size of your collection.
