Small Traditions Consignment Trip and More

In advance of The National Sports Collectors Convention at the end of the month, Small Traditions will be traveling throughout the northeast tri-state area starting next week, meeting with customers and providing free in-home consultations. Please call or write today if you’d like to schedule a meeting.

Take advantage of our best grading deal ever: completely free grading with PSA, SGC, or BGS on cards valued $500 and up at this summer’s National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago. Small Traditions is accepting consignments of graded sport and non-sport cards as well as a certified memorabilia.

Please call or write to make arrangements as soon as possible.  Less than two weeks remain to consign to our 6th Annual Summer Premium Auction. At this point, we are only accepting graded cards from PSA, SGC, and BGS, as well as certified autographs and memorabilia. Please call or write to discuss your potential consignment, and please remember that we have moved to a new address.

We also invite you to consign your raw cards valued $500 and above, which we will grade for free at this year’s National Sports Convention at absolutely no cost to our consignors. To qualify for this offer, all items must be intended for auction listing in our August 2019 Summer Classic event from 8/18 to 8/31.

Finally, we also invite you to consider our Collection Management Service, a consultation and asset liquidation program aimed at maximizing the sales value of larger groups of cards and collectibles in excess of 500 items. Don’t sell your collection for a fraction of its potential value. Call Small Traditions instead.

Our hallmark service, list your treasured collectibles in our premium auctions for no fee whatsoever. That’s right! Our consignors keep 100% of the final bids placed on their items. Submit previously graded or authenticated cards and memorabilia, or take advantage of our popular Cost-Free Grading and Collection Management services described below.

Call 303.832.1975 or write to breathe some new life into your old collections today. Schedule an appointment at our office in the Cherry Creek North business district of Denver, and let us treat you to a burger at the famous Cherry Cricket next store, or schedule an obligation-free, in-home visit. We are very happy to travel to you. It’s the best part of our job!


Grade up to 500 Cards without Spending a Penny Out-of-Pocket

Submit up to 500 of your best “raw” or ungraded cards to our headquarters in Denver, and we’ll do all the work for you. We’ll appraise and filter your cards for legitimate grading candidates, using our background in education to thoroughly explain the many details and challenges of the grading process and to provide a reasonable groundwork for your expectations. We’ll sort and prepare your cards into the appropriate grading submission service levels. We’ll verify and communicate the results, working our best to ensure your complete understanding of the outcome in order to meet or exceed your expectations. Best of all, we’ll pay all the expensive grading fees up front, subtracting them at discounted rates only after your successful auction sales. Certified third-party grading is an expensive and delicate process that typically adds multiple factors of value to properly handled and selected cards. Don’t sell your collection for a quarter of its potential value, and don’t throw away money by mishandling your cards. Let the experience of Small Traditions, LLC work for you.
