With 777 lots this month, we’re offering an outstanding selection of both vintage and modern cards, and we are also very pleased to be offering the second part of a significant collection of vintage autographs in the form of signed index cards and postcards, signed photographs, signed baseballs, cut signatures, prints, and posters. The are 257 PSA 10 Gem Mints, including 36 desirable Pop 1s, as well as dozens upon dozens of low pops, Pop 2s, Pop 3s, and Pop 4s. As usual, there is also a superb selection of BGS 10 Pristines and BGS 9.5 Gem Mints. We have 155 different Derek Jeter cards, plus 158 different rookie cards, with far too many autographs, refractors, and insert cards to count here.

The original internet auction spirit is thriving at Small Traditions. We are a unique online sports and Americana auction company that conducts monthly auctions with the following advantages to both our buyers and our sellers. Our Monthly Masterpieces Plus events feature:

  • 0% Selling Fee for Consignors
  • Free Card Grading & Reviews with PSA & BGS
  • $1 Starting Bids on All Lots
  • Absolutely No Reserves on All Lots
  • Free Shipping on All Lots

Consigning with Small Traditions is easy. Simply mail us your material, and we’ll list it in our next monthly auction. A couple of weeks later, we’ll send you a check for 100% of the final bid price.

  • Why give eBay and PayPal over 11% of your profits when you can consign to us for free?
  • And why consign to other auctions when they charge 10-20% and take 30-45 days to pay?
  • Why sell your cards in raw condition and let someone else profit from grading them?
  • Why pay expensive grading rates when we’ll submit your cards at our bulk rates for free?
  • And why trust anyone else to grade your cards when we’ll fight for the grades you deserve?

Grading is not a simple process, but it is a process at which we excel. How else could we offer so many PSA Gem Mint 10s and BGS 10 Pristines month after month? We want to maximize the chances of your cherished collectibles realizing their highest possible prices because we work for a flat fee, a 15% buyers premium that we add to all final bids. We use our professional experience and the partnerships we’ve developed with our grading companies to earn our consignors the grades their cards deserve, and we achieve our prices with the help of the hobby’s most compelling descriptions for our higher end lots, the hobby’s highest resolution images, new and creative advertising campaigns every month, and a verified user base comprised of committed collectors, dealers, and aggressive investors from all over the world.


Finally, Small Traditions also provides free web store listings in which consignors can keep their material in their possession until it sells, and we are also developing a network of collecting blogs at,,, and more. In the spirit of The Topps Company’s long-time wax pack redemption programs and other contests, we also conduct weekly and monthly giveaway promotions through both our Facebook and Twitter pages, and we regularly award significant cash giveaways for reaching new milestones on these sites and in our monthly auctions. Register today for a chance to win a $500 bidding credit, and don’t ever hesitate to contact us with any questions or suggestions. Our auctions are your auctions.
