Just a few days remain in 2013 but for one of North America’s most prolific sellers of vintage sports cards, it’s time to crank up, not wind down.
Just Collect Inc. has launched over 10,000 individual listings on eBay, all ending tonight through Sunday, with everything from 1911 Sporting Life to 1930’s Goudey Premiums, classic 1950’s Topps baseball to high end 1980s football rookie cards. Every lot starts with a minimum bid of 99 cents, regardless of book value.
The auction marks the last hurrah of what was a busy year for the New Jersey-based company that is a fixture at major shows around the country each year, and buys hundreds of thousands of cards across the country, primarily via mail.
They do the bulk of their selling via eBay auctions, which turn over each week. The low starting bids and a large email list ensure that most of the cards will change hands when the seven-day period ends.
“We’ve sold over 100,000 vintage singles so far in 2013,” said Just Collect’s Leighton Sheldon. “We have lots of great inventory and holiday time is a great time to sell on eBay.”
Just Collect currently has more cards up for auction than any single eBay seller.
The vast majority of what’s being offered this week are single cards along with a few lots. There are over 100 different 1952 Topps, a total of over 4,800 Topps and Bowman from the 1950’s and 60’s including stars like Mantle, Ryan, Rose and Clemente, rookies, short prints and high numbers and some vintage non-sports cards, which Sheldon says always sell well.
