All Vintage Cards Is Always Buying - Top $$ Paid

As a part of improving our flow of inquiries (we get a lot of emails), we put together this comprehensive buy list to help collectors distinguish whether All Vintage Cards is a good fit as a partner in monetization. 

If it's not here, it doesn't mean your cards are worthless.

These are just the items we are looking to add to our inventory. Note that sometimes for special items, an auction can be a good way for monetization, something we can certainly help with in referring you to one of our vintage auction partners

Note. We are primarily buying vintage cards from 1969 and older.

With that said, our major focus right now in terms of buying is 19th Century, PRE-WAR Tobacco, Early Gum, Caramel and Exhibit Cards.  

Big time early stars such as Cobb, Wagner,  Mathewson, Walter Johnson etc. 

Typically the older, the better

A full list is listed below, so the above highlights are not everything we are buying...

There are some exceptions to that pre-1969 rule as listed below (aka Brady and Jordan rookies) but if you write to us about other cards from 1970's to present, there's a high likelihood we will not return your inquiry. 

Sad to say, but nearly all of the cards from the mid to late 1970’s, 1980's and 1990’s were produced in massive quantities and hard for us to resell at a profit.
