Sell Your Collection


We've run into a wide range of people and collections over the last 30 years. Although Lenhart Collectibles is known for buying vintage sports cards and especially vintage baseball cards, we are also extremely interested in buying non-sports cards, too!  

Every collection and every collector is different and we treat EVERY collection with the respect and attention that we show for our own collections. We understand that many have put their heart and souls into building their collections. So when you're ready to sell, we understand the feelings you're going through and will work with you to help you reach a decision that is a WIN/WIN, because if you're not happy, we're not happy.

Whether you have vintage cards or modern wax you want to sell, you can reach out to us any time! 

Free Vintage Card Appraisals

If you have made the decision to let go of your old sports card collection, or have inherited a collection from a loved one... we'll take care of you.

We have three ways of evaluating collections for a free appraisal:


The easiest and most common way that we can review your collection is sending us digital scans or photographs of your cards. Any digital camera, smartphone, or flatbed digital scanner would work for these purposes.

Send Them To Us

Ship them to us with return shipping guaranteed. We buy hundreds of collection through the mail each year. Box your cards up, send your collection to us and we will gladly take a look at them for you for free. If you choose not to sell them we will ship them back at no charge!

In Some Cases.... We Come To You

Lenhart Collectibles can and will travel to meet with you and appraise your cards when the items available are “the right deal” for both of us, and the cost-benefit of time, travel and the collection warrants.

The appraisal process starts with sharing your list of card inventory, indicating cards you wish to sell. You should include as much information about the collection as possible. The year of issue, card issuer/manufacturer, size (i.e., individual cards or complete sets), key player names, condition descriptions and any other data that describes what you wish to appraise.

We then inspect and evaluate your cards. We’ll analyze them for condition, hobby-market demand, and appraise them for the current market retail value. The actual value of your collection may vary from those printed in card pricing guides, due to trends and market fluctuations and that those books are exactly that, “a guide” not what cards are selling for or have sold for.

Our appraisal services are available to you free of charge, and begin with an email titled "We come to you, collection for sale"

Once you've reached out via email, we will walk you through the appraisal process answering any questions you might have. A specialist will provide a wealth of knowledge to help you understand your collection.
