The Baseball Card King is interested in buying your collection!

We are in need of pre-1980 singles and sets of Baseball, Football, Basketball, and Hockey cards.

We do most buying at our Plainfield store and select buys at Oak Lawn.

PLEASE NOTE:  Due to the massive overproduction of cards from the 1980’s through the early 2000’s we are not interested in cards from this era.  Even stars and rookies from this period are generally valueless because of their over supply.  The few exceptions, very few indeed, are near impossible to sell anyway.


Those interested in selling their cards should contact us to schedule an appointment to view your collection. We do not in any way quote “BUY” prices over the phone as there are many factors involved. We ask that you make an appointment rather than just walk in with your cards so that we can dedicate time to you as our foot traffic can get heavy during peak times. Also your privacy is important to us.

Special notice regarding autographed memorabilia...

We are an experienced autograph dealer and will not even consider buying or trading for autographed items unless they're accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity from a reputable company.  If you do not have a COA, you may bring your items to us for inspection and authentication ($10-$40/item).
