Selling your vintage sports card collection can seem difficult, but our job is to make it easy for you.

Why choose OTIA Sports?

  • We pay people more for vintage (pre-1975) sports cards than any other company in the United States. We spent over 4 million dollars purchasing personal collections in 2018.
  • You will receive your cash, check or PayPal payment immediately.
  • We will buy the entire collection. No cherrypicking your best cards and leaving you with the rest to deal with.
  • We have over 20 years of experience purchasing collections, along with the best technology, people and equipment available to help us determine the value of your collection.
  • All of our offers are good for 30 days. This gives you time to shop around if you wish, and see for yourself that our offer is the highest.

How can you pay more than any company in the country?

We have a small staff, keep our business expenses as low as possible and we are selective about the collections we purchase.

Our Simple Process:

1) Describe your collection via email, phone call or any of the social media messaging platforms. These questions are most important to answer:

  • An estimate of how many total cards in your collection.
  • What percentage of the collection is pre-1975?
  • What (if any) complete sets do you have?

A list of all items in your collection is not necessary, but if you have a list please send it to us.

2) Send us a few pictures of your collection. You can fit many cards into one picture by spreading them out. Focus on the oldest cards in your collection. Pictures can be sent to mike@otia.com or via text message to (248) 520-5776.

Start with these pictures:

  • At least one picture of the entire collection so we can see the size of the collection.
  • One picture of the most valuable items in the collection (in your opinion).
  • Photos of your pre-1975 star player cards.

3) Submit an asking price.

  • We meet or exceed asking prices every day. The time and effort involved in accurately pricing a large collection can be rigorous, and asking prices allow us to make sure we are in the same general price range before we proceed.

Many collections can be shipped to us, which eliminates the hassle of scheduling, traveling or transportation. If you have a large collection that is impractical to ship, we will drive or fly to you and handle the transportation. We also regularly conduct buying trips in different regions of the country, where we schedule appointments to view and purchase collections.

Cards from 1985-1995 are usually worth under 1 cent per card. These cards cost more for us to sell than they are worth. We will not buy them if they are the only cards in your collection, but we will still buy them if your collection also contains vintage cards. We typically donate 1985-1995 cards to a local organization if we acquire them as a part of a collection that also has vintage items.

We believe firmly that a collection should not be “cherry-picked”. If you wish to sell your entire collection, we will buy your entire collection. Do not allow someone to only purchase your best cards and leave you with the rest to deal with.

If you know someone that has a collection of sports cards and memorabilia they would like to sell, send us their contact information along with a note that you are hoping to receive a finder's fee for this transaction. If we end up purchasing the collection, you will receive 10% of the purchase price in cash (up to $100,000).

Our offer is good for 30 days. If you receive a better written offer for your collection, we will either beat it or tell you that offer is too good to pass up!

We want you to receive the best price for your unique collection. We are extremely confident that we will provide the highest cash offer you can find, but you have time to shop around if you wish. Our offer stands when you return.
