We will also buy complete sets from 1985 and older, plus any Reprint or Archives Sets. If you have sports magazines or books to sell, please see our article on selling magazines.

Dean's Cards can usually pay more for vintage card and memorabilia collections simply because what we buy goes directly into our own online inventory of 750,000 cards. In fact, quite a few card shop owners who buy collections will regularly send them to us - knowing that they will make a nice margin on the cards.
