Here’s the Fine Print about shipping cards to us for final appraisal and approval

1. Graded Sports Cards & Memorabilia is a full-time retailer founded in 1986. We are purchasing cards for resale.

2. Dealers typically pay up to approximately 40-65% of SMR, (the PSA Sports Market Report Price Guide) book value for graded cards in PSA 8 NM-MT to PSA 10 GEM MINT condition or equivalent.

Dealers also usually pay up to 40% of Beckett Price Guide value for NM/MT (pack fresh) ungraded cards, 20% for ungraded EX-MT condition and 10% for ungraded VG-EX or less.

Some cards from 1969 or earlier and some Hall of Famers may command a premium in top condition.

3. Ungraded cards should be sorted and separated by year and card number within each set. If we have to sort the cards to appraise them then that requires time which can diminish our ability to offer full value for your collection.

4. Appraisals for large quantities of graded or ungraded cards, or for any group including commons may take in excess of 5 business days depending on how many other collections are also received and in the appraisal process at the same time.

5. An informed customer is our best customer. We don’t want to make a single purchase from you unless you are happy with the deal as we want you as a lifetime customer and we strive to be the company that you will be proud to refer your friends and relatives to.

6. Payment is made via check or PayPal within 3 business days or less once a final sale agreement has been reached.

7. We always pay free return shipping to you for any cards on which we cannot reach a purchase agreement.
