Buy and Sell Pre-War Baseball Cards
Dean Hanley is an expert in Pre-War (before World War II) baseball cards and continues to add vintage baseball cards to the Dean's Cards inventory below. Dean literally wrote the book on Pre-War baseball cards, and you can find this best seller on Amazon.com: Before There Was Bubble Gum: Our Favorite Pre-World War I Baseball Cards.
The listings below feature baseball cards for sale from long ago tobacco companies, candy companies -- and the first bubble gum baseball cards, as well. Pre-War Cards have the most value on a per card basis. Although the prices quoted for these cards are typically high, much depends on the condition of the cards. Dean's Cards will purchase these baseball cards in almost any condition. Many of the cards that have survived are not in top condition and this definitely affects the value of the cards.
It is difficult for the collecting novice to determine what years these cards were issued by just looking at the card. Another confusing problem is that most of the pre-war sets have been reissued in the form of reprint (or archives) sets. These sets have been released over the last 15 or so years.
