Don DePouw, Oconto, WI on Sep 12 2014

I have recently sold a collection of early '50's baseball cards to Dean's Cards. The entire process was smooth and seamless. There was a prompt dialog and a fair offer was made. Once a price was agreed to I received a check within a few days. I would recommend Dean's Cards to anyone selling vintage cards.

Frank M on Aug 28 2014

When I decided to sell some of my cards, I knew from their reputation that Deans cards was the place to go. Very quickly they made me a very fair offer and the check arrived promptly. I have decided to sell some more of my collection,, and they're going to Deans.In an age when dealing with government or business can be frustrating,the experience with Dean's cards was very professional. .If you need some quick cash, and are willing to part with some of your collection, Deans has no competition. Highly recommended.

Sam on Aug 27 2014

Recently sold a small vintage collection of The Horrors of War cards to Dean's Cards. I sent the collection off to Dean and got an immediate response with an offer to buy which I believe was fair and reasonable knowing that Dean has to make a profit. We all think our stuff is worth a fortune but Dean took the time to explain and show me the good and bad of my cards. All in all it was a good experience.

Rick on Aug 18 2014

Very professional ; would recommend them highly

Jeffrey Costa on Aug 14 2014

Felt like we were on the same page with supply and demand questions...did not have alot of high quality and desirable cards but Deans Cards made me feel that I wasnt a nuisance with such a small selection. I was treated fairly and compensated well.

Richard on Jun 27 2014

I recently came across a small box of baseball cards (about 500 cards) from the late 50s and early 60s, hidden away in my mother's attic. I contacted Dean and following our initial communications sent the cards to him. In very short order I heard back with an offer. The entire transaction was cordial and professional from beginning to end, Dean answered all my questions quickly, with thorough, logical explanations when an answer might not have been what I was hoping to hear. I would absolutely recommend doing business with Dean, and if another sequestered box of cards should ever show up, Dean will be the first, and probably only dealer I contact.

Having held onto a collection of 1960's Baseball cards for many years, I knew now was the time to sell as all they were doing was collecting dust in my closet. However I quickly learned that when selling, trying to figure out just where to start is not easy. That is when I found Dean's. Knowing that my collection was not in the best of condition but wasn't in bad shape either, I mailed him the cards and had a check within a week. This company was very quick, professional and easy to work with. Dean was in constant communication with me almost daily from the time I inquired to the time the deal was made and then even after to ensure I was satisfied. I will definitely be doing business with them in the future.

Paul Rebeck - Chicago, Ill. on Jun 23 2014

I recently had contacted Dean's Cards in regard to selling some of my sports card collection, mainly my 1960's baseball and football cards. I received a prompt response from Dean, who gave an honest explanation of the procedure he used to purchase the cards, the state of the market for card selling, and a fairly detailed description of his business operation. Each ensuing email inquiry I submitted was quickly responded to in a professional and forthright manner. Shortly after sending my cards to him (within one week), I received a check from him for $225, which I believed to be a fair price for the quantity and quality of cards I had sent. I would recommend Dean's Cards to anyone interested in selling their cards, or at least in investing the procedure of doing so. I would also gladly do business with him in the future if that occasion were to arise.

Doug M. on Jun 15 2014

Dean was up front in which cards he was interested. He gave me a fair price and the process took just a week.

Overton Kuhn on Jun 06 2014

I sold my collection to Dean's Cards recently and was very happy with the results. Dean's made the process very smooth, explained everything with no surprises. I was grateful for their assistance. I felt comfortable and never felt any qualms about the process.

R. Gurtowski on May 28 2014

Great doing business with Dean's cards. Very quick turnaround on payment, satisfied with the value offered, and very responsive on all communication! Highly recommended!!

Dave S. in NC on May 12 2014

I sincerely recommend Dean's Cards to anyone contemplating a sale of their sports cards. My 1966 and 1967 Topps collection held a dear spot in my heart since childhood but a pending move dictated that it was time to part ways. It was a leap of faith to send my collection to someone I had never met but Dean's communication via email and telephone earned my trust. I received a prompt offer from Dean and whilst not an amount that blew me away (a la 1990) it was very fair and acceptable. A few days later my check arrived. You can call me a very satisfied client. Thanks Dean!

Bob on May 09 2014

I sold my 1964 Topps baseball card collection (~325 cards) to Dean. They were in pretty good but not pristine shape. I think I got a fair price after a little negotiating and everything went very smoothly. Satisfied customer!

Lance Parton on May 09 2014

I found Dean's cards on the internet and I must say that I was extremely pleased with their services !!! I was looking to sell about 400 cards in total dating primarily in the sixties and seventies. I shipped my cards with no issues and they received them in two days. I then received a bid the following day so the whole process took less than a week !!! Dean and his team were exceptional and although I only got $130 for my cards they were kinda rough and torn. All in all I just wanted to say that my overall selling experience was fantastic and I was treated fairly, professionally and I would highly recommend Dean's cards as the place to sell your baseball cards. :)

Florida Seller on May 05 2014

Dealing w/ Dean and his team was quick and easy. Very pleasant and professional. If you are interested in selling your cards I suggest that you give Dean a call.

N Ormiston on Apr 30 2014

About a month ago, I contacted Dean's Cards about selling my collection of 1959 to 1965 vintage baseball cards. Within 24 hours I was given the procedures for evaluation. I then shipped my cards to Dean, who promptly made me an offer on my collection. We agreed on the value of the collection and within three days I had a check for $815.00 in my hands. I would recommend Dean's Cards to anyone with a desire to sell their old baseball card collections.

Steve Paz on Apr 21 2014

Recently, I decided to sell my collection. At first I thought eBay, then after looking on eBay, I thought that will take quite a bit of time and probably many headaches. So, I browsed for card dealers on-line and found Dean’s Cards. Right away, I felt that Dean was the guy because he had a simple input form on the home page to quickly determine if there was interest. After I sent my inventory, Dean quickly responded and we were beginning the process. I sent my cards to Dean (86lbs via UPS Ground – I’m in Indianapolis and he is in Cincinnati) and when they arrived Dean quickly notified me that they were received and in good hands! I felt better. After a short time, Dean responded with an offer and after very little give-and-take we agreed to a very fair price. What I did to determine the ‘value’ of my cards (none were graded) was I found similar condition cards on eBay that had bids and simply cut it in half (remember guys a dealer has to make a profit or he won’t be in business very long). And guess what Dean’s price was very close to what I came up with using this method. Dean treated me fairly and was completely honest! Very trustworthy and friendly! My collection included a partial 1956 and 1964 set (all HOF and star cards), complete sets from 1973 through 1985, and many many single star cards from the 1950s through the 1990s (several Mantle/Mays/Aaron/Clemente/Williams and on and on). My collection was not gem mint as I collected these throughout my childhood and young adult life, and I can not say enough times that Dean was right on with the offer! Dean’s cards are ‘the way to go guys’ for liquidation (and purchasing)! Thanks Dean!

Jeff T. on Apr 20 2014

I sold vintage-pre 1970, and complete sets 1976-1985 to Deans. I got an immediate response from my first Email. From my shipping of the cards, to my check for $280, it was two weeks. It was a pleasure to work with this company and would highly recommend them to anybody that is trying to sell a collection. I had a constant flow of Emails, letting me know they got the cards, to when the check was mailed. It was extremely difficult to find a business that would even purchase these cards, or give my a fair price. I donated the remainers to Goodwill for a tax deduction. It feels great to be "card free". Thank you so much Dean for showing me what my collection was worth and purchasing what you could for a fair price.

Ben S. La Pointe, Wisconsin on Apr 08 2014

I received excellent service when contacting Dean's about some 1960's baseball cards. Timely, informative, and thorough communication made our transaction a success. I received a good price and immediate payment after my cards had been sent to Dean. I would absolutely recommend Dean's to anyone interested in selling their vintage cards and look forward to working with them again. A smooth and beneficial experience.

Great experience on Mar 29 2014

When I found a box of 160 baseball cards from 1907 in a storage shed, I had no idea what to do with them. I found Dean's on line and sent off a quick email. To my surprise, I got an almost immediate response. I sent off a list of the cards and held my breath. The cards had belonged to my uncle and they were not in mint condition - they had belonged to a little boy. I am not a collector and knew nothing about the cards. Within 3 weeks, I had a check in my hands - those cards were worth more than I would have guessed. Dean's was professional, communication was excellent and I felt that I was treated fairly throughout the process. I would definitely recommend doing business with Dean's if you have cards to sell. Dorothy G. Carver, MA

Mike Marteney on Mar 11 2014

I admit that I was nervous about the selling process...having to send my cards across the country to someone I've never met in person. Those worries were quickly put to rest as Dean was very open, honest, and very detailed about the process from day one. I ended up sending all of my cards from the 50's and 60's to Dean to see if he wanted to purchase them. It was a lot of cards but included my Clemente rookie card, Willie Mays, Harmon Killibrew, Hank Arron, Satchel Paige, and a few others. They were by no means in perfect condition but Dean still gave me a fair deal . I would not hesitate to do business with Dean again in the future. Class act.

James Lewisville, Texas on Feb 25 2014

I had the enjoyable experience of working with Dean during Feb. 2014. I had approx. 2400 cards to sell, which were Bowman and Topps baseball cards from the 50's and early 60's. Also had some Topps football cards from the 50's, and non-sports cards of Davy Crockett and western tv shows. The entire process worked like clockwork. Everything happened as was stated on Dean's web site. Communication was within a 24 hour period. After I sent my cards in a bid was received within 2 days. We agreed on a price of $1635, which I believe was a very fair price. The check arrived within the promised time. The entire process took just a short 16 days. I would recommend Dean's Cards as a company to buy or sell cards. Every item all along the selling process was handled in a professional manner, and everything that Dean promised, happened. If you have trouble dealing with internet companies, Dean;s Cards is one you can trust.

Steven Smith on Feb 21 2014

I recently sold some vintage sports cards to Dean. I sent pics first and got immediate response back that he was interested. My gut feeling was to trust this company after reading other posts and getting quick replies. I sent in approximately 100 cards, baseball, boxing, and track. They were all tobacco and candy cards from early 1900. Dean offered me $1865.00 for the lot, and being very satisfied with the offer I received a certified bank check a few days later. I recommend Dean's very highly. They are a company you can trust with your collections. I am sure they will go to someone who will enjoy them as I did.

Neil D. - Sykesville MD on Feb 20 2014

I was looking to sell 400 baseball card extras from my mid 60s- collection. A local store wasn't interested and said to sell them on ebay. It was much easier to contact Dean's, get an explanation of their pricing, and mail to their location. Dean's provided advice on shipping, acknowledged receipt of the cards, gave me a quote, and mailed a check to me within a week.

Martha, Boston, MA on Feb 13 2014

I am pleased that I had the opportunity to work with Dean and Elana in January, 2014. I had about 700 baseball cards from the 1960's to sell, including rookie cards for Pete Rose (1963), Tony Perez (1965), Jim Palmer (1966), Johnny Bench (1968), Nolan Ryan (1968) and Reggie Jackson (1969). I owned these when I was a child, and handled them all the time, so they weren't in the best condition. Nevertheless, Dean bought these for $480, a price I consider to be very fair. Dean and Elana promptly responded to my emails, always treated me with respect and impressed me with their knowledge of the market. I was very pleased with the overall experience and I would highly recommend them to other people who are interested in selling their cards.

Dennis - Louisville, KY on Jan 06 2014

I had 7 vintage card collections from the 1950's that I had considered selling on ebay. Then I decided it may be easier to sell them to a dealer. After visiting and studying various websites, I decided to contact Dean's Cards and sent them itemized lists of the cards in my collections. They were very interested in my cards, but needed to see them to determine their value. I was convinced from the professional way they responded to my inquiry, that I could trust them with my collection. They offered to purchase my cards within 2 days after receipt of them. I received $375 for my collection of 485 cards, which ranged from very good to fair condition. I believe Dean's Cards is a very professional and customer friendly company. And recommend them to anyone interested in selling their card collections.

Henry Deibel on Dec 17 2013

I had some cards from childhood from 64-66 in about average condition for age, about 320 cards, sent them to Dean's they checked them out and got back in a few days. Made a offer in about a week for $130, pleased with offer only offered $40 at card store. Nice people to deal with, would recommend

mike austin on Dec 13 2013

After moving to a smaller house I discovered I have a lot of stuff that I don't need. One being my baseball card collection from my childhood. I only bought them for the gum anyway. So after looking on the internet and some e-mails back and forth I decide to sell my cards minus the gum to Dean's cards it was quick and easy not to mention fair. I wonder if they buy old broken down pick up trucks?

Hal W on Dec 03 2013

I sold my collection of Topps Giants to Dean.....had 3 complete sets and almost another. Dean communicated with me very professionally and timely. I made $360 on the transaction and will definitely deal with Dean again.

Bonnie, Lansing, MI on Nov 05 2013

This was my very first experience of selling collectible cards. I do not collect cards, but years ago a friend of mine gave me a collection of non-sports cards -- and recently, I decided it was time to sell. Initially, I was very intimidated, cautious, and distrusting with the process, having never bought, traded, or sold collectible cards. But after several email communications with the company, I felt confident enough to send my collection in for evaluation. I received an email the day my collection was received in the mail by them, and another one within a few days letting me know their offer. Within a week of my acceptance, I had a check for $800 in my hands. The quick, personal responses to emails, combined with the quick turn around time for providing an offer and, ultimately, the check made this transaction painless and easy. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this company to my family and friends. In fact, I already have!

Diane on Oct 31 2013

I received good, quick service. The estimate was made and the check received quickly. The payment was fair for the quality of the 1960s cards.

Richard on Oct 29 2013

Deal went very smooth. I sold some war cards I have had for a while collecting dust. The 315.00 in my pocket felt good.

K Stamm, Marietta, GA on Oct 28 2013

I found a box of football trading cards and contacted Dean's to see if they were interested in purchasing them. The process was explained to me and within a couple of weeks I had a check for them. It was a pleasure doing business with Dean's . . . all of my communications were handled in a professional and timely manner, all my questions were answered in detail, and my entire transaction was handled quickly and efficiently. Thank you!

Craig Haueter, North Canton, OH on Oct 25 2013

I just recently sold Dean my Topps baseball sets from 1976-1985. I found Dean's approach very straight-forward, fair and professional. I would not hesitate to recommend anyone to deal with Dean with their sports cards.

64 year old sells collection on Oct 24 2013

I am a life long collector of baseball, football and non-sports cards. I recently decided to sell my pre 1970 sets and cards of over 7,000 cards. I was hesitant to sell because in February 2009 Mastro Auctions from Chicago area sold my cards, received payment for them, filed bankruptcy and owed me about $7,500 and I never received a penny after constant assurances I would get paid. I have been a buyer from Dean's Cards to fill holes over the last few years and was always impressed with his grading, inventory, and professional approach to the card business. We coordinated to send cards he would want. I had a bid of $5,070 in less than 2 days and received my check in the mail after after 3 business days. Dean's staff was courteous, helpful and took the sting of selling my complete run of 1948-1969 Detroit Tigers and Detroit Lions, along with all 1961-1969 Minnesota Twins and Vikings and my beloved Davy Crockett, Robin Hood, Zorro, Flags and other childhood sets. I highly recommend doing business with them because the pain of selling cards to the wrong people is too much to bare. I heard Mastro now works for another Chicago Sports Memorabilia Auction House. Seller Beware. Happy Collecting. Marty Best

Kevin, New Hartford, NY on Oct 20 2013

Realizing that I was finally prepared to sell at least part of my baseball card collection, I began doing research on possible buyers and quickly came across Dean's Cards. Before contacting Dean, I checked to ensure that he was trustworthy, and not a fictional front for a scam. I double-checked, among other things, his business on ebay, coverage in trade journals, and coverage by the media. It all checked out properly, so I contacted Dean and was consistently impressed by his punctual and frank correspondence. I ultimately sent him a selection of my cards, which included some complete sets of Topps cards from the late 1970s and an assortment of Topps, Bowman, and Red Man Tobacco in various conditions, mostly from the 1950s. These included a number of star cards, including Mantle, Williams, Mays et al. Dean made an offer of $645. I took a couple days to think about this and eventually decided that it was fair. In preparing to sell cards, bear in mind that you also need to prepare to face real market prices, and that Dean's evaluation will probably come in under your expectations. That is normal, because most of us don't spend time in the real market for cards. Fortunately, I had spent several weeks doing some research, so I was able to appreciate the terms of Dean's bid and realize that I did not want to sell my own cards on ebay or drive between local cards shops in New York. After I accepted the bid, I had a check in the mail within less than a week. If you decide that you are ready to sell cards, you should certainly contact Dean. If I decide to sell more cards, I will do so.

Galen Goss on Oct 07 2013

Thanks again Dean for the positive transactions. I appreciate the fair offers and quick payment. Your responses to my concerns and questions were thoughtful, informative and complete. I would definitely recommend you to anyone looking to sell there vintage baseball cards and want a quick,fair and professional transaction. Thanks again, Galen Goss

Mike Lantz on Sep 20 2013

I had a partial collection of Topps Baseball cards that ranged from 1960 – 1968. I also had a very small collection of football cards as well from 1964 – 1967. I did some research to determine what I thought the value of the cards were and what I thought was a reasonable selling price for the entire collection. As most sellers do, I tended to over value the selling price, but in reality, I was not that far off of what Dean was willing to offer. So, I shipped my collection to Dean. Initially, I was a little hesitant, but after talking to them, felt complete comfortable with shipping the collection for them to visually inspect and value the cards. We had some good discussions and compromised on the offer - $740. I was very satisfied with that offer and felt that they treated me as an individual customer with respect and fairness. How was our communication? Through the process, which took about 7 days from the time they received the collection, the communication was very timely and professional. The initial offer was received on about 2 days and we closed the deal about 2 days later. I would highly recommend Dean to anyone interested in selling their card collections. Their team is very knowledgeable, fair and professional. Mike Lantz Perry Hall Md.

Richard S on Sep 16 2013

I sent Dean a small collection of cards from 1949-1950. Even though the cards were damaged from having been taped into a scrapbook many years ago, Dean saw at least some value in them, and I accepted what seemed to me a fair offer of $70 for the collection. I was impressed by the timeliness and the honesty of Dean's correspondence.

Larry Holverson on Aug 14 2013

I sold two sets of NFL Topps chewing gum poster like photos and found Dean Hanley of Dean's Cards very easy to deal with. It was a low number of photos but yet he took the time to help me in a kind and courteous way, I also feel he was more than fair in our transaction. I would highly recommend him and will do all of my business with him in the future. Larry Holverson, Alexandria, MN

Grandpa Hot Rod on Aug 13 2013

I sold my cards to Dean's. I was very happy with the selling process. I am planning on selling more cards to Dean's at a later date.

James Patrick on Aug 12 2013

I recently had such a positive experience in selling some of my trading and baseball cards, that I have collected for over 60 plus years, that I will continue to do business with them. It is sometimes a financial or emotional experience that we go thru on collecting and selling our items and collections. I TOTALLY trust Deans cards that I will send them more in the future! I have other collectibles that I am excited to share with them as well. It makes me feel good that someone else really values what I valued .

Danny Koffman on Aug 12 2013

I had the childhood magical pleasure of assembling a full collection of Topp's 1960 Baseball Cards . . . Yes . . . I also enjoyed the gum in each package. I enjoyed looking at the cards from time to time over the years . . . always "took me back" . . . Fast forward over 50 years and the time had come to simplify my life . . . with all of life's possessions . . . to get the ball rolling and to start the big changes I knew I faced, I sold my collection to Dean. He was fair, he was thoughtful and I am pleased that someone else will soon have a solid collection, lovingly built by me all those years ago.

John in California on Aug 12 2013

Contacted Dean about my childhood baseball card collection. He gave me very honest & forthright information about the value of the cards and what I could expect to get for them. I had a mixture of "average players" and Hall of Famers such as Aaron, Musial, Dryadale, Mantle, Matthews, Berra, Ford, and many more. I sent the cards to Dean, on faith that he would evaluate and get me a quote. In a couple of days, we agreed on a selling price and I had a check within a week. This is the way to do business!

Kari R., Philadelphia PA on Jul 09 2013

Selling my father's baseball card collection couldn't have been easier. Dean was fair and explained in detail the rationale for appraising the cards. It made an overwhelming process streamlined and stress-free.

Gene D. Holbrook, NY on Jul 01 2013

I recently sold a few tobacco cards and found Dean's staff to be very helpful. They were quick to respond to any questions and assisted in any way possible. I received a fair price and they made the process painless. I highly recommend Dean's Cards if you want or need to sell your collection.

Frank Talcik on Jun 20 2013

I recently sold my Topps collection to Dean's Cards. They are really professional and Fair and work quickly with you.

Bob N on Jun 20 2013

Having communicated directly with Dean Hanley, I can state that he is a person of integrity, that he provided excellent communication, and that the agreed to payment for the nice 1955 Bowman set and 1956 Topps set arrived in a timely manner... I would do business with him again.

Jeff El Cajon, Ca on Feb 10 2013

Dean's cards was: -Professional -Honest -Helpful -Experienced It was a pleasure doing business with Dean and his staff! Jeff El Cajon, Ca

Jan 22 2013

Everyone is concerned about submitting their prized cards to someone they have only "met" on the web. However, the response was quick and they provided fast followup to my questions. The transaction was smooth and I was paid very promptly. Very easy to do business with.

Michael L. Pittsburgh, PA on Dec 31 2012

Tasked with selling some vintage baseball cards, I found Dean's Cards on the web. Although reluctant to do business online, I found near immediate and professional responses to my inquiries. After thorough research, I did mail my collection to them and received a quote about 110% of what I expected. Since I'm disabled with no income, I'm especially grateful for the integrity of Dean's Cards and the easy opportunity to turn my cards into cash. Thank you, sincerely, Dean's Cards! Michael L. Pittsburgh, PA

Jim O, Murrysville, PA on Dec 21 2012

I recently sold over 5000 of my older 50s and 60s baseball cards to Dean’s. Barry Lovett was great to work always responding to my e-mails in a prompt and professional manner. Upon initial contact, he detailed a step by step selling process and how Dean’s would evaluate my cards. So expectations were established and clear even before I sent my cards to Dean’s. Beyond this, Barry was patient with me as I continued to ask questions throughout the process. I was very satisfied with the overall experience including the fair price I got for my cards. I highly recommend Dean’s to anyone selling their collection. Jim O, Murrysville, PA

Dec 07 2012

I sold cards that I know will go to a deserving collector. Barry Lovett treated me fairly,promptly ,and the selling process was very simple. I am highly recommending Deans Cards as a great place to shop for your needs

Mary F., Dearborn, Michigan on Nov 30 2012

Barry Lovett at Dean's was very good to work with. He offered tips on sending our collection to him, explained his offer, was always very prompt in following up, and gave me a price that exceeded what I could get locally. I would recommend Dean's if you have a collection you need to sell. Mary F., Dearborn, Michigan

Terry Shaw Avondale Estates, Ga on Oct 08 2012

I recently sold my baseball cards to Barry Lovett of Dean's Cards and he was very prompt and fair always up front and fair paying me with a check for $730. Needless to say I plan on doing business with them again in the future. Terry Shaw Avondale Estates, Ga

Aug 06 2012

Great doing Business with Elana of Deans's Cards. I sold Topps Baseball Cards from the 50-60's era. Was given a fair price and received my check in 3 business days. The whole process was easy. I would do business again with Deans's Cards. Thanks, Elana!

Jul 29 2012

I sold some of my older cards to Dean's, they made the whole process easy. I feel I recieved a fair price, look to sent them a few more sets in the near future.

Dave D, Minneapolis on Jul 11 2012

I feel very fortunate to have found Dean's. They guided me through the card-selling process and made it very easy for me. After submitting inquiries to three web-based card buyers, I decided to send my cards to Dean's because they were prompt, courteous, friendly and thorough. I got a great offer for around 1,200 cards and I was very impressed with Dean's at every step in the process. I would recommend Dean's highly to anyone looking to sell cards. Dave D, Minneapolis

Jul 09 2012

Was a little hesitant to send cards thru the mail to a stranger, but it ended much better than I could have expected. They rated my cards the next day and I agreed to their fair price and had a check about a week later. Now am looking to sell the rest of my collection to them, who I fully trust with my cards.

Jun 21 2012

I sold a all my old baseball cards to Dean's and I feel like they treated me right. Everything was quick and they were very nice to work with. It was a lot easier than trying to figure out how to rank and sell the cards on ebay.

Jun 08 2012

I recently sold about 1400 fairly rough baseball, basketball cards to Dean's Cards. They were nice, responsiv, and saved me a lot of trouble not having to sell them myself. Got a check for $705.Elana was great to deal with.

May 29 2012

This was a very easy process. E- mailed other sites and never had reply. Deans cards answered the same or next day. Made the whole process a pleasent experience. Paid me $120 for Bowman cards I had no interest in anymore. I would recommend them to anyone buying or selling!

May 14 2012

I had some old Astronaut Cards that I wanted to sell. Elana gave me a rough quote and after I sent them in she told me that the estimate came back at almost double what she had quoted me. I suspect that most places would have given me the lower amount. Thanks for your honesty Deans.

I had a box of about 800 cards of mostly 1960's sports cards mostly baseball but also some basketball and football that I wanted to sell. I found Dean's Cards on the internet and after looking through their website I decided to contact them. I was a little dubious since we had never done business before and it was over the internet. But Elana was very helpful and within a few days I sent the cards and received a check for $1000. The whole process was painless and handled very professionally and fairly. I would do business with Dean's Cards again.

I was given a box of around 600 - 1950 and 1960 baseball and football cards from my grandfather recently. I literally had no idea what I had. I started to research on the internet and I found Deans Cards. I was skeptic and my husband even more so however the more I visited Deans web site, the more comfortable I became. I sent Dean an e-mail and got a response from Elana the same day. I sent my cards in and in less than 48 hours got a nice bid of $1,410.00 for the cards. I am thrilled and I hope that someone else will be able to enjoy the cards that my Grandpa loved. Thank you Deans!!! Lisa - Grafton,Wisconsin

Recently I sold a box of 1960's baseball cards to Dean's Cards. From my first e-mail contact with Elana, it was firmly established that Dean's is prompt, professional, precise and realistic in their dealings. I have been a record collector and dealer for many years and know that the disconnect between what people think something is "worth" and what it actually sells for is often vast. Dean's rhetoric is straight forward and not at all hyped. I was very happy with my interaction and will use Dean's in the future and also tell my friends about them.

Apr 11 2012

Recently I decided to sell my original collection of 1953 Bowman baseball cards. Having them for over 50 years I had some misgivings about selling them, especially over the Internet. Having no experience in this field I knew I would be at the mercy of those I would work with. I was fortunate to find Dean's Cards. They were a pleasure to work with, very responsive to any questions and were very fair in their appraisal and offer. In less than two weeks the cards were evaluated, a quote given and I had my check. They are everything they say they are, I would highly recommend them. Elana was very efficent and always reponded quickly to e-mails. Absolutely no problem in sending the cards to Dean's for them to look at and grade. It would be great if all Internet companies were like Dean's!

David F, Elgin IL on Mar 14 2012

From the original contact to the final price, everything was handled promptly & efficiently. This was the way you dream an internet sale should be handled. I had no fear sending my entire collection to Deans. They advised me how to send them, and offered me a bid within 48 hours. I accepted their bid of $700. Thanks Deans!! Keep up the good work. David F, Elgin IL

When I was looking to buying sports cards online, I found Dean's Cards to be the best. Price, quality of product and honest, reliable service is why I chose Dean's Cards and I highly-recommend Dean's Crads to everyone. It was a great experience! Michael Smith Vineland, New Jwersey

Mar 11 2012

I found the staff to be very responsive. I do not live in a metropolitan area and Dean's was my first choice for convenience. I was completely pleased by my experience with Dean's.

Sacramento, CA. on Mar 02 2012

Due to unfortunate circumstances,I felt compelled to sell my modest collection of about 560 baseball cards. Consisting of a couple of pre-war cards, and about 280 1970's cards, and the rest were 1950's and '60's. I was pleasantly surprised when I received a check for $1365 in just a couple of days. I must say, I was quite apprehensive about trusting anyone with my childhood memories, let alone, to someone I don't even know and have never met. Elana was a pleasure to deal with. She responded promptly to e-mails,answered questions, and was very professional throughout the whole process. She got back to me the same day they received the cards with a price. I would reccomend Dean's Cards to anyone who's having any second thoughts about sending their memories in the mail. I was totally handled with kid gloves. God Bless Dean's Cards. Sacramento, CA.

Gary Robinson, Newburyport MA on Mar 02 2012

I've just sold my collection of 1960s cards to Dean's. The cards were mostly TV show-related -- Addams Family, Gomer Pyle, Hogan's Heroes and five others, all full sets. These, along with some miscellaneous cards brought $300. I think the price was fair and the selling process was quick and easy. The folks at Dean's are honest and straightforward to deal with. You can trust 'em! Gary Robinson, Newburyport MA

Emily M. Whitsett, NC on Feb 23 2012

I recently sold my collection of 50s baseball cards to Dean's Cards and was very happy with the experience. My internet search had brought me to Dean's website which is filled with useful information about buying, selling, and grading cards. I emailed some questions, and Elana responded right away. She provided helpful information on packing and shipping the cards and reassured me that they had never lost any cards in the mail. She emailed me as soon as the cards arrived and, the next day, offered to buy the cards for $780 which seemed a fair price. The check arrived a few days later. I found the whole process very pleasant and easy and would recommend Dean's to other sellers. Emily M. Whitsett, NC

TG-Dawsonville, GA on Feb 17 2012

My brother and I recently decided to sell our baseball card collection, which totaled in excess of 7,000 cards mostly from 1958-65. I researched the internet to find the best process to sell them. Naturally, my search brought me to Dean's Cards. I contacted Elana to get some information (I was somewhat skeptical about sending them to a stranger) and she couldn't have been more helpful. She explained the process and gave me instructions on how to box the collection. I had a fair offer the day the cards arrived at their facility, and a check was in my hands shortly thereafter. The process couldn't have been more professional and stress free. I had also contacted 3 other firms who advertised that they would fly to me to evaluate the collection. None of them did what they alluded to in their emails or on their website. If you want quality service, a straightforward approach, and fair pricing, then you should do yourself a favor and work with Dean's Cards. TG-Dawsonville, GA

Christy Alexander - Norfolk, VA on Feb 08 2012

I was very impressed with the professionalism, speed and results of working with Dean's Cards. Elana was wonderful to work with. I sold about 150 Beatles trading cards to Deans. I felt the price offered was very fair - $50. Elana worked with me on the price until we both felt satisfied. Overall, I would highly recommend you doing business with Dean's. Christy Alexander - Norfolk, VA

While it was difficult to sell the childhood memories collected over 40 years the process of working with Elana made for a professional experience. The amount offered was fair; given the market, conditions, etc. I would highly recommend Dean's Cards.

Jan 27 2012

Great website. Extremely impressed with the response quickness of first and following contacts. Had no problem shipping for apprasial before collecting $$ because correspondance appeared truthful. Would not hesitate to use them again. A+++ rating!!!

Ben. P., Atlanta, GA on Jan 24 2012

I found a box of my father-in-law's football cards and was looking for a way to help my mother-in-law sell them. I did some internet research as well as visiting some stores in-person, and was not getting good service. Once I found Dean's website and started communicating with their staff I felt a lot better about the sales process. They answered all my questions before I sent off the cards, were very quick to respond to my emails, and after I sent off the cards they got back to me within 48 hours of receiving them with an offer that I found very fair. I would highly recommend them and plan to use them again should I find more cards in the future. Ben. P., Atlanta, GA

Jan 16 2012

I had about 2000 baseball cards that I collected as a young boy in the last 60's early 70's. I wasn't sure where to find their value, and ended up seeing Dean's when I preformed a Google Search. Elana made the process very easy, and kept me informed of the process all along. I would say that the offer was lower than what I thought 2000 cards would have been worth, but I don't have anything to base that on other than assumption! That aside, everything published on the Deam's website is accurate, and I'd consider them a premium vendor.

Jan 14 2012

Easy, peasy. Elana was prompt and thorough in all communications. Payment was prompt for cards sold and cards ordered were in great shape. I sold ~250 50s/60s baseball cards, a 1969 football near set, and some archive football and baseball cards. Got a couple hundred bucks and would HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone. Sounds shady at first to just mail your cards and get a check back, but was 100% legit, professional, and an overall fantastic experience.

Jan 13 2012

Thanks to Elana and her great customer service. Dean's Cards has a great employee in Elana. She is honest and has earned my trust. I plan on doing much more business with Dean's. Thanks again!

Jan 12 2012

I found Deans cards on the internet.Was hesitant about selling to a "stranger".They made the process of buying my collection very easy.Their offer was straight forward,honest and more than fair.Anyone looking to sell their card collection would be doing themselves a big favor if they contact deans cards.Professional,prompt,courteous and fair service.A good experience.Special thanks to Elana.

Jan 04 2012

I inherited over 200 baseball cards from the mid 1950's. While researching the best way to sell them, Dean's Cards stood out for their honest & professional advice. They were extremely prompt with answering my questions & once the the cards were received, the offer they made was, in my opinion, more than fair. I would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for sell their card collection.

Dec 20 2011

Couldn't have been more pleased with the prompt and courteous service from Elana! Reminded me of the way people did business back in the 50's when people cared. I count my blessings for my good fortune in finding this company, my experience could not have been better.

F.c. Russell on Dec 17 2011

I sold my card collection to Dean's Card's. found them on the web, emailed and talked to Elana. She was very kind and helpful.I would recommend Dean's cards to anyone. Thanks, F.c. Russell

Dec 12 2011

I wanted to sell my collection of about 1600 baseball cards from the mid 1950s. I could not find any interest locally and contacted Dean's. They provided extremely swift turnaround to all of my questions. It only took until one day after they received my cards to make me an offer. Since I did not shop the cards, I don't know how competitive the offer was, but the offer seemed reasonable and I certainly found the service very convenient. The transaction could not have been easier.

Dec 07 2011

I sold 3400 1960's vintage Baseball and Football Cards to Dean's in December 2011. I was extremely pleased with how the transaction was conducted both in timeliness and the price I received. !! Elana went above and beyond in my expectations! She is a true professional! I would highly recommend Dean's Cards to anyone considering selling their beloved card collections!

Nov 02 2011

I've been doing business with Dean's Cards for years. As a buyer, his cards are graded to perfection, offers deep stock positions and discounted prices based on the purchase value. This week I offered a collection of SGC graded cards. Shipping with USPS was $13 with confirmation (.60 cents). They received the collection Friday afternoon, made me an excellent & more than fair offer on Tuesday and sent me a bank check on Wed. During this 5 day period, Elana kept me informed during each step. Just wonderful services. Far more than a single service. This is the second time I've sold cards to Dean's. With my buying & selling history with Dean's I would never offer to sell to any one else. I told Elana that they are like the Boy Scouts of the card business. Thanks. This is why you"re still in business - and growing.

Oct 31 2011

I had several hundred cards from my collection of mid 60's to mid 70's I was interested in selling. I contacted Elana from Dean's & had an excellent transaction with the company. Elana was very prompt & courteous in all our correspondence. Would definitely recommend this site for anyone who is interested in selling or buying cards.

Sep 29 2011

I sold an incomplete 1969 set to Dean's in September,2011 and was very pleased with the manner in which Elana handled the transaction. All of her communications were specific and clear and were made in a professional and timely way.I would highly recommend Dean's to collectors with any different degrees of experience and knowledge.

Sep 29 2011

Sold a good portion of my 50's -60's collection to Dean's Cards.Worked with Elana, communication was fantastic, got quote one day after cards were received. I definitely would work with them again.

Stan Hill Herndon, Virginia on Sep 21 2011

Excellent response time on cards sold. Will do business in the future with Dean's Cards as they have a great selection of cards. Thanks Stan Hill Herndon, Virginia

Aug 30 2011

I initially searched the web for various places to purchase 1950's non-sports trading cards to fill in several series I had. The response and professionalism from Dean's cards concerning my purchases gave me the security I needed to send the excess cards I had for possible sale to Dean's Cards. The response from Dean was marvelous. Not only was the transaction completed in a short period of time, but also Dean offered much more than I was expecting for my cards. It was a true pleasure to do business with your firm, Dean!

Joel R., Minneapolis, MN on Aug 22 2011

I recently sold my collection of Who's Who in Baseball magazines. The service I got from Dean and his staff was courteous and professional. Some of the issues were just in average condition, but I got a very fair price from Dean. The payment was received promptly. Joel R., Minneapolis, MN

Jul 02 2011

Selling to Dean's Cards was a pleasant experience from beginning communication to fair offer and completion of sale. It was easy and enjoyable. I highly recommend Dean's Cards when you have memories to sell.

Jun 29 2011

I sold my cards to Dean's Cards, and I was really pleased with their service. He got back to me with a quote within days of receiving my cards. He is very trustworthy, and I can tell you this, he really does believe in excellent customer service. He educated me on the process of how they grade the cards, and when payment would be made. Dean really knows his business and I felt he really answered all of my questions, and gave me more than a fare deal on my collectible cards. Thanks so much Dean.

Jun 07 2011

Really please with Deans Card, I am from the UK so was a little apprehensive, but the service was excellent and was the communication, really pleased with what I was offered. Thanks again

Jun 04 2011

I was a little nervous about sending my set out to a stranger at first.but i read the feed backs and took a chance...everthing dean emailed me was right on ...with a business this big i dont think he wants to stick it to people...hes no bullshit..will do business again...

Jun 04 2011

In total I sold seven cards: 1887 Ezra Sutton and Ned Williamson, 1910 Sam Crawford and Gavvy Cravath, Gold Border Frank Schulte, and two 1933 Goudey Indian cards. I sold for a total of $310 and am very pleased with the entire transaction. After initially contacting Dean through the site, he got back to me by email the next day with instructions on how to proceed. His explanations of how he conducts business were very up front and put me at ease. I sent my collection via USPS, and within four days Dean sent me a bid. The website itself has great information on the overall card selling market, as well as explanations of how Dean operates and why. He also reiterates these sentiments in later communications during the selling process. I was very comfortable and impressed with the way Dean conducted business. I am completely satisfied with my transaction and highly recommend using Dean's Cards to sell vintage cards.

Putnam, New England on Jun 03 2011

I was very pleased with my experience in selling a memorabilia collection that a friend of ours had inherited. I spent a good deal of time trying to set a value on the collection which included close to 2,000 cards going back to the late ‘40s and found that determining quality of the individual cards was the hardest task. Next hardest was deciding on just how to liquidate the collection. After more research we settled on Dean’s. I conversed with Dean and some of his staff by e-mail & phone, and it was obvious from his responses that he had read every word that I wrote and actually cared about what was transpiring. (In contrast to a “Local” dealer who was quite brusque.) Dean’s people checked out the collection and in a few days made a fair offer for the collection. Dean’s is a very professional organization and friendly to boot. I would recommend Dean’s to anyone looking to sell their cards. Putnam, New England (pmorgan7@sbcglobal.net)

Jun 03 2011

I was very impressed with the way Dean conduct's he's businees. The set I sold was originally acquired by auction for $ 175.00,but unfortunaly the set wasn't in the greatest condition. I got in contact with Dean's website an was impressed with the catagories that are listed. I would recommend DEAN'S CARDS to anyone looking to sell a collection, very prompt in responding to a client. I was very impressed in the choice of either a check or the store credit upon the sale of the cards. I don't see any other dealer even coming close to doing that sort of gesture. So Dean I will keep in touch as much as possible. So for anyone and everyone out there please check out Dean's Cards.

May 26 2011

As I live in Cincinnati I was able to drop my cards by the office. Dean and his staff was very courteous and came back with an offer the very same day. Will definitely do business with Dean in the future in buying or selling additional cards.

May 23 2011

I sold well over 1000 baseball and football cards. Most of the cards were baseball cards and most of them dated back to the 1960s. Dean's was very quick, efficient and professional in their dealings with me. I would highly recommend them to anyone.

May 14 2011

Received an offer the same day the cards arrived at Deans. Accepted the offer, which was very competitive and received payment 4 days later.

Joe: from the Jersey Shore on May 10 2011

Apr 27 2011

Mar 21 2011

Alan P from Illinois here. I found an old collection of baseball cards in a box in the basement ( approx 400 cards from 1961 thru 1963 ) that I bought as a kid - I liked the gum! I looked around on the internet for what I was hoping was an honest dealer - and I found one ( Dean! ). He responded promptly to my emails, explained how the process worked, processed the cards quickly, and sent me a check whick I considered more than fair ( $255 for cards in fair condition ). Whether you know your cards, or whether you're like me, I think you'll find Dean to be fair and honest ( traits that seem harder and harder to find these days ). Thanks Dean!

Mar 17 2011

WAS DEALT WITH MOE THAN FARELY BY DEAN AND HIS SEC. TARA. WAS A PLEASURE DOING BUSINEES WITH THIS COMPANY !!

Mar 11 2011

Once I finally decided to sell my boyhood collection of cards from the 1950’s and early 1960’s, I spent a lot of time investigating possible ways to do this, including retail card stores, Ebay, and various online card dealers. I was initially very reluctant to send my cards through the mail to a stranger. But after I spent some time reviewing Dean’s website, I realized that he was likely to become the owner of my cards. Among the potential card buyers with whom I communicated, Dean was unique in making clear his respect and understanding for those of us who have a strong emotional attachment, as well as important memories, tied to our card collection. Communication was both comprehensive and timely. And his site is loaded with both general and very specific information about selling cards, including values for individual cards, which I found to be particularly helpful in gauging the value of my collection. My collection consisted of various kinds of cards, not just baseball, and their condition ranged from well worn to excellent. There were definitely some high value cards in good to excellent condition, but the majority were either common, or fairly well worn, or both. I would guesstimate that I had approximately 1,800-2,000 cards, which I sold to Dean for $1,625. Based upon the research I did, I consider this to be a fair price; at least as good, and probably better, than I would be likely to find elsewhere. In addition, the process was easy and the communication excellent. If I had more cards to sell, Dean would be my first choice as buyer. The selling experience could not have been better.

Mar 05 2011

I sent in a lot of old cards I'd collected to trade for some Horrors of War cards. The email responses and shipping of items was very timely; I feel I was given a good price for my submissions and was able to purchase the cards I needed from Dean's inventory. I will buy from them again.

I had a great experience working with Dean.I found his communication timely and we worked a deal collectively. I sold a partial 1958 and 1960 Topps football card set, there were some very nice cards and some were autographed. Getting close to retirement I decided to sell my sets and Dean gave me a fair price. Thanks dean

Fred from California on Mar 01 2011

This is Fred from California. I found Dean's on the internet about two + years ago. Have sent him four groups of cards, and from sale one, I was pleased with the way things worked out. I will continue to work with him and his company, they give great service and are quick.

Joe F. on Feb 28 2011

My first foray into selling trading cards was handled professionally by Dean and his staff. Besides his fair purchase of the collection for $200, Dean was very patient and professional when answering my questions on how to properly package and send the cards. Thank you very much, Dean and crew, for your wisdom and assistance. Here's hoping that we do business again in the future. --Joe F.

Feb 27 2011

I had no idea about Deans but came across them on the internet. They provided me with a transparent explanation of the process; the advantages of using their service than trying to sell the item myself and made the posting of the items to them hassle free. Deans price was very close to what I anticipated receiving. Deans explanation of my portfolio was honest, and if I had more to sell, he would be my go to guy! I think they not only value their customers but also their suppliers.

New Jersey on Feb 13 2011

This is Michael from NJ...recently sold to Dean collection of about 1000 cards...90% commons...10% HOF'ers/All Stars...condition varied but in general were excellent +...Dean was honest and upfront in his communication...his analysis of alternatives is correct...do the research...grading is expensive, selling online takes time and expense to prepare the set, plus offers no guarantee of getting close to 'book value'. Dean, offers a fair price, 25-35% of book, honest evaluation, quick turnaround, customer service support, and a 'bank check' to boot!!! I received $340 for my cards...I did much research to find a buyer online...and Dean was my choice. He lived up to his word and to his promise of service and fairness...Much Thanks to the 'Dean Team' from satisfied seller in NJ

Feb 08 2011

My first time selling baseball cards and Dean was fantastic. I had a small collection of Topps baseball cards from the mid-1960s. Dean bought them for $120, very generous for a pretty small collection. Very timely communication, honest, up-front in his assessment of my collection and the process for getting the cards to him. I would highly recommend Dean to anyone interested in buying and/or selling collectable cards. I am very pleased in my dealing with Dean. Thanks!

Jan 19 2011

The best experience I've had in 10+ years of doing business with at least six other card companies. Up-front...honest...quick to respond...extremely professional...easiest and best website I've ever used. Did absolutely everything they said they would do and when they said they would do it. Very top of my list now as I continue to build '50s baseball sets. Thanks, Dean !

Dean's Cards purchased my 1952 Redman Chewing Tobacco Card Collection w/tabs for $400.00 which I found to be an acceptable offer, not to mention a price within the range he quoted me sight unseen. My overall experience with Dean's Cards was without a doubt a pleasurable one, and an experience cloaked in honesty, integrity, and punctuality from the very first email exchange, shipping of my collection, an offer to purchase, and an agreed upon purchase price and payment. I must admit that it was not an easy decision to place my card collection in a box with packing materials and allow UPS to take them from the security of my posession, to the uncertainty of whether the person I was dealing with was a reputable business connection or an electronic internet scam artist. Dean's Cards passed the litmus test and I highly recommend this internet buyer/seller when you make the decision to sell your treasured collection or if you are in the market to purchase a vintage collection.

Just received my #50 Mickey Mantle 1966 Topps. Great service and the card is in excellent condition as you stated. I grew up in the 1950's and 'The Mick' was my hero. This card will someday go to my Grandson. Thanks for a wonderful Christmas! :D

Melanie, Indiana on Nov 22 2010

Dean's Cards is an excellent business with wonderful customer service. They are quick to reply to e-mails and treat you as if you are their only customer. We were very hesitant to send the blankets but after a few e-mails I knew we had nothing to worry about. If we are ever to buy or sell again - we're definitely going with Dean's and you should too! Thank You! Melanie, Indiana

CR, Orlando, Fla. on Nov 11 2010

Dean's Cards was the first place I checked out online when I was looking to sell some 1960s baseball cards for my dad. I read his piece about what types of cards sell these days and why, and it was very informative. It took some faith to box up hundreds of cards and mail them to a "faraway place," but Dean and staff were good in getting back to me via e-mail about the collection. I made more than $300 on the deal, which I found to be quite fair. Thanks for a good experience. CR, Orlando, Fla.

KMG Edmond, OK on Nov 09 2010

It was a leap of faith to bring myself to part with my childhood collection of basebal cards and even more of a leap to do this with an online buyer. Having said this, I can attest to the prompt, professional and curteous manner in which Dean dealt with his assessment of my card collection. After the offer was negotiated, I accepted and felt it was a fair, Win - Win decision for us both. My "leap of faith" was bolstered partly by review of these testimonials prior to initiation of my contact and I hope my comments will also have the effect of lessening the stress of parting with a piece of my past, (I still have my favorite '61 NY Yankees as a team in a display case in my office to remind me of my youthful pursuit of my fav team ! Thanks Dean, KMG Edmond, OK

T.D. Erie, PA on Oct 01 2010

The company was very fair and professional. I felt as though I was a personal friend, as the treatment was excellent. T.D. Erie, PA

Sep 26 2010

I contacted Dean about selling some cards that have been in my family for over fifty years. This was not easy for me to do. From the beginning Dean was courteous, explained things clearly, kept me informed when he had to get them graded and made it simple. Even when I expressed my doubts and concerns, Dean was willing to be very forthright with me and gave me reason to believe that I couldn't work with a more honest broker. I don't think one could find a better place to go if they want to try and sell their cards.

Sep 16 2010

Went to google and discovered Dean's and started process. It was very professional and i believe that i received fair value for my small collection.I would not hesitate to do business again or reccommend them to do business with.

Jenn, PA on Aug 26 2010

The whole process was timely and fair. It took a bit of courage to send my magazine and trust that it would end in a positive transaction, but it proved to be trustworthy and safer than using Craigslist. Jenn, PA

Pam on Aug 19 2010

I recently purchased a large estate that included baseball cards that I had no interest in. I researched the resale market of this collection and soon realized that I did not want to be in the card business. I made an inquiry to Dean's Cards and received prompt, courteous and professional responses. After I shipped the collection, received an offer, which I accepted and the check arrived in my mail quickly. That was the kind of card business I needed to be in and appreciated the way this was handled by Dean's Cards. I read testimonials like this when I chose Dean and wanted to assure you that it is why I came here and that it does work with this honest man. Thanks, Pam

CC in CT on Aug 06 2010

I had not tried to sell my collection of almost 400 cards anywhere else but felt very comfortable after corresponding with Dean and felt his offer to be very fair. His response was quick and the check came in a few days. Nice to know there are still nice people to do business with in this impersonal online world! CC in CT

Jeff B. on Aug 02 2010

I was extremely happy to have dealt with Dean's cards, on what was a sizeable sale of baseball and non-sports cards. Dean was totally responsive and my offer was quickly made and the transaction was extremely sound. I did not doubt Dean's for a second, and certainly the reputation of this on-line buyer and seller was an A+ experience for me. Their offer was fair and I am going to be sending them future cards for sale, as well as buying cards from them based on this solid experience. Thanks Dean's Cards, for enhancing the credible experiences to be found on the web!!!!! Sincerely, Jeff B.

Jul 31 2010

First time selling to Dean, but it definitely won't be the last! My appraisal was done within a few days of dropping them off at the post office, and I was given a fair price along the lines of what I expected. I was very pleased with the experience, in fact I have just boxed up another batch to send in. Great transactions both as a buyer and seller, Dean's is THE site for cards, bar none!

Jul 26 2010

Dean was fair and flexible in his purchase of my cards. After our initial email interaction, I felt comfortable sending them to him for his review. His payment came quickly, too. Thank you, Dean.

Jul 24 2010

I felt the whole transaction went very easy. After reading seller testimonials I had confidenence in Dean's cards.

Jul 22 2010

I decided to sell my childhood card collection (114 cards)and found Dean's on the web. After reading the home page & testimonials, I began communicating and received good information. I decided to send my cards for Dean's review & appraisal. The whole process was timely and professional. Thank you Dean's!

Jul 16 2010

Thanks again for working with me in moving some of my items, 62 TOPPS Outer Limits UK set, 68 TOPPS FB posters, 62 Fleer FB cards, etc. Everything done professionally and quickly. Trading seems to be a lost art, especially among dealers. It is good to know that there is still someone who still understands collecting and the hobby.

Dan on Jul 16 2010

I have to say this was smooth as glass. Deans gave me a little more than I had hoped to get by 25.00 dollars, and it was fast and handled all on the up and up. I will not hesitate to do business again. Dan

Roger Whipple on Jul 06 2010

I sent the yearbooks on faith because Dean's correspondence seemed sincere. I was very satisfied with the price I received. Every part of the transaction was done as promised. I would recommend Dean's Cards to anyone involved in the sorts card or memorabilia business. Roger Whipple

Jul 01 2010

Thank you for the prompt service and the fair treatment. Offered 50 % more in trade for store credit, which helps me build my collection

Frank T. Columbus, Ohio on May 20 2010

May 2010… I mailed my collection of mostly baseball cards with a few football cards to Dean, and two days later I received a fair and reasonable offer. A week later I had a check in hand for $645 for my collection. I had about 1,600 cards, most from the early 1960s. Everything went as advertised by Dean. It was all quite easy and straight-forward, and I recommend dealing with Dean. Frank T. Columbus, Ohio

JEFF S. Atlanta, GA on May 07 2010

I came across Dean's via Google searching for a way to sell duplicate vintage cards I had...in a manner that I could also directly buy vintage cards I needed. Dean's was that answer. A quality website that FAIRLY puts all this together, with an inventory this impressive, you will not find elsewhere. Mailed my cards out using USPS Priority ship, and within 3 days was offered store credit for my cards that was exactly on par with my expectations and exactly as outlined on the website. No surprises, which was great. Communication was not only fast but, perhaps most important in this day and age, friendly. I recommend Dean's and look forward to using your services again in the future. JEFF S. Atlanta, GA

Apr 05 2010

i sold cards i've had all my life. There were no superstars, but i felt I got a fair price considering their condition.

Mar 14 2010

After several years of scouting mall shows and local shops, I found Dean's site on the web and decided to sell a small collection of about 1,000+ Football cards. Dean was very easy and honest to deal with, I had a fair price in about 3-4 days Football cards, and payment shortly thereafter. After a good first experience, I will be selling my baseball card collection as well.

Mar 13 2010

Never thought I'd find a new home for these. My husband had saved them from the 50's and now it is time to clean house. Checked the internet and Dean seemed to have the best site, called and talked to him. Very pleasant man, very knowledgeable, great service and a fair price. This is the only time I have dealt with him but would absolutely do it again.

Marty Weaver; New Castle, IN on Mar 12 2010

I recently sold 500+ Post cereal cards from the early 60's to Dean's Cards. I was impressed with the prompt response...not only in reviewing the cards, but also in answering my e-mailed questions. There was a transperancy in our dealings that made me comfortable with sending my cards. The offer was was fair. My whole experience was very positive and I will not hesitate to use their services in the future. Marty Weaver; New Castle, IN

Mar 09 2010

I have roughly 400 baseball cards and was looking for a fair offer from a trusted source...I found that and more from Dean's Cards. Offer was quick, fair and timely. I will be sure to use Dean's Cards again and would recommend them to any collector looking to sell their collection the right way.

Feb 26 2010

I was completely satisfied with the way my collection was reviewed and the short time it took to receive a very fair offer.I did not know where or how to sell my collection, but was surprised how well Dean explained and followed thru with is offer. No one should be afraid to send their cards to Dean,He will deliver as his website states. I recommend his company to all collectors.

Feb 22 2010

I must admit I was hesitant about mailing my collection to anyone. Dean's however handled everything promptly and put me as ease. I would recommend Dean and suggest that you give him the first chance at an offer if you are considering selling a collection.

Feb 11 2010

I came across Dean on the internet and was intrigued by what I saw. I had some questions as I had never sold anything online. Dean was very up front about how he values the cards and answered all questions about the selling process. I have now sent him 3 boxes of cards from the 50s, 60s, and 70s, as well as some non sports cards I came across. Considering the condition and somewhat random nature of the cards I sent him, I was quite pleased and actually pleasantly surprised with his offers. I very happy I decided to do business with Dean, as every aspect of the process has been great. He always replies promptly to questions, with offers, and ultimately with payment.

Glenn on Feb 08 2010

Preparing to sell my childhood collection of over 3,000 baseball cards from the 1950's, I discovered Dean's Cards on the internet as well as several other potential buyers. Dean was prompt and thorough in responding to my inquiry and fully answered all my questions about the process, which was new to me. I did send the cards to another dealer prior to Dean and had a good experience with him. Dean was superb and thorough with me and he offered a fair price for my cards, a price which I accepted. The check to me arrived in the promised time frame. I thank Dean for his service and wholeheartedly recommend him to others. Glenn

Feb 03 2010

Found this site searching for card values. When I inquired about selling my entire Baseball collection, I got a clear and honest explanation of the process and an approximate value for the collection. After Dean received the cards, I feel I was offered a fair price for the collection and payment was promptly sent. I will recommend Dean's Cards and I wouldn't hesitate to use him again.

Feb 01 2010

I searched on line for someone to sell the cards to. Found Deans & he suggested I mail them to him. Very scary, but I must say No problem He's very honest & very eager to deal with you. He can be trusted to return them should you desire. I'll continue to look through what we have & deal with him again.

Jan 29 2010

I just sold to Dean the complete set of Topps Mickey Mantle from years 1959-1968. Dean paid me top dollar and is very honest and fair about his offer. The thing I like most about Dean's company is that He responded to all my emails very quickly. I strongly recommend him to you all. again I'm very pleased with your business. Thanks a lot Dean!

Jan 27 2010

I sold a couple of sets from the '70s,a box of '61 Topps baseball cards and a couple of '69 baseball insert sets. I e-mailed Dean to see if he was interested in them and see said he was. I shipped them to him and told him them they were on the way and he said he would watch for them. He contacted with an offer which I gladly accepted. This was all within the past week so the turn around was very fast. I amm now waiting for the check to arrive. Thanks Dean and if any of you are thinking about selling your cards, give Dean a try. You will not be disappointed.

Jan 25 2010

Dean was very easy to deal with and trustworthy. He came back with a great offer for an old collection which wasnt in top shape. I will continue to do business with Dean's Cards in the future and highly recommend him to others.

Jan 25 2010

After doing some research on line I took a chance on sending Dean my cards. My wife was somewhat skeptical about mailing the cards to a stranger, but this seemed much easier than going on E-Bay. Although my collection was quite small, I believe I received a fair price. My collection consisted mainly of 60's commons as well as some star players of the 60's. Dean was very prompt in responding to all of my correspondence. I would not hesitate to use Dean or recommend him to others in the future.

Jan 20 2010

Dean was fair and honest about his offer. Even contacted me on a Sunday. After accepting his offer the bank check arrived in 5 days. Great dealer.

Jan 17 2010

We just sold our 1952 Topps original baseball card series to Dean for $20,000, including a Mickey Mantle. Through the whole experience, Dean was very professional and thorough. He responded to every question we had with lightning speed and was extremely upfront and honest. The scariest part was having to mail our cards, but Dean gave us thorough instructions and great advice. It worked like a charm. There are a lot of dishonest and irresponsible dealers out there today, but Dean is absolutely top-notch to deal with. We trusted him with a prize collection and he came through for us 100%. We HIGHLY recommend Dean to any seller out there.

Jan 15 2010

Dean responded overnight to my inquiry and was very prompt in follow up e-mails. He was very good about reviewing the cards I had sent and in giving advice as to the best way to send them quickly, and cheaply. Upon receipt, he had a quote to me within 48 hours and was very open and honest when I questioned his quote. He was very professional and I would gladly recommend him and do business with him again in the future.

Jan 04 2010

The market for trading cards is horrible, so it is incredible that a dealer still exists that will give you some value for your cards. Dean is the only dealer I have found that actually responds to e-mails. I know it is worrisome to send your cards to someone you do not know but Dean has proven to be trustworthy and has offered to pay for the cards to be returned if you do not accept his offer. I am sure he would do this although I have never not accepted the fair prices he has offered for the cards have sent him.

Jan 01 2010

I decided to sell my football card collection consisting of several complete sets of cards from all years 1970 thru 1976. Dean was very fair and responded quickly to my questions. I would highly recommend giving Dean a chance to quote you on buying your cards. The payment was timely and exactly as he said it would be.

Dec 24 2009

I really had a pleasant experience with Dean. My emails were returned in a timely manner and my questions and concerns were all handled with great detail. Bottom line, I felt like I was in good hands with Dean right from the beginning.

Dec 13 2009

I sold a 100 or so 1950's baseball cards to Dean last Summer and I am sorry to have taken so long to write this letter. The cards were various grades but many were in poor condition. The gem was a 1948 Bowman Stan Musial. The offer by Dean was adequate but the great benfit of his process is the ease of it. Without an inventory or official grading I simply sent him my cards and within a few days had an offer to accept or reject. My friend warned me not to send my cards to what was then a stranger but I took a chance and was very pleased with the response and the payment. No other buying site even responded to my inquiries. I hope to do business again with Dean.

Dec 08 2009

It took me a year to send my child hood collection of 1962 Topps baseball cards to Dean's Cards. I could not bring myself to sell these treasures but dealing with Dean made it easy. A gut feeling about Dean's Cards became reality. This dealer can be trusted, is honest and fair. Thanks Dean for being upfront and convincing me I made the right deal.

Nov 18 2009

I recently sold my baseball and football cards to Dean as I haven't looked at tehm in years. He was very upfront about pricing and was easy to deal with. He even threw in a couple of Fran Tarkenton cards so I can show my son when he is a little lder who my favorite player used to be. Thanks again!

Oct 24 2009

I returned to card collecting as a customer of Dean's with such satisfaction that I decided to become a seller. Hoping to capitalize on the value of some of the doubles I own from the 1960's I decided to offer 135 ungraded mostly low-numbered common cards from 1964 and '65. I expected either a flat refusal or a complicated matter of having to have them graded and/or suffer several exchanges by mail of wanted and unwanted cards. To my surprise Dean offered to take them all and trust his judgement regarding their value. It was very clear that they would not be returned. The e-mails I received during this exchange were immediate, personal, honest and very transparent. In a word it was 'easy'. For the number of cards I sent (135) described as "rough" by Dean I was given $32.00 value plus 150% of that because I had requested store credit for $48.00 and then a generous "rounding up" to $50.00. All-in-all approximately 37 cents/card. Shipment to Dean's was $8.00. The transaction in all regards was satisfactory and I would recommend Dean's cards to anyone buying and/or selling cards.

Sep 14 2009

I worked with Dean as the agent for someone who was selling 1933-1934 Goudey cards. Dean was quick to my email and phone responses and professional in every conversation. It is hard doing a deal with a middle man, but Dean was relaxed and helpful to get the deal done. Dean sent me a quote that give me a ballpark range of an offer. The meeting was nothing but the best. He was a great guy to work with and very professional. I have been involved in many business transactions, but working with Dean was honestly one of my best experiences. I recommend Dean's Cards to anyone selling cards!

Tim D. on Sep 07 2009

About a month ago, I decided to sell my card collections of football & baseball cards. After talking to a couple of local card shops, I found out that the only way they would take my sets of cards was through consignment. In other words, they would put a price on each individual set and put it on shelf until someone buys it. The only problem with this is it could take months or years to sell my collections. Plus, the card shop would take a percentage (10 to 20%) when the sets would sell. I did not like the idea of waiting so long and that they take a percentage. After looking online at several sites I came across Dean's Card's and after reading what he had to say about how the card collecting hobby has been ruined by overproduction and loss of interest these days. I totally agreed with what Dean had to say. Now, I love my card collection's and I've been collecting since I was 9 years old, but I haven't collected in the last ten years or so. This was due to the high cost of cards and that there are just to many cards out there to keep up with them. So, I e-mailed dean to inquire about them and found that he was very straight forward with me and I liked that very much. I decided to send him four of my baseball sets just to see how much they would worth and I was pleased with his offer. I must say that dealing with Dean is a much easier way to sell my collection's, than going thru local card dealer's (which by the way, are disappearing)and waiting for who knows how long to sell them. I need to get them out quicker than that. I am currently getting my next batch of cards ready to send to Dean and will continue to do so. As I said before, I love my cards, but I need to part with them as all they are doing is collecting dust for past ten years and hopefully they will go to someone who cares about them as much as I do. Thanks again, Dean I will be in contact. Tim D.

Frank on Sep 02 2009

I had a set of the 1956 Flags of the World cards and a number of Scoop cards. I had no idea of the value or how to sell them. I had gone to a card shop in town and they were not interested. I came across Dean's Cards while searching the Internet. I contacted him and he said that the only way to give a fair appraisal was for me to send him the cards. I was a bit skeptical about sending my cards. After reading all the positive testimonials I decided to send them. I am pleased to say that Dean contacted me with a very fair price. I am quite happy with the outcome. In our modern world of internet scams, I am happy to say that Dean was very honest and forth right with me. I would recommend him anytime to anyone wanting to sell their card collections. Thanks Dean. Your new friend, Frank

Aug 24 2009

After moving around my collection for the past 50 years, I decided to sell my cards. I had over 500 baseball cards and about 75 football cards. Even though they were worth less than the "value" I placed on them (sentimental I guess), Dean was very upfront with me and we agreed on an acceptable price. Dean was very quick in providing me a price and was responsive to my questions. I would recommend him if you are considering "letting go" your prized collection.

Aug 12 2009

Recently, I decided to sell my entire set of 1966 Topps baseball cards. Also included were assorted '60s cards of various all-stars.Dean was the first and only individual I contacted for the following reasons:1.) He immediantly responded to my initial email, and subsequent numerous telephone calls, and follow-up emails. 2.)He was courteous and respectful each time, 3.)He offered to me what I believed was a fair market price, and 4.)he mailed the check immediantly upon us agreeing on the value of the collection. It was a very good experience.

Aug 02 2009

This is the second time i have sold cards to Dean. This is the second time i sold cards to Dean.He is honest and timely with his reponses.I had 70s NHL and NFL and 80s MLS along with some 60 Toppps MLB.Very fair offer and quick turnaround with payment.I HIGHLY RECOMMEND DEAN......

Jul 20 2009

I recently sold Dean my 1969 Topps partial set which included over 300 autographed cards. Dean cared enough to help ease the difficult decision to sell these cards. He was fair and understanding, not only in the deal but the effort it took on my part to get these cards signed. It was a pleasure to do business with Dean.

Jul 11 2009

I sold Dean c. 300 older baseball cards from the above-captioned era and 44 Davy Crockett cards: 17 orange-backs & 27 green-backs. Many of these cards were in good condition, but many others were in fair to poor condition. These were all cards that I had replaced with superior cards over a number of years; cards I had no use for. While many dealers would have told me they just weren't interested, Dean made me a prompt and fair offer. He also offered me 150% of that figure in store credit should I choose to make additional purchases from him. I chose the latter option and must say all of my experiences with Dean's Cards--buying and selling--have been very positive.

Jun 09 2009

dean was a great communicator, very honest, and straight forward. i wouldn't hesitate to do business with again. i appreciated his fast replies to my questions thru email. definitely recommend.

Joe and Liz Saffomilla on May 15 2009

My wife inherited a very large collection and we had no idea how to sell it. It contained stuff from the 90s all the way back to the 20s. Just the thought of selling over 10,000 cards was a daunting task, and not knowing the values we were twice as nervous about it. I contacted many dealers and was somewhat upset at what we were offered and in fact I was kind of rude to Dean, but after a lot of research I learned he was being more than fair with us and went out of his way to help us and explain things to us. He took the good with the bad poke man right up to the Horrors of war, Rails and Sails and Davey Crockett and offered almost double what others offered him. It was a scary experience sending shipments of cards to an unknown person and trusting them, Dean was not only fair, but always willing to talk on the phone and answer questions and had the checks out to us within a day or two of getting the shipments. Over the months we sent him at least 20 boxes without a single problem I would recommend Dean to anyone who has a collection to sell, he is not only fair and professional but fast and a really nice guy to deal with. My only regrets are that we have sent him all the cards and that I did not find him sooner. Do yourself a favor and do your dealings with him it will save you a lot of time and aggravation. ~Joe and Liz Saffomilla

May 14 2009

A very pleasing,pain free way to sell your cards/sets. No pressure..very frank and honest It was all good for me

Mike Taylor on May 11 2009

I contacted Dean's on May 4th, with the collection I wanted to sell. I was selling some 1933 Goudey's I had. I tried to sell them on E-Bay but people try to take advantage of you on that site. I talked to dean through e-mails and believe me when I tell you he is right on top of things. Like I said I first talked to dean on Monday May 4th he told me to mail the cards to him. I mailed them that same day and he got them on Thursday and by Friday we came to an agreement on a price. He was very fair I got almost double what I was being offered on E-Bay. I have also bought cards from Dean's in the past and was very happy with those cards. I would recommend Dean's Cards to anyone who asks me. Thank You Dean. ~Mike Taylor

Bob S. on Apr 01 2009

I came across an old grocery bag of cards in a basement I was cleaning out. Now I know nothing at all about collecting or the value of baseball cards. I considered Ebay but that would've meant A LOT of searching and going through card by card to get value estimates, Then there were the listing fees to consider, the e-mails to answer with questions I probably COULDN"T answer, the shipping too! About 900 trips to the Post office! I thought too about just listing the whole lot for 25 dollars just to sell them. Further searching led me to several sites... why I clicked on Deans Cards I can not say, but I did. I read the pages and I can say honestly that I had very little concern, The information was concise and complete.I contacted Dean with what I had and I stated again that I knew absolutely nothing at all about baseball cards. Dean stated he would need to see the cards to actually give me a good estimate on value. I had a wee bit of hesitation about sending them though. I went back to the site and read about the thousands of cards they view month by month and decided to take the chance. Hey what did I have to lose....I got them for free to begin with so I gambled on the little postage it was to send them. I sent in over 900 cards from the mid sixties...( I learned they were from the mid-sixties from Deans Cards site information!) I sent him an e-mail that I had shipped the cards and the reply was quick in saying he would look forward to seeing them. Three days later I got an e-mail stating the cards were received and had been reviewed. Dean stated the cards were in kind of rough condition and I was inclined to agree with him. They were not at all pristine... hey they were probably in that bag in the basement since the mid sixties... all piled together and moved around about a thousand times!Anyway, Dean came back with an offer of $215.00 for the lot and I agreed.... he saved me a ton of Ebay aggravation! The bottom line is this...I gained a whole bunch of respect for someone I didn't know who was actually extremely honest compared to the billions of rouges out there in cyber-space! Dean if you read this...blessings to you for your honesty! If I EVER come across another bag or box or whatever of baseball cards Deans Cards will be my first and only stop! If you are a reader hesitant about sending your collection in for his evaluation.... I say "lose the worry, send the cards and know you will be treated fairly"!!!!!!!! Thanks Dean!!! Bob S.

I had a couple of old baseball tobacco cards and a few old silk flags from cigarettes. I saved them for years hoping to make the big bucks someday but after checking these things out on e bay, I noticed there really wasn't a market for me. Dean was nice enough to explain the business to me and I decided to sell Dean the small collection. (even though he may not be able to sell them). I am very happy that he has the collection and I hope some day someone will buy them and enjoy them. Thank you Dean for taking them off my hands and giving me a little spending money.

I found an old box full of 1950 Topps Freedom's War cards in my attic recently and wondered what to do with them. I didn't know what I had found. I did some research on the internet, and I kept coming back to Dean's Cards. So I did a little research on Dean's Cards and found many favorable reviews. I could not find one negative remark. Not one. I contacted Dean's Cards out of curiosity, and they promptly responded to me. The email gave explicit directions as to what they do, what I should do, and the process of buying my lot. Although I was very hesistant about sending out my 'treasure' ... I was assured that options were available to me to insure my package. I simply packed up the cards to prevent any further damage and sent them off certified mail to Dean's Cards to a physical street address. To satisfy my hesitation, I took inventory of what I was about to send. I also took pictures and had a witness standby. None of that was necessary. I got my return receipt and an email from Dean's Cards the same day. They contacted me in the alloted time they said they would, they were very professional and very accommodating. And, they were very fair in their offer to me. If I find any more treasures in my attic, I'm going to contact Dean's Cards! They made it fast, fun and easy.

Feb 16 2009

I decided to sell my old baseball cards and, after searching the Net, contacted Dean. I had been nervous about sending cards in the mail to someone I didn't know, but he patiently and helpfully guided me through the process. When I sent the ungraded 1966 Topps baseball set, Dean promptly made an offer for what I felt was a fair price. I agreed, and his check quickly arrived. It was a very good experience

Jan 29 2009

Selling my baseball cards to Dean's Cards was a new experience for me. First time I sell something through the Internet. I sold several cards from the 1965 Topps Collection. Personally, I am not a baseball cards collector. I had these cards from when I was a kid and decided to sell them to Dean's Cards after researching the Internet for possible cards buyers. I received a quick response from Dean's Cards regarding a bid and believe I got a fair price for my cards. It was a gratifying experience and I recommend Dean's Cards for selling any sports cards you might have.

Jan 13 2009

I had a very good experience selling my childhood baseball card to Dean's. I would recommend Dean to anyone considering the sale of their cards. My collection consisted of rather worn 1960's Topps baseball cards and inserts. My experience was that Dean did exactly what they said they would do on the web site concerning the sale: - Communicated with me quickly by email about the kinds of cards they would be interested in buying; - Reviewed my cards quickly (less than 2 days from after they received them); - Gave me a price that I expected. - Mailed the check quickly. I know it's hard to part with these childhood treasures over the internet, but they handled my sale very professionally.

Dec 16 2008

I sold a collection of early 1960's basketball and football cards, plus some specialty baseball cards ("Baseball Greats"). A lot of cards, the magazines and websites suggested value could be as much as $7000 - that is, IF they're all in Near Mint condition, and IF one can find a buyer. I am no expert on condition, hadn't touched the collection in years. (Last previous trading included sale of Pete Rose rookie card - the year before Pete got busted.) Only was reminded of the cards while sorting through years of accumulated children's stuff. Well, after some modest haggling, Dean paid about $1000. I was satisfied, seemed a fair transaction. I can strongly recommend Dean's Cards to anyone considering selling a collection of vintage cards. Our e-mail communication was accurate, thorough, and prompt. Dean's review of my collection and his purchase offer was also respectably rapid, and his payment arrived quickly too. Assuming Dean moderates these forums, may I wish you and yours a fine holiday season and beyond.

Randsy on Nov 11 2008

My cards were saved by my mother and given back to me at a later age. These cards were part of my childhood and were handled,traded and flipped against the garage walls almost on a daily basis. Dean took these cards as well used as they were and treated me fairly and honestly and I thank him for that. I will continue to deal with Dean as long as he wants me as a customer. Cheers

Oct 21 2008

Looked on line for a way to sell about 700 baseball cards from 1961-1973 that I used to "flip" as a kid and collected. Deans was very upfront about their buying procedures and expectations. The cards were not in mint condition but the offer was fair and the process was definitely very thorough and exact. The experience was very good and I was happy with the result. I definitely recommend Deans as a top notch dealer to do any future business with.

Ray on Oct 16 2008

Recently sold my collection of complete sets 1970-76 Topps Baseball. Excellent communication with Dean and very pleased with my check for $1000. Hope to do more business in the future and highly recommend. Ray

I had finally come to the time that I decided to sell my collection of baseball and football cards from the late 60s and early 70s. I looked for many different options/avenues to try and get what value I thought I should get . First try was to go to a local dealer and the dealer was only interested in a couple of cards and wasn't interested in any other offers. So, reluctantly, I went to the web. I had heard enough disappointing stories from ebay experiences. I went to Beckett's site and then I discovered Dean's site. After reading the documentation on his website and through emailing him, I felt good enough about sending my collection to him from Texas. We came to a fair price into which he was willing to consider my thoughts about my cards. Every collector thinks very highly of the cards he owns, whether it is nostalgic or deserving. Thanks Dean for being honest and straight-forward in your business.

Sep 07 2008

I recently sold a portion of my collection and was impressed with Dean's quick and thorough resonse to my inquiry. He laid out a scenario that was fair and educational before the cards were shipped out for review. This minimized any negative surprises and allowed for the proper management of expectations. The review process was quick and instant once the collection was recieved and an offer given by Dean the same day! I look forward to doing more business with Dean in the very near future.

Larry Murphy on Aug 19 2008

Like many "boomers" I have had 3 or 4 boxes of baseball and football cards in shoeboxes since the last 60's. I think we all hope that our childhood toys are now worth a fortune, but we're realists and know better. I got my cards out of the closet about a month ago and started re-living childhood memories. After that, I decided that it was time to part with my cards, so I decided to sell them. I spent time looking at ebay, and realized that it would cost me more to sell them than my collection was worth. Between my time, ebay insertion fees, ebay sale fees, PayPay fees, postage, packaging, and nearly $4 gas to/from the post office, I decided that that wasn't the way to go. From there I found Dean's, and read this article. Link ==> http://www.deanscards.com/sell-your-...ction-i-5.html It answered all of my questions! I then emailed Deans and talked to Dean directly. I was hesitant at first to send him my collection, but after talking to Dean I got comfortable and sent him the entire thing. I sold everything, and still feel good about it. There price was fair too. Thanks Dean! Larry Murphy

Jake on Aug 18 2008

Dean is great to work with, he looked at my cards, and within a day i recived my check. Dean had great communications and helped me every step of the way. Thanks Dean

Jul 17 2008

dean was a great communicator, very honest, and straight forward. i wouldn't hesitate to do business with again. i appreciated his fast replies to my questions thru email. definitely recommend.

May 20 2008

Sold Dean a collection of 1952 and 1953 TOPPS baseball cards. Everything went very smooth and was very impressed with communication and professionalism. payment was received very promptly and I appreciated his comments on insurance which saved me a few bucks on the deal.

Apr 28 2008

After an extensive Internet search to unload my vintage 1950s and 1960s baseball card collection, I discovered Dean's. The responses I got from Dean's were spot on. The submission process was a bit complicated, but designed to protect my collection. My questions were answered promptly, and discussions with Dean were clear, fair, and honest. I appreciated them being up front with me, and my valid concerns brought us to an equitable resolution. I sold my collection!

Scott H. (Tampa ,Florida) on Apr 01 2008

I recently asked Deans Cards to look at my grandfathers 1963 Topps Complete Set and asked them if they were interested in buying them. They were very honest and fair, after a quote from them I decided to have them purchase them. I sent my cards to them knowing that I sent these cards without being paid. After the set arrived in Ohio a check was in my hands within 2 days. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. I will do business with them again in the near future Thanks Deans Cards and all who work there. Job well done !!! Scott H. (Tampa ,Florida)

Mar 27 2008

Selling a baseball card collection carries so much emotional baggage. The circumstances of my choosing to sell--which were not financial need--left me feeling anxious, uneasy, even sick. The honest, frank, and decent guidance provided by Dean's Cards put me at ease right away and made me feel I was dealing with someone who knew what this process meant. I sent in a mixed collection of vintage, near-vintage, and non-vintage, and within hours of receiving my collection Dean sent me an offer that was more than fair. I would never have been able to sell these cards myself for their supposed full-value; selling them to Dean's Cards was a better experience than I imagined possible. I feel like I found a good home for a pet I could no longer keep.

Anonymous on Mar 26 2008

Doing business with Dean's has been a great experience. Everything was handled in a professional and timely fashion. I have nothing but praise for the entire organization.

Mar 26 2008

Just sold my 1957 and 1958 Topps to Dean and belive I got fair value for the cards. I had checked out Dean via the internet with Secretary of State and BBB in Ohio - and it looked like he was the real deal - so I sent one set via Fedex. I would recommend Dean to any holders of old cards who want to get a good return without delay and effort (eg consignment at various shops).

Todd Middleton on Mar 20 2008

I was asked to sell a 1950's collection of cards including a Mickey Mantle, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, Ted Williams for a close friend whose husband had passed away. I have not experience with cards and I put my trust in Deans cards and sent the collection to them. They immediately got back to me with and offer that went far beyond expectation. You can trust them with your cards and that they will give you a good price. Thanks guys! Todd Middleton

Feb 22 2008

I sold my old card collection to Dean's cards about a month ago. I received timely, honest emails. I had no issues with shipping the collection or getting the check. If I had any more cards I would definitely sell them to Dean again. It's too bad he doesnt buy cards from the 80's and 90's! Thanks again

Feb 22 2008

Dean, the check arrived! This concludes another great transaction that featured quick replies, fair price, and rapid payment. I am happy that my 1956-1974 Oriole team sets ended up in Dean's hands!

Feb 20 2008

It is a leap of faith to mail your collection to a stranger. However, Dean made me feel at ease and the testimonials on this site did as well. The entire transaction was extremely smooth. Once Dean received my collection he sent an email with his offer. I received a check within a few days. I have much more to send Dean and will do so without hesitation. I would recommend Dean's Cards to anyone wanting to sell. Thanks Dean.

Feb 12 2008

I sold a some Topps cards from 1958. Dean was very helpful and answered all my questions. He put a bid on the cards very quickly. I received the check within 2 days after I accepted the offer. All in all a very positive experience.

Feb 07 2008

I had a collection of about 150 baseball cards, mostly from 1957-58 that had been tucked away in my mother's attic. Cards featured players from a wide variety of teams and included a few of the more notable players of the time. Most of the cards were in reasonably good condition but had not been handled or preserved with resale in mind. I became aware of Dean's Cards via internet and was favorably impressed with the prompt and informative reply that was forwarded following my inquiry. I was given a realistic expectation of what to expect and offered a seemingly risk-free opportunity to receive a bid on the cards. After having sent the cards for appraisal I received a bid very promptly. (which I accepted) It is my impression that Dean's Cards conducts business in an exemplary manner!

Feb 02 2008

Dean is the best. Easy to deal with very prompt at returning e-mails and phone calls.It is hard to just send ur collection and hope,Dean made me feel at ease about doing it.I was surprised at how fast the check was sent and the amount.when i called Dean he explained how he does business and everything went as planed. very professional. thks Dean

Jan 28 2008

Dean, I APPLAUD my experience selling to you. I sent you my lots of Oriole Team sets and assorted minor stars from the 50s and 60s. You were quick to respond and even quicker with your payment, which, quite frankly was somewhat more than I expected. Adding three dollars to round out the amount was a touch of class. I'll be sending you more material and will heartily recommend you to any of my friends and acquaintances who might be looking for a buyer for their vintage sports cards. Keep up the good work, Dean.

Jan 10 2008

I just completed the sale of a 1954 Topps Baseball collection with Dean and could not have been happier with the result and overall experience. Every step of the transaction was handled professionally with clear expectations and communications. The final pricing was very fair and I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend Dean's cards to anyone interested in selling vintage cards. Dean's gets a 5 out 5 stars in my book!

Dec 10 2007

Sold a 1969 complete set. The transaction was excellent, and I received an extremely fair price for the cards!!! I highly recommend Deans Cards to anyone looking to sell their card collection. Quick transaction and very easy to work with!

Dec 01 2007

I recently sold my childhood baseball card collection to Dean. The collection included cards from the 50's, 60's, and 70's - including superstars. Also included were 25 common tobacco cards that I had collected over the years. Dean was very prompt with his initial offer. Communication was excellent (I believe he is the most communicative dealer out there). In addition, he listened to my concerns and worked with me to determine a price that we both considered fair. I ended up trading my collection for a high end card and was given 150% of the offer in trade. Also, the card I traded for was discounted 20%. The remaining money I received as a check. Overall, I was very happy with the experience and would not hesitate to refer anyone selling their collection to Dean for an offer.

Nov 22 2007

I sold my cards at fair price. Check was in mail less 8 Days.

Neil on Nov 09 2007

I have always believed any card on the planet is only worth what someone else is willing to pay you for it. With that said, the selling of my small collection of '57-'69 Topps baseball cards was done quickly & professionally. Only downer was UPS charging me almost $15 to send 3.5 lb. package from Fl. to OH. Neil.

J.K. on Nov 06 2007

As a person that didn't have a clue about selling baseball cards; I never realized that there was such good help out there. That help was Dean and his online card business. He was unbelievably helpful and always answered my questions promptly no matter how silly I thought the question might be. We had cards to sell from the 60's & 70's primarily. At first we were hesitant about sending them anywhere to be looked at; but we quickly realized that Dean was the real thing--honest, professional, and someone we could certainly trust. Business is conducted in a timely manner (send him the cards-he looks at them-he makes you an offer-if you accept, he sends you a check!) Don't think twice; Dean's cards is the way to go if you are looking to sell your baseball cards!!! ~J.K.

MM on Oct 27 2007

I RECENTLY SOLD MY COLLECTION OF 1950S-1960S SPORTING NEWS TO DEANS CARDS....DEAN IS EXTREMELY FAIR IN THE WAY HE DOES BUSINESS AND HE OFFERED ME A MOUNTAIN OF STORE CREDIT SO I CAN FINISH MY TOPPS SETS.....(HE FIRST OFFERED CASH, BUT THE JUNKIE IN ME OPTED FOR THE STORE CREDIT). I WILL CONTACT DEANS FIRST ANYTIME I HAVE COLLECTIBLES TO SELL. DEAN IS A PLEASURE TO DO BUSINESS WITH!!! ~MM

Oct 19 2007

Deciding to sell my childhood baseball card collection, most notably a 1955 Topps Sandy Koufax rookie card in Mint condition, I was envisioning a prolonged, arduous process of haggling over ebay. I was pleasantly surprised to learn I could sell all of my cards to one person with no hassle and receive a pretty fair price. I was a little leary of sending my cards by mail, but Dean's website and email instructions were so detailed and informative, I felt comfortable that he was legit. Many of my cards were in only fair condition, so my collection yielded $265.00, but much better than continuing to collect dust in my closet. Dean was fair, honest, extremely responsive, and very very fast. Thank you Dean for making it so easy!

Oct 04 2007

Quick and Fair Offer, Whole Deal Only Took a week from me sending my cards to receiving my check. Will Definately do business again.

Sep 17 2007

Dealing with Dean has been a painlessly simple process. Initial and continuing contact through email is a breeze. Upon first contact Dean was very fast in his reply. I had in my possession about 4,000 baseball cards with nearly complete sets ranging from 1957 through 1961 and later in better than very good condition. Although I regret not having any superstars included with the sets, Dean provided a fair value for the entire collection at over $1,000 which I gladly accepted. From the moment I sent the cards to Dean the entire process was completed in less than a week! Dean's service is impeccible! I highly recommend Dean's Cards to anyone interested in selling their collections! His services and response times are second to none!

Sep 13 2007

Thank you for purchasing my daughter's card collection which she accumulated during the years circa 1966 to 1971. You made it very easy to conduct the transaction and we feel offered a fair pricefor the collection. Your responses were prompt and friendly and I certainly would recommendyou to any else selling or buying cards. ron linton

Sep 07 2007

I found Dean's Cards as a link when I was trying to purchase three cards to complete my collection of "Freedom's War Cards". I purchased the cards from Dean's an told him I had approximately 200 excess cards from that collection and offered to sell them to Dean. He responded in a timely and detailed manner and explained the process fully. I sent the cards to him and within three days he responded with an offer to purchase my cards for $320 which I found very reasonable. I accepted his offer with an overall great experience, was treated fairly, and would recommend Dean's Cards to anyyone interested in purchasing or selling collectible cards. One of the true professionals around.

Aug 06 2007

I wanted to sell some duplicate baseball cards I had in my collection from the mid-1960's, the majority of which were 1969 and 1970. Dean responded very promptly to my inquiries, made the whole process very easy, and paid what I felt was a fair price for the cards I was selling, which were not in the greatest of shape. I opted to take a store credit for the cards and used it to buy cards I needed to fill out my 1970 set. Overall, the experience of dealing with Dean was extremely satisfactory, and I would recommend his services to anyone who was looking to buy or sell cards. Thanks Dean! It's nice to come across someone with such good business practices.

ROB on Jul 05 2007

MY EXPERIENCE WITH DEANS CARDS WAS EXTREMELY FAVORABLE. I SENT DEAN A LARGE LOT OF VINTAGE 1968-71 CARDS. DEAN HAD SENT ME INFORMATION BEFOREHAND. ONE INTERESTING ITEM WAS THE LONG LIST THAT IS REQUIRED BY HIS COMPANY IN DETERMINING PRICING, ORGANIZING EACH CARD, ETC,ETC. I FEEL WHAT MANY TRADERS MIGHT FEEL IS THAT DEANS CARDS COULD OFFER MORE MONEY TO THE SELLER. WHAT EACH SELLER MUST REALIZE IS THE HIGH COST IT TAKES FOR DEANS EMPLOYEES TO WORK ON YOUR CARDS. BESIDES THAT, DEANS CARDS HAS EXPENSES SUCH AS UTILITY BILLS, WAGES, RENT, ETC TO COVER. THEREFORE IT IS IMPOSSIBLE TO GET PRICING YOU MIGHT THINK IS WORTH THE CARDS VALUES. THE PRICING YOU DO GET IS FAIR, HOWEVER. I HAD MY CARDS FOR OVER 40 YEARS AND TO ME THEY ARE WORTH A MILLION DOLLARS. OF COURSE REALITY CANT ALLOW THAT. TO ALL SELLERS, MY POINT IS TO BE OPEN-MINDED WHEN DEALING YOUR CARDS TO DEAN. ITS TOUGH TO SEE MY CHILDHOOD CARDS GO, BUT I FEEL THEY HAVE GONE TO A GREAT COMPANY. I RECOMMEND DEANS CARDS TO ANY BODY OUT THERE. I HOPE TO DO BUSINESS AGAIN SOMEDAY WITH DEANS CARDS. GOOD LUCK TO ALL THE EMPLOYEES AT DEANS AND THANK YOU FOR TREATING ME AS A VALUED CLIENT. ROB Very Happy

Art Kevorkian; Berlin, CT on Jul 05 2007

I have used Dean's Cards several times in the last two months to sell several batches of baseball and football cards. I have used several other dealers over the same time as I am slowly selling my collection of over 20,000+ cards. I have found Dean's prices to be reasonable and within the "ballpark" of other dealers. More importantly he is quite prompt in giving me a quote and once an agreement on price is met he is extremely prompt in sending out a check. I am currently waiting over two weeks from another dealer! I would highly recommend Dean. ~Art Kevorkian; Berlin, CT

jha71857 Sterling, Illinois on Jul 04 2007

Just a quick note to say I was happy selling about 500 pieces of semi-vintage cards to Dean. He has spent a lot of time providing info on his website to make an informed decision about the process of selling cards. The total value was $43 and he rounded it UP to $45!!! Very nice. Great communication, and rocket check. I would not hesitate to use Dean's Cards again when I have cards to sell. Thanks again, jha71857 Sterling, Illinois

Bill Drippon Cleveland,Ohio on Jun 28 2007

To anyone who is thinking of buying or selling cards from Deans Cards all i can say you should check with Deans first before you waste your time with any other card co. they were upfront and honest right from the beginning with me when i wanted to sell my collection of Baseball cards from the 50s and 60s.I sent my collection on a Monday and they e-mail a bid on Wed.,which was more than fair .I would highly recommend Deans Cards to anyone who is thinking of buying or selling cards.In closing i would like to Thank Dean for the way he treated me in selling my cards Thanks again. Bill Drippon Cleveland,Ohio

PB on Jun 16 2007

I just wanted to mention that my experience with DeanCards was a very pleasant one. Dean is very professional and very responsible. As stated, he got back to me within 2 days with an offer (once he had received my cards). Very reliable and great timely e-mail correspondence. ~PB

Douglas Ruby on Apr 17 2007

I was afraid of sending my cards at first.But Dean answered all my e mails ,and telephone calls, even on sunday.He gave me an idea what the cards were worth,and gave my a great price. I was also aware that Dean has to be aware of fake cards,thats why I was not afraid to send then.Dean told me all about packaging ,and shipping. I would go to Dean again, or recommend someone to him.Best of luck Dean. Thanks Douglas Ruby

Rock on Feb 12 2007

I recently decided to sell football cards I had since I was a youngster (1958-1961). DEAN made the process very simple. Once I sent him my collection, he responded within two days with an offer I thought was very fair. (I had researched the values before taking this step.) Within 2 days I had the check. Thanks Dean Rock

Jan 30 2007

I want to thank Dean for being a straight-up, honest business man. He did what he said he would and even more. It's rare to encounter ethical people like Dean, but I'm happy I did business with him. He paid me promptly and handled all my concerns by phone. A+

Jan 24 2007

If you are one of those people who thinks that the feedback section on a company's website can be "suspect" I'd like to correct that notion as it applies to Dean's Cards.. In the infamous words of Al Pacino in A Scent Of A Woman, I'm here to tell you when it comes to Internet commerce "I've been around, you know!" I just sold my baseball card collection from the 50's along with 25 autographed baseballs, most of which I got from Hall of Famers myself, to Dean. Besides their incredible attentiveness and sense of urgency as it pertains to responding to e-mail inquiries, the process was painless and fair. If you are sitting on the fence, unsure of whether you should trust this firm in Cincinnati, and send them your prized collection, I encourage you to do so! Worst case it will be returned if a fair price cannot be negotiated. So bravo to Dean's Cards! An electronic standing ovation from this satisfied customer.

Rob on Jan 09 2007

I sold my card collection to Dean. Fast turn-around, prompt payment, good communication, good price, and great communication! Thanks Dean! I recommend Dean without hesitation. Thanks, Rob

Mr. Met Scotia, NY on Dec 30 2006

This fall, I finally decided to dispose of my card collection from childhood (baseball and football from 1952-59) and looked into various ways of selling them with the least amount of hassle. After checking several internet sites, I focused on Dean's Cards and sent an email to Dean with a list of my football cards. I received a prompt reply and sent off my small football sollection for appriasal and purchase. Within a few days, I received a reasonable offer, agreed to it and promptly received a check. I then listed and self-evaluated my baseball card collection and sent them off to Dean. We again agreed to a price and the check was quickly sent. Given the number of scams in cyberspace, I realize it takes a pretty big leap of faith to send a couple thousand cards to some person like Dean on the Internet. If it's of any help, I can say that once I started the process, I had nothing but a good response from Dean and good vibes about the person I was dealing with. I'd strongly recommend that you give Dean's Cards a try when you're ready to say goodbye to your old baseball card friends. It was an easy process and it's good to know that my cards will eventually be in the hands of those who will appreciate them. Most importantly, given the contents and condition of my cards, I believe I received a realistic value for the collection. Mr. Met Scotia, NY

Bill on Dec 26 2006

They were quick and fair with the price offer on my cards ~Thanks Bill

Andrew in Philadelphia PA on Dec 15 2006

I had a couple of hundred baseball cards from the 50's but didn't have a clue how to sell them. Or even if anybody would want to buy them. I found Dean's Cards while browsing the internet. The site was so straightforward and informative. Dean answered all my questions promptly. I sent him the cards and a week later I had a check for $635! I couldn't be happier. Andrew in Philadelphia PA

Nov 16 2006

Dean was both helpful, in promptly responding to my concerns, and informative, in sharing his knowledge and experience, with regards to selling my baseball card collection. I believe I received a fair price for my collection, and would defintely consider contacting Dean concerning any future sale of my collectibles.

Aug 20 2006

I found Dean's website when I was searching for buyers of vintage sports magazines on the Internet. I contacted Dean's website and had an answer from him within the hour [In fact every correspondence has been answered with the same efficiency]. I then had the pleasure of actually meeting Dean and many of his staff when I visited his business on my way to a Cincinnati Reds baseball game. I left my magazines and a few other items with Dean. Being a former cardshop owner I had a minimum dollar amount that I expected to receive for my magazine collection. Dean's price was almost double the price that I had expected to receive!!!!!!!! I will continue to do business with Dean's. I will also recommend Dean's to all my former customers who contact me from time to time [some of them still think my cardshop is open....I closed it in 1996]!

Aug 07 2006

Newbie…I had a group of cards from the late 50s and early 60s that I decided to sell – a Mantle ’57 and ‘61, Ernie Banks rookie, Mays ’56, Snider ’56, some Yaz, a Maris, etc. –typical of a 50-year old with a small collection. After a Google search, I came upon Dean’s Cards, primarily doing research into how I should go about selling the cards. At this point I’m thinking “eBay” and dreading the experience. Long story short: I e-mailed Dean on Tuesday, got a reply within the hour, liked what I heard (and what I read on the site) and sent the cards out that day. Dean got the cards on Thursday morning of the same week and made me what I considered a fair offer later that same afternoon. I received the check in the mail the following Tuesday – one week from start to finish. I’m still amazed at how fast this all came about. I came away from the experience impressed at the speed with which my transaction took place, as well as Dean’s honesty and professionalism. I will not hesitate to recommend Dean’s Cards to my friends, many of whom will be cleaning out their closets searching for their cards based on my favorable experience.

Jul 16 2006

Dean just bought my almost full set of 1960 Topps baseball cards. He gave me clear feedback on the condition of several top cards and gave me a fair price. We completed the entire deal in just over a week. Read his notes on why it is foolish to sell your own cards - I was convinced Dean was correct - and he proved it on this deal. I will be back again.

I just recently sold my 1970-1977 complete football card sets and some misc. older football singles to Dean's Cards for $1,200.00. They have been great to work with, they communicate well, very up front, and timely in replying to e-mail correspondence. I was given a quote the same day my cards arrived at Dean's and recieved a check within a couple of days of coming to an agreement for the purchase of my collection! From Ohio to Idaho!

I recently sold some of my vintage(1957-1959)Topps baseball cards to Dean. He was a very knowledgeable and professional person. After explaining how cards were valued,by their condition,his offer was fair. He even helped me with choosing the best way to ship my cards,from California to Ohio. I would definetly recommend him to anyone who may be in the market for selling vintage baseball or football cards. You need not worry about his integrity. I look forward to doing more business with him in the future.

I was very satisfied in my dealings with Dean. I sold him my 1956, 1958, 1960 and partial 1957 baseball sets that I had put together myself some years ago. I knew what they were worth and still was very happy with the price I received from Dean. I can attest that Dean is a very professional, standup guy who realizes that how you treat people is just as important as the price he pays for your cards. In dealing with probably hundreds of dealers at hundreds of shows, I can honestly say that Dean ranks near the top when it comes to fairness and integrity. Thanks Dean

My collection consisted of approx. 25 1950's-80's prominent , ungraded singles. Dean was very efficient and prompt in his correspondence with me. We were able to negotiate a fair offer within 48 hours of him receiving my cards. Dean made the selling experience very simple. The most important factor is the feeling of security in knowing you are doing business with a reputable and trustworthy company who will handle your collection with care and pay you fairly for it. ~Steve T - Las Vegas

I sold Dean my Beatles, hockey, football, baseball, and some variables for $625. I had no problem sending them from Mass. to Ohio without worrying if I'd ever see them or get paid in return. Although we all expect to get big bucks in return, Dean is up front about what to expect. Everything was completed within a week. I highly recommend Dean to everyone!

I recently decided to sell my Salada and Armour Baseball coin collection from the 1960's. I did some re on the internet and came up with some pricing and then send a list to three sites who indicated they would buy them. Only two responded and Dean's cards were by far the most professional and easy to work with. His web site is perfect as a tool to educate the non-professional collector as to what to expect. Once he was contacted, he quickly responded by e-mail and explained his overall philosophy and why he is in the business. We exchanged several e-mails and eventually talked on the phone. He was never to busy or impatient. He runs his business the way it should be run and treats you with respect. I felt very comfortable sending him my collection to view and fully expected him to send it back, if necessary. His customer service skills are exc nt. In an industry where it is not always easy to trust those you meet, he is the exception. I would recommend him to all and would do business with him again.

Hello fellow brother, I just last week sold my 60s and 70s collection to Dean. I am not sure how many cards there were, but I am guessing there were more than 450 cards in the collection. Dean was very accommodating and fair in his treatment of my collection, and I found him to be quite polite in our correspondence. Just yesterday I received my much needed check- five days after our agreement was settled! Being an amateur, I am not sure how much the collection is worth, but I believe Dean to be very honest and reasonable in his dealings with me. I highly recommend him to anyone - buyer or seller - who is interested in card collecting. Should the dear reader of this post want any further testimony, please, please, please email me at LiveMichael@iwon.com (anytime!). Thank you. - The Sandy Beach Bum

I had been holding on to aprrox. 2000 cards that I had bought as a youth in the 60"s. I wanted a quick and easy way to sell the cards because I was tired of dragging them around. I had no emotional ties to the cards. I found Dean's site on the Yahoo search engine. After viewing his site I decided to take a chance and send him half of my collection. I must admit that I was disapointed that my cards we're not worth more I felt I was treated fairly. If i had more cards to sell I would'nt hesitate to sell them to Dean's.

I sold my vintage baseball card collection of to Dean's Cards in August. I'd been visiting Beckett's web site as well as eBay to see what was involved in selling my baseball cards (a ton of trouble!). A Google search found deanscards.com, which I found quite informative and straightforward. I emailed Dean who replied (in detail) to some of my concerns about sending cards to a stranger. I must have emailed him 3-4 times before I decided to ship my collection. He quickly made an offer that I thought was essentially fair-I thought they were worth more of course. Another round of emails and the deal was done. I was quite impressed with Dean's sense of integrity, as well as patience to quell my misgivings. Based on my exchange with him, I would strongly recommend doing business with Dean's Cards. :-)

I sold my baseball cards that I have had sitting around for over 40 years simply because I need money in order to take my life in a new direction. Otherwise, I'd still have them. Baseball cards are really only worth what someone is willing to pay you for them. I could have possibly grossed more money from my cards if I had marketed them myself, but when one starts calculating the cost of locating buyers, communicating with them, and shipping the cards (not to mention the value of the time spent doing all this), it readily becomes apparent that selling to Dean and letting him worry about getting top dollar for the cards is a no-brainer. Dean paid me $1,500 for my cards, which I think is a very fair price. Communicating with him was quick and easy, and the actual transaction, from my shipping the cards to the check arriving, took less than a week. I found Dean to be both courteous and trustworthy, and I highly recommend him to others who have collections to sell. --PC :smt045

I recently sold my childhood collection of cards to Dean. I read closely his website's advice on selling cards and understood that when you sell something that the buyer has to have room to make a profit. I feel that Dean treated me and my collection with great respect. When you keep a collection for over 40 years you become attached to it. I feel that I received a very fair offer for my cards. Communication was great and payment was prompt. I had offered my cards to several other buyers but Dean was by far the best to deal with. I am glad I dealt with Dean!!!

Contacted Dean about a few hundred 1962 Topps baseball cards. Reply received the same day which included a good deal of useful information about the business of buying and selling of sports cards and what to expect in terms of the value of the cards. Went on vacation for two weeks, recontacted Dean upon return, received same day reply. FedExed cards to Dean, received email acknowledging receipt the next day. The following day received estimated value of $322 which Dean rounded up to $350. Bid was accepted. Received email the following day indicating the check was in the mail. Check for $350 arrived three days later. Check was deposited and cleared in three days. The whole operation was smooth and professional especially given the potential for disappointment. Dean was true to his word.

I found my transaction with Dean's Cards to be very positive. I sold approximately 50,000 cards during my transaction, and the people at Dean's were very thorough, upfront, honest and professional with me. I was notified of when the cards arrived at their business, and they quickly yet thoroughly analyzed the collection. The purchase price was fair, and payment from them was very prompt. If you're thinking of selling your collection, I would certainly put Dean's Cards very high on your list of potential buyers.

I recently contacted Dean about selling my 1958 Topps Baseball Set. He was so quick to get back to me with information that I couldn't believe it! After sending the cards to him he contacted me with an offer that same day! The offer was very fair and after a day to think about it I accepted his offer. He mailed the check that same day and I received it 2 days later! If that isn't the best service ever, I don't know what is! If anyone has reservations about using Dean for a transaction, don't, as this guy is a CLASS ACT!!!!! I would highly recommend him! Thanks, Dean I'm even going to send him some more things do make an offer on.
