Meet the Dean's Cards Buying Team
Ever Wondered, "Who Buys the Most Vintage Baseball Cards in the Hobby?"
Founder of Dean's Cards
In 2003, Dean founded Dean's Cards in his Cincinnati, OH basement, using his background in marketing and software to turn his hobby of collecting baseball cards into his dream job. The company hit the ground running and has remained Dean's full-time gig ever since, now boasting an inventory of over one million vintage cards. Dean is considered one of the foremost experts on the subject of vintage baseball cards and has also written two books on vintage sports cards: The Bubble Gum Card War: The Great Bowman & Topps Sets from 1948 to 1955 and Before There Was Bubble Gum: Our Favorite Pre-World War I Baseball Cards, as well as several articles in Sports Collectors Digest. He credits the company's success to top-line service and the integration of new technology with an old hobby.
