Ever Wondered, "Who Buys the Most Vintage Baseball Cards in the Hobby?"

Dean Hanley

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.

Michelle Wall

Purchasing Manager

Michelle corresponds with sellers of vintage sports card collections regularly, working closely with Dean to acquire hundreds of private collections per year.  Additionally, Michelle has built more vintage sets than any other woman on the planet.  She manages the virtual construction of the more than 20,000 sets Dean’s Cards has to offer.  She oversees the maintenance of all set types including complete sets, near complete sets, starter sets, and team sets, as well as custom built sets.  

Dean's Cards has 14 employees, and our online inventory has grown to more than one million vintage baseball cards, football cards, other sports cards and non-sports cards.  We buy and sell more vintage baseball cards than anyone else in the world.  Dean is still involved with each of the card collections that we acquire, but as the number of collections that we purchase has grown rapidly over the years it has become impossible for Dean to handle each step of the process by himself.  Dean utilizes a talented team to maintain the high level of service that he insists on providing.
