Whether you’re looking to flip your sports cards or sell your collection, I wanted to talk about the many options you have available to you online if you want to sell sports cards.
Believe it or not, there are a lot of options available to you, most of which bring in a lot of buyer traffic. As always, everything I promise is 100% legitimate, so let’s dive in.
Best Sites & Apps to Sell Sports Cards Online
Of course, let’s start with the obvious – eBay. This powerhouse allows you to sell just about anything, and it’s still the number one auction house for a reason. As I’m writing this, I see more than 20 million sports card listings.
Most sports card collectors often go to eBay to browse, but keep in mind that you must have great feedback in order for people to trust you and pay top dollar for your cards.
At the moment, creating a listing is free for the first 150 or so, but you will have to pay a 10%~ commission fee once your card sells. Let’s not forget the shipping, either. The nice thing is that you can get paid almost instantly via PayPal once your listing ends.

Beckett is one of the more popular names in the sports card world. Millions of cards are listed here and you’re welcome to do the same.
To start selling, you will want to head to the menu and then click on organize. When you create an account, you can then start adding your collection and sell any cards on the Beckett Marketplace. Set your price and publish the listing.

The Facebook Marketplace has slowly taken over Craigslist as the go-to website to find items both big and small. No matter what you have, you may want to consider listing your sports cards to see if there are any takers.
Even if you don’t want to meet in person, you can always ship your cards off to avoid a meetup.
Listing on the marketplace is free.
NOTE: Aside from the marketplace, look for local groups as well to see if there are any buyers interested in your collection.

StockX works similar to that of an auction site, where you can sell your sports cards.
When you list your cards, you will set the minimum bid expected just like eBay. Then, people will place bids.
Once a bid meets your minimum reserve, then your item sells. What makes the website different is that you will have to ship your items to StockX before it goes to the buyer. This verification process gives the buyer peace of mind knowing what they are buying is, indeed, legit.

This is a newer player to the game, but I love the concept. What makes them unique is that when someone buys the card, they own it instantly and can even resell it immediately using the platform.
If you sell your cards on the platform, you will have to send in your cards to the company, as long as they are accepting what you have. You can see what they are currently accepting on the selling page.
From there, once your card can go up for sale and buyers can bid on your cards. Even if your cards aren’t listed yet, they can place a bid. Once sold, your card now goes to their account.

SportsCardsPro offers a no-fee marketplace, where you buy and sell sports cards.
The platform seemed to have a bunch of listings, so it may be one to check out. It’s free to list, so I say why not?
To get started, the link below will take you to the selling page, where you will let them know what kind of cards you have to sell. You will just have to create an account to get started.

OfferUp is one of the largest online marketplaces where you can sell almost anything. It’s like eBay, but you will more than likely have to meet in person to collect your cash.
To start selling, it’s as easy as uploading your pictures, creating a description and then setting your price. If someone is interested, they will message you, where you can work out the details.
And, if you’re uncomfortable in meeting people, you can always ship on the app as well, but this will entail a small selling fee.

Blowout forums is one of the largest sports card forums on the internet, where you can discuss cards as well as offer what you have up for sale.
No matter what kind of cards you have, they have a marketplace for it. It won’t be as active as the many options mentioned here, but check out the rules and guidelines before selling to make sure your post doesn’t get deleted. It’s one to at least check out.

PSA forums is another to check out and works in the same way as the Blowout forums. The marketplace doesn’t look as active as the other, but again, I try to add as much to my list to give you as many options as possible.
Take a look at what people are selling as well as what people are looking for to get an idea as to what may do well.

COMC is different in that they will sell your cards for you, but you can sell on your own if you choose to do so as well. If you do use their selling service, they identify the card, scan it, list it and then ship it off to the buyer. All you have to do is to ship in your collection.
To get started, you can check out how the process via the link below.

Dave & Adam’s
This is a company I had found while doing research for this guide. Directly on the website, you will find a “buy list,” where you can see what kind of trading cards/boxes they are purchasing at the moment. You can also e-mail them for a bid as well if interested.

Kruk Cards is another retailer that wants to buy sports cards from you.
According to the company, they will buy everything from “one autographed card to entire warehouses full of inventory.”
The company has been in business for more than 30 years and may be interested in your collection.

TonyeTrade, another sports card retailer, may be interested in your sports card collection as well.
They say no one outbids them and has proof, at least according to the website videos.
To get a quote, follow the link below and then follow the sell tab in the top menu to start the process.

Local Sports Card Store
Lastly, look for a sports card or hobby shop near you and call them up to see if they buy cards. In many cases, you will find that they will say yes.
The nice thing about this is that you can sell your cards on the spot and you know you won’t get scammed since you’re dealing with a legitimate business. The only downfall is that the offer may be less than what you can get online. Of course, the shop owner has to make a profit.
To find a sports card store near you, just search for “sports card near me” or “hobby shop near me” on Google to see what’s nearby. Depending on where you live, you may have a few stores to consider.
Whether your sports card collection is massive or small, I hope one of these options will do the trick.
If you want to get top dollar, then eBay is almost always your best bet, but if you don’t want to deal with the public and don’t care what you get, then selling to one of those online retailers may do the trick.
That’s going to do it for now.
As always, if you want to add to this list or comment on the companies mentioned, then you’re more than welcome to leave a comment below.
