Frequently Asked Questions

Q:  How long does it take to get the cards I ordered in the mail?
A:  I usually ship cards the following business day via USPS first class mail.  Once shipped, orders typically arrive in 3 to 7 days.  Keep in mind the post office can be slow at times.  Packages taking more than 7 days is uncommon, but does happen now & then.  Feel free to e-mail to check the status of your order.  For orders outside the United States, expect to get your cards anywhere from 5 to 20 days.  If you need the cards faster e-mail or call Chuck at 423-531-8909.  Also, please understand this is a sole proprietorship, meaning, this is a 1 person operation.  If I get sick, or go on vacation, or have a family emergency, the shipping time may be longer.  When possible, I will post a message below if I am away.

*** I will be away July 29 - Aug 4, 2014.  All orders placed during that time will ship on Aug 5th. ***

Q:  How do you ship the cards?
A:  All cards are shipped in soft sleeve and hard plastic top loaders inside bubble padded mailers.  Orders ship USPS 1st class mail.

Q:  How much is shipping?
A:  Shipping rates can be found here.

Q:  How can I pay you?
A:  You may pay by PayPal, credit card, check, or money order.  I accept Visa, Master Card, Amex, and Discover.

Q:  Do you buy or trade cards?
A:  I prefer to buy rather than trade.  I only buy cards on my Baseball Card Wantlist.  Also, if you're looking for a way to sell your cards, check out the How to Sell Your Cards page

Q:  How do I know I will receive my cards once you receive my payment?
A:  If this is a concern to you, I understand.  I kindly ask you to view my Testimonials Page.  I also have a 100% feedback rating on eBay.  Once there, you can read all the transactions I've done on eBay and people's responses to the transactions.  Also, if you feel more comfortable hearing a human voice rather than communicating through a computer screen, my phone number is 423-531-8909.  Ask for Chuck. :)

Q:  Are all of your cards in Mint condition?
A:  The condition of each card is specified on each page.  Keep in mind, I am not an expert grader.  I do look at each card I sell, and I grade it by eyeballing it, checking the corners, making sure it's free of stains and creases, etc.  Professional graders spend enormous amounts of time meticulously studying each card they grade.  They charge a fee for their service and rightfully so.  Since I am not a professional grader, and I do not charge a fee for grading, I will not be held liable if my non-professional grade does not match up with a professional's grade if you submit your card for grading.  However, if the card does not meet your condition standards before you submit it for grading, you may send the card back to me for a full refund, and I will pay for postage as well.

Q:  Do you have any other cards besides the ones listed on your site?
A:  I might!   E-mail and let me know which cards you're looking for and I'll let you know what I have.

Q:  Can you tell me how much this particular card(s) I have is worth?
A:  I get asked this question more often than any other question combined, and unfortunately, I usually do not have the time to answer your specific request.  There are sites on the Internet that sell price guides, and I have listed a few of them listed on the Price Guides page.  Or you could visit your local card dealer (look in your yellow pages under "sports cards" or "sports memorabilia") and show them your card(s) in person, and they might be able to tell you its value.  I wouldn't recommend calling though, since some dealers get swarmed with these calls and it's a time consuming process and doesn't generate any money for their time.  Ditto if you email dealers.

Q:  I'm looking for some cards to complete my set.  Can you help me?
A:  Unfortunately, no. I don't have boxes of commons like some dealers do. 

Q:  Do you give discounts?
A:  No.  However, the Rookie Card Team Sets are typically discounted.

Q:  How do I get my cards graded?
A:  There are many grading companies out there that will grade your cards for a fee.  The most popular are:  PSA and BGS.

Q:  Do you have any graded cards for sale?
A:  Nope.
