  • 1950s 1960s Baseball Cards Sold by The Best Collectibles NJ

     

    We recently had a great collection of 1950s & 1960s come through we sent some of the best of them away for grading. When you have vintage cards it is important that you have someone with an eye for grading. The difference in the value of a card that grades in the 7+ range and one with a more average grade could be thousands of dollars. Here at collectibles NJ we will individually review your baseball card collection to determine if cards are worth sending away.  It is important to note most cards even if they appear to be perfect to the eye may often have defects to the cardboard and are seldom going to get a 9 or 10.

    Some other problems that older cards have are that many may be altered or trimmed. A good way to tell is to compare them to other cards from the same year and set to see if they match up. Trimming is a process of cutting the edges to improve the overall appearance of a card. Graders will catch this every time and its something to be careful with when purchasing 1950s 1960s or other older cards.

    If you have a vintage card collection and would like an evaluation we can provide you with an expert opinion and advisement we are happy to take a look. Since we do not purchase anything you can be sure we will give you an honest value and accurate opinion. If you would like to set up a consultation please feel free to contact us via phone or email or via the link embedded in the bottom of the page. Your information will not be made public. Here at Collectibles NJ we will represent your best interests when dealing with your valuable asset in the form of a vintage baseball card collection.

     



  • Sell inherited toys & Collectibles – What to do and how to value and protect collectibles left to you

    Some people inherit houses, some people inherit businesses, some people inherit nothing….. Others inherit collectibles. When someone passes the last thing on someones mind is what they are going to do with the toy/comic/doll collection they have recently been bequeathed with. Once respect and time is paid often people who have inherited collectibles which range from small collections to houses full of content; many ask themselves what do I do now?

    Many people will then begin the process of painstakingly investigating every item on the internet to determine it’s value, if it has value or not etc. Many people can feel overwhelmed and dedicate hours and hours to the pursuit. I am going to give some general advice and tips on how to handle the situation.

    Tip#1 – What genre of item is this, what does the market tell you about the item?

    Most collectible items fall into a genre or category some examples include the following I am going to use one of items most frequently brought by our clients and sold by our company

    Decorative Collectibles/Knick-Knacks/Figurines- This includes a variety of statues usually the “Name brand ones” will have some value to them. Most are not worth what they used to be when mom used to tell to not to dare touch her Hummel cabinet. Some important (this means usually has SOME value) brands include:

    • Hummel,
    • Lladro,
    • Armani,
    • Anri,
    • Swarovski,
    • Lalique,
    • Royal Doulton
    • Waterford
    • and Murano.

    There are others but these are the most commonly found.

    Brands no longer worth much in this realm include:

    • Mikasa
    • Lenox
    • Enesco
    • Norman Rockwell
    • Lead cut Crystal
    • Noritaki (some antique exception)

    You can use ebay and other internet sources to get an idea of what might be worth something. While an expert like someone from our company could like look over the content of the house in hours and sort the whole house by worth something/not worth something (a service we offer often for free or at a small fee at Collectibles NJ depending on content and scope of the job) the regular person is left with this as step one. You can then basically do the whole thing for all obvious collectibles left in the house.

    IMPORTANT: Keep friends and family out of the house as they will often start asking for things that happen to be of significant value for “sentimental” reasons. Many collections have been picked apart before the inheritor could realize the value of what they had. Keep vendors, estate sellers or anyone trying to offer to buy things off the premises as well. Protect yourself in case you have something of value. They’ll be a time and place for selling things and its after its been parsed from the leftovers/junk/low or no value contents.

    The biggest rip offs contents of house and collection buyouts probably occur in the following genres. Buyers are aggressive and try to get in early:

    • Model Cars,
    • Comic Books
    • Lionel Trains
    • Vintage Toys
    • Baseball Cards

    Now I am going to give you tip #2 DON’T DO IT! DON’T SPEND YOUR HOURS just bring in a professional that DOESN’T work the way cash buyers do. Where will you find one? You won’t but…..

     

    Collectibles NJ Can help you rest easy knowing you didn’t get ripped off and we can tell you if the items in the house are collectible or valuable or not. Since we DO NOT make cash offers  we do not have the conflict of interest other buyers might and our business was designed to help people with a large quantity of items. We can provide you with a variety of advice that can save you thousands of dollars and hundreds of hours. If you have inherited a large amount of collectibles don’t swim with the sharks, fly with the eagles here at Collectibles NJ and I can guarantee we will be able to represent your best interests. We are the only company of our kind and our reviews prove it.

     

    Fell free to contact us using the information in the upper right hand corner of the page or privately through this form if you have inherited a large amount of Collectibles anywhere in the country and we would be happy at very least to discuss your situation.

     

     

     

     



  • A September to Remember Collectibles NJ Sells Lone Ranger Collection Silver Age Comics & Lladro’s Holy Grail

    Well it was quite the September as we had a near complete Gabriel Lone Ranger collection from waaaaaaaay up North Jersey. I have to question whether him and Tonto would have gotten up Mt Arlington on horseback to retrieve this massive collection. Collectibles NJ however would not be stopped! We had some very cool very key silver age comics walk into our Metuchen location, great story original owner bought em, read em and put em away since he was a kid. I bet everyone wishes they were that smart!!! I am not surprised since he let our company handle the sale it was obvious he had at least one super power….. Making the best choice to sell a comic book collection in NJ without getting ripped off.

    Last but not least we arrived on location to find a 100lb 5 foot statue of Cinderella’s carriage staring right at us in a glass case. The woman had misplaced the key! Fear not Collectibles NJ whether buying comics toys or Lladro’s always keeps our clients best interests at heart. So after playing locksmith for a while to no avail we actually dismantled the case for her saving hundreds in fees in having the lock opened.

    We are looking forward to seeing how you guys will top yourselves with amazing collections acquired or inherited that are big enough to qualify for our unique and personal service. If you would like to have your collection evaluated and find out exactly why people would give us all of the best largest and most valuable collections ever seen then please reach out through phone email or even through the form located in the bottom of this page, don’t worry we will never publicize or sell your information.
