The process of setting up auctions to sell your sports cards can be a daunting and mundane task. Creating high-quality images, understanding SEO, and managing the customer experience is a lot of work and you’ve got better things to do with your time.

Wanna sell your sports cards but don’t wanna deal with the headache of doing it?
Let us do it for you.

Welcome to the auction arm of Radicards®. With over 30 years of category knowledge and nearly half as much time of academic and professional business experience, I offer my clients a unique blend of passion and expertise. We want to bring you a consignment experience that saves you time and makes you money. Here are the details:


Fee Structure:

We cover the eBay and PayPal fees.*

Changes as of March 1, 2021: Because eBay fees are 12.35% for trading cards, we’ve changed our buyer’s premiums to a more flat rate structure both for simplicity and to protect our time. Our rates aren’t the lowest but when you work with us, you get some of the best service in the industry.

Our services include:

  • High Resolution Scans (600dpi)
  • SEO-rich titles and descriptions to help promote high performing page ranks
  • Chronicled auction archives for future reference
  • Robust market exposure through a variety of formats i.e., email, social, video, podcast, and blog

Our Mission is to provide excellent service, fast shipping, sound judgement, and a commitment to honesty and integrity.

TO ENSURE ITEMS MEET OUR AUCTION VALUE MINIMUMS, ALL ITEMS MUST BE QUALIFIED BEFORE THEY ARE SENT TO US FOR AUCTION. See terms below for details.*

► Individual Graded Cards:

This category is exclusive to cards graded by BGS, BVG, GAI, PSA, and SGC. Graded tickets, packs, and cut autographs fall into this category. All in-person or through-the-mail (TTM) signed cards must be authenticated and slabbed by PSA/DNA or Beckett Authentication Services (BAS). Qualified submissions require a $20 minimum auction value.

► Individual Ungraded (Raw) Cards:

This category includes all cards graded by companies other than those stated in the Individual Graded Cards category i.e., BCCG, GEM, GMA, KSA, USA, etc. Qualified submissions require a $25 minimum auction value.

Identifying the Current Market Value of Your Items:

Terms and Conditions:

By consigning items with Radicards®, you agree to the following terms:
QUALIFICATION: TO ENSURE ITEMS MEET OUR AUCTION VALUE MINIMUMS, ALL ITEMS MUST BE QUALIFIED BEFORE THEY ARE SENT TO US FOR AUCTION. ALL UNQUALIFIED ITEMS SENT TO US THAT DO NOT MEET OUR AUCTION VALUE MINIMUMS WILL BE TREATED AS DONATIONS AND WILL NOT BE RETURNED TO YOU. The qualification process is simple, just send us a message via our Contact Us page and attach images of what you want us to auction. We will respond with a yay or nay.
Authentication/Grading: As a seller, all authenticated/graded items are sold “as is.” These items are certified by third parties and we are not responsible for investigating or evaluating the authenticity or grade confirmed by any third party service.
Ownership: You are the legal owner of the items and have the right to sell them. If they are on any set registries, please remove them before sending them to us.
Honesty: You confirm that all statements regarding quantity, condition, authenticity, and associated information of submitted items are accurate to the best of your knowledge.
Re-Listing: While it’s rare, sometimes winning bidders fail to remit payment. Should this happen, we will run the associated action again in an effort to complete the transaction with a paying bidder. WE DO/WILL NOT RETURN ITEMS THAT HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED TO US FOR AUCTION. We reserve the right to block non-paying bidders from future auctions.
Shill Bidding: You agree not to bid on, or arrange bidding on auctions that include your item(s) with the intent to drive up final sale price. Bidding on your own items to drive up final values is called “shill bidding,” which is highly unethical and goes against eBay policy. If we confirm you have, or have arranged others to shill bid your item(s), we reserve the right to terminate our business relationship.
INDEMNIFICATION: YOU AGREE TO INDEMNIFY, DEFEND AND HOLD HARMLESS RADICARDS®, AND/OR ANY OF ITS AFFILIATED ENTITIES, HARMLESS FROM ANY FINANCIAL LOSS, INCLUDING LEGAL FEES, ASSOCIATED WITH CONSIGNING WITH RADICARDS®.
