Vintage Breaks Purchases 1973 Topps Baseball Card Collection


We purchased a collection of 1973 Topps baseball cards including legends such as Roberto Clemente, Hank Aaron, Willie Mays, and more! Did you know that we BUY collections here at Vintage Breaks?

Steve collected cards in the 1960's and 1970's. Over the years, he kept a batch of over 500 cards from the 1973 Topps baseball card set. Living near our retail store here in Millburn, NJ. Steve wanted to stop by to see if we were interested in purchasing his collection. Did you know that we DO buy collections here here at Vintage Breaks?

Not only do we have live card breaks for you, with vintage packs and boxes, modern releases, and we're the world's leader in set breaks, we also buy collections at Vintage Breaks.

While you recognize me as "J5" during your breaks, my full name is John and I am a vintage card specialist.  Your local card shop is generally not well equipped to appraise or purchase vintage cards or collections. The retail stores are focused on selling modern products and simply don't have the time or the knowledge to carefully evaluate vintage collections. This is where I am happy to help you! 

The collection was stored in a baseball card locker than you see in the first picture in the slide show below. How cool is this? The doors opened up to reveal slots for every team, and you could store your cards accordingly.  On the left door, at the bottom, the Seattle Pilots team name is listed, a team that lasted just ONE season (1969) in the MLB.

Steve had multiples of all of the stars and Hall of Famers. You can see three Reggie Jackson cards, two Roberto Clemente cards, a trio of Bob Gibson cards, and more!





After evaluating the collection and the free appraisal, I made a fair offer to Steve that he accepted. I then paid Steve how he wanted to be paid.  I wrote him a company check and then Steve even decided to leave me the storage locker tin! Vintage Breaks is always buying vintage cards, sets or packs! Look out for these star cards in bonuses on our live shows! Maybe we'll even give away this awesome locker tin.

When you choose to sell your collection to Vintage Breaks, I'll pay you how you want to be paid. Whether you'd prefer to be paid in cash, company check, or wire transfer, I'm ready to make a deal. If you're watching our card breaks now or have seen our retail store and wondered if we would be interested in purchasing your collection, reach out any time - my e-mail is


Vintage Breaks offers THE BEST VALUE IN BREAKING.

When you check out for a spot on the site, the price you see is the price you pay. Taxes and shipping are included! Your cards always come protected in holders. The last time you mailed a package out had to have set you back more than three bucks, right? If you buy a $3.00 spot, you get your card holdered and shipped for that price.

Lack of product in stores has been a problem; we see the same empty shelves that you do. If you can't find cards, Vintage Breaks is your solution.
