Over the pandemic, like many others I re-discovered boxes of old baseball cards that I thought for sure would be worth a fortune. Full disclosure I sold all my cards as a teenager to buy my first car, (a sweet 84 Honda Accord hatchback!), but, I did keep all my Sixers, Flyers, Phillies and Eagles cards, since, in my day… rarely was the big money card from one of our local teams. So, l loaded up my binders to head to Haddonfield and meet my new friends at Collx.
CollX is a mobile app co-developed by Ted Mann and his son Charlie. The app uses vision recognition software to value your old sports cards, Pokémon cards, and more. Even better, the app is an online community that lets you buy, sell, trade and admire cards and collections of others. It’s got close to a million users that have scanned over 150 million cards.
It’s a father son team which made it even more enjoyable for me. Young Charlie likes the new cards more than the old cards, but he did have an appreciation for my Phillies binder that I brought along. He also was somewhat sympathetic that my Phillies heroes did not bring in the big value that I thought they would when I was his age…
The app is totally free to download and it’s free to use. Scan some of your cards and if you find any gold, please let me know!
