Collectibles with Causes charity accepts Collectible Trading Cards of all kinds as a charity donation. The tax deduction benefits easily outweigh having to sell the gaming, non-sports and sports trading cards yourself, and all of the proceeds benefit families in need across the United States. Donate Baseball Cards, Basketball Cards, Football Cards, Soccer Cards, Hockey Cards, Racing Cards, Wrestling Cards, Pokemon Cards, UFC Cards, Non-sports Cards and Autographed Memorabilia and receive a current market value tax deduction from any state in America! We have years of experience and knowledge when it comes to the gaming and sports card market, players and trends and guarantee the highest allowed tax deduction allowed by the IRS.
Donating Sports collectibles is a great way to benefit yourself and those in need at the same time. For casual collectors that decided to buy a hangar box while shopping at Walmart recently and got lucky and pulled a 1 of 1 Lamelo Ball, Anthony Edwards, Mac Jones or Joe Burrow, the decision to sell or hold must be on your mind. Rather than waste time and money getting your new found treasure graded at PSA for $150+ and giving feebay their cut of 15%, why not consider donating to our charity and at the same time reduce your tax bill substantially!
Maybe you are a long time collector that is thinking about selling some or all of your trading cards collection of PSA, BGS, SGC, HGA or other grading companies graded slabs. Or maybe you are into online sports card breaks and in 2018 hit a few monster Luka rookies and a Shohei Ohtani autographed card that are going for around $70,000 each now. Another situation we hear alot is that a family member that used to collect either passed away or lost their interest and gave their entire collection to their son, daughter or grandkids. They have no interest in the hobby and would rather just sell the cards for quick cash at their local card shop for pennies on the dollar, giving up potentially thousands of dollars that could have gone in their pockets and helped those in need at the same time.
We have hundreds of sports card collectors that regularly donate every year with us and end up receiving all the money they paid in taxes from their day job as a tax refund in April. Some are even able to claim this deduction for up to 3 years in the future for high end cards they gererously donated to our charity. We arent saying this is the case for everyone that wants to donate sports and gaming cards to us, in fact we unfortunately have to be the bearer of bad news sometimes and actually decline accepting their donation. Why you ask?
The Junk Wax Era! Collecting sports cards was very popular if you were a kid from about 1986 through 1992. Because there were so many collectors, the sports card manufacturers like Topps, Fleer, Donruss and Upper Deck mass produced these cards and their product was literally everywhere! Unfortunately, collecting football, hockey and baseball cards from the 1980s and early 1990s is now done so solely for fun. The sad truth is that the vast majority of cards produced during the junk wax era will never be worth anything.
Take the 1992 Donruss Elite Baseball cards for example. Donruss manufactured 112,500 cases multiplied by 10,080 cards per case for a grand total of 1.13 billion 1992 Donruss cards (and that doesn’t include jumbo packs, rack packs or factory sets)!
If you still dont believe us, go grab some of the cards you've been storing for 30+ years that you think have "value" and visit 130point and do a quick search for recent sales. There of course are a handful of diamonds in the rough that are still sought after. For example, the 1989 Topps Traded Barry Sanders rookie only sells for $15, but the PSA 10 sells for around $200. Another example is the 1992 Topps Shaq rookie, which sells for about $20 raw and around $700 as a PSA 10. So not all hope is lost but 99% have the same value as kindling now. For that reason we have to sometimes decline accepting these huge card lots and generous donors usually get quite angry with us.
Donating Sports cards, garbage pail kids, Pokemon cards, non-sports, gaming boxes, cases or hangars of collector cards is a great way to benefit yourself and those in need at the same time. Just complete the following form to begin the donation process or call us toll free 888-228-7320
