Frequently Asked Questions

How do you determine the price of your cards?

At Skybox Collectibles, we take pride in the fact that we offer some of the most competitive pricing on our sports card boxes and trading card games. We determine the price of our cards based on the prices we pay, as well as the going market rate for them. You might find that our prices will change over time, so we invite you to take a look at our website or visit our Norwalk, CT store regularly to see how much our cards are going for at any given time.

Which cards should I buy if I’m on a budget?

If you’re on a budget, you might not think you’ll be able to afford to buy sports cards and trading cards, but Skybox Collectibles has something that will fit into almost everyone’s preferred price range! While some of our sealed boxes of cards will sell for hundreds of dollars, there are also plenty of options that sell for less than $50. We welcome you to shop around at our trading card store to see what some of these options have to offer. They’re ideal for those on budgets, as well as those who are just getting into card collecting.

Do you purchase cards from your customers?

Yes! We do buy card singles and graded cards from our customers. We base our pricing on competitive market listings and sales to make things as fair as we can. We proudly offer a buy-back program that pays competitive market rates with a 50% cash payout or 60% of the value in store credit (available in-store for now).

We generally only agree to purchase cards that are valued at over $5. If you have older cards, specifically those from the 1980s and 1990s, we ask that you please separate the best players/cards that you’re interested in selling before bringing them to us.

Which types of graded cards do you buy?

We specialize in buying cards that have been graded by PSA, CGC, BGS, CSG, SGC, DSG, HGA, and more. You may want to explore the idea of having your cards graded before asking us to purchase them to speed up the process. You should also make sure you have the right hobby supplies on hand to protect your graded cards.

Do you buy sealed boxes and packs?

Yes, we do purchase both sealed boxes, packs of sports cards, and other trading cards. Our interest in these items and the prices we are willing to pay for them will be based on their condition, their market value, and the current demand that exists for them.

Do you buy memorabilia?

While this may change in the future, we do not currently purchase memorabilia from our customers. We do offer some memorabilia, such as autographed jerseys, to our customers, but we are not interested in purchasing it at this time.

Do you buy comic books and toys?

Although we truly appreciate comic books, toys, and similar collectibles, we do not purchase them from our customers as of right now.

Which payment methods do you accept?

We accept cash, check, credit, and debit cards—including American Express, Visa, Mastercard, and more—Apple Pay, and Skybox gift cards.

Do you provide wholesale pricing?

Yes! We do provide the chance for our customers to obtain wholesale pricing on certain products they would like to buy in larger quantities. You can find an application that outlines our Wholesale Trading Card Pricing & Opportunities here.

Do you ship internationally?

We can ship some products, such as sports cards, internationally. We are, however, limited to only shipping domestically when it comes to certain products like Pokemon collectibles and Magic: The Gathering cards.
