Vintage Trading Card Auctions are based in Cheshire, United Kingdom. Being the UK's first specialist trading card auction company we strive to deliver 5* service to buyers and sellers alike. We understand how important and valuable trading cards can be and how exciting it is to find new ones to add to your collection. In our monthly online auctions we guarantee you will find something that takes your fancy.
We hope this page helps to answer all of the questions you may have - if not please use the contact page to get in touch.
We are running our timed auctions through www.easyliveauction.com
To bid you will need to make an account on the easy live website and then register to bid for our sales- you can find this by searching auctions or auctioneers.
Once you have registered for the sale you can simply find the lots you want to buy and place your maximum bid. Don't worry, this isn't necessarily the final purchase price as your bid will only increase as someone bids against you.
You can change, increase or remove your bid easily right up until the end of the auction.
We offer our own in house postage service at very affordable & competitive rates. We are able to ship quickly and safely worldwide.
