Gold Card Auctions is a Leader in Sports Card Investing

GoldCardAuctions is a high-end investment-caliber trading card company and is the definitive source of news and analysis for sports card investing.
We purchase sports cards as an alternative investment to stocks, bonds, and real estate.
We strive to provide simple, straightforward advice that is objective, independent, and honest advice, helping you get the most for your money in the sports card investment world.


Provide information, resources, and insight trading/sports card investors need to maximize profits.


We value honesty, simplicity, and integrity. Simple, honest, and easy to understand is a winning combination.


Sportscard investing should only make up a tiny portion of your overall investment strategy.
For example, if you make enough to invest $100,000 annually, 80 to 90% of that should be in ETFs, stocks, or mutual funds (consult a financial advisor to determine which is best for you).  The remaining amount can be used in alternative investments such as art, books, video games, and our favorite HIGH-END INVESTMENT GRADE SPORTS CARDS.
