Tony Arnold Knows Old Baseball Cards



TonyeTrade founder and principal Tony Arnold lives and breathes baseball cards, sports collectibles, and other memorabilia such as vintage comic books. An eBay Power Seller since 1998, Tony has bought and sold some of the most valuable and sought-after collectibles in the hobby, with standout items including Superman first edition comic books and Babe Ruth rookie cards. In just 10 years, Tony has spent more than $25 million on purchasing vintage baseball cards and sports collectibles. Surprisingly, though, for Tony it isn’t just about money, he is an avid collector of pretty much anything worth collecting!

Some of the most exciting moments in my career haven’t necessarily come when I found extremely rare or valuable items. It’s when I finally locate that must-have item a client requested. It’s often not as valuable as it is a reminder of a special period in their lives. That’s when I realize how much I love this job. Many times I can bring something to an extremely wealthy client and they will have the same reaction as a child at Christmas getting a video game.
