About Michael Osacky

Welcome to the official blog for Baseball in the Attic. I’m Michael Osacky and I buy and appraise pre-1975 baseball cards and sports memorabilia. I’ve been an avid collector since I was a teen. My grandfather gave me my first box of baseball cards which got me hooked on the idea of searching for cards and memorabilia from the past.

Since then I’ve traveled wherever needed to purchase individual cards, full collections, and other vintage sports items of value. I’m an official appraiser and have worked with several professional sports teams as well as some of the best athletes to ever play baseball.

Please take some time to go to our official website, to learn more about me, what we buy, see some photos, and to contact me if you’re selling or need an appraisal.
