About Us

Click to enlargeFor over 32 years, Cardboard Gold has been one of the leading manufacturers of collectible holders. We have sold more than $80 million in hobby supplies and processed over 350,000 orders. We are a two time, Inc. 500 company having been honored in both 1991 (#208) and 1992 (#74) as one of America's Fastest Growing Private Companies. We are family owned and operated by the original founder, Jack Mayes. Our entire family is now involved in all aspects of our company.

What started as a part time mail order sports card business, run out of a dorm room at the University of California, Irvine has transformed into a multi faceted brand of collectible protection and storage. We are loyal and quality conscious - we still use many of the same factories that we did in the 1980's. Even more important to us is our loyal customers. We still have many of the same customers that we had in the 80's and 90's.

We offer the same guarantee to every single loyal Cardboard Gold customer that we have over the past 30 years: VALUE. Real value is superior quality at an excellent price!

We specialize in supplying dealers with the finest collectible supplies for sports cards, gaming cards, photos, lithographs, posters, magazines, comic books, postcards, tickets, currency, and records/music. Our quantity discount prices are comparable to other brands master distributor prices. And NO ONE beats our consistent quality!

We will not be undersold! If you find a comparable product at a lower price, please email us at We will beat the price! (Remember, that our prices include free freight via Fed Ex ground right to your door!)
