We Buy and Sell Vintage Treasures


Looking for hard-to-find collectibles and comic books or need help with bringing your own collection to market? We’re your trusted source for unique and eye-popping wares!

Back to the Past Collectibles StaffWe’ve been in the business of vintage memorabilia for over 30 years, serving a growing community of enthusiastic fans locally in Southeast Michigan, but through the magic of online sales we are bringing these gems to you world-wide.

Offering a superior customer service experience for comic books, as well as a dizzying array of movie & TV items, coins, vinyl records, action figures and statues (and lots more), we love anything old and dusty and we seek out the strange and bizarre wherever it may be found.

Visit us in person at our Wixom, Michigan HQ or follow our events and shop online

We’ll pay top dollar for your dusty treasures and we’re always buying!


From a single matchbox to bringing full estates and businesses to market, we’re up to the task. We’ve trekked through storage units, attics, basements, stairwells, and cul-de-sacs to uncover hidden treasures from days gone by.

Do you have a pile of old boxes in the back of a closet that would be better converted to cash? 

Bring in your memorabilia and we’ll help determine its value and the best way to get it in front of the right buyers, right over the  counter. For larger collections, we can travel to you.

Collectibles sellers often shop around with their collections, looking for top dollar offers. Back to the Past Collectibles has a track record of  being the last place people stop, because they find the best options here!

With so many options from consignment to outright purchase or trade-in for store credit, we’re sure to find the right solution for your situation.


We’ll find top dollar for your treasured collection and we’re always buying!

Back to the Past Collectibles is always on the hunt for quality vintage items of all sorts, from vinyl records to statues, from comic books to rock posters, as well as coins, advertising pieces, movie materials and lots more! Let us help you find the right market to convert that collection into the best return.

Our multiple channels always find the best outcome – whether it be via live auction events, online sales, private buyers or in our own showroom and gallery, we’ll guide you to the right destination for your goods.

You’ll also get the reward of knowing your beloved treasures will find a comfortable new home with a fellow collector.

Back to the Past Collectibles is no ordinary comics and collectibles store.

Forget what you know about the usual comics and toys retail experience! Our brick & mortar location in Wixom, Michigan handles tens of thousands of items, with a rotating stock that changes every week. We are literally a collectibles warehouse, full of amazing vintage finds, and we bring it all to you via our online sales channels and auction events, not to mention our local gallery offerings.

Bring your items to sell, consign or trade and see what’s percolating in our warehouse. We’re always hard at work on sorting & cataloging the next collection and we love giving tours! Much like watching the fudge get made when you’re on Mackinac Island, you’ll be amazed and delighted when you see what we’re handling next!


Back to the Past Collectibles handles some of the most unique finds in the industry, some with jaw-dropping realized prices!

Our customers love us for the work we do, both finding these rare treasures and getting them properly packed and arriving world-wide safely! That’s why our ratings are among the best in the industry: Proxibid 4.8+ rating over thousands of transactions, eBay 100% rating over 40,000+ transactions, and on local review sites we consistently earn high marks.

Our selling clients love us for the prices we get when bringing their valuables to market. Our experts are always standing by to discover the gems buried in your collection. We’ve been successful for more than 3 decades because we focus on making your collectible sale a hit, and when you win, we win!


There’s nothing better for us to receive than the good word of a happy client or customer. We’re in search for the win/win and a letter of testimony puts us on cloud 9! Here’s a few examples:


Back to the Past Collectibles is the premier auction house for vintage collectibles and memorabilia of all kinds!

We offer treasures from both our own warehouse and other consignors from across the country.

Main event auctions are held in our physical showroom (COVID-safety permitting) and are broadcast online via Proxibid.com, so you can attend whether or not you’re from our local neighborhood. Most auction events have a 1-hour inspection and registration window, so you can take your time looking over the lots.

The buzz you’ve heard is real. It’s a lot of fun to attend our onsite live events, so we invite you to come and check it out!

If you’re unable to join us in person on auction day, we highly recommend using Proxibid to place absentee bids and attend online.
