I am an independent app developer and I made this app because I couldn’t find a good app on the App Store to catalog my baseball collection. I have worked really hard to provide an app that is both powerful and aesthetically pleasing. The scanner and automatic information detection make Cardstock the easiest way to digitize your collection, the value lookup is the quickest and most accurate way to estimate the true value of your cards, and the ability to share beautiful images of your cards is unrivaled.

Good start

Tried it out on a couple of cards & the scanner seems to be decent. Recognized most of the card info accurately with just a few manual additions & corrections required.

Nice that the collection option has multiple ways to sort & organize.

The only thing that’s preventing me from upgrading is having to manually select the value look up & that it relies on Mavin. Would prefer the value data to always be displayed next to the card in the collection & have to a cumulative collection value to justify paying to upgrade.

I'm glad to hear you are enjoying most of the app's features. We currently have some features in the works that will allow you track your cards' values in a way very similar to the one you described, so check back soon to see those added to the app!

Great App for Card Collecting & Monitoring Value!

This is a great app, and I plan on using it a lot in near future. Only problem I have is it crashes a lot. It’ll either crash after both card photos are taken, or sometimes after just one of the photos is taken.

There have also been times where I accidentally swipe up or down, and it won’t save the progress I’ve made of uploading new cards. Not sure if it’s a hassle to add auto-save feature after uploading one side of card, card information, etc.? No worries if it is. Great idea for app overall though! Any chance to integrate card values from Beckett in the future?

I'm glad to hear you like the app! In regards to the crashes, I have put out an update that greatly improves the app's stability and should stop the app from crashing.

The autosave feature is a pretty great idea that I will certainly keep mind for future updates. At this time, I don't have any plans to integrate with Beckett because they don't provide an api to allow me to access their card values directly, but I will look into possibly allowing the option to choose between card mavin or Beckett for the card value lookup screen.



I was really hoping to like this app. I have a fairly extensive collection and would love to catalog with pictures. First I misinterpreted the claim that the app could “recognize “ and find card information based upon the picture. I thought that was a stretch for an inexpensive app. Second there is no instruction. I have spent well over a half an hour just to figure out how to log one card. I must have just gotten lucky, as I am still trying to figure out how to add a second one. For someone who would like to log thousands of cards, it is just not worth the frustration. Maybe some sort of help in explaining how to use the app efficiently and would like it.

Thank you for bringing this to my attention. I will look to add a tutorial to help new users in the near future. I’d imagine the part you are having difficulty with is taking the scans of the card. To add a scan of the card, you hit the “Add Front Image” button. Then, after lining up the card, you click the white circle to snap a picture of the card. You then have the option to adjust the corners to produce a cleaner final image. When you finish adjusting, you click “Keep Scan” and then “Save” to add the scan to the card. Then you repeat the same process for the back side. I hope this helps to clear up your confusion. Also, the app is able to recognize information from a large number of cards, but it is not able to identify information from every card. If you have any other questions, feel free to email us at
