People from all walks of life collect sports cards and non-sports cards for fun and profit. This report is divided into parts will show you how to go about it for fun and earn yourself a little extra spending money.
Sports cards are one of the most traded and treasured hobbies out their. Your favorite player can usually be found on a sport card depending on what sport he or she plays. Let’s take a look at some of the basics so we know what to do.
The most important thing of a sport card is the condition it is in. Condition is king as they say and never is it more evident than in sports cards. A average card might only sell for 100.00 dollars where that same card that is in mint condition and graded could get you 5-10,000 dollars. Now that’s a big difference in any one’s pocketbook.
Besides condition you want to protect your cards as you would any investment and that means proper storage and protection. There are many products out their but for what we need a air tight holder is best. Some of these are snap together holders, but I’m partial to the screw down holders. Either one works good. Remember light and air can hurt your cards and also heat.
The last part of this report is know what you have. Study guide books for prices and know your hobby. One great site is www.beckett.com they are a good source to try. In our next installment we will look into what to collect and how to pick those winners and stay away from those losers in the card market.
