I am a big time baseball card collector. I have tons of them, and other sports cards too. I have basketball, hockey, football, and even some Nascar cards. Now I look at my baseball cards as investments. If you are not familar with the sports card industry. Then you probably aren’t aware of how many peope today are buying baseball cards for investments. It can be compared to school pictures for your kids, to give you an idea on what cards will be worth a lot of money, and which ones are not. Let’s take 2 students that are in the first grade. Now their 1st grade picture would be considered their rookie card in the sporting card world. If one student becomes a very successful lawyer and makes a lot of money one day. Then that student’s 1st grade picture or rookie card would be worth a lot of money. If the 2nd student, was to drop out of high school and work as a fast food worker. Then the 2nd student wouldn’t have a valuable 1st grade picture. The first student would have many school pictures that would be worth money. Their 5th grade picture, would be worth a little something. However, the further you go back and the older the picture is, would make it more valuable. Now if you manage to get a preschool picture of that student, then look out! It will be more valuable than the 1st grade picture.
So that’s an idea of how the baseball cards work in value. If a major league baseball player does well in his career. Then his rookie card will command some type of value. If you have seen Alex Rodriguez for the Yankees this year, then you would probably like to have 1 or 2 of his rookie cards. Also, if Barry Bonds breaks the all time home run record. Then his rookie cards, and all cards with him on it, will take a jump. Barry looks like he is going to be the new home run champ. So now is the time to look for a few of his baseball cards.Click here for reuse options!
