FAQ About Sports Card Values
Collecting sports cards has been a fun hobby for many years, with some cards becoming incredibly valuable over time. If you’re new to the hobby or interested in learning more about sports card values, here are some frequently asked questions (and answers) for you.
Q: What makes a sports card valuable?
Several factors determine the sports card value including its rarity, condition, age, and popularity of the player featured on the card. In general, they are more valuable if the card is in good condition, feature in-demand players, and are from a limited release (ie. rare parallels, autographs.)
Q: How can I determine the value of my sports cards?
Several resources are available for determining the value of sports cards, including online price guides, and auction results (ie. on eBay sold listings). You can also use popular online tools now available as we suggest in this post.
Q: How should I store my sports cards to maintain their value?
It’s important to store your sports cards in a way that protects them from damage and deterioration. You can use acid-free sleeves and top loaders, keeping them in a cool, dry place, and avoiding exposure to direct sunlight or moisture.
Q: Are newer sports cards as valuable as older ones?
A: In general, older cards tend to be more valuable due to their rarity and historical significance (think vintage sports cards beyond the junk wax era). However, there are exceptions, such as cards featuring popular current players or limited-edition releases or low population of high-graded cards.
Q: Should I get my sports cards graded?
Getting your sports cards graded by a professional grading service can increase their value, especially if it is in great condition. But it’s important to weigh the cost of grading against the potential increase in value, as not all cards will see a significant increase in value after being graded (ie. PSA 10 vs PSA 9).
