Determining Best Value Baseball Cards
Do baseball cards representing ‘great players' like Ted Williams, Shoeless Joe Jackson, Babe Ruth or Pete Rose offer great value to collectors and investors? Experts differ, but one economic saw remains true which is that markets determine price and value. Look at what happens in the baseball card and memorabilia market and judge for yourself.
- Baseball Card Values And Sports Scandals. The 1919 Chicago White Sox ‘threw' the World Series, however despite that 80 year infamy baseball cards representing key players such as Shoeless Joe Jackson have radically appreciated to over $2,500. In the modern era, baseball hit king, Pete Rose, rocked the baseball world with news that he regularly gambled on game outcomes when acting as manager of the Reds. Yet, Pete Rose 1963 rookie season baseball cards leapt in value from an issue trading value of $5.00 to over $630.
- Baseball Card Values Versus Supply. Supply side economist always have the answer when determining the market fluctuations. And so it goes with baseball cards for sale. Two of baseball's only .400 hitters, Ted Williams and Shoeless Joe Jackson have about the same number of collectible baseball cards in circulation, yet Ted Williams' rookie baseball cards trade at around $1500 whereas Shoeless Joe Jackson baseball trading cards trade at nearly $2600. Modern era players, such as hitter and home run king, Barry Bonds, allegedly over saturate markets with now excess supply of Barry Bond baseball cards and memorabilia, with the result that pricing remains low and demand flat.
- Baseball Caps. Home run hitter, Barry Bonds, like other modern and past great players ‘milks' all the value out of the baseball memorabilia market that he can, using advanced marketing and online web site sales. Some collectors reputedly pay as much as $800 for an autographed baseball cap.
- Baseball Jerseys And Other Baseball Gear. Famous players might get as much as $15,000 for an entire baseball uniform, or $5000 plus for a baseball jersey worn by a great name such as Lou Gehrig or Joe Dimaggio. Meanwhile, legendary Willie Mays autographs baseball bat cases which sell for $4000 or more.
- Game And Event Baseballs. No longer is catching a foul ball or scrambling for a home run ball in the center field bleachers a simple matter of catch-and-hold. Instead, millionaires have entered the baseball memorabilia market in a big way, offering up hundreds of thousands of dollars for special home run baseballs struck by Sammy Sosa and Mark McGuire when both players eclipsed Babe Ruth's single season home run record.
