The PROFESSIONAL Method to Collect Sports Cards,

Collecting sports cards can be a fun and potentially profitable hobby. Start building your collection by keeping your eyes peeled for desirable cards at places like hobby shops online stores and trade shows. As you continue amassing cards use plastic sleeves to protect them from dust dirt and damage and keep them organized in a multi page card binder until youre ready to show them off or put them up for sale or trade. Decide what type of cards you want to collect. Collectible cards exist for just about every sport imaginable from football to hockey to pro wrestling. It can take decades to track down all the cards in a particular set so narrowing the scope of your collection to one or two sports will help you focus your search.

Search hobby shops forof new cards. Stores that sell comic books toys and board games also tend to carry sports cards. These places tend to mostly stock newer editions which come randomized in sealed packs.

Look for vintage cards at pawn shops flea markets and garage sales. Anywhere people go to sell off of their unused belongings you have a good chance of stumbling upon a stack of old sports cards. In fact its not uncommon for rare and valuable cards to turn up in a jumble of assorted goods often being sold for far less than theyre actually worth.

Purchase cards online. These days there are many stores on the internet that specialize in new and antique trading cards. Check out the Sports section of a few of these websites to peruse their selection. Dont forget to check sites like Ebay Etsy and COMC as well.

Attend trade shows in your area. Keep an eye out for sponsored conventions and less formal gatherings aimed at sports cards collectors. These gatherings can be a great place to hunt for cards that have long eluded you. Rare and valuable cards in particular tend to turn up at trade shows more often than anywhere else.
