Frequently asked question

It depends on why you’re collecting.

If you’re looking to complete sets and have a full collection for a particular team or season, base card collecting is essential. Thankfully, you shouldn’t expect to pay high prices for base cards as they’re extremely common.

This ease of access also means base cards aren’t ideal for investors. Even a base card with a superb grade isn’t likely to sell for more than a few hundred dollars.

If you’re hoping to make money from your football cards, it’s better to focus on autograph cards, variations on base cards, and rookie cards. Any cards that feature swatches and memorabilia will also fetch higher prices in the collector’s market.

Two key factors determine the value of a football card:

Demand
Condition

Several things affect the demand for a card, including the card’s age and the number of the specific card that were printed. The player featured on the card also plays a huge role. Collectors tend to focus on cards featuring high-profile players. A card’s overall rarity is important too, as rare cards offer low supply, making it more difficult for them to meet demand.

Condition can make the difference between a card being worth a few dollars or several thousand dollars. Some organizations, such as the PSA, grade cards based on their condition. The closer a card comes to the Gem Mint 10 rating, which means the card is almost perfect, the more it will be worth.

You have a lot of options when selling your football cards. Online forums and auction sites, such as eBay, may help you to make quick sales. But you may not get the full value of your card, depending on how the bidding process goes.

It’s often better to take the selling process slowly. Have your card graded and evaluated by professionals, such as those at Bleecker Trading. It also helps to build a network of fellow collectors and investors because they may be able to point you to buyers who really want your card. An incentivized buyer will tend to offer more than somebody buying online, especially because they get to see the card in person before handing over their money.
