Collecting Baseball Cards

This web page from My Baseball Card Space will highlight high end baseball cards and sports cards from the most valuable cards along with autographed memorabilia from all major sports.  Baseball cards have great cards starting with the most valuable baseball card in the world - the 1909 t206 Honus Wagner card followed by the 1952 Topps Mickey Mantle card.  Goudey baseball cards also contain such greats as Babe Ruth and Joe DiMaggio.  I believe that a sports card collection is not complete without football cards, basketball cards, hockey cards and other sports cards as necessary.  The Topps football cards contain famous ones such as a Jim Brown rookie card, Joe Namath, Terry Bradshaw, Joe Montana and Jerry Rice rookie cards along with rookies of Marcus Allen and Dan Marino.  If you follow any link on the sports cards here, it will lead you to more specific articles and product listings for those cards, which can provide helpful resources for you.  Bookmarking this page is a great idea.

This Cal Ripken Jr. rookie card from 1982 Topps Traded is his rarest one and is one of the most significant baseball cards of the 1980's regular mainstream cards by Topps, Donruss, Fleer and Upper Deck.  The good news is that it can be purchased for prices lower than book value right below this review of the cards as you can see the listings below.  Get a good deal.  Click here for 1982 Topps Traded baseball cards.

Listed on this page are (if you click the following link) signed baseballs from all of your favorite baseball hall of famers and current superstars from Willie Mays to Brooks Robinson, Alex Rodriguez, Derek Jeter and Albert Pujols. This site typically specializes in bringing you baseball cards and autographed memorabilia from sports card manufactured items, but on this page we overlap a bit with autographs that are just on major league baseballs.

Dan Marino rookie cards from 1984 topps are valuable investments to have in your football card collection.  He is one of the greatest rookie cards to have along with John Elway from this era.

When you want unopened wax packs from the 1950's, here is a great place to start looking.  1959 Topps Baseball packs are as affordable as you can get in the 1950's and that link just posted is good because when they are available on Ebay, that page will highlight them.  It takes patience because not everyone is selling them all of the time, so bookmarking this page and adding it to your favorites can help you in your search for these rare type of items.

Listed on this page are Bowman vintage cards from old baseball card and football cards collections.  These cards contain the vintage baseball cards such as 1951 Bowman baseball Mickey Mantle rookie cards and the 1951 Bowman Willie Mays rookie.  These are incredible cards and in the case of baseball cards, Bowman is similar in stature to the Topps cards of the 1950's as well as with the T206 vintage and Leaf and Goudey baseball cards as well.  What Topps and, specifically, Bowman have in addition to that is that there are football cards from the era as well.  Bowman even has one more additional sports - basketball, and the 1948 Bowman basketball cards have George Mikan rookies.  Wow!

1986 Topps football cards are highly sought after and valuable.  The set and wax boxes and packs contain Jerry Rice rookie cards, a Steve Young rookie, Reggie White and Bruce Smith rookies, Boomer Esiason, Andre Reed and Bernie Kosar first year cards as well.

A Topps Factory Set of complete baseball cards and sports cards is a great investment and has been around for many years.  It is great to have in your collection because it contains all of the cards in the set for that particular year.  Topps is the most famous baseball card company and has been making baseball cards since the 1952 series with Mickey Mantle.

A complete set of Topps factory sealed cards ensures that the cards will be in the best shape and you possibly could even have gem mint cards in there which would bring a premium to their book value.  Some of my favorites include football card sets from the 1980's as well, and baseball ones from that era in factory sealed condition are worth more than hand collated sets.

Do not forget about vintage cards as they are great for any collector.

In particular, 1952 Topps baseball cards contain the best Topps Mickey Mantle card in existence - the 1952 Topps high number card.

There are some of the Topps sets for baseball cards that I consider noteworthy.  I really do like them all though, as they appeal to different kinds of collectors, different budgets and, in the long run, have all proven to be worth keeping around.

Star Company basketball sets produced in the 1980's are very difficult to find and contain some of the most expensive and valuable cards in basketball history.  Authentication and counterfeits are a concern though predominantly because the Michael Jordan rookie card in the regular 1984-85 Star Company set is worth a lot of money even in ungraded condition (significantly more than his 1986-87 Fleer rookie card).
