IDENTIFYING SPORTS MEMORABILIA
Generally speaking, sports memorabilia has greater value if it’s considered vintage, or associated with a famous player or event, or a combination of these factors. Player autographs, if authentic, can also increase the value of an otherwise run-of-the mill item. While the list of sports memorabilia is extensive, these are some of the more common items you’ll see at sports memorabilia auctions:
Programs, tickets, etc.
CHECKING SPORTS MEMORABILIA AUCTIONS FOR RECENT SALES
With the broad range of memorabilia on the market today, it can be difficult to pinpoint pricing information. However, sports memorabilia auctions such as those you see on eBay can provide a good baseline for an item’s value. Becking eBay for market activity is a fairly simple process:
Go to ebay.com.
In the Search for anything field, enter a description of your item (i.e. Mickey Mantle rookie card), and then hit Enter.
Make sure your item appears in the search results.
A BETTER ALTERNATIVE TO SPORTS MEMORABILIA AUCTIONS
Sports memorabilia auctions often aren’t the best outlet for the sale of your items. Auction houses typically charge a significant fee, and the auction process itself can be quite lengthy. However, if you’re interested in getting cash up front for your sports memorabilia in a hassle-free transaction, please contact TonyeTrade.
