How To Buy Baseball Cards — 10 Comments

  1. Gosh this brings back memories. I haven’t collected cards since I was a kid. Funny how you mention Topps. That was also the very first pack I ever received. I don’t know why I’m thinking back to my obsession with the hard stick of gum that comes with each pack lol. There’s some really interesting info in this article I never even considered. But when I was a kid, I really didn’t know what I was doing and didn’t value this kind of thing the same.

    • Hey Paul.I remember that piece of gum! That was a great promotional idea that you just don’t see anymore. That was the best gum, not sure why they stopped doing that. I had no idea back then about the value of those cards either, I hate to think how many cards I ruined! Thanks for dropping by. ~Jeremy

  2. I’ve always was curious about card collecting, your info has answered a few lingering questions.

    Thanks for posting and best wishes.

    • You are most welcome Ty. I’m glad the article was able to help you with some questions. Stop by anytime. Best wishes to you as well. ~Jeremy

  3. Jeremy,
    As a casual card collector, I find a lot of useful information in your article. Have a Barry Bonds rookie card. My first year for collecting was 1962. My younger brothers tore up or lost all of those cards. Will be coming back to this site to see what other information you have.

    • Hi John. I can’t even remember how many cards I lost or ruined when I was a kid. I just wish I had them all now! Thanks for stopping by John, and if you ever want to part with that Bonds rookie card, look me up. ~Jeremy

  4. I love this idea! It is often hard to find someone knowledgeable about old vintage items. I think this is a great niche. Very good job and being informative with your content. Keep it up! 🙂

    • Thank you April! If you ever need a hand with pricing, or would like some more information on an item that you have, just stop by and let me know, I’m always happy to help. Thanks for dropping by. ~Jeremy

  5. Another great article!

    Funny story (well not really lol):

    Around the time of the Barry Bonds scandal, (actually the morning after if i recall correctly) I had my notebook full of baseball cards next to my bed upright. I also had a glass of Minute Maid’s “Berry Punch” sitting on the night stand. You could imagine what happens next.

    I wake up, accidentally knock over my “Berry Punch”, which conveniently spills all over the cards, there by “juicing them” and forever tainting the game of baseball.

    To this day they still make a slight “sticking” sound when you flip the pages. Not all of them are ruined, but it was almost like a prophecy or something. Baseball will never be the same.


    • Stu!! This has to be one of the greatest baseball card tragedies I’ve ever heard! Sorry about your cards man, but I just can’t stop laughing. I hope you don’t mind, but I will be sharing the “Berry incident” to everyone I know. Thanks for stopping by and sharing Stu, and stop by anytime and talk some baseball! ~Jeremy
