Historic Dodgers Collectibles—Forever Popular
The Dodgers are a historic baseball franchise whose origins extend back to 1883. Originally, the team was located in Brooklyn, New York. However, in 1958, owner Walter O’Malley made a business decision to move the franchise across the country to Los Angeles. The City of Angels instantly took the team and its collectibles, and they set a franchise record for attendance in their first year.
Collecting High-Valued Baseball Cards
While prices for the basic living necessities keep rising faster, the market for high end baseball cards seem to be growing more and more. Unlike when times were tough back in the early 1980’s when high end sports cards prices were at their lowest, this time around the baseball card market is just the opposite.
Then and Now
Help me Please, with these Baseball cards
Hi, Ya’ll. I recently inherited alot of baseball cards from the early 1900’s. I have no clue what to do with them. I know that their value was meant to fund an education and I figured that I could trust collectors to tell me how to proceed with them and not get taken advantage of by a store or something. The cards are in album books and there is like 5-7 of each card in each slot.
Olympics Baseball Collectibles Win Gold
The USA baseball team may have taken the bronze in Beijing, but you win gold with Olympic baseball collectibles. Although it has waned in popularity over the years, Olympic baseball has provided a showcase for some of the best young stars in the sport, which increases the desirability of their card collectibles.
