What is my sports memorabilia worth?
FIND OUT MORE ABOUT YOUR SPORTS MEMORABILIA
We’ve all heard the familiar story of a boy using his dad’s autographed baseball to play with his neighborhood friends and getting grounded as a result. But are those autographed baseballs really worth the big bucks? There are many manufactured collector items and replicas saturating the sports memorabilia market. So how can you know what your items are really worth? We’re here to help. Our Savvy Specialists can take a few pieces of information about your sports memorabilia and get you an appraisal quickly.
RARITY AND ATHLETE FAME INFLUENCE VALUE OF SPORTS MEMORABILIA
There are multiple factors that influence the valuation of sports memorabilia. Vintage items connected to a hall of fame athlete are more valuable, increasingly so depending on the historical significance and the rarity. Some modern items are valuable, even if not vintage, based on the type. For example, some game-worn jerseys and game-used balls are valuable based on collector demand, even in not vintage.
MAXIMIZING THE VALUE OF MY SPORTS MEMORABILIA
The best thing you can do to maximize value of your sports memorabilia is to keep it in pristine condition. Display cases, especially ones that are UV protected, are ideal for this. Additionally, protective sleeves, frames, and cases are all potential solutions for maintaining the quality and value of your sports memorabilia. And overall, you’ll want to avoid damage that could be caused by light, smoke, food, water, and any other hazardous items.
