Sports Trading Cards

There are many manufacturers and brands of sports trading cards. The most famous is The Topps Company Inc. which has created some of the first and most historic cards ever produced.

What is the value of a Mickey Mantle autographed baseball?

User Avatar
A Mickey Mantle single signed baseball is worth about $400-$600. The price will vary based on condition, and type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Rare examples of a pristine signature or inscriptions like "The Mick" "HOF 1974" or 536 HR's" could raise the price to approximately $1,000. Personal inscriptions like "Good luck Mike" could sell for less than $400. A rarely signed full-name signature "Mickey Charles Mantle" will break the $2,000 price mark as it did in a May 5, 2007, live eBay auction, when it sold for $2,390. Along with condition, the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature will dictate the price. Mickey Mantle was under contract with the Upper-Deck company before he passed away. Baseballs that have the Upper-Deck hologram could sell in the $1,000-$1,500 price range. And signatures that have not been authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. In about a dozen recent auctions (June-August 2009) a Mickey Mantle-signed baseball sold for a high of $597.50. The average selling price was about $475. One baseball (inscribed "No. 7") sold for $836.50. And in an April 2009 auction, a Mickey Mantle-signed baseball (inscribed "MVP '56 '57 '62") sold for $1,792.50! In addition, a rare Mickey Charles Mantle- signed baseball sold for $1,314.50. So it's worth up to over $1000.

Are crackerjack baseball cards worth anything?

User Avatar
If they are the originals produce in 1914 and 1915 then some of them are worth good money. If they are the reprints or forgeries then they are not worth a whole lot of money.... also i want to point out that alot of the cards from the 1914 or 1915 crackerjack baseball card series will be worth money but if they are in really great condition they could be worth even thousands of dollars even if its a not so known player but if you have any of the hall of fame players such as honus wagner, ty cobb, walter johnson, tristram speaker,napoleon lajoie, etc etc etc these players could be worth thousands of dollars in low grades these cards are highly collectible and any serious baseball fan collector or investor would love to own them

Rookie baseball card signed by ken griffey jr?

User Avatar
Ken Griffey Jr. signed baseball card A 1989 Ken Griffey Jr. rookie signed baseball card is worth on average $30.-$40. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. A Ken Griffey Jr rookie card could have a higher value without the signature. Collectible items could add value to the price of a signature but not always. As in the case of a baseball card, generally collectors of baseball cards would rather have a baseball card without the signature. The signature would be considered as a flaw in the condition of the card and will lower the value. A collector of signatures will not always pay extra for the "collectible" baseball card. The autograph collectors main concern is displaying the signature. This is why it is not a good idea to have an expensive baseball card signed. You could devalue the price of the card, and get less for it.

Go to the Antique Road Show and they will tell you. Also, go to Ebay and see what they are selling for. Once you come to the page with old/vintage valentines cards, click the "Completed Items" link on the left side of the page. It will tell you which ones sold recently and what they sold for.

How much money could you sell your Evan Longoria signed baseball card for?

User Avatar
Evan Longoria signed baseball card An Evan Longoria signed baseball card is worth about $20.-$30. Value is based on average prices of recently closed auctions. Prices may vary based on condition, and the type of authenticity that accompanies the signature. Signatures that have not been properly authenticated could sell at half the market value or less. It doesn't matter which card was signed. In general, collectors of baseball cards would rather have a baseball card without the signature. The signature would be considered as a flaw in the condition of the card and will lower the value. If the signature has a lower value than the card it will lower the value of the card. The un-signed card will have a higher value.

What is the value of an old baseball card?

User Avatar
Price Guides In the case of the card collection you can try looking them up at beckett.com. That should give you a fair idea of their worth. Look in the Baseball price guide Beckett it is a a monthly magazine that you can buy at a magazine viver A more reliable method is to search for past sales transactions that took place on eBay and major auction houses. VintageCardPrices.com does just this for old baseball cards that range from the late 1800's to 1989. It also depends on the player, possibly the team and the year. If it is a rookie card of a player that changed baseball it will be worth more. eBay Search completed eBay auctions. Its free and way more accurate then anything you will find in Beckett.

Probably around the five hundreds cause it depends on how many were made, and if it is real or not. If it is extremely rare and it is 100% real. If it has these qualities plus it of course must be in good conditions it would be in the thousands most likely.

What is baseball card flipping?

User Avatar
flipping for baseball cards can be enjoyed in many versions@ while holding the card usually your fingers on top and the thumb on the bottom of the card a simple game is heads a winner tails a loser if a tie then the cards stay in the pot until there's a winner another way is you flip your card and if it lands tails the other flipper tries to flip his card on the downed card but it has to land on it with the matching tails if he mises the card then either of the two become fair game and the pot keeps growing until a card is flipped onto one on the floor and it matches however if a card lands on another and they don't match such as a tail on a heads or vice versa that pile3 is considered dead and the flipper has to find a lone card on the floor for a target. if there aren't any available then whoever's turn it is has to flip his card{usually you try to flip the card as far as you can] out so the next player can try hitting it. using these examples the games can be extended by adding the number of wins in order to win the pot on the floor or playing for a stack of cards each player risking about the same amount. i'd like to get some adults interested in this for competition all that bending down is good exercise plus why should just the kids have all the fun and believe me it is a lot of fun

What is the value of a Shaquille O'Neal rookie card?

User Avatar
That depends on the specific card and its condition. If the card has a clean surface, good centering, sharp corners and smooth edges then it will be worth more than if it has a problem in one of these areas. According to the Basketball Beckett value guide, Shaq's rookie cards range in value from just a few dollars up to about $80. There are card grading companies, such as BGS and PSA, who will grade your card on a scale of 1 to 10, 1 being poor and 10 being mint/pristine. Without going into too much detail, graded cards can me worth MUCH more than their non-graded counterparts. For example, the 1992-93 Upper Deck #1 Shaq rookie card has a high book value of $40, but I just saw one graded 10 by PSA go for over $250 on Ebay. Had it been a BGS 10 it would have went for much more than that. If you just have a couple cards and you'd like to know how much they're worth you could stop in a local card shop and the owner would probably look up the values for you. If you have quite a few, you could stop at a card shop or Walmart and pick up a Basketball Beckett for about $8 or $9. Good luck!
