How to Evaluate your Sports Cards

There are many sports card buyers nj available out there, but before you actually sell you can follow this step-by-step guide to value your card.

As a first step, determine which card you would like to evaluate. Have a look at your collection, and pick the card that you would feel most comfortable to sell. As a next step, determine the manufacturer of the card.Β  You will find the card manufacturer on the back of your card. For example, if you see there the initials T.C.G – it means that your card was manufactured by the Topps Chewing Gum Company. You could also see there Fleer, Bowman, or other manufacturer. Now, you are one step closer to finding out the value of your card before selling to sports card buyers nj.

Next, you need to find out what year the card was manufacturer. The print year of the card is generally the year after the last year of recorded stats that you can find in the back of your card. Your card may also display a card number, and this could also become helpful in finding out the print year.

Now, you should use your most honest eye in order to evaluate the condition of the card. Carefully examine the card and consider the following aspects:

  • The condition of the corners of the card- rounded, creased, sharp, etc.
  • The centering of the print
  • Any surface wears & tears- can you see any bumps, creases or scratch marks? Perhaps are there any visible dents in your card?
  • Can you see any print defects?

Now you can start researching your card online. This will help you determine the approximate value of the card that you own. You could use eBay for example to search for a particular card and see for much it sells. By checking β€œsold listings” you can track the price this particular card recently sold for.

As a last step, you can compare the condition of your card with the condition of the recently sold one. This will give you a clear idea on how much you can sell your card for.
