Show #12 Battle Royale UD vs Topps, On Card vs Sticker Auto’s

Don’t Call It A Comeback. We are back, sorry about the break in the action, the old Dell Crashed and Burned, but we’ve got it back up and going!!

This week is a Battle Royale between a few topics. First one is Upper Deck Products vs Topps Products and the differences between the two.  Upper Deck is know for it’s high profile athletes like Michael Jordan, Kobe Bryant, LeBron James, Tiger Woods among others.  Where Topps has its own brand along with Bowman Chrome, which produces some of the best Rookie Cards year after year in Baseball.

The other topic is On-Card Autographs vs Sticker Auto’s. I have my own thoughts on this, but I do think Sticker Autographs provide value to the collector, therefore they are a necessary evil.

Plus a BUNCH MORE!! We also announce a New Contest + Last Month’s Winner!!

Show #21 Fantasy Sports & Card Values – Error Cards – Products

This Edition of The Sports Card Show Features:

Fantasy Sports and how the popularity of Fantasy Sports has increased awareness of card values. Players are always moving in terms of fantasy value and card prices move with them.
Players that are “Hot” Fantasy wise:
Get More Pub on ESPN and other Networks
More information on-line and in newspapers

All this = More Popular and Sometimes means more valuable cards

Error Cards
1990 Frank Thomas NNOF + 1989 Fleer Billy Ripken are probably 2 of the most infamous Error Cards in the 90’s era when Err cards were sizzling!
Today we have low serial # Autographs, Jerseys, Sets and more…so the Error Card has lost its luster a bit. On top of all that Topps & Upper Deck make 10-20 “Sets” these days compared to less than 5 in the early 90’s
