Show #16 of The Sports Card Show Podcast is dedicated to the Man Himself: Joe Montana.
Should you collect Vintage Cards? Current Cards? Or Both?
Its a great question and we touch on the topic a bit today. A good strategy would be to do a mix of both and possibly go after some of the lower dollar HOF’s that are out their in any sport. Current cards are Hot for a while and usually dip off as time goes on no matter how the player does (there rare exceptions) HOF players tend to be more stable and don’t go up or down as much as current players so you can protect your investment.
We run down some of my most “Collectible” Sports Cards that should see a value increase as time goes on. Plus some of this weeks Sports Card Box Releases.
