So many topics covered in The Sports Card Show Podcast today.
Recent Trading Card Releases:
2010 Topps Series 1 Baseball This set has everything that we come to expect from Topps and a little extra. The Pie In The Face PITF Short Print SP base cards have been popular with Yankees Collectors. The Topps 1 Million Card Giveaway redemption cards are inserted 1:6 Packs and are a random shot at any base card Topps has ever made. Be sure to check out the full review of 2010 Topps Series 1 Baseball at Sports Card Radio.
2009 Playoff National Treasures Football This set may have lost its luster as a high-end brand as I saw many 1 color and some sticker autographs in some box break videos that I’ve seen recently of this product. We may have to go back and lower the grade we give this set in our review of 09 National Treasures Football.
2009 Playoff Contenders Football I might even like this set for value over Playoff National Treasures. However the only thing I don’t like is that the design takes away from the signature on these cards. 8:12 Boxes contains 5 Autograph Cards instead of 4. Check out the complete SP Rookie Ticket Checklist and our Full Review of 2009 Playoff Contenders Football Here.
Selling your cards….just not on eBay: There are many places to sell your cards online. Check Out My Cards has gained popularity over a short period of time with collectors. I give out 4 more other options as well on the show. Just be sure to read through all the terms and conditions before you jump in and spend serious time listing cards on a site you haven’t used before.
How to price #1/1/Cards Probably the best know method is to compare the price with a comparable #1/1 card. If it is difficult to find a particular player, just comparing him to another player of similar skill and popularity. Because 1/1 cards aren’t as ‘rare’ as they used to be (when they were first hitting the hobby) you can sometimes compare to cards serial #/3 #/5 and lower.
We talk about 4 Players that wore #43:
Dennis Eckersley – Probably the 2nd best closer of all time after Mariano Rivera, depending on who you ask.
Troy Palamalu – Seems like how Troy goes, so goes the Steelers. If he is healthy in 2010, expect the Steelers to be fighting for another Super Bowl.
Mychal Thompson – Went to 4 NBA Finals and won 2 NBA Championships with the Los Angeles Lakers. Best known for backing up one of the greatest centers of all time Kareem Abdul Jabar.
Tom Nelson – Cincinnati Bengals 2009 Rookie – Best known for his coverage on ‘Hard Knocks’ HBO’s TV show about the Bengals 09 Training Camp in Georgetown.
