Scarcity, condition other factors all contribute to answering the popular question, “What’s it Worth?” Collecting for the fun of it is still the best way to navigate the world of sports memorabilia, but for those thinking of buying more expensive cards for their collection--and perhaps as an alternative investment--there is a new website that aims to help collectors make wise decisions.

Baseball Card Investment offers tips for buying vintage cards, and with a certain level of sophistication necessary for showing growth as time goes on. The site offers information, collecting tips and the history of collecting baseball cards--all designed to help you understand why some players’ cards and certain eras and sets have always been ‘blue chips'

Interesting. If I was "investing" that would probably be the route I would go, at least there would be return on buying those items. Not sure it can be any worse than the stock markets right now. laugh.gif
