Trading Card Central - Price Guides

We all want to know the value of the trading cards we have. So, what is the best way to find out? The best methods are through online price guides, monthly magazines or annual books.

Many collectors use a combination of all methods to help determine the value of their collection. For example, online price guides often provide a free or inexpensive method for checking the value of key cards. Monthly magazines offer the added convenience of being able to check prices when you're away from the computer (at a card shop or show). Finally, annual books often provide the most complete listing of cards and prices, especially for oddball cards and sets.

Maximizing the Value of Cards

Note: In order to determine the value of any trading card, it is very important to first determine the quality of the card or the grade. Please see our Grading section for more information. Also, any card only maintains its value if it is kept in good condition.
