Good Questions: Sets vs. Individual Cards? Use Boxes or Binders?
Dear Babe: I have collected a lot of cards over the years. I would like to know if I should try to collect cards needed to complete sets or just sell the cards I have that have value. Also, when it comes to storing cards, I know boxes are cheaper, but it makes it harder to see what you have, not to mention the chance of damaging a card putting it into or taking it out of the box. Putting them in binders is more expensive, but they're easier to view.
Mel Monie Jr., Grand Island, Neb.

Two good questions that aren't focused on the value of an item. Good job. Certainly when it comes to your commons, they're only worth something when they are part of a set. But most sets from the late 1980s and into the 1990s aren't worth that much. I don't give advice on buying and selling, but I've told others they can try to sell off the valuable cards or use the commons in a package deal. They're probably worth more if you itemize on your taxes. You can donate them to a children's ward at a hospital or to special education teachers in your area and then write off the donation.

Ace Authentic Brings High End to Tennis Cards
Just in time for the U.S. Open, Ace Authentic recently released its 2005 Signature Series set - essentially the first "high end" tennis card set, with all the bells and whistles collectors have come to associate with baseball, basketball, football and hockey issues.

The Florida-based company made a name for itself selling posters, photos, calendars, apparel, autographs and other tennis memorabilia before issuing its first officially-licensed tennis card set early this year, taking over for the defunct NetPro company.

Sports Cards: A Little Slice of Vegas
Josh, a typical 13-year-old kid, rushes into his local 7-Eleven with a fist full of money he earned from mowing lawns that day. He quickly walks up to the counter and purchases $30 worth of scratch-off lottery tickets from the store clerk. Josh promptly scratches the tickets, one after another, discarding the losing tickets to the side. Consequentially, one of the tickets produces $50 in winnings. The $50 ticket is immediately turned in for another $50 in tickets and the process is repeated.

Does a 13-year-old boy scratching lottery tickets sound legitimate to you? Well, a similar process occurs daily in the sports card industry. In my opinion, it's hard to see the difference between buying a lottery ticket at a convenience store and a premium pack of collector cards. Sound silly? Not so fast.

Featured Sports Cards Review:
Tennis Anyone? First Cards Hit the Market Since 2003
2005 Ace Authentic Debut Edition Tennis Trading Card Factory Set The 2005 Ace Authentic Debut Edition tennis trading card factory set, produced by Ace Authentic of Tampa, Florida, arrived on the market in January offering the first officially licensed tennis cards since the 2003 NetPro products.

Building on previous tennis card products, the new cards from Ace have a nearly identical design to the NetPro Premier Edition set. Cards in the Debut Edition set feature a standard front design that integrates the player's name, country name and country flag over a full-bleed, color action shot. The card backs follow a standard design of player vitals; career statistics including tour record, rankings and prize money; career highlights; and the card numbers. The back also includes a small black-and-white headshot of each player.
