Like all collectibles, some sports cards increase in value and a few can become very valuable. Determining a card's value is based on a number of factors including the popularity of the player, the card's scarcity, it's condition, and demand among collectors. A card can be scarce but if there's no demand for it, it's value may not be to great.
Q: What are some of the ways to collect cards ? There are several different ways to collect cards. For example, you can try to collect all the cards in a given set. Or you can focus on cards of your favorite team or even just your favorite player.
Some people only collect Rookie cards while others only collect cards of Hall-of-Famers. Because of the high cost of vintage sports cards today a growingly popular way to collect sportscards is "Type Collecting".
"Type Collecting" is collecting just one of each "type" (or different issue) made. To keep costs down, on some of the scarcer more expensive issues you can simply add a less expensive "common" to your collection. While on more common or recent issues you can select your favorite player or a card from your favorite team.
No matter how you collect - the key is to have fun !

Vintage Baseball Wire Photos
Official authentic vintage UPI/AP Wirephotos/Laserphotos are very limited with
usually only 1 sent to each major newspaper. Transmitted electronically by the
UPI/AP only to subscribing newspapers for possible use in their sports sections,
the photos were printed in black & white on electro-static printers and are far from the
quality of photos we have become accustomed to. |
The photos were usually transmitted in 3 stages, CYAN, MAGENTA & YELLOW , which the newspaper, if they wanted, could then combine into a color photograph for their issue. Condition of most photos ranges from EX to NEAR MINT. As a bonus, some photos have the blue-line cropping marks made by editors prior to their appearing in the paper.
Scarce, interesting and a snapshot of history, most wire photos are of major subjects and moments in history and make great collectibles for player and team collectors ! Wirephotos and laserphotos are no longer transmitted in this manner (I believe they stopped in the early 1990's). Images are now transmitted directly from computer to computer with no need for an actual hardcopy photo to be produced.
Images of nearly all wirephotos are available. To save space and time, most were produced with a low resolution digital camera. The resulting images do not do the wirephotos justice. The wirephotos are much nicer than they appear in the images.
These are from the archives of the San Diego Union Tribune and will make a nice addition to your collection.
