Editor’s Blog: Investing in Cards, PSA Plans, What the Puck?

Is it possible to invest in baseball cards?  Yes, if you know what you’re doing.

It’s no secret that some of the hobby’s highest grade and scarce cards almost always rise in value over time.  There’s still more demand than supply when it comes to T206 Honus Wagner cards.

Some, however, think there’s money to be made everywhere.  It’s one of the biggest mistakes alternative investors or recreational investors make. Ron Dicker of AOL Money/Finance got some insight from the pros about what to do and what not to do.


PSA will be at this year’s National Sports Collectors Convention in Chicago, taking submissions, doing some grading, talking about their east coast office and giving away some freebies.

You can pick up a free copy of Sportscard Market Report, which offers a graded card price guide and some nifty articles.

You can also snare a free 24×32 Babe Ruth poster  featuring  images and collectibles of the Sultan of Swat. It’ll be handed out at the door to show attendees. Only a limited number of the  posters were created especially for this year’s National.


Despite a nice reward, the puck Patrick Kane shot into the net that resulted in a Stanley Cup victory for the Chicago Blackhawks last year still hasn’t surfaced.
