There is nothing better than getting an 8×10 baseball photo of your favorite player and having them autograph it. The photos are nice just by themselves but when you are able to get one that is signed it not only has sentimental value but it gives it more value overall. Collecting baseball photos is a hobby that has been around for a long time and if you do it the right way, anyone can build a large and meaningful collection of 8×10 baseball photos.
The best thing about going to eBay is that you will be able to find the exact photos that you are looking for because of the size of their inventory. You may want to collect nothing but Hall of Famers, your favorite players from your youth, or a variety of signed photos from players who suited up for your favorite team. Stick with fully authenticated photos from a reputable company. We’ve curated a list of them here. You can also find autographed 8x10s via sites like SportsMemorabilia.com.
The hobby of collecting signed sports photographs owes its popularity to the variety of poses, the varied colors, the easy storage (most fit in simple, large plastic pages that can be placed in a baseball card type album) and the price. Autographed 8×10 photos are among the most inexpensive pieces of signed sports memorabilia you can find–much cheaper than a jersey and often less expensive than an autographed baseball.
Signed photos are easier to authenticate and they’re even cheaper to ship than a ball or jersey. Not to say the latter aren’t great collectibles–they surely are. However, with signed 8×10 baseball photos, you can build a nice, sizable collection quickly and affordably.
For many, collecting 8×10 baseball photos is just as popular as collecting baseball cards. With a little bit of searching and patience, you will find out that you can have a collection that can be admired by you and other baseball lovers for the great stories it tells.
