The market for baseball autographs is still strong according to one long-time sports memorabilia dealer.
Recession? What recession?
While spending in some sectors of the sports memorabilia market have taken a hit–and your 1980s cards haven’t gotten red hot yet–there is plenty of business if you’ve got the goods.
Florida-based autograph dealer Bill Corcoran has a massive stock of authentic pieces in his inventory. His customers have continued to place orders despite the sluggish economy, searching for that rare signature from somewhere in baseball’s past.
His favorites are the elusive players who didn’t become regulars on the show circuit and may reside outside the U.S. He told the St. Petersburg Times that hobbies are important when times are tough.
