America’s attics are still producing vintage baseball memorabilia.
Long-time dealers remember the days of setting up in hotel rooms, hoping a nice collection of old baseball cards might walk through the door. 25 or 30 years ago, more often than not, one did. Sometimes more than one.
It’s still happening on some level.
Although the value of old cards is now widely known, there are still plenty of other items not yet discovered by those looking to profit from them.
When times are tough–like now–appraisal fairs and ‘treasure hunts’ are commonly seen advertised in local media. Many times, they turn up nothing. Other times, something interesting pops up, like what Heritage Galleries found not too far from its Dallas headquarters.
