Why Collect Sports Memorabilia?

There are an estimated 60,000,000 sports fans in America, so it’s no surprise that sports cards & collectibles are the most actively traded item on the internet with over $5,000,000,000 sold every year. There are really only two criterias to collecting, there is collecting as an investment for profit and/or collecting for the pure enjoyment of it. It is typically unknown what the future value of the item will be, but what is now a memento of your favorite sports hero could become a worthwhile investment depending on how that player’s career develops. Two examples of this, fan Matt Murphy became part of history by snatching the ball that broke the all time home run record on August 7th, 2007. The Bonds ball actually went for a total of $752,467. The highest priced baseball memorabilia ever recorded was for the Mark McGwire's 62 home run ball for $3 million. One thing for sure is that each item or autograph is an original work of art.
