As I’ve endured the NFL lockout it has reminded me how few things in sports are stable these days. At the end of every NFL season I sweat out the future of several free agents. Will Nnamdi Asumugha stay in Oakland? Where will Michael Huff play in 2011? Can the Raiders keep both Michael Bush and Zach Miller? After these questions are answered I will have to learn about all the new players wearing Silver and Black as I did with Kamiron Whimbley, Quenton Groves, and Jason Campbell last year.

Like most collectors I love to share the fact that I collect sports cards with my co-workers. Which leads me to this article, I’ve been at the same company now for eleven years and I’ve been asked to look at cards co-workers have found a lot. I find this interesting but usually not very fruitful, as most of the time it is late 80s early 90s mass produced junk wax.
I really don’t like telling co-workers that what they have isn’t even worth the cardboard it’s printed on, but let’s face it I have to be honest. More >

Throw it back! Throw it back! One of the most enduring lines from sports cinema shows young Henry Rowengardner being pressured by the crowd to return a home run ball in the film Rookie of the Year. The young teen gives in to the crowd and launches the ball back onto the field where it lands in the catcher’s mit and the story goes on from there. Not exactly the focal point of the movie, but I will examine the thought process behind this act as a basis for a potential sportscardforum.com contest.

I have collected cards for many years now. I started collecting due to my love of basketball, I started collecting basketball cards when I was about 11 and collected for about 5 years. I enjoyed collecting my favorite players and all of the conversations that arose between friends and I over who was the best, who was better, who was going to be a star, and so on. At that time card collecting was viewed as acceptable due to me being young and it was supported by family and friends. Eventually I stopped collecting towards More >

If I had the chance to run a contest and determine what kind of contest it would be I would chose to do the Who Wants It More contest. A contest that the prize is a nice card from a certain player or if there’s more than one card divide the contest into submissions for each card. The contest will reward the biggest fan with a card of the player that he admires the most. The idea is that a part of our hobby is preservation like grading but also protecting the card for years More >

Let us fast forward to the year 2061. Fifty years may seem like an eternity to a lot of the young collectors on this site, but in truth it is not very long when dealing with collectibles. In sports card collecting this would only take us back to the year 1961 from today’s date. Let us imagine three 25 year old baseball card collectors are discussing the cards of the greatest baseball player to ever play the game. Let us assume they are talking about Bryce Harper who in his 25 year career had posted the More >
