There used to be a commonly accepted principle in the sports trading card business, “dealers buy cold and sell hot”. This stems from the days when three manufacturers meant three sets, and when a dealer had everything from the current year, the dealer simply bought cards released the previous year and so on until he had everything. The affordable way to get more of everything was to buy cold and stock up.
Those days are long gone. In the era of the novelty card, 1 of 1′s, jersey and autographed cards, a company with unlimited financial resources still More >

Every player starts out as a rookie. No matter how the player gets into the league, they have to start off somewhere. Some, of course, play better than others. This year’s crop of rookies is no different, as we’ve had a mixture of successes and disappointments throughout the first part of this year’s season.

The president of the United States was Richard M. Nixon and the Dow-Jones average was at 842.

In yet another high end release, Upper Deck recently launched Black. With great designs, the cards look incredibly smooth and slick. As with any high priced product, the checklist includes plenty of memorabilia and autographs. On most cards, the dominant color is black and depending on the insert set of the cards you pull various colors complete the effect. Even the outer packaging of this release says high end; with a black box, complimented by a golden seal and two mini-boxes sealed on the inside it will take you a while to get to the actual cards.

It’s this time of the year again, the 2008-09 season is fast approaching. Let’s take a look back at the off-season and look ahead to what we should expect this year in the National Basketball Association (NBA).

They had a tough road to the championship, playing a full seven game series against the Atlanta Hawks and the Cleveland Cavaliers, a six More >
