Sports cards collecting…when they say these words, most people picture a teenage boy but is this picture accurate? While the masses tend to think so, I personally see this as nothing more than a generalization. These days, collecting is more and more a big budget affair meaning that to collect; you need a certain amount of available income. This makes your average collector a wage earner although there are still some low end releases out there. As for our typical collector being a male, it is probably true in a majority of cases but more and more females More >

Description Every new release of The Cup brings with it a huge buzz of excitement among collectors, and there is a reason for this: this set is just too impressive. Everything from the wrapping to the base cards is jaw dropping. The Cup comes in a fairly big box, inside of which you find a tin in which there is a smaller box, and once you open that one, you can finally get your hands on the cards. Wonderful cards I must say as all of the cards are of a high quality, very thick and come so very well packed More >

There is furthermore what could only be described as a scratching pattern around the player, the edges of which are reminiscent or ice. More >
