By Brendan White aka SteakNchop

     After a successful all-time best positions players ever article, players that had to be retired, I think I better make a modern one.

There are a few categories people on SCF are placed in. The first is,

Can I Make Money in Sports Cards?

By Brendan White aka SteakNchop


One of the normal “newbie” sports card questions is on the simple side, but has so much to it. The question is; “Can I make money collecting?”  The general consensus on this from most collectors is; “Have you gone mad? Are you serious!?!? You literally think you can make money this way!?!? Impossible!!!! It just can’t be done!” Guess what? It can be. Here’s how. 

While of course making money in this hobby is hard, it is very possible. It’s just how you go about it. If you do not know what you are doing, I More >
