Collectible Sports Memorabilia!

Sports memorabilia is a huge industry for both collectors and sellers. The ball that Mark McGuire hit for his 70th homer went for $3,000,000. The jersey worn by Babe Ruth went for more than $4,000,000 in an auction. It was his 1920s road jersey and has the distinct record of being the most expensive piece of game memorabilia sold. Collecting game memorabilia or other items used by sports figures during the event is a pastime enjoyed by fans and sellers. The market is always changing and finding the right time to sell is an art in itself. The price of a baseball or bat that was used to set a record is worth less if the owner proves to have been charged up on steroids. That is the risk that both collectors and sellers take when they get into buying and selling for profit. Those who just love the game, sport or athlete are more inclined to buy a piece of memorabilia that will help them to remember the time they were at the event. Someone who has the tire from Dale Earnhardt’s only Daytona 500 win will enjoy it more as a souvenir than something they can sell on the market. No matter why someone buys collectibles, they have plenty of places to search for pieces to own. They can buy collectible sports memorabilia at in addition to hanging out at ballparks, race tracks, boxing rings or rummaging through garage sale merchandise. Those who love to collect can always find a treasure somewhere.
