About 3 million people collect them in the U.S. and Canada. You can buy, sell and trade baseball cards at hobby shops, flea markets, garage sales, auctions and on the internet. These are some of the most common terms used in the trade.

  • All-Star Baseball Cards – All-star baseball is a popular board game created in 1941. The cards used in these game have become collectible.
  • Base Cards – Base cards are the bulk of numbered parts in a set. They show the player’s photo on the front and statistics on the back. Base cards with little collectible value are called “commons.”
  • Price Guides – Price guides list the appraisal price of cards in mint condition. You can find guides that list more than a million cards from minor and major leagues.

  • Rookie Cards – A rookie card is a player’s first trading card appearance by a major brand. Rookie year cards such as parallels, inserts and sub-sets aren’t technically rookie cards, and hold less value.
  • Subsets – Subsets are cards within a pack that feature unique design themes celebrating a legend of the game. These differ from a more rare variety, inserts, which also have special designs, but aren’t included as part of a set.
  • Vintage – The term ‘vintage’ is used informally to describe old baseball cards. For collectible purposes, truly vintage cards are older than 1980.

Hang on to them and their worth may increase over time. It is important to maintain them though. Keep them encased in plastic to preserve them. Rare ones from heroes and old all-stars will exchange for the best prices. Collecting baseball cards is a great activity. You don't have to be a serious investor. You can just be in it for fun or as a hobby. Besides, more recent cards aren't increasing in worth as much as a player's card from years ago. The irony is that such an artifact kept in a pristine environment might lose value if it looks like it hasn't aged. Also, there are fewer rare cards, because there are many enthusiasts acquiring them. You don't need to keep these artifacts for financial gain, however. They can still offer tremendous fun for kids of all ages. It's enjoyable to open up a new pack to look for ones you haven't seen before. You can assemble an entire team with cards. If you're looking for a hobby you can enjoy with your family this could be the one.
