News-Antique.com - Jul 11,2008 - Sports collectors, dealers and auction houses now have a place to track the top selling vintage graded sports cards each and every day through the launch of the Sports Card Top Ten Lists on SportsCollectorsDaily.com.
In a sponsorship arrangement with VintageCardPrices.com, Sports Collectors Daily offers a list of the top ten prices realized for vintage baseball, football, basketball, hockey and other sports cards over the previous seven-day period. Broken down by sport, the five Sports Card Top Ten Lists tracks sales of individual graded cards by the major auction houses as well as those conducted via eBay and rank them 1-10 by selling price. The list is updated 365 days per year and like every page on Sports Collectors Daily, the information is free to view.
Pricing baseball cards is one of the more popular pastimes on the internet, but until recently it was often difficult and current data was often difficult to obtain. The Sports Card Top Ten Lists will give collectors of all graded vintage sports cards the opportunity to get a quick overview of their marketplace and perhaps track the real value of their collection. Utilizing information gathered by Vintage Card Prices, the lists provide the title of the card sold, as well as its grade and final selling price. Additional information about recent sales of specific cards is available through membership at VCP.
“The vintage card market continues to grow and the professional grading and authentication companies have increased the amount of money spent on high-grade material,” said Sports Collectors Daily managing editor Rich Mueller. “It’s probably the most active, vibrant part of the sports memorabilia industry. The hobby itself changes every day and people like to know which cards are generating the most bidding interest. The Top Ten Lists are perfect for getting that information quickly.”
Through one mouse click, collectors and dealers will now be able to quickly monitor which cards have generated the highest winning bids in the seven-day window.
