  • New Collector

    I'm trying to get into collecting baseball cards/memorabilia again. I dabbled with it, but not very seriously. I want to know where I should start, what cards or anything like that. Even information about memorabilia information would be helpful. Thanks.

    Hard to say, exactly, where to start. What aspect of collecting are you interested in? Current stuff? Vintage?

    And why does a Red Sox fan have a Braves logo? Intriguing....

      Collect what you like, not what someone says you should collect.

      Treat it as a fun hobby, like card collecting was for almost 100 years (1887-1981), not as an investment..... and you will be happy.

      A popular one that involves modern and vintage stuff is to collect cards etc. from your favorite team.

      If its the Red Sox you have 107 years of stuff to look for.

      If its the Braves then you can go back even farther, 132 years.

          I enjoy collecting cards/memorabilia of Canadian players (as I am from Canada), I know of other users that collect cards of players from there State or surrounding towns. Or even that share the same birthday. I'm not really a "collector" of a certain brand or any range in years.

          There are many options to what and who you collect, just trying to help with ideas.
          "I see no reason why a small-market team like the Twins or Expos can't continue to remain competitive, just because it lacks players," Selig said.

            It all depends. And frankly... it's entirely up to you on what to collect. Some members here are only interested in current year cards (2006, 2007)... while others collect "old school" cards. Ie; 1950's and 1960's cards. Like Jayme said above some only collect cards from players from where they are from. Another option is buying cards/sets from your favorite team.
            It's a fun hobby with a ton of options.

            Memorabilia: Buy your favorite teams hats, jerseys, tee shirts, a autographed bat of from your favorite player, miniature stadium collectibles, ticket stubs from various games, team photos, the sky is the limit as far as memorabilia goes.
