Top Tips For Sports Cards Collecting

Top Tips For Sports Cards Collecting

New to collecting cards? With the popularity of the hobby exploding, a lot of people are collecting for the first time OR returning after a long hiatus - especially if you collected in the 90s.

At Cherry we suggest educating your self on forums, facebook groups and ebay as well as watching streams of live breaks so you can learn about the different card sets available, manufacturers and who collectors like the most.


If there is one tip for new collectors to know it's this;

Be patient.

The sweet collections you see posted on social media can take DECADES to build. Cherry just bought a 7 figure collection here in Australia that had cards from the 60s in it. If you want to build a sick collection its going to take years, not days.

I know this because I've done it myself - I chased every set that people online said was gonna be hot, I tried to collect every rookie coming out and ended up with a collection that was a MESS. That leads us to the next piece of advice;

Pick a niche.

Do you love Larry Bird? LeBron? 80s Lakers? Pick a niche that you really love and go after it because thats whats gonna help you build collection you might work on for life.

Also don’t forget about proper storage solutions. Don’t use D or O ring binders, they damage cards over time and make a mess of them. Use a nine page collectors portfolio, these usually hold around ninety cards single sided and are flat, very easy to store.

For your slabbed cards, you can buy team bags big enough to hold them and this will protect them from some aeration and condensation. You can also buy tool cases from SuperCheap Auto that are padded, and you can cut the padding or ever make your own foam inserts to keep the UV off your cards to ensure fading is minimal.

Also get storage card boxes for your bulk stuff, you never know WHO is going to hit it big…. looks at Grayson and Gianis Prizm Rookies
