Sports Memorabilia Collectible Items

Author: Daniel Smith

Every day in the life of a sports fan can be filled with special memories, and special mementos that are rich in history. The mementos might be from a sports event that the entire family has season passes to or might go to a game only once a year. Some special times are represented in some of the special pieces that freeze time in the sports history that is represented by some sports memorabilia collectible items.

There may be a special occasion in your life that you want to recognize with some sentimental sports memorabilia collectible items. Perhaps the memorabilia would be to recognize the first baseball game you ever attended with your Dad, and you wanted to try and locate a collectible, autographed baseball that was signed on that particular day.

Perhaps you might want to purchase some sports memorabilia collectible items to give to your first born son to celebrate the day that he came into your life. The item might be a two signed baseball bats that you crafted into an elegant shadow box to decorate his nursery with. The two bats might be dated with the birth date of the child, and the birth date of the parent that bestowed such a marvelous gift on their baby boy.

Some people try to accumulate all of the sports memorabilia collectible items for one particular sport. The range, on which they can base their collection, can be on the games of hockey, baseball, football, basketball, boxing, soccer, tennis, golf, NASCAR sports.

Some collectors might try to amass a collection that represents simply one item in all sports game categories to create a sports wall in their recreation room. The avid sports collector can create an outstanding conversation piece when autographed jerseys are displayed under glass cases across a wall, with the certificate of authenticity mounted directly underneath in a smaller frame.

These sports item collector’s also might want to pick and choose from among the vast number of autographed sports collectibles that are signed by their favorite players on a significant night in their life, that they could use to ornament their table tops and glassed in cabinets with, such as autograph football helmets of their favorite team, that the collector could use to match the team colors that are spread out all over the billiard room in the home.

There are many sports events that can be recognized through the purchases of sports memorabilia collectible items. If the gridiron antics are your passion, you can have your choice of sports memorabilia collectible items that are from the American Football Conference, the National Football Conference or a very special UDA jersey number collection.

For whatever sports memorabilia collectible items you choose to surround yourself with, there are autographed photographs that will compliment them quite well. The significant days and nights of your life can be reflected in sporting events that could reach out as far as the Super Bowl championship game of the year, or in the photo and mint sports memorabilia collectible items that are simply fun to collect.

Do You Know What Makes Sports Memorabilia Truly Unique And Valuable?

Do You Know What Makes Sports Memorabilia Truly Unique And Valuable?

Author: Gregg Hall

The sports memorabilia genre is a large one including collectibles of all types. While some people will immediately think of football or baseball when thinking about sports collectibles, but the fact of the matter is that there are many more kinds of sports that have valuable collectibles.

To be valuable as collectibles, the vast majority must be kept in flawless condition. The more aged and less flawed an item is, the more it will be worth in the future. A lot of people will invest in memorabilia like this for the sake of their children and grandchildren and guard it as if it were invaluable. It is an honor to be given something of such importance and is a matter of personal pride for the person who originally got the item.

Sports memorabilia covers a wide range of topics, including everything from the conventional trading cards to things owned and even worn by the sports figure that became celebrated. One area that is overlooked many times as an area of interest is that of books. Many famous sports figures have written autobiographies about their lives, both private and public. Many books like this are considered valuable just because of the individual’s popularity with the public, even if they were known for being ruthless or rude. As a matter of fact sometimes this creates eve more interest. For example, Keshawn Johnson, the former NFL football player who is now a commentator for ESPN has a new book out called “Throw Me The Damned Ball”

NASCAR is an area of the sports collectible realm that has a diverse assortment of merchandise from toy cars to leather jackets and even furniture. My dad is a huge Jeff Gordon fan and he probably owns just about anything that is available featuring Jeff Gordon.

Certain product endorsements can also provide collectible items that are deemed valuable. Timex featured Barbara Ann Scott, a female skater and a Canadian. She won an Olympic victory in 1948. That motivated sales of thousands of dolls of her likeness. These days it seems almost any sports star of any reknown at all has dolls, coffee cups, watches, and any other imaginable item with there likeness on them.

Of course,one of the most distributed collectibles in the sports memorabilia world continues to be trading cards. It’s a fairly affordable way to get a child started with a baseball card collection or some other sports card collection. Even still it can become a high cost undertaking as the child grows to be an avid die-hard fan and learns to know the value of sports card collecting. A sports collection is something that might take many years to obtain and might never be thought complete. This kind of interest will help instruct the child about responsibility among other matters. They have to keep the cards away from curious friends who may not have learned the value of collecting and as well as greedy adults who may try to take advantage.

Matt Cassel is now a Kansas City Chief. In return, the Patriots will receive a 2nd round draft pick from the Chiefs.

Tyler Thigpen started for the Chiefs last year and played surprisingly well, but the addition of Cassel should reap huge benefits for the Chiefs offense.
