Most people think of baseball cards when they hear the term "sports cards." However, there are many sports that feature their players and athletes on cards. One of the most prolific is hockey, which has had players on trading cards for more than 100 years. Other featured sports include soccer, tennis, golf, wrestling, boxing, mixed martial arts, and auto racing. As with all trading cards, condition and rarity are the keys to whether a sports trading card Is valuable or not. Cards should be in mint condition, meaning that there is no signs of damage or wear on the card, including bent corners, tears, markings, stains, or offset printing issues. Ideally, the cards will be in sealed plastic sleeves and be kept in a cool, dry, dark place. Hockey sports cards are usually a great value and you can find many superstars, both current and from the past, for low prices. For those just looking to get into the hobby, consider buying sports card lots, which feature hundreds or even thousands of cards for sale at a low price. Most of the cards will be commons, but you can find a few gems in there, too. A vast inventory of sports cards is available on eBay, and sports-loving fans can find that missing cards for their collection or can start that new collection off on the right foot.
