Re: “I thought my baseball card collection had value. It did, but only to me.

hey Niel. to answer your questions about autographs. I go to sportscardforum.com. I find the address of the player I am looking for. send them a letter, their card and a return envelope. usually 95 percent of the time they sign and return. send them a letter telling them how much you enjoyed their years of play. it is a great hobby. also gives me something to pass down to my sons when they get older

Hi all. In case anyone wonders how to get autographs thru the mail. Easy way is sportscardforum.com you have the addresses of the players. You write a letter to them. And send return envelope. I have had great success. Wade Boggs. Troy aikman. Terry Bradshaw. To name a few. Hope this helps

Re: “I thought my baseball card collection had value. It did, but only to me.

This is a good story. I too have cards from the 90's. I would buy the boxes in hopes that 30 years later they would be worth 3X or more what I paid for them. Even though I know I wont be able to sell them at their present condition (mint) due to the value of the cards these days. I at least know they are worth something to me. They represent a chapter in my life.

Also this is for Sara Mertz, I am so sorry for your loss. As for the cards you are buying on ebay, don't think of them as junk. They represent a connection between you and your son. He would be happy that you are doing this in his honor. I think your husband knows why you are buying the cards. Your mailman should he happy , you are paying his salary 44 cents a stamp (lol). Within the past year I started collecting autographs through the mail. Since then I have over 100 autographs. I would send the baseball/football/basketball cards to the players homes, they would sign them and return them back to me. My wife thinks its waste of time and money. I tell her it raises the value of the cards and it gives me something to pass down to my son when he gets older.
PZ as for your cards they range from a few dollars to $100+ if you have a Joe Montana 1981 topps rookie card mint.
If anyone wants to learn how to start doing autographs through the mail let me know. I will give you the info you need to start.
