Maximizing Value in a Hot Sports Card MarketSpeaker: Ian Clarke
Have you thought about getting into the sports card collecting market or adding sports cards valuation to your menu of services? This session will focus on what collectors look for in listings, how to avoid the ‘red flags’ in your listings and what the hottest items in the market are. Even if you deal in mid- to low-grade or ungraded “raw” cards, there is a strong market for these if you connect to the right buyers.
Upon completing this session, you will be able to:
- Assess and appraise the value of items to be listed, spotting potential “diamonds in the rough”
- Photograph, describe and list items to maximize the realized sales price
- Identify genuine items versus likely fake items
- Identify online collector venues for advertising, networking and learning opportunities
