I'm Walt Case. I own Card Traders of Austin in Austin, Texas. We sell a variety of sports cards and sports memorabilia. Your collection may contain football cards and your first question may be how do I obtain the value of my football cards? Probably the place you'll want to start is with a publication called Beckett. The Beckett price guide is published every other month and it contains the price of football cards that have a little bit more value than just a standard, common card. That is just a guide. That's a guide that you want to look at to begin to determine the value of your football card. There are a lot of things that go into making up value. One of the probably most important is the condition of your card. Is your card have creases in it? Is it written on? Does it have bent corners? Does it have stains on it? All of those things degrade the card and also degrade the value of the card. So it's very important that you keep your card in pristine condition. The other way that it's going to affect the value of the card is how many of those cards are out there and what is the demand for that card? If that card is in very, very high demand, and are not very many of them out there such as numbered cards, then the value of that card is probably going to be a little bit higher.
