“As America’s favorite pastime, baseball is a diverse and rich field for collectibles. It offers choices for collectors with little money and those with deep pockets.
The ubiquitous baseball card is an easy way to enter the market, although rare baseball cards can bring a hefty price. Today, you can buy last year’s entire set of 1,000 major league cards for under $40, while a Pete Rose rookie card will cost $600-$800. An old tobacco trading card of Honus Wagner, one of baseball’s greatest shortstops, brought more than $1.2 million at auction.”
