Beginner Sports Memorabilia Collector

How should a new sports card collector start their collection?

We can't all start out with a Mickey Mantle signed baseball card? Where should a beginner start? I am interested in getting more into sports memorabilia. Specifically, collecting NFL and MLB cards.


I remember as a kid getting baseball and football cards for christmas almost every year. It was so fun to open up those cards to see what you got. My most memorable card was a Peyton Manning card. As he was my idol. He happened to play on my favorite team the Colts at the time too.

Everytime I went to the store as a kid I wanted to get a pack of cards. They conveniently were placed right by the checkout. Great marketing strategy for young sports lovers like myself.
I think the best way to start a sports card collection is to just start. Buy as many as you can afford. I know there are people out there that are making some serious money collecting rare sports memorabilia. I know I would probably pay good money to get a rare Peyton Manning card.
What's your favorite card in your collection? Let me know in the comments. I would love to hear from you.
