Q:

How do you price basketball cards?

A:

The price of basketball cards is based primarily on the card's brand, year and condition. Basketball cards can also be priced by consulting pricing guides available from memorabilia websites, such as TuffStuff.com and Beckett.com.

Attending sports memorabilia shows can also help an owner price a basketball card. Comparing prices and bids on online auction sites, such as eBay, provides an additional method of pricing basketball cards. As a rule, cards in pristine, mint and near-mint conditions sell for a higher price than the same card in poor condition; tears, scuffs and creases lower the potential value of a basketball card.
