History of Basketball

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

There was a period of time, just a few short decades ago, that not a single company was producing basketball cards – not even industry giant Topps. In 1986, the Fleer Company produced Michael Jordan’s definitive rookie card. As Jordan’s on court career reached new levels of the stratosphere, so too did the value of his rookie card. Basketball card collectors began to re-evaluate the long forgotten art of collecting and created a huge demand for not only new basketball card products, but vintage cards as well.


The Vintage Years

The earliest basketball cards can be traced to the legendary 1933 Sport Kings series, a multi-sport set from the Goudey Gum Company. The set included four basketball players of the era; Eddie Burke, Nat Holman, Joe Lapchick, and Ed Wachter. It would be another 15 years before another basketball set was made and it was in 1948 that Bowman produced its first, and only, hardwood set. This set includes one of the most valuable basketball cards in existence, the George Mikan rookie card. A 72-card, full color set that includes five additional hall of fame players, the ’48 Bowman set is a holy grail for many hoops collectors.

Card Show Round Up

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

It’s been a little while since we last posted and I thought I would share a few photos from the last card show. We were lucky enough to have a visit from former NHL’r Nathan Robinson. He took a few photos with some of the people and signed a few cards, just what we needed to make the card show that much more enjoyable.

The Past Holds the Key to Housing the Modern Hit

Posted by: | Comments Comments Off

Ultra Pro’s Vintage card sleeves offer collectors the ideal level of protection for the modern memorabilia card. The sleeves were designed for oversized vintage cards, but work perfectly for 90% of today’s hits and thicker stocked cards.

VintageSLEEVES Trading Card Tips: Memorabilia Card SleevesWhen it comes to the preservation of card condition, one of the greatest tool at a collector’s disposal is the everyday sleeve. The top loader and magnet case are crucial when it comes to long term storage, but when ripping a box or on the run, the penny sleeve is the simplest and cheapest way to immediately preserve card condition.

Ideally, the goal is to only sleeve a card once, as “over-sleeving” can lead to needless corner and edge fatigue. This means it’s important to have the right sleeve for the right card on hand when ripping a pack, box or case.

Sleeving regular sized cards (20-50 point thickness) is easy, it’s finding the ideal sleeve for the modern memorabilia card that often presents a mystery……. that is until now – Hands down the best sleeves for relic cards are Ultra-Pro’s Vintage Card Sleeves, which are over-sized, thick and provide premium protection for 90% of cards larger than a standard card.

What separates Ultra Pro’s Vintage Sleeves from the no-name brand sleeves geared toward housing hits is that Ultra Pro’s are thick and were created to keep the most delicate of over-sized vintage cards in tip top shape. In fact, they work so well that many times I don’t even feel the need to use an additional top loader.

Ultra Pro Vintage Sleeves usually cost around $1.00 for a 50-pack, which makes it an extremely useful and cost effective way to preserve every thick card in your collection.
