All Vintage Cards Large Cap Value Basketball Portfolio

The All Vintage Cards Large Cap Basketball Portfolio is a collection of ten high-priced vintage basketball cards that we think have great long-term investment potential. 

As we discussed in our introduction piece, we are launching three portfolios for each major sport–Large Cap, Mid Cap, and Small Cap.

For those not familiar with the lexicon, this corresponds to mutual fund portfolios in the investment world.  Large-Cap within the investment space equates to a portfolio of the equity market’s largest companies.

For this All Vintage Cards Large Cap Value Basketball Portfolio we have selected ten cards, each with a value of $3000 or more.

Note that these selections are based on what we perceive as ‘relative’ value in the marketplace, meaning that we think these cards offer a good value versus other comparative cards. 

I will also note that this information is not investment advice, nor are we making any promises in relation to future performance.  Please use your own judgment and budget when accounting for any acquisitions of cards in this portfolio.

Ten Cheap Honus Wagner Cards For Collectors On A Budget

wagner-fan-crazeThe T206 Honus Wagner card is one of the most valuable cards in the hobby.

Most collectors equate Honus Wagner with his T206 card and aren’t aware of his playing day and later year cards that can fit into some collector budgets.

We highlighted two Wagner cards in our ‘All Vintage Value Portfolio’, however recent momentum in the market has carried those cards to the line of un-budget-friendly territory.  A few of his cards were also featured in a Caramel Cards investment piece.

So, let’s take a look at a few Wagner cards that budget-oriented collectors might be interested in.  I loosely used the word ‘Cheap’ in the title of this post, and my definition of ‘budget’ here’ is $1500 or less. 

Most people wouldn’t call $1500 cheap and neither would I, but it’s mostly relative to where Wagner’s other cards are valued.

In addition, in order to fit under that price range, in most instances, you need to consider a card in poorer condition.   Also, opt for a graded copy from SGC or BVG or even raw if you have the chops to identify a counterfeit and you should be able to save some money.

Step By Step Guide To Valuing Your Collection For Resale

One of the most common questions I get relates to figuring out the value of a collection and how it should be priced if selling it.  

This is typically a common concern for newer collectors, those that have inherited a collection, or those that are returning to the hobby after a long hiatus.

It can be quite complicated to figure out a card’s value, especially if you’ve never bought or sold a card before.

While we have provided info on valuing cards, I thought it might be helpful to take a ‘live’ look at a collection that was sent to me.  

Hopefully, this guide will help you determine accurate resale values for your cards, but if you’re still left scratching your head, feel free to shoot us an email at help@allvintagecards.com
