If you are looking for hockey cards for sale, you should know that they are widely available on the Internet. You just need to do a quick search on Google to know that aside from eBay, you can get them at specialty websites like http://comc.com.
For most people, hockey cards are worth nothing more than a few dollars per deck. However, if you check Comc.com, you will see that some cards can be actually worth thousands of dollars. We actually found one that costs $3,500. OF course, not being a hockey fan has led us to ask why a single card can be that expensive. Well, we can only guess that the card has special features that make it expensive. We took a sweep at some cards over $1,000 and found that most of them were made with scarcity in mind. This means that they were made only a few pieces in one batch. Plus, they are certified with the signature of the player that is featured on the card.
You might be wondering why anyone would want to pay thousands of dollars for a card. It does not make sense. However, if you have done any card trading in the past, you would know that it can be lucrative. But this really depends on several factors, like the popularity of the player.
For your own sake, though, if you want to start buying and selling cards for the purpose of profit, do NOT do it. Not unless if you know the different factors that can make a card more expensive than others.
We said before that a player’s popularity can play a role in the price. It’s not the only factor, though. IF you have seen the program Pawn Stars on the History Channel and have observed how appraisers of sports merchandise work, you will see that there are tiny nuances that can spell the difference between an item that is worth hundreds of dollars and one that costs thousands of dollars.
But if you are a great hockey fan and want to buy cards just because you are passionate about the sports, then, by all means, go ahead and go on a shopping spree. However, it would be better if you buy stuff that is not so expensive. If you search for hockey cards on nytritons.org, eBay and Amazon, you will see that you can get a deck of cards for only $23. And you would already have cards that have superstars and hall of fame players in them.
The top selling deck of cards on Amazon has a surprising number of 400, In other words, the cards the contain the images of 400 players individually on each of them. If that is not a great number of players, we don’t know what is. The good thing about it is that they are neatly packaged in four boxes and the four boxes are packed into one large box.
