To a devoted hobbyist, collecting baseball cards is more than just an interest. It is a form of investment.In fact, a New York Times article stated that the prices of baseball trading cards have risen over the pastfew decades that it virtually became a multimillion-dollar industry.

So how can a novice collector benefit from a pack of unopened 1963 Topps vintage cards that you wereable to stash from your grandpa’s stuff? Or how can you take advantage from vintage baseball tradingcard packs in general?

If you’re interested to know more, then we suggest that you stick around as we’re going to talk aboutwhy it pays to collect vintage packs baseball cards in this entry.


The Unspoken Wealth Of Unopened Baseball Card Packs

Without a doubt, card collectors will always go for individual player cards because of their hugemonetary value. Like for instance, the value of a 1989 Upper Deck Ken Griffey Jr. rookie card hasincreased exponentially in today’s market due to the recent baseball card boom while a Mickey Mantlecard in good condition could fetch around $1.2 million.

Still, some niche collectors prefer investing in sealed unopened baseball cards because of the followingreasons:

  1. Mint is mint – The thing about sealed vintage packs is that they keep the cards in immaculatecondition regardless of what the player card may be. And collectors put so much value on pristine itemsbecause of the obvious reason that they look better than old worn out cards. Likewise, the frailty of thecards is not questioned since they are excellently preserved from the time they were made.
  2. The “Thrill Factor” Remains – Collecting sealed vintage card packs gives you the feeling of thrill andsecurity in the sense that you don’t know what you’re getting which is one of greatest feelings thatcollectors what to feel in their collection. And at the same time, it also gives you security knowing whatyou have on hand is valuable and could worth a lot of money than its original price.
  3. The value of the pack increases as long as you keep it unopened – Unless you are very curious andwants to open the pack, it’s still recommended to keep it sealed as much as possible as the value ofthese packs is expected to rise every year.

Consider this: Baseball cards are more than a child’s play for they are now considered as a multimillion-dollar industry by Forbes. So if the value of the cards has increased to staggering amounts in 2008, howmuch more if the packs are left unopened until 2020 or more?

Of course, some factors might come into play like the year of the pack, the condition, and the brand. Butconsidering the upward trend of baseball card prices, then it’s still safe to say that you could be lookingat a significant amount of money in your investment.

Thank you!
